Papers on mercy and the Catholic intellectual tradition now available
Last March, the Office of Mission Integration sponsored a symposium on “Mercy and the Catholic Intellectual Tradition.” At that event, three faculty presented papers reflecting on how mercy and the Catholic intellectual tradition are interrelated.
As a preview of the upcoming Holy Year of Mercy, which begins Dec. 8, Sister Leona Misto, vice president for mission integration, has invited all members of the Salve Regina community to read these papers. All are now available on the Office of Mission Integration webpage.
The available papers are:
- “Mercy and Business: A Partnership for Catholic University Business Students” by Dr. Arlene Nicholas, associate professor and graduate program director in the Department of Business Studies and Economics.
- “Building Bridges of Mercy: An Exploration of the Role Which Mercy in the Catholic Intellectual Tradition Can Have in Building Interreligious Dialogue with Islam” by Dr. Sean O’Callaghan, assistant professor in the Department of Religious and Theological Studies, and Sinan Zeino ’16.
- “The Mercy Vector: Contagious Transformation in Higher Education” by Dr. Joel Z. Schmidt, former assistant professor in the Department of Religious and Theological Studies.
