Fr. López’s paper will seek to address the following questions: What conception of power allows for an adequate and free relation between God and man? How are we to conceive human power so that our relation with God is neither coercive nor merely optional?

At this annual conference, scholars, field professionals and students from around the world meet for a time to present papers based on their research and professional experiences. It is a time of fellowship, reflection, and dialogue concerning topics integral to the New Evangelization.

Alumni Dr. Matthew Kuhner, Dr. Erik van Versendaal, and current Ph.D. student Henry Wickus are also presenting at the symposium’s Colloquium Sessions.

  • Dr. Matthew Kuhner, “Catechesis between Conception and First Holy Communion: An Antidote to Liquid Atheism and Therapeutic Deism”
  • Dr. Erik van Versendaal, “Kingdom Come: Fleshless Mediation and the Idol of Self-Generating Community after Kant and Hegel”
  • Mr. Henry Wickus, “Unity and Charity: Understanding Joseph Ratzinger’s Approach to the Liturgy”
