The panel will summarize and contextualize the importance of the document for the church and the world in the light of the signs of the times. Prominent scholars from Loyola University Chicago will offer their reactions to the document, discuss how the document intersects with the aims of their professions, and how they engage curriculum that highlights peace and social justice in their vocations.
