When Peter and Paul Disagree: Living in Faithfulness and Charity Amid
Vianney Hall Auditorium, St. Charles Borromeo Seminary, Wynnewood, PA
Start Date and Time:
Monday, April 8, 2019, 7:00 P.M.
End Date and Time
The past few years have witnessed public controversies waged at a very
high level regarding to Church’s doctrine and discipline, with
Bishops, scholars and others criticizing one another and calling one
another to accountability, while the Successor of Peter himself has
been the object of criticism for his magisterial pronouncements and
pastoral administration, even from Catholics generally noted for
long-standing fidelity to the Magisterium. While surveying the present
situation this lecture will seek to identify the guideposts and
caveats for understanding and responding to these challenges that may
be found to emerge from Sacred Scripture, Tradition, and ecclesial
experience. What principles should guide such public dispute? What are
the parameters for criticism without rupture of communion, failure of
charity or collapse of civil discourse?
Speaker: Rev. Msgr. Michael Magee, Chair of Systematic Theology, St.
Charles Borromeo Seminary

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
