Annual Aquinas Lecture Series to explore divine hiddenness April 9

Mount Mercy University’s annual Aquinas Lecture Series will be held Monday, April 9, at 7 p.m. in the on-campus Chapel of Mercy.

If a loving, all-powerful God exists, why isn’t there more decisive evidence? University of Notre Dame Professor of Philosophy and the Rev. John A. O’Brien Collegiate Chair Meghan E. Sullivan, Ph.D., will address this question during her lecture “The Church and the Hidden God.”

Discussing themes from Job, Augustine and contemporary philosophy, the talk will explore the roles of trust, authority and community in overcoming doubt.

“Doesn’t everyone occasionally wonder, if God exists, why doesn’t He just show His face and come down and fix everything that’s wrong with the world?” said Mount Mercy Professor of Philosophy Mary Ducey, Ph.D. “Meghan Sullivan is a young and engaging professor from Notre Dame who will address this question of ‘divine hiddenness’ from the point of view of rational religious belief. We think this is a great topic, especially for college students or anyone else who may be experiencing doubt.”

Co-sponsored by the local Notre Dame Club and a part of the Hesburgh Lecture Series, this event is free and open to the public, but seating may be limited.
