Looking for Happiness: A Talk with Fr. Gabriel O’Donnell, O.P.
December 23, 2013
The human heart naturally desires happiness. But where is happiness to be found? Is it reasonable to hope that we can be happy in this life? On January 16, 2014, Fr. Gabriel O’Donnell, O.P., will explore the connection between happiness and hope in the modern world as part of the Institute for Psychological Sciences’ 2013-2014 Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman Lecture Series. Fr. Gabriel’s presentation is the third part in a six-part series of talks sponsored by the Institute for Psychological Sciences in Arlington, VA. Their website proposes the series in the following terms: “The 2013-2014 Blessed Newman Lecture Series is an interdisciplinary conversation about the difference that Christian hope makes in building a bridge beyond: rooted in the past, clear-eyed about the present, and reaching towards the future.” Complete information about Fr. Gabriel’s talk can be found here. The lecture will be on January 16 at 5:00 P.M., across the street from IPS at the Hampton Inn (2000 Jefferson Davis Hwy., Arlington, VA 22202) in the Dogwood Room located on the first floor. The lecture is free and open to the public, but a reservation is required. See the link above to make a reservation.
