NATURE AND GRACE – A Study Day

Saturday, June 29th, 2024 – 10:00am to 2:00pm
St. Michael Church, 80 University Avenue West, Waterloo, Ontario
The debate about nature and grace considers how God’s action relates to humanity and how we can respond to God in the world. The insights of Catholic theologian Henri de Lubac influenced thinkers such as Saint John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI. In his book “A Brief Catechesis on Nature and Grace” he rejects on the one hand the extreme of opposing nature and grace, as if God’s grace is entirely alien to our nature, and on the other hand, the extreme of confusing them. Come and join the conversation. No need to read the book. Highlights of each chapter will be provided. Bring your own lunch.
