  • Description
    Rev. Daniel G. Groody, C.S.C., will offer the fourth in a six-part lecture series called "The Only Solution is Love: The Eucharist and Catholic Social Teaching." This fourth lecture, titled "A Theology of Migration: The Bodies of Refugees and the Body Of Christ," reframes migration through a Eucharistic narrative, rather than the usual political, social, and cultural narratives, aligning the outer journey of migrants, the inner journey of faith, and the divine journey of Christ into our world and back to God. It explores the Body of Christ as encountered inside a Church building in the sacrament of the Eucharist, and also as encountered outside of it in the least and last among us (Mt 25:31-46). In the context of the global migration and refugees crisis, it shows the ways the divine and human intermingle on our earthly pilgrimage, transforming us into the image and likeness of God, so that we become bread for the world through the works of mercy.
