SILENT: Laudato Si: Learning a New Way of Life (Fr. Dennis Hamm, SJ, Ph.D.)

Since the publication of Pope Francis’s encyclical On Care for our Common Home (“Laudato Si’”), events and discoveries have confirmed its data and its wisdom.

Inspired by the Pope’s integration of science, Scripture, and history to hear the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor, this silent retreat will help you get a clear sense of what it means for you to take the next step as a citizen of Nebraska, to think globally and act locally, nurtured by the best resource of all, our faith in a creating and sustaining God, especially as understood by the Catholic tradition.

$205.77 (Single)
$188.40 (Double)

Father Dennis Hamm, SJ, has been a Jesuit since 1958 and a priest since 1970. Though he is retired from full-time teaching at Creighton University, he is still present as Professor Emeritus of Theology and as Scripture scholar-in-residence at the local Jesuit community. While he continues to write for publication (most recently, a commentary on the Gospel of Luke in the Paulist Bible Commentary, forthcoming soon), he spends much of his 'retirement' continuing biblical study and working with Omaha Together One Community's action team on Environmental Sustainability, focusing especially on food and water issues.
