Finding a Moral Compass

Finding a Moral Compass

September 22

This course lays out the social nature of the human person, explaining that Catholic Social Teaching is the Church's conviction about the human dignity of every person, as well as stating the demands that this places on each of us if we are to honor and protect our human dignity.  

These issues will be addressed in light of the practice of discernment which seeks to understand what God is like, what you are like as your most authentic self, and how to find confidence that your desires are in sync with God's deepest desires for you. 

"The source of the moral call is the foundational experience we have of the worth and value of persons. This is the basic data upon which ethical reflection begins."  -Fr. Himes O.F.M.

Mapping Your Inner Landscape

Mapping Your Inner Landscape

October 06

This course compares growth in our spiritual life to an interior journey. Guided by a book from Dolores Leckey, we investigate how we might stay on the inner road while embracing life in the 21st Century. Join us as we discuss aspects of inner exploration: change as a dynamic of our lives; the quest for balance and solitude in a noisy demanding world; and the power of gratitude in motivating our spiritual growth. In select video segments presented by Colleen Griffith, we examine compassion, solitude, and silence in the life of Thomas Merton; handling multiple commitments as interpreted through the life of St. Elizabeth Seton; and the Spirit working in our lives through the example of St. Jane de Chantal. David O. Jenkins provides a reflection on friendship as experienced through life in L'Arche communities.

Biblical scholar Andrew Davis maps out the main arc of the Old Testament narrative through an exploration of Creation, Covenant, Prophecy, and Kingship. Each week a Boston College faculty member enriches our discussion with a video response to Davis s chapter.
