Culture in the Thought of John Paul II & Benedict XVI
Tracey Rowland, Dean of the John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family Studies in Melbourne, Australia, has focused her previous scholarship on the interpretation of Vatican II and the theology of culture. The relationship between the gospel and cultures has been described as nothing less than the “oceanic problem of the day”. Pope John Paul II believed that western civilisation is at a cross-roads between a civilisation of love and a culture of death, and in his Principles of Catholic Theology, Joseph Ratzinger (now Benedict XVI) described the severest crisis in twentieth century theology, as “understanding the mediation of history in the realm of ontology”. Professor Rowland’s Miller Lecture addresses these themes in the thought of the two pontiffs. Speaker(s): Tracey Rowland Date: September 29, 2010 Location: Jones Hall Length: 66 mins

Five Prayers: A Testimonial on Faith and Science
Each year the J. Michael Miller Lecture Series Lecture will sponsor an expert who has overcome the dichotomy of faith and life and risen to greatness precisely by embodying the values of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition in professional practice. This year's speaker, Mauro Ferrari, Ph.D. presents Five Prayers: A Testimonial on Faith and Science: Prayer and research share many fundamental characters. Creativity and mysticism are born of the same cloth, and at times even merge with rigor and communication, as in the life and works of Bonaventura da Bagnoregio. Faith, Hope, and Love inspire our work in medicine. They are joined, perhaps surprisingly, by Sorrow in the Universal Prayer of Pope Clement XI – and constantly in our lives as providers of health care to current and future patients. Simon was from Cyrene, he was not even a local resident, but ended up on the Via Dolorosa, perhaps attracted by the crowd. There he was asked to help our Lord Christ Jesus to carry the Cross – and through Him the crosses of all that were made in His image. The request came from one of His tormentors, perhaps the most unlikely of sources, for an inspiration to serve the Lord by helping others. Yet he did help Him, and who are we not to do the same, regardless of the wheres, the whys, the hows, and the original plans for our metaphorical day? My testimonial of a journey in Faith and science is an humble expression of gratitude and awe to Bonaventura, Clement, and Simon, in honor of Archbishop J. Michael Miller, and expressed in five prayers from their words - and our nanomedicine laboratories. Speakers: Mauro Ferrari, Ph.D. Date: February 20, 2014 Location: Cullen Hall Length: 76 mins
