Congratulations to LIM graduate Kathy Smith who, as a result of her studies in Religion and Ecology at LIM, is the founder and Executive Director of Baptist Creation Care Initiative!  Its mission is to offer a distinctly Baptist voice of faith, enriched by science and action, and empowered by biblical insight and a love of creation. She writes, "We strive to be a venue where Baptists of many different traditions can discuss the place of both the Bible and science in our shared understanding of God's wonderful creation.

Because of her interaction with Passionist “Ecologian” Fr. Thomas Berry beginning in the early 1990s, LIM Professor Emerita Kathleen O’Gorman was a forerunner in highlighting the centrality of creation for practical theology, pastoral studies, and religious education.  To honor his work at Loyola and her legacy in the Loyola Institute for Ministry, we have developed the Berry Project.  For more information about the Berry Project, see http://gps.loyno.edu/lim/thomas-berry-project.

The article explores the intersection of the study of materiality, a medieval instance of the sensus fidelium in the eucharistic Feast of Corpus Christi, and the paradox that the bodily senses other than taste and touch can be a means of encounter with the divine. In doing so, the article gestures toward implications for laity, spirituality, and theology today.
