2014 Pope John Paul II Bioethics Lecture: Pope Pius XII as the “Greatest Hero of World War II”

On November 13, 2014 at 7:00 p.m., Gary Krupp, founder and president of Pave the Way Foundation (PWF), will deliver the 2014 Pope John Paul II Bioethics Lecture at Holy Apostles College and Seminary, presenting compelling research in defense of Pope Pius XII’s record as a hero of the Jewish people during World War II. The work of Mr. Krupp and PWF, long dedicated to inter-religious dialogue and tolerance, is international in scope and has done much to further harmony between Jews and Catholics.  Raymond Arroyo interviewed  Mr. Krupp on EWTN’s The World Over earlier this year; you can see that interview here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FcibiK48sk.

The evening will also feature a concert of love songs of medieval Burgundy, performed by Asteria – soprano Sylvia Rhyne and tenor/lutist Eric Redlinger.  The concert begins at 6:00 p.m.,  followed by Mr. Krupp’s lecture at 7:00 p.m.  Both events will be held in Queen of the Apostles Chapel and admission is free. A reception will follow in St. Peter Hall.

Don’t miss this evening of beautiful music and a fascinating look at Pope Pius XII, who courageously defended the highest priority of Christian Bioethics: the defense of human life.   Please see  2014 Pope John Paul Bioethics Lecture  for additional background on Mr. Krupp’s work  and details about the evening.  You may also contact Deacon Tom Davis, Associate Director of the Pope John Paul II Bioethics Center, at tdavis@holyapostles.edu  for more information.
