Thomistic Institute: The Virgin Mother of God

"The Virgin Mother of God: Mary in the Bible and Church Teaching"
Lecture by Prof. Joshua Benson (Catholic University of America)

Even cradle Catholics sometimes seem confused about who Mary is and what Catholics believe. A prime example is the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception. Sometimes Catholics think this refers to Mary's conception of Christ or some see it as an expression of Catholic guilt about the body. We can ground all our thinking about Mary, however, in a simple place: She is the Virgin Mother of God. From this vantage point, Catholic teaching about Mary can be unified and understood as deeply rooted in God's Word and the tradition of reflection upon it.

Lecture will take place in the Gymnasium at St. Charles. Light refreshments provided. Pre-registration is requested for this event: https://goo.gl/forms/R3krZdii0BpD1ud73
