Hesburgh Lecture at Marian Court College
Delivered by the University of Notre Dame’s Michael Driscoll
Wednesday April 22, 2015 | 7:00pm
Swampscott, MA – The Rev. Michael Driscoll, Ph.D., founding director of the University of Notre Dame’s Master of Sacred Music program, will be at Marian Court College, 7.00 p.m., Wednesday, April 22, 2015 to deliver the 2015 Hesburgh Lecture.
The topic of the 7.00 p.m. lecture is “The Eucharist As the Embodiment of Love.” Following the 2005 Synod of Bishops dealing with the Eucharist, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI penned an apostolic exhortation titled The Sacrament of Charity (2007). Drawing upon this document, this lecture discusses the Eucharist as a mystery to be celebrated, a mystery to be believed, and a mystery to be lived. This lecture attempts to find the connection between cult, creed, and code, to the extent that how we pray shapes what we believe and how we act as Christians living in the world.
The lecture is free and open to the public. The doors open at 6.00 p.m. and the lecture begins at 7.00 p.m.
Marian Court College is collaborating with the Notre Dame Club of Boston in sponsoring the event. The Hesburgh Lecture is named in honor of Father Theodore Hesburgh, president emeritus of the University of Notre Dame. It seeks to encourage an intellectual dialogue of alumni, community members and distinguished faculty of Notre Dame.
