On Monday, 6 October 2014 at 15h00, the SJV community were delighted to welcome Fr Paul Requena, a lecturer at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome, who is on a visit to South Africa. His lecture was titled: “Current Bioethical Issues: A Challenge for Christian Reflection“.

Fr Requena situated Bioethics within the academic discipline of Moral Theology, whereafter he dealt with a few selected issues, with their ethical implications, related to situations at the Beginning and End of Life. He was able to present these complex issues in a most interesting, balanced, and accessible way. We are grateful that he was able to fit SJV into his schedule.
