Imaging Mercy Today November 2013

 Nga mihi atawhai – greetings to all in Mercy! Expected here later this month, for lectures in Auckland and Christchurch, is US Franciscan Sister Ilia Delio. Hosted by the Sisters of Mercy in this country, she will address the topic of ‘Theology and Science’, with a subtext of ‘Christ, evolution and emergent wholeness.’

‘Evolution is the new wine of our time,’ says Ilia Delio. ‘The old is not bad; it simply cannot contain the new wine.’ Conversion is key to Catholic life in the 21st century, she says, ‘because conversion is turning in grace toward new life – to participate in whole-making and the emergence of Christ.’ (EC, pp. 9-10)
