"...so the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed." (Week Five)

"And coming forward at that very time, she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all who were awaiting the redemption of Jerusalem."
Luke 2:38

Please choose and respond to one of the following questions in your final paper:

I. Having read John Paul II's 1988 World Day of Peace Message (or click here) and in light of what you have learned the past five weeks, how would you respond to this event at the US Air Force Academy (click here and here)?

II. One of the documents of Vatican II states that “a man is more precious for what he is rather than for what he has” (GS 35). Using what you have learned in the past five weeks, please explain how this sentence defines the Christian vocation and moral life in Christ.

Please email your essay to Christina as an .doc(x) or .pdf attachment by FRIDAY, 11 FEBRUARY at 11:00pm.

The final essay is the occasion to demonstrate what you have learned in this session (e.g. law, conscience, freedom, virtue, etc.), but you are not required to discuss *every* theme at length.  Please remember that your essays do not require secondary research (beyond course texts, unless recommended by the instructor). However, typical stylistic conventions such as grammar, spelling, and usage are still and always important! Citing from the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Veritatis Splendor, and/or other relevant documents is expected, but lengthy quotes (more than two lines) within the body of the text are discouraged.

Essays should be four (4) pages. This means completely developed paragraphs, cohesively organized around a solid, arguable thesis statement. Each essay should be double-spaced, using Times New Roman font at 12pt with standard margins (1” top-bottom, 1.25” right-left). No cover page is needed, but your name and the date should appear at the top of the first page.
