La Teología de mi Abuela: Learning from Women in our Latino Community

Webinar Description:  Time for Catholic women to claim our place in our Church! We are each called to recover the “memoria histórica” – the historical memory- of the valiant women that have come before us. We need to tell our personal and community stories that will encourage and inspire the next generation of women in our Church. This reflection will draw from the experience of the Latina woman’s faith experience of radical hospitality, unfolding mercy, and accompaniment. Come have a conversation about the “comal y metate” * of inclusion and encouragement all women need in our Church!
*[comal: place where you make tortillas, Metate: where you grind corn or make salsa]

After Dostoevsky: What is Catholic and Orthodox literature in the Age of the Nones?

Webinar Description:   This year commemorates the 200th anniversary of the birth of Fyodor Dostoevsky. Dostoevsky is not only one of the greatest novelists of all time, he is also a specifically Orthodox Christian writer whose work is infused with the culture, theology, and spirituality of the Orthodox Church. Nor is Dostoevsky the only great Christian novelist: between the early 19th and mid-20th century, both Orthodoxy and Catholicism nurtured and inspired some of the greatest writers--and works of literature--the world has ever known. Today, that is hardly the case. But why? Is religious fiction dying out, as some have lamented, or simply becoming “pious trash,” as Flannery O’Connor feared? Or must we reimagine the boundaries of Orthodox and Catholic belonging in order to discover new streams of religious and artistic creativity?
