2013-GA-1 “Faith, Hope and Love in Action” - Mark Shriver
In this Year of Faith, Mark Shriver shares his father’s example to glean insights about the durability of faith, a faith that demands acts of hope and love. How did Sargent Shriver create the Peace Corps, lead the “War on Poverty,” expand Special Olympics around the globe, and still attend Mass on a daily basis? Sharing the lessons he learned in writing his New York Times best-selling memoir, “A Good Man: Rediscovering My Father, Sargent Shriver,” Mark Shriver will explore the source of his father’s joy – his faith – and how it sustained him through life. It is this faith that can help us all as we strive to be better men and women.
Fr. Richard Fragomeni will contextualize the session in the vision proposed by the Year of Faith. Fr. Fragomeni is Associate Professor of Liturgy and Homiletics and Chair of the Department of Word and Worship at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago.
