The air is filled with discussion about various vulnerable populations in today’s world—displaced people, abused and neglected children, the disadvantaged and disaffected, the innocent victims of violence, and those whose freedoms are limited by political, economic, or social realities.

What relevant messages might the art and beauty of The Saint John's Bible offer people especially in the current polarized environment? St. Mary's Director of The Saint John's Bible Project, Bob O’Connor, Ph.D, will examine this very question by exploring how such awful situations and responses to them have been illuminated.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

Questions? Contact Bob O'Connor at roconnor@stmarytx.edu or 210-436-3799.


Because of a generoous gift from Ruben Escobedo, a 1960 graduate of St. Mary’s, and his wife Veronica Salazar Escobedo, the Escobedo Saint John’s Bible Lecture Series was created and allows St. Mary’s to share the remarkable illuminated pages with members of the St. Mary’s community, and faith communities from across Texas and the nation.
