The Foolishness of Christianity


In our contemporary age, Christianity is viewed as compatible with the values and priorities of our society. Yet the Gospel itself offers a very different set of insights, challenges. and inspiration. In this talk, Fr. Horan will explore the foolishness of Christianity as a positive force for change and conversion in the face of division, discrimination, and violence. Drawing on the example of St. Francis, he will reflect on ways to overcome our tendency to domesticate the Gospel and instead respond to a call to be radically foolish. 

Daniel P. Horan, OFM, is a Franciscan friar of Holy Name Province (NY), a visiting assistant professor of systematic theology at the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, and the author of many books and articles. He has been described as “a rising star in Catholic theology.”
