At the John Paul II Institute, on May 29th and 30th, a study seminar in preparation for the Synod on the Family

“Create a place for dialogue on major theological issues that the assumption of the principle of mercy puts into the Church's pastoral action within the perspective of the synod on the family convoked by Pope Francis.” This is the objective of the seminar on the theme “Mercy, Pastoral Truth,” which will be held on May 29th and 30th at the John Paul II Institute in Rome.

The speakers of the second session, among others, will be the Bishop of Noto, Msgr. Anthony Stagliano; Philippe Bordeyne, of the Catholic Institute of Paris; José Noriega, of the Pontifical John Paul II Institute; and Karin Heller, of Whitworth University. “Attention to the Conscience and Justice” is the theme of the second day of the seminar, during which the following speakers will intervene: Msgr. Claudio Giuliodori, Ecclesiastical Assistant of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart; Eberhard Schockenhoff, of the Theological Faculty of Freiburg; Livio Melina, of the John Paul II Institute; and Gabriella Gambino, of Tor Vergata University.
