by C.J. Renz, OP
Joseph Boenzi, SDB has just published a new book entitled, St Francis de Sales: Life and Spirit (New York: De Sales Resources and Ministries, 2013).
Hilary Martin, OP will return once more to Australia to meet again with the Aboriginal community at Wadeye. Fr. Hilary notes Australia is a multi-cultured place and finances alone cannot always bring people together. He will be attending some events in Darwin and Wadeye to foster better understanding and cooperation among peoples in those regions. This ongoing endeavor relates particularly well to a course he will teach next year entitled, "Myth, Ritual and Sacrament."
Chris Renz, OP will participate in the Dominican Forum at Holy Family Cathedral in Anchorage, AK this summer. His presentation will be given on August 5th and is entitled, “Sacrosanctum Concilium – 50 years later … and 150 years before.”
Bryan Kromholtz, OP and Anselm Ramelow, OP will attend an international conference entitled, “The Doctrine of God – One and Triune,” sponsored by the Thomistic Institute at the Dominican House of Studies (Washington, D.C.). Fr. Bryan will present a paper entitled, “Eschatology and the Doctrine of God,” and Fr. Anselm will present a paper entitled, “Aquinas on Supernatural Agency, Finite and Infinite.”
Fr. Anselm has also recently published a translation in German with a commentary of Quaestiones Disputatae de Veritate (Disputed Questions on Truth) by Thomas Aquinas. After the conference in Washington, D.C., he will spend time in Munich for ministry at the Dominican church, Theatinerkirche.
Augustine Thompson, OP continues to receive accolades and awards for his most recent publication (Francis of Assisi: A New Biography) which was awarded the "Premio Flaiano di Italianistica 2013" (scroll down on the web page to the section entitled, “PREMI INTERNAZIONALI FLAIANO SEZIONE ITALIANISTICA - VINCITORI”). Fr. Augustine will receive the award at a ceremony in Pescara (Abruzzo), Italy on July 14th, and afterwards travel to Croatia to attend the 2013 General Chapter of the Dominican Order.
