Description

The Information Age has made us witnesses to the breadth of the world's sorrows like never before. Often, we are overwhelmed by all we know. If it is a hurricane in Haiti one day, it is a chemical bombing in Syria the next, then a terrorist attack in Egypt followed by a mass shooting in Las Vegas, and on and on and on. As we look around us, we know that everyone everywhere knows the wounds of the world, sometimes very intimately, always very universally. What do we do? After we have cried out, 'Christ have mercy,' then what?

n

This symposium grows out of the long friendship of Makoto Fujimura and Steven Garber, who together have wrestled with the meaning of their own vocations in the face of the tears of Christ, finding in them a way to live, and still love, amidst the ruins. Delve deeply into the meaning of Martin Scorcese's film, Silence, from the novel by Shusaku Endo. Reflect on our common calling to listen to the suffering of the world, even as we speak to the world in and through our own unique vocations.
