Cardinal Michael Czerny, SJ, head of the Vatican’s Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, is the Curia’s chief promoter of the social justice ministry of Pope Francis, a fellow Jesuit.

Cardinal Czerny will be discussing his latest book, Siblings All, Sign of the Times: The Social Teaching of Pope Francis. Written with Italian theologian Father Michael Barone, this work traces the path of social justice that Francis has laid out—a body of teaching that is both radical in responding to the dynamics of our era, but also grounded in Catholic tradition and the Second Vatican Council.

In this discussion at the offices of America Media, Cardinal Czerny will be joined by Christine Firer Hinze, chair of Fordham University’s Department of Theology, and Anthony Annett, Visiting Scholar at the Center for Sustainable Development at Columbia University and author of Cathonomics: How Catholic Tradition Can Create a More Just Economy.

The event will begin with a wine and cheese reception at 5:30 p.m., and the book discussion will begin at 6:15 p.m. Books will be available for sale.

Space is limited, and reservation is required.

There is a deeper problem than the chaos in the U.S. House: the question of what a government is for, and how it is to function beyond matters that a bare majority can vote through.
