Just one verse each day.
The Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) in Rome has welcomed over 350 scholars from around the world for the XI International Thomistic Congress.
The Congress, under the Honorary Presidency of His Eminence, Rev. Luis Cardinal Ladaria Ferrer, Prefect of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith, is sponsored by the Pontifical Academy of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Angelicum Thomistic Institute, the McDonald Agape Foundation, the University of Notre Dame, and the Jacques Maritain Center.
French Dominican and Angelicum professor Fr. Serge-Thomas Bonino said, “This is, in fact, the largest and most important conference of scholars who specialize in the thought of the Common Doctor of the Church, St. Thomas Aquinas. It will be in Rome, that is, at the very heart of the Church, a formidable witness to the vitality of Thomism and its contribution to the intellectual mission of the Church.”
According to the congress website, “The general scientific objective of the XI International Thomistic Congress is to consider new perspectives in the study of St. Thomas (interests, methods and results) in order to highlight the resources of the Thomist tradition in contemporary theological and philosophical debates.”
Many of the sessions are available to watch on YouTube.
