This would be a great time to revisit the question of faith and reason with Dominican priest and philosopher, Fr. James Brent, O.P.
For the third week in a row, our Holy Father delivered catechesis on St. Thomas’s perennial wisdom and his understanding of the complementarity of faith and reason.
Father James Dominic Brent, O.P. was ordained to the priesthood this past May twenty-eighth. He will begin full-time teaching at the Catholic University of America’s School of Philosophy this Fall, continuing the great tradition of CUA philosophy professors such as Frs. William Augustine Wallace, O.P. (emeritus), Brian J. Shanley, O.P. (now President of Providence College), and Kurt Pritzl, O.P. (present Dean of the School of Philosophy).
Fr. Brent wrote his philosophy doctorate on matters of faith and reason under Eleanor Stump (a Third Order Dominican, by the way) at St. Louis University. He has taught at secular and Catholic universities, and seminaries as well.
Fr. Brent is a popular lecturer in the Washington, DC and Arlington, VA areas. Regardless of your level of philosophical knowledge, you will profit from hearing him speak. He’ll be in town only for a few weeks. You don’t want to miss him.
So, come to the Church Hall Tonight… and bring your skeptic and fideist friends!
