Lumen Christi Institute : Magis Series on Faith & Reason - 5.18.22
The Crisis of Belief in a Secular Age: Reconciling Faith, Science, and Reason
These final two lectures in the "Magis Series on Faith and Reason" will investigate the challenges to the Catholic faith posed by modern science and contemporary disbelief.
Wednesday, May 18 Emotion, Metaphor, and Memory: Leveraging the Tools of Science in Service of Spiritual Discernment with guest lecturer Fr. John Kartje. The authentic practice of scientific research (as opposed to the strawman often caricatured as “scientism”) rests on a rich tradition of the constant encounter, and engagement, with mystery. Fr. Kartje will explore some of the methodologies of modern science to showcase their pragmatic value to anyone who is navigating a challenging spiritual journey.
