All are welcome to join the Garaventa Center in honoring distinguished theologian Fr. Tom Hosinski, C.S.C., as he offers his final lecture before retiring at the end of the spring 2016 semester. His lecture, “The Sacredness of the Ordinary,” is set for Wednesday, April 20, at 7:15 p.m., in Franz Hall Room 120.
The sacred and the ordinary are frequently distinguished and seemingly separated from each other. But reflection on divine omnipresence and on traditional ways of understanding the doctrine of creation and creaturely existence suggests a different view. In this talk, Fr. Hosinski will suggest that the sacred and the ordinary actually coincide and incorporate each other.
Fr. Hosinski has been teaching at the University since 1978. His publications include a book on the philosophy and philosophical theology of Alfred North Whitehead (Stubborn Fact and Creative Advance, 1993), a book on the contemporary understanding of God (tentatively entitled God-Talk in the 21st Century, 2017), and numerous scholarly articles.
