A Guide to Happiness: The Promise of Thomism in the Modern Church

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

6:00 pm EST - 7:00 pm EST


Young Professionals Happy Hour with Fr. Thomas Joseph White

The teaching of Thomas Aquinas is based in common-sense, accessible to all, and yet open to the highest truths about God and creation. It is also a teaching uniquely able to resolve modern conundrums regarding faith and reason, science and religion, morality and the public square. This presentation seeks to make Aquinas’ insight accessible to new comers and to suggest its timeliness to the initiated.

White studied at Brown University. He converted to Catholicism his senior year, influenced by reading Flannery O’Connor, Aristotle, Newman, Balthasar and John Paul II. He did his doctoral studies at Oxford University where his research focused on Aquinas’ metaphysics and arguments for the existence of God. Fr.
