Exposition on Saturday, which continued until Midnight.
Over the weekend I was at the Evangelium Conference, for the first time. I gave two short talks and was on the 'Apologetics Panel', which was asked to respond to a number of very interesting questions.
Fr Marcus Holden introducing a speaker.
I didn't take a vast number of photos, since for once I was attending something as a footsoldier rather than an organiser, but I have got a few more here. The conference was both spiritually uplifting and intellectually very stimulating.
Edmund Adamus gave a fascinating 'plenary' talk on the Family and the Culture of Death.
I was very impressed by the interest of participants in philosophy. My talks had been given titles which made it clear they were going to be pretty abstract - 'How do I know I have a soul?' and 'Showing that God exists from reason' - but although there were four talks going on simultaneously, both of mine were packed. Indeed, the first one, which was in a rather small classroom, people were standing at the back and sitting on the floor.
The organisers deserve great credit for the conference, which has now taken place four times. I hope it will continue to flourish.
The LMS stall, which I set up and manned during the breaks, alongside stalls from St Anthony Communications, the CTS, and Steve Ray, the American apologist.
Tomorrow I'll be putting up photographs of a Traditional Mass I attended while there.

This is very good news, indeed. Do you intend to make the transcripts of these talks available on-line or in some other format? I'd be interested to read them.
Er, no they were given from rather scanty notes I'm afraid! Indeed in the second talk I didn't even have my notes, they'd gone missing (someone picked up my folder thinking it was theirs).ReplyDelete
