Longing for the Prince of Peace, While Facing the Horrors of War
Time: Thursday, December 04 at 7:00 pm
Location: Wallace Hall

This lecture will reflect on how 20th century artists protested war in the bloodiest of all centuries and prepared us imaginatively to hear the repeated calls for peace by all the recent popes: John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and now Francis. The images will try to help us realize more concretely what peace requires.

About the Presenter
Rev. Leo J. O’Donovan, S.J., is President Emeritus of Georgetown University and a past president of the Catholic Theological Society of America. He has written art criticism for publications such as America, Commonweal, The Washingtonian, Stimmen der Zeit (Munich), the Los Angeles Times, and the National Catholic Reporter.
