Br. Nathan Cochran, O.S.B., instructor and chair of the Saint Vincent College Department of Visual Arts in the School of Humanities and Fine Arts, and director of the Saint Vincent Gallery, was a guest lecturer on March 2 at the Catholic Church of Saint Mary the Virgin in Arlington, Texas. His talk was entitled, “Reimagining Christendom.”
The talk was part of a Lenten Lecture Series sponsored by the parish, which is “A Parish of the Pastoral Provision of Pope John Paul II for the Anglican Usage of the Roman Rite.”
The lecture topic was chosen by the pastor, Fr. Allen Hawkins, and based on the book Christendom Awake by Fr. Aidan Nichols. The particular chapter Br. Nathan spoke about posits that western culture needs to be re-evangelized in order to return to Christendom, and that the monarchical form of government is best suited for this purpose. Br. Nathan was asked to speak specifically on this topic because of his work with the Cause of Canonization of Blessed Emperor Karl of Austria.
Other speakers in the series include: Fr. Jeffrey Steenson (The Ordinary of the Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter); Chanacee Ruth-Killgore (director of the Fort Worth Diocesan Catholics Respect Life Office); Dr. James Patrick (founder and chancellor of the College of Saint Thomas More); His Excellency Bishop Kevin Vann, Bishop of Fort Worth; and John Medaille (adjunct instructor of theology at the University of Dallas).
