Make A Difference in the Church and World
At the Loyola Institute for Ministry (LIM), we offer graduate degrees and certificates that are transformative and affordable. Our goal is to promote our students’ passionate commitment to ministry both in the classroom and outside of it, and we believe our best shot is in the combination of theology and spirituality and a focus on practical implications.
We take your future seriously, and we have a broad vision of ministry. We offer degrees that will help you reach your goals and advance your career, whether you work in a Catholic setting--in a church, school or diocese--or beyond.
LIM Professor Tom Ryan publishes article on the Eucharist, laity, materiality, and spirituality in the Middle Ages
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.
