Pope Francis on Transforming A Broken World
Nov 21 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Pope Francis on Transforming A Broken World

In his recently published encyclical entitled “On Fraternity and Social Friendship,” Pope Francis first sketches a bleak but accurate picture of the broken world of which we are a part and then provides a program for transforming it. He offers the story of the Good Samaritan as an example of how we are all called to open our hearts to the whole world. Join us as we explore and reflect upon this new encyclical.

Please click here to read the Pope Francis’ Encyclical prior to the event.  Thank you.

Rosa Mystica
Dec 8 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

The Illinois Patrons of the Arts in the Vatican Museums are thrilled to invite you to Rosa Mystica: A Journey of Renewal and Restoration.  This is a five-lecture program series that will take place over a 15-month period. Each lecture will showcase magnificent Marian art accompanied by artistic and spiritual commentary and an opportunity for Q & A.

Our first lecture, Mary: Art as a Carrier of Faith will continue the Illinois Patrons’ distinctive approach to its mission of restoring art in the Vatican Museums. We are more than art historians and admirers. We bring together art and faith.

Cardinal Blase Cupich will introduce the Rosa Mystica series and Father Louis Cameli and Dr. Rebecca Long will be presenters for this first lecture. Father Richard Fragomeni will present at the March 9, 2021 lecture.  Please see link below for the dates and topics of the entire program.

This five-lecture program begins in virtual format.  Attendance will be limited so please register as soon as possible.

“Rosa Mystica” continues, Thursday, December 8 at 6:30 p.m. Call 312.534.5351, Email illinoispatrons@gmail.com.

Advent Day of Reflection, via Zoom
Dec 12 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

So, What’s Birthing?

Meister Eckhart boldly suggests that we are all meant to be mothers of God – For God is forever needing to be born. And contemporary theologian Jack Shea describes Advent as Lamaze classes for believers.

To the extent that these two wise characters are onto something – and I am convinced that they are – then it would behoove us and serve the world if we were to take seriously the adventure and privilege and holy obligation of Advent by contemplating and cooperating with a God who is eager and desperate to enter into our lives – beautiful and chaotic – this season.

Please join us as we celebrate this mystery and ask ourselves how we are invited and called to Birth a bit of the Divine into a world in need of the same.

Presenter: Dr. Terry Nelson-Johnson

Dr. Terry Nelson-Johnson challenges us to enter more deeply into the mystery of grace, the mystery of God through storytelling, poetry, and humor. Working with parents, teachers, pastoral staff and faith communities Dr. Nelson-Johnson designs and conducts formation programs that encourage, affirm, and inspire. The author and leader of the acclaimed Beloved retreat, he is the Founder as well as Creative & Animating Partner of Soul Play LLC, which can be found at soulplayonline.com. Dr. Nelson-Johnson is also Resident Theologian and Animator of Faith at Old St. Patrick’s Church. He holds a Master’s degree from the Institute of Pastoral Studies, Loyola University and a Doctor of Ministry degree from the University of St. Mary of the Lake.
