Advent & New Beginnings: Gregorian Chant & Living the Liturgical Rhythms of the Year
As the early Church moved from the ground of its Semitic origins to the wider world of Greek culture, it had to negotiate the tensions between the two worlds, the Hebraic and the Hellenic. “What has Athens to do with Jerusalem?” Tertullian’s famous question captured this tension. In the realm of music and liturgy we could ask an analogous question: “What has Orpheus to do with David?” With Orpheus and David representing the quintessence of the Greek and Jewish musical traditions. In this lecture, Dr. Aquila discusses the relation of music and liturgy in the history of the Catholic Church with special attention to four periods of tension between them each in part informed by elements of the Orpheus-Davidic understanding of music. The presentation will include musical examples of plainchant and polyphony. Presented by the Serra Club of Houston, the Notre Dame Club of Houston, and the University of St. Thomas.

How Converts Transformed and Re-Shaped the American Catholic Church
In the nineteenth and early twentieth century, the majority of American Catholics were recent immigrants from Ireland, Italy, Germany, Poland, and the Slavic lands. They were preoccupied with finding a place for themselves in the midst of a Protestant population, much of which was afraid of Catholicism and prejudiced against it. A minority of American Catholics, by contrast, were converts from Protestantism who joined the Church after crises of faith, and who then wanted to persuade their old friends and family members to make the same decision. They wrote and spoke persuasively, and in an idiom that Protestants could understand, becoming highly influential figures. Among the nineteenth century converts were Isaac Hecker, founder of the Paulist Fathers, and Orestes Brownson, editor of Brownson's Quarterly Review. Among the twentieth-century converts were Dorothy Day, founder of the Catholic Worker Movement, the historian and diplomat Carlton Hayes, the Trappist monk Thomas Merton, and the novelist Walker Percy. In addition, many famous British converts visited America and played a leading role in the American Catholic press, including G. K. Chesterton, Ronald Knox, Evelyn Waugh, and Graham Greene. Collectively these converts transformed the image of Catholicism in the eyes of other Americans and gave it a new position of intellectual dignity in American life. Dr. Patrick Allitt, Cahoon Family Professor of American History, is an American who specializes in religious, intellectual and environmental history. He graduated from Oxford, England, in 1977, and earned his doctorate in American History in 1986 from the University of California, Berkeley, He was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Divinity School, (1985-1988) and has been at Emory since 1988.

Mercy and Truth in Deus Caritas Est
In the debate on mercy, St. Thomas Aquinas is often quoted, when he says: "So in every work of God, viewed at its primary source, there appears mercy." But, this quote cannot be taken out of the context of Thomas' distinction that justice and truth must proceed mercy, so that it is truth that is the connection between justice and mercy, the truth of love. 'Without truth, charity denegrates into sentimentality. Love becomes an empty shell, to be filled in an arbitrary way. In a culture without truth, this is the fatal risk facing love' (Deus caritas est, 3). In his first encyclical, Pope Benedict XVI explored the identity of God as love and proposed a new theological epistemology. The fundamental truth of the document Deus caritas est is the truth of love as light. From the very outset, Benedict sets the identity of God as love in the context of those who believe in Him, affirming the interrelation between love and faith: God is love and whoever abides in love abides in God and God in him. We have come to know and to believe in the love God has for us (1 Jn 4:16). By examining the relationship between love and faith, and love and justice, and love and mercy, expressed in the encylical Deus caritas est, Cardinal Müller will seek to explore the deep connection between the truth of love and the Christian witness lived in charity.

Two Doors: How Religion and Psychotherapy Address Suffering
The unavoidable human experience of suffering often leads us to two doors: that of a faith community and the psychotherapist’s office. The assumptions and values of these two institutions may overlap and parallel each other, but they also may appear in conflict. How can we welcome the resources of our clients’ religious traditions into our approaches to suffering? When may religious practices and beliefs and psychotherapeutic values and goals be challenged? In what ways may both faith and mental health resources come together to support suffering persons?
