    The Unbearable Lightness of Being: Taking the Roots of Our Tradition and Making for the Mountain

    In 2015, Pope Francis remarked that ¿today we are not living an epoch of change so much as an epochal change¿¿or put another way, ¿We are not living an era of change but a change of era.¿The Hank Center¿s 2021 Teilhard de Chardin, S.J. Fellow, Dr. Stephen Schloesser, S.J., will explore the ways that we can re-source the Catholic intellectual heritage so that we might creatively engender its innovative radiance.
    The Lecture will draw on the insights of figures including Paul Claudel, Annie Dillard, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Milan Kundera, and Denise Levertov, as well as Caroline Walker Bynum and Alfred North Whitehead. The cultivation of amazement and wonder ¿which admittedly also entail some fear¿will be encouraged as a response to the surprising, puzzling, astonishing, and mysterious.
