Educating to Love

Our next monthly meeting will be held on Friday, January 10th from 3:00pm to 4:30pm. We will be discussing “Educating to Love” by Jeanne H. Schindler from the Summer 2018 (Volume 45.2) issue of Communio entitled “Priesthood, Consecration, Marriage: Is Love Possible? A Symposium Discerning the Signs of the Times”. 

Here is an excerpt from the Introduction to the issue:
Jeanne H. Schindler, in “Educating to Love,” contemplates the intimate formation we receive in family life, which initiates us into the life of the Church and educates us about who we are and what our place is in the cosmos. The current problems facing the Church and culture are rooted in an intellectual condition that denies this created order. She argues that the diagnosis of the current crisis as simply a moral failure is far too narrow, for the crisis “is significantly an intellectual problem, a problem, that is, of ideas.” Countering it thus demands a recovery of genuine vision, an understanding of the created order of things in the broadest and deepest sense, and so a “vigorous renewal of education within our homes, schools, parishes, universities, and seminaries.”

Location: We will meet in the Kateri Room located at St. Michael’s Church, 240 Hemlock Street, Waterloo, Ontario. Use the east side parking lot and enter by the rear doors. Walk up the stairs. And the Kateri Room is on your right before enter the church proper.
