LTS Dean to Speak at Conference

Divine Compassion Conference

Fr Roberto Ubertino, the dean of the Lived Theology School, is the keynote speaker at an upcoming conference (in November) of St Catherine's Vision, a Pan-Orthodox organization of theologians and lay leaders.

Divine Compassion:
Orthodox Christians in Service of ‘Perfect Love’

November 14 - 16, 2013
Hellenic College - Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, Brookline, MA

Our Lord revealed the Father to be a compassionate God. Christ expressed this divine compassion through his dealings with the sick, the poor, the women, the outcasts, and all those who were abused, forgotten and in need. He assured them of the Father’s love and compassion. For they were his valued daughters and sons. At the same time, the Lord calls his followers to be compassionate.

Divine Compassion: Orthodox Christians in Service of 'Perfect Love' will provide the opportunity for Orthodox Christians to understand more deeply the reality of Divine Compassion, the eleos of God, and how we are called to bear witness to it within the Church and society.

This conference will bring together persons who relate a theocentric and philanthropic theology with the real needs of persons. These include clergy, theologians, philanthropists, educators, pastoral care-givers, counselors, first-responders, chaplains, philoptochos members, health care providers, and students.

The conference is co-sponsored by Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Boston and Saint Catherine's Vision, a Pan-Orthodox association of women theologians and other lay-leaders.
