Here is the conference I gave last year on Fr. Peter Damian Fehlner’s contribution to the renewal of Franciscan Immaculatism.
Update (6/6/16): Here are the notes as promised. I was tasked with a forty minute oral presentation followed by ten minutes of questions on the topic with another twenty minutes on anything in dogmatic theology.
Thank you all so much for your prayers. I am very, very grateful.
I just wanted to give a brief update and then do nothing at all. I am bushed.
I presented yesterday on the Triple Way in Dionysius. Within the next few days, I will post the file of my notes for the presentation. It was challenging and I was grilled with questions but in the end my moderator, Fr. Bernard Blankenhorn, OP, told me that I passed with flying colors.
It was very reassuring to know that I had so many wonderful people praying for me. Again I am most grateful.
I am still waiting to find out my overall grade, as the second reader for my tesina has yet submitted it, but I know I have passed and have finished the degree of License in Sacred Theology.
God bless all of you.
I have not been blogging for the a very long time now due to the demands of my studies, not least of which was the writing of my tesina (small thesis) on the development of doctrine in St. Bonaventure’s Collations on the Six Days. I finish my decree of License in Sacred Theology at the Angelicum this Friday with the lectio coram, which is an oral comprehensive exam consisting of a forty minute lecture in front of a board of my professors and about a half hour of answering questions on my topic and on theology in general.
Thanks for all your prayers over the last couple of years of my studying. I would be gratefully once again for a Hail Mary or two.
Here is the introduction from my tesina for whoever might be interested.
I will post on the results afterwards and then perhaps get back to blogging. God bless.
