Embracing Creation: Events Celebrating the Legacy of Benedict XVI

On the heels of what would have been his 97th birthday, it has been a joy to honor Pope Benedict XVI in a couple of ways this week.

First, I enjoyed the opportunity to appear again on Kresta in the Afternoon to discuss the legacy of our late pontiff with my friend Dr. Marcus Peter. This time, our discussion focused on the themes of creation, covenant, and ecology. The interview begins at 22:05 and lasts through the remainder of the hour. 

The other event is through an April 25th evening colloquium at Benedictine College on the enduring significance of Pope Benedict XVI’s epochal contributions to Catholic thought and culture. Sponsored by the Center for Integral Ecology that I am blessed to co-direct, this event focuses specifically on the late pontiff’s theology of creation and how it can help us to better inhabit the created world and transform culture today. This free event features short lectures by myself and two other experts involved with the newly released Cambridge Companion to Joseph Ratzinger, followed by dinner and a panel discussion with Q&A. For those unable to make it, I will post video of this event here once it becomes available.
