Cardinal Newman, as a result of his recent beatification, has received great attention lately. It is well deserved. He was a profound thinker and much of what he had to say has a lot to offer us now. Therefore, on Monday, October 18 at 8pm in St. Patrick’s Parish Centre, Kilkenny, Rev. Dr. Thomas Norris will explore what it is that Cardinal Newman’s understanding of conscience can offer to our Church and Society today.
All men and women have a conscience, but not all act according to it: how easy it is, after all, in our world today to be talked out of our clearest duties. If we argue that the Pope and Conscience both come from God, and we do, then in the final analysis there cannot be a conflict between them. If Church and Society need to be built on the pillars of truth and justice, conscientious living is surely indispensable. Blessed John Henry Newman is renowned for his forward thinking on conscience in Church and Society and on Monday, October 18 we will have the opportunity to explore this together.
