Pope Francis described disabled people as ‘hidden exiles’ in today’s society (Fratelli Tutti 98). This seminar will look at the Church’s theology of disability and how it intersects with understandings of the image of God. We will then consider the ways in which this is changing and directions for future development of theology, social teaching and pastoral practice.
Engaging Your Faith is a series of short online presentations that invite participants to reflect on what it means to be people of faith in the contemporary world. Experienced lecturers from Catholic Theological College present on a variety of topics, including philosophy, Lumen Gentium, spirituality, biblical studies, Christian meditation, theology, interfaith relations, future technology, and science and religion.
