2022 Spring Dehon Lecture Respondent: Fr. James Kurzynski

  • This event has passed.

Covid, Faith, and the Fallibility of Science

The respondent portion will begin at 1:00pm, and have its own livestream link.

In the fight against the COVID pandemic, the scientific evidence in favor of vaccination is overwhelming, with firm support from the Holy See. Nevertheless, many faithful Christians remain conflicted. This dichotomy has implications beyond vaccine skepticism. The arguments both for and against vaccination too often assume a false view of what science is and what it can promise. The reality of human fallibility, a consequence of original sin, demonstrates our need to accept uncertainty and imperfection in our science and in our religious lives.

 

 Respondent: Fr. James Kurzynski – 1:00 PM (Central)

*Please note that the lecture and respondent portions will not be ‘live’ until the day and start time of the event (Wednesday, February 9, 2022 at 10:30am and 1:00pm)
