Keynote Panel on Living Joy and Hope in the Church
R. Scott Appleby, Ph.D., Alexia Kelley, MTS, and Bishop Ricardo Ramírez, C.S.B. evaluate how we can live with joy and hope in the Church and in the world through three different lenses: engaging people and institutions with different beliefs, connecting philanthropy with the signs of the times, and evaluating the example of Oscar Romero and the formation of the modern Catholic world.
The Center for Social Concerns 2015 Catholic Social Tradition Conference, “Joy and Hope: Fiftieth Anniversary of Gaudium et Spes,” sought to explore the thematic social justice issues that have been addressed by modern Catholic social thought, especially those within the pastoral constitution such as human dignity, political structures, economic development, and internationalization.
