Moon landing and more: The anniversaries of 2019

2019 ANNIVERSARIES

PD

Tom Hoopes - published on 12/30/18

This coming year will include a handful of reasons to look at the lessons of history.

Many events that shaped the way we live and think will mark anniversaries in 2019. For instance,

Einstein’s theory of relativity, which changed the way we think of truth, was confirmed 100 years ago by a British astronomer observing a November 6 solar eclipse, and Sigmund Freud, who changed the way we think of psychology, died 80 years ago this September 23.

And in 2019, the Beatles’ album Abbey Road will turn 50 and the movie Lion King will turn 25.

Here are some other anniversaries, happy and sad, of note to Catholics this year.
