Margaret R. Pfeil: Eucharistic Abundance and Social Regeneration
Wednesday, Feb. 14; 4:30–5:45 p.m.
South Dining Hall, Oak Room
Margaret R. Pfeil, Ph.D. will offer the second in the McGrath Institute for Church Life’s six-part lecture series called “The Only Solution is Love: The Eucharist and Catholic Social Teaching.” This second lecture, titled “Eucharistic Abundance and Social Regeneration” will explore the relationship between Eucharistic liturgy and Catholic social thought in conversation with the insights of St. Basil of Caesarea, St. Irenaeus, Dorothy Day, Virgil Michel, and St. Oscar Romero. The beginning of Lent offers a fresh opportunity to enter into the essential relationship between liturgy and social regeneration as Eucharistic abundance nourishes the works of mercy.
Margaret Pfeil holds a joint appointment in the Theology Department and in the Center for Social Concerns at the University of Notre Dame.
