Fruit of the Earth and Work of Human Hands: Eucharist as (and) Integral Ecology


Location: Oak Room, South Dining Hall

In the lecture, Dr. Katongole will offer the fifth in a six-part series called "The Only Solution is Love: The Eucharist and Catholic Social Teaching." This fifth lecture will highlight the connections between Eucharist and ecology with a view of making two interconnected claims, namely (1) that an adequate understanding of the Eucharist intensifies and shapes the Christian responsibility for the care of Our Common Home, and (2) that efforts for the care of our Common home are Eucharistic in more than a symbolic sense. They are truly a sacrament (sign and reality) of God’s love for the earth. Drawing from the work of Bethany Land Institute in Uganda, he will display the dynamic relationship between these two claims. For more information, please click here
