7:00 PM | The Possibility of Perfection

Duke University
Perkins 217

A lecture by Fr. Gregory Pine, OP (The Thomistic Institute)

7:00 PM

Event Description:

In the Sermon on the Mount, the Lord instructs us to be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect . . . inspiring on one hand, but daunting on the other. Is it possible to be perfect or are we doomed to despair? Come hear how the universal call to holiness resonates really, truly, and personally in every human heart.
