Speaker: Rev. James F. Keenan, S.J.
This talk suggests that longstanding “conscience formation programs” are not all that successful unless they help us first to cultivate the capacities to be vulnerable to one another and to recognize the other, often overlooked. My thesis is that, until there’s vulnerability and the willingness to recognize, there isn’t much capacity to be a person of conscience.
