Our Common Identity
What it Means to be Human in an Age of Confusion
Today we live under what Pope Benedict XVI called a “dictatorship of relativism.” During this first installment of a three part series reflecting on the human person, Fr. Stephen Fields will discuss how the human person is created in God’s image and likeness. He will also comment on the strengths and limits of humanity’s distinctive powers of reason and freedom. Fr. Fields will do this against the backdrop of authentic understandings of truth and goodness.
