We at the Dawson Society were thrilled by the announcement of Professor Tracey Rowland’s appointment to the International Theological Commission. The Commission, established by Blessed Pope Paul VI in 1969 for the purpose of “assisting the Holy See, and in particular the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, in examining the most important and current doctrinal questions.”
Professor Rowland is the Dean of the Melbourne session of the John Paul II Institute for Marriage and Family and is the author of a number of books including ‘Culture and the Thomist Tradition since Vatican II’, ‘Ratzinger’s Faith’, and Pope Benedict XVI: A Guide for the Perplexed’.
The Dawson Society is also privileged to have Professor Rowland as a member of its advisory committee. We offer her our sincere congratulations and thank her for her ongoing service to the Church.
Professor Rowland spoke last year at a Speakers Forum evening for the Dawson Society on the role of beauty in evangelisation. A recording of that lecture is available below.
