Santiago, Chile -- Aconcagua Cultural Center: Pauline Congress
On the occasion of the Pauline Year, the Aconcagua Cultural Center organized a conference about the Apostle to the Gentiles and his historical milieu.
In one of the talks, Fr. Jose Miguel Ibañez Langlois described the human and supernatural personality of Saul of Tarsus. The speaker stressed that the spiritual riches bequeathed by St. Paul are a perennial treasure for the whole Church. He also highlighted the vocation of each of the baptized and the role of the lay faithful in spreading the Gospel message throughout the world. The second part of the conference was given by Prof. Raquel Soaje, a specialist in ancient history. His presentation was entitled “The Roman World in the Era of St. Paul.”
