Thursday, June 15th, 7pm in Aquinas Hall: How Could Hell Possibly Exist?

Dare we hope that all men be saved?  This is a serious question asked by a serious theologian.  How could hell possibly exist anyway?  Which one of you, wicked as you are, would wish eternal misery upon your worst enemy?  Even if you do (which is a serious sin, by the way…) how could He Who Is Love Himself positively will much less permit anyone to go there – even if the sinner himself or herself adamantly willed it?  What exactly does Sacred Scripture say about hell?  What exactly does the catechism say? What do we know for sure?  And what should we make of various visions of hell given to various saints and mystics (e.g., the children of Fatima, St. Theresa of Avila, St. Faustina, etc.) throughout the centuries?

These questions and more will (hopefully) be answered in Aquinas Hall on June 15th.  Refreshments at Claddagh’s will follow.

Monday, June 19th: Main Church and Aquinas Hall: Mass and a Meal

Mass and a Meal is a new Frassati event which we’re planning to hold on Mondays. Fr.

The title of the next talk will be “The History, Practice and Spirituality of the Liturgy of the Hours.”  Michael Murphy, a member of the Lay Fraternity of St. Dominic, will be giving the talk.  This would be a great time to discover one way in which so many  members of the laity have benefited so greatly from participating in the Liturgy of the Hours, the prayer of the Church finding its first origins in the Acts of the Apostles.  The Q&A session afterwards would also be a great time to ask Michael questions about the Lay Fraternity of St. Dominic.  It made a blessed (soon to be a saint) out of Pier Giorgio Frassati after all…  Maybe God is calling you too!
