the human person: a state of emergency

Oct 3, 2013

One of the many highlights of this year’s Rimini meeting was the encounter with John Waters reflecting on the theme of the 2013 meeting “The Human Person: a State of Emergency.”

Just a word about the Rimini gathering. The youtube clip at this link gives a great introduction and a taste of the experience. This year over 800.000 people were a part of the event. It is difficult to say much more…the experience cannot be communicated in words.

I have heard John Waters speak a few times in recent years. His keynote address to the meeting is worth the hour and a bit of listening time. While the written text is available, in this video clip John sets the pace, the emphases and the progression of his reflection – and therefore (for those not able to hear him in person), it is worth setting the time to savour this encounter with reality.
