"Paradise Lost" - Abbot Phllip Anderson (Part 1)
Abbot Philip Anderson of Our Lady of Annunciation of Clear Creek delivers two spiritual conferences about "Paradise Lost: the Rugged Road of the Beatitudes." Our Lady of the Annunciation of Clear Creek is a monastic foundation of the French Abbey Notre Dame de Fontgombault, itself a foundation of Saint Pierre de Solesmes. Over the years Solesmes started new monasteries, one of which was the Abbey of Fontgombault, restored to monastic life in 1948. Fontgombault in turn, after having sent monks to three monasteries in France, has now started one in Oklahoma in response to the gracious invitation of His Excellency Edward Slattery, Bishop of Tulsa. Monasteries which are members of the Solesmes Congregation, as are Fontgombault and Clear Creek, in order to better to cultivate the essential of their vocation, that is, the life of prayer, do not assume pastoral charge of parishes nor run schools. But in the Rule of Saint Benedict, hospitality has an important place, and Benedictine tradition has always considered this to be a part of the monastery's role in the Church. So, besides their deep communion with the life of the Church and their prayer for all, the monks of Clear Creek receive guests for retreats and help the faithful participate in their life of prayer and recollection, especially through the Divine Office. It is indeed a part of the Solesmes tradition to cultivate a solemn, public liturgical Office. The monks of Clear Creek celebrate God's glory in Latin, so appropriate to give an idea of God's majesty, a sense of the sacred. Thus the monks exploit the riches developed over centuries in the Church's liturgy and cultivate Gregorian Chant. Two other main features of the Solesmes Congregation and which the monks of Clear Creek will strive to fully live must be noted: deep fidelity to the Holy See and devotion to the Virgin Mary.

Koch Lecture Series: In Search of Religious Liberty
Dr. John Hittinger will discuss the common concern of Alexis de Tocqueville and Pope John Paul II to defend human dignity and liberty in the face of the pressures from within modern democracies to degrade human dignity and to limit freedom. Religious liberty and association play a crucial role in the very successes of modern politics. Without vigorous religious belief and freedom of conscience, society will more easily become inundated by a destructive “tyranny of the majority” and the degradation of man by individualism and materialism. Dr. Hittinger will argue for the truth of John Paul II’s statement that “The recognition of these rights represents the primary foundation of every authentically free political order.” Dr. Hittinger is a professor of philosophy at UST and has published four books. Hittinger founded the Pope John Paul II Forum for the Church in the Modern World in 2009. He has published articles and presented papers on a variety of topics including John Locke, Jacques Maritain, military ethics, liberal education, political philosophy and the thought of John Paul II Speaker: Dr. John Hittinger Date: January 26, 2016 Location: Crooker Center Length: 78 mins

We Forget That They are Orphans: Embryos, IVF & Embryonic Stem Cell Research
The debate over embryonic stem cell research is connected to one much less volatile debate, the morality of in vitro fertilization (IVF) and to another likely to explode in the future, cloning. IVF and cloning are currently the two sources of research embryos. Is there some way to make sense of these three interconnected issues? Catholic Church has consistently looked at the treatment of embryos in relation to the "source of embryos" in marriage. Yet the Church has presented arguments against embryo-destructive research, IVF, and cloning that are consistent with, but do not all depend upon Christian faith. This lecture explores some of those arguments in light of current developments in the embryonic stem cell debate. Dr. Grattan Brown is a professor of theology at Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina. He received his STD and STL, both Summa Cum Laude, from the Accademia Alfonsiana in Rome, Italy. He also serves as a consultant for the National Catholic Bioethics Center. Dr. Brown previously taught moral theology at the Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia. Dr. Brown previously received bachelors' degrees from the University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome, Italy, and Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, in Sacred Theology and English, respectively. Dr. Brown also received an MA from the University of Memphis, Tennessee, in English. He is an expert in Catholic social doctrine, moral theology, bioethics, and the theology of marriage.
