Dominicans are traditionally called “defensores fidei”. As Aquinas did, they fight for faith.  This fight is first and foremost the personal fight that each person conducts in the depths of his heart against the temptations of unbelief. But it also consists, at the ecclesial level, in fostering the encounter between the Word of God and all those who await him in secret. To this end, those who have the mission of defending the Church’s faith must ensure the authentic transmission of Catholic teaching. But they also must make the Word of God comprehensible in a specific cultural context, by denouncing the intellectual structures that hinder the reception of the Word and by building on those that help it. This fight for faith is inseparable from a ‘lifestyle’ : it rejects all forms of violence because it believes in the power of the Truth.

The International Dominican Foundation & the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas cordially invite you to join us for the annual Val McInnes Lecture with the chair holder, Fr. Serge-Thomas Bonino OP, President of the Pontifical Academy of St. Thomas Aquinas. He will speak on "Dominicans as Defensores Fidei." Everyone is asked to kindly RSVP will be in the Aula 11 where Fr. Karol Wojtyla defended his dissertation.

The Lecture normally would be part of our Angelicum Donor "Homecoming" weekend events but this year due to covid, it is just the on-line address. The rector will offer an intro and the director of development and mission advancement will offer a word at the conclusion. DONATE to the ANGELICUM: https://angelicum.it/give/
