Lecture Honors the Legacy of Pope John Paul II

This year’s John Paul II Legacy Lecture, featuring Sister John Sheila Galligan, IHM, will take place at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 31, 2011, in the library first floor lounge. The lecture will focus on John Paul II’s preaching, teaching, writing and personal witness to mercy.

Outreach librarian and theology professor Darren G. Poley, M.A., M.S., comments, “A love of mercy was not only meaningful to the late pope, but is truly foundational to an understanding of what it means to say ‘God is Love,’ the title of his successor’s first encyclical. God’s greatest attribute, mercy, is something Pope John Paul II wanted the world to courageously embrace.”

Sister John Sheila Galligan, IHM, B.A., M.A., S.T.L., S.T.D., is a professor of theology at Immaculata University where she teaches a course entitled, “John Paul II: A Remarkable Life.”

The event is free and open to the public.
