USF Dept. of Philosophy and Theology 2014-2015 Lecture Series
(January 21, 2015) – The Department of Philosophy and Theology at the University of Saint Francis invites you to the free public lecture, “Saint John XXIII: Beloved Revolutionary” on Thursday, February 12, 2015 at 1 p.m. on the campus of the University of Saint Francis, North Campus Auditorium, 2701 Spring Street, Fort Wayne, IN. The lecture is the fourth in a series to be offered by university faculty members throughout the academic year.
Angelo Roncalli, “Good Pope John,” was canonized a saint last April 27th. Elected pope less than five years before his death, his calling of the Second Vatican Council is seen as his least expected and greatest achievement. Sr. Jacinta Krecek, OSF, assistant professor of theology, will discuss events in the life of Angelo Roncalli, his vision and character, and ways in which his life continues to touch and inspire us today.
