Competing for promotions, seeking to pay less and get more, fighting competitors for clients. The person God calls us to be may seem to some professionals to be an ideal rather than a reality. They say the reality – especially in the work world – can be brutal.
The Rev. Seán Charles Martin, a diocesan priest from Dallas and associate professor of biblical studies at Aquinas Institute, will offer thoughts on that tension during “St. Paul the Businessman,” part of a Theology on Tap series sponsored by Aquinas Institute of Theology. Theology on Tap begins at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 31, upstairs at the Tap Room, 2100 Locust St. Fr. Martin will speak at 6:30 p.m.
Fr. Martin earned a master of arts in theology from University of Dallas, a master of arts in English from University of Notre Dame, and a license of sacred theology and doctorate of sacred theology from the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. He describes himself as “currently preoccupied” with how St. Paul’s work was carried out in the two generations after his death.
Aquinas Institute of Theology, a graduate school on the campus of Saint Louis University, sponsors Theology on Tap. The series helps Catholics apply Church teachings to contemporary questions. Theology on Tap is designed to provide a casual gathering place for Catholics to sip beer, hear brief presentations and ask questions.
