Legatus Summit Seminar:
The Sacraments and Salvation

Thursday, January 26, 2017,
01:30pm to 03:00pm

A Guided Discussion from
St. Thomas Aquinas’ Summa Theologiae


In conjunction withLegatus
The Ritz-Carlton
Naples, Florida
January 26, 2017
Seminar: 1:30 – 3:00 p.m.

Christ acts through the Sacraments, and so the Catholic Church is thoroughly sacramental. But if God’s grace is sufficient, and if Christ’s death on the Cross satisfied for man’s sins, why does man need the Sacraments at all? St. Thomas Aquinas considers these questions and others in the Summa Theologiae.

In this seminar participants will look closely at St. Thomas’ analysis and, in so doing, come to the heart of the Church’s teaching about the role of the Sacraments in salvation. Please join members of the faculty of Thomas Aquinas College for this seminar which will take place during the Legatus Summit on Thursday, January 26, 2017 from 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Ritz-Carlton in Naples, Florida. To attend this seminar please register at thomasaquinas.edu/legatus-summit.

This seminar is not a lecture; nor is it a discourse among a panel of experts. Everyone in attendance is invited to participate actively in the conversation, working together to distill and analyze the meaning of this important document. Leading the seminar will be the Col­lege’s president, Dr. Michael F. McLean, and its vice president, Dr. Paul J. O’Reilly.

Dr. McLean and Dr. O’Reilly have collectively spent more than 50 years leading seminars as members of the Thomas Aquinas College teaching faculty. At the College, all classes are taught via the discussion method. The curriculum consists exclusively of the great books of Western civilization, including various Church documents and encyclicals.
