Visit Of The Rector Magnificus


Rev. Dr. Carlo Nanni, the Rector Magnificus of the Salesian Pontifical University paid a visit to the Jerusalem campus of the Faculty of Theology on 19 November 2013. Dr. Carlo Nanni is on an official visit to Israel on the invitation of the Foreign Ministry of Israel. He, along with the Rectors of Pontifical Universities in Rome are having meetings and discussions with Universities and cultural institutes in Israel.

In his address this evening to the members of the Faculty of Theology in Jerusalem he urged the cultivation of a theological attitude beyond the study of theology. One must be able to read and see God and His active hand in the daily events of life, especially in the pluralistic society in Jerusalem. He also pointed to the need for a study of theology that focuses on 1) the full development of the human being –fully mature with the fullness of Christ (cf. Eph 4:13); 2) the education of young people; 3) involving the intellect (head), emotions (heart) and the passions. He concluded his message stating that the study of Theology is demanding. Everything of value is demanding but is worth the struggle and sacrifice.
