M. Shawn Copeland, professor of systematic theology at Boston College, explores compassion from the perspective of Christian theology. Confronted with disaster, the global community rushes its experts to plan and carry out complex rescue missions; yet, at the same time, we accept gross inequality, degrading poverty, and chronic disease among members of that same global community.

With social critics, philosophers, and theologians, we may ask, ‘Where is our compassion?” From the perspective of Christian theology, this lecture explores meanings of compassion, why and how compassion matters, and how practices of solidarity may energize us to respond in compassion to the suffering of others.

This lecture is sponsored by the Myser Initiative on Catholic Identity.
