Conference on Philosophy in Theological Education honoring Ralph McInerny

The good people at Ave Maria University will be sponsoring a conference in February of 2011 (Feb. 10-12, 2011) honoring the late Ralph M. McInerny. The conference’s rationale and line-up is as follows:

A cornerstone of Catholic intellectual life is the teaching that the light of Catholic truth does not dim, let alone extinguish, the God-given light of reason. Faith in Jesus Christ heals, strengthens and elevates the light of reason. The excellent scholars at this Conference on Philosophy in Theological Education will explore how the love of wisdom and the intellectual life should inform the eduction of theologians. This is a theme dear to the heart and mind of the great philosopher and Catholic intellectual, Ralph McInerny. His labors for the renewal of Catholic intellectual culture will be fittingly honored and celebrated at the Conference.
