Lecture in Christian Ethics
An Annual Presentation on Ethics
Human Being Fully Alive:
Being and Act[ing] in Moral and Spiritual Theology
Presented by Very Rev. Justin J. Kizewski on April 12
This talk explored the metaphysical grounding of certain principles in moral and spiritual theology. Through a consideration of the contributions of St. Thomas Aquinas in the areas of metaphysics and morals, we sought to draw conclusions from the fullness of being found in God about the goodness of human acts and growth in the spiritual life.
Fr. Kizewski is a priest of the Diocese of La Crosse. He earned his doctorate in Sacred Theology from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome in 2016. In addition to serving as pastor of two parishes and dean of the Chippewa Deanery, he is also director of spiritual formation for the La Crosse program of formation for permanent deacons. He has taught at Saint Paul Seminary, the Pontifical Gregorian University, McDonnell Central High School, and the Christendom College in Rome.
Fr. Kizewski will be joining the Saint Francis de Sales Seminary formation faculty as Director of Intellectual Formation beginning with the 2021-2022 program year.
