Anger, Lamentation, and Common Ground

The Cardinal Joseph Bernardin Award will be presented to Ms. Kerry Robinson, Global Ambassador of Leadership Roundtable, followed by the Msgr. Philip J. Murnion Lecture Anger, Lamentation, and Common Ground given by Dr. Cathleen Kaveny of Boston College.


How can we search for common ground when everyone is so angry? In this lecture, Dr. Cathleen Kaveny will consider the pervasiveness of anger in the church and the broader society. She will propose that finding common ground in today’s context requires something other than dialogue. Taking inspiration from Scripture, she will suggest that we might find common ground in our sorrow, and that we could build community through liturgies and litanies of lamentation.
