Join us for Crossroads of Theology, a series of talks and socials for young people exploring the intersection of theology with current affairs and culture. This series is hosted by the students of Regis College, the Jesuit School of Theology in Canada. While Crossroads talks are primarily aimed at those aged 18-35 years old, students of all ages are welcome to attend.
Susan K. Wood, SCL, Academic Dean of Regis College, will present “The Eucharist: Bond of Love (viniculum caritatis)”
The Constitution on the Liturgy from Vatican II called the Eucharist a “viniculum caritatis,” “a bond of love” (SC 47). This bond of love is the bond not only between an individual and the risen Lord, but also the bond of love among all those who receive the Eucharist, and is thus inseparable from its eccleisal and social meanings. This talk explores the relationship between the Eucharist and the bond of charity within the Christian community: it is not a “warm, fuzzy feeling”, but has a deep ontological density.
Talk begins at 5:15, followed by a reception with free food and great company! This is an excellent opportunity to meet fellow-students who are studying around the GTA. Don’t want to go alone? Bring a friend! The more the merrier!
