As a newly-ordained priest, St. John Paul II earned his first doctorate at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas, widely known as the Angelicum, after St. Thomas’ title of Angelic Doctor.
On their alumnus’ feast day this year, the Angelicum hosted a concert of Polish music written in his honor or inspired by his work, beginning with the Górecki Totus tuus.
The concert was held in the magnificent Church of Saints Dominic and Sixtus on the Angelicum campus.
Today, the Angelicum along with the Thomistic Institute hosted a study day that included a number of interesting talks. English speakers may wish to advance to just after hour 5 to hear Fr. Thomas Joseph White, OP, speak on Political Questions during this time of pandemic.
