Fr Matthias gives the homily at Bloomington, IN, on Nov 08, 2022, on the life of Bl. John Duns Scotus, who was a Franciscan theologian and was the first person to successfully defend the Immaculate Conception of Mary on a solid theological basis.

Light and Thought, Our ideas shape our life and sense of reality and those of others. He was known as the Subtle doctor who explained subtle distinctions of such things as the reason for the incarnation and univocity of being. But as subtle as they were, they had a profound influence on subsequent thought and teaching in the Franciscan order and the Church and influenced the devotions as well. Let us follow his example by turning to Mary to be enlightened to know her Son.

Ave Maria!
