MOCRA's Director, Terrence Dempsey, S.J., delivers the Loyola Chair Lecture at Fordham University.

"The Image of the Wounded Body of Christ and the Modern Social Consciousness" will offer an overview of how images associated with the suffering and death of Jesus still have vitality, even in a pluralistic world. Images referring to the events of Good Friday have been employed by the artists of our time not only to manifest an expression of faith but more frequently to address life and death realities such as war, bigotry, poverty, oppression, genocide, sickness and pandemics in order to stimulate empathetic responses within the viewers..
