Loyola University Museum of Art Kicks Off “Tea with the Jesuits”
Lecture Series Opens with Discussion on Human Vulnerability and Christian Imagery


The Loyola University Museum of Art kicks off its new “Tea with the Jesuits”series this week with a lecture by Leo J. O’Donovan, S.J., president emeritus of Georgetown University. While Christian imagery deals with forms of sorrow like grief, mourning, and repentance, the Passion of Christ continues to be one of the most evocative tools. This opening lecture by Father O’Donovan will explore the Lenten season, Holy Week, and how human vulnerability is expressed in Christian imagery.

The event is free with museum admission and RSVP is encouraged. To register, send an e-mail to luma@luc.edu or call 312.915.7608.

Looking ahead, the series will continue in April and May with guest speakers Terrence E. Dempsey, S.J., director of the Museum of Contemporary Religious Art at Saint Louis University and Stephen Krupa, S.J., of Loyola’s Institute of Pastoral Studies. More information on their lectures can be found at LUC.edu/luma/events.
