Today I participated in the Ninth Annual John F. Scarpa Conference on Law, Politics and Culture at Villanova Law School, on the theme Catholic Legal Theory: Aspirations, Challenges and Hopes. The conference gathered many of those with whom I co-blog on Mirror of Justice and who, over the years, have become very good friends. As always, it was nourishing to spend time with these friends and colleague during a day that included Mass, several sessions of presentations, and some time for spiritual reflection (which I led, on the subject of humility). We ended the day with dinner and extended time to socialize.
I’m way too tired to write anything substantive about the day. So for now I’ll simply say that over the course of the day, Rick Garnett summarized the talks of the various speakers in a series of Mirror of Justice posts. I encourage you to take a look at his posts. I’ll try to post some further thoughts tomorrow.
