The Current of Desire: A Philosophy of Love in Motion

Catholic Information Center

1501 K Street NW
Washington, DC 20005 United States


This event is in person!

The popular prophets of the twenty-first century encourage a wholesale embrace of human desire. If you want it, you ought to have it. But, to what extent can our desires be trusted? And, in what sense do they reveal our destiny? This lecture will consider desire according to the mind of St. Thomas Aquinas as a love in motion, specifically a love that stands in need of healing and growth. For only with order and by discipline does one attain to the horizon of his homing.

Co-Sponsored with The Congressional Catholic Staff Association.
