The Capstones Continue

On Tuesday, March 19, the next two college-four students offered their capstone presentations to the seminary community.  In the morning Patrick Klekas presented in the library auditorium, and in the afternoon Felipe Jimenez presented in St. Joseph Chapel.

Patrick entitled his capstone "The Elusive Truth: Sola Scriptura and Kierkegaard's Contribution to Protestant Relativism."  He used the doctrine of sola scriptura and the philosophy of Soren Kierkegaard to explore the reasons behind the large number of Christian denominations today.

Dr. Andrew Cummings directed Patrick's project, Fr. Richard Keolker served as his reader, and Sister Hilda Kleiman, OSB, served as the English Standards reader.  Patrick also offered his thanks to Fr. Hugh Feiss, OSB.

Felipe entitled his capstone "A Road to Heaven: St. John Vianney and the Sacrament of Reconciliation."  He drew the title for his work from the words that St. John Vianney offered to a young shepherd who gave him directions to the village of Ars: "My young friend, you have shown me the way to Ars; I shall show you the way to heaven."  Felipe also provided each person who attended his presentation with of prayer card of St. John Vianney.
