Faith Talks

Human Rights and the Teaching of the Catholic Church, from Saint Francis to Pope Francis

Sunday, November 1, 2-4 p.m.
Franciscan Center

Featured speaker: Paolo G. Carozza, A.B., J.D.
The idea of human rights originated in the life of the Catholic Church, and Catholic social teaching today provides one of the clearest defenses of it. But there are also deep tensions between Catholic tradition and human rights, historically and in the present day. This lecture explores that ambiguous relationship.

Free and open to the public. For more information, contact Sr. Barbara Vano, O.S.F. by email.
