The 19th Annual Rita Cassella Jones Lecture on Women and U.S. Catholicism will be presented by Nancy Pineda-Madrid, Ph.D. (Loyola Marymount University).ome

Pineda-Madrid’s lecture will explore how disciples of Jesus Christ must denounce and subvert this evil, finding in Pope Francis’ writings a source to encourage Christian hope through the subversion of evil. Ultimately, she claims that the subversion of this evil will enable us to see more clearly the goodness of God in the land of the living—that is, salvation.
