The Pope encourages José Luis Mendoza to “go ahead with the projects and supporting the Church”


The Pope encourages José Luis Mendoza to “go ahead with the projects and supporting the Church” 



The president of the UCAM (Catholic University of Murcia) participated in a private Mass with Pope Francis and he briefed the Pope about the last details of the international project for the diffusion of the studies on marriage and family by means of on-line degrees.



The president of the UCAM, José Luis Mendoza, participated on Monday in the private Eucharist in the St. Martha’s chapel of the papal residence, presided by His Holiness Pope Francis. Mendoza had the honour of serving at the altar; a delegation of the Catholic University participated as well, together with the president’s wife, María Dolores García, and Javier Belda, dean of the Faculty of Human, Canonical and Religious Sciences and responsible for the degrees that the Catholic University of Murcia has launched with the Pontifical Lateran University, the university of the Pope.




After the celebration of the Mass, José Luis Mendoza informed the Pope about the last details regarding the project for the diffusion of the new impetus that has been given, from Rome, to the Studies on Marriage, Family and Canon Law. During the conversation, in which Francis and the president of the UCAM reminded the days of work shared in the Pontifical Council for the Family, the Pope asked to the highest representative of the Catholic University to “go ahead with the projects and supporting the Church”, in reference to the activities that the educational institution has been developing ever since its origins through different initiatives and that want to boost, in compliance with the model promoted by the Pope, “a widespread university” able to reach the most needy places of the world. At the end of the familiar and emotional moment, with an affectionate embrace, the Pope remembered in a special way the children of the Mendoza couple.


For José Luis Mendoza, this meeting represents “a gift and a great sign of support of the Pope, and an invitation to continue supporting the Church as we have done ever since the founding of the University, by giving the best of ourselves in this important task that we have been given”.

Furthermore, the delegation of the UCAM has held various meetings in different Roman dicasteries in order to consolidate this training project, which is framed in the agreements signed with the Pontifical John Paul II Theological Institute and the Pontifical Lateran University, with the aim of allowing “the thinking of Pope Francis in the canonical and familiar subject to reach the whole world”, as highlighted by Monsignor Vincenzo Paglia, president of the Pontifical John Paul II Theological Institute of Rome.

These agreements entail, among other things, as special commitments of the UCAM, the creation of the Digital Library “Amoris Laetitia” and the possibility to offer, for the first time with an on-line modality and with a civil value, degrees that belong to disciplines such as Canon Law or the new vision of the Studies on Marriage and Family.




“Sister Death”

Outstanding News

“Sister Death” 


“Sister Death” is the title of the book presented at the UCAM, Catholic University of Murcia, by Monsignor Vincenzo Paglia, president of the Pontifical Academy for Life and of the Pontifical John Paul II Theological Institute.  Paglia highlighted in his speech that the concept of death has been erased from the cultural landscape, and no one talks about it any more.


The prelate emphasized the “cultural campaign” that has been carried out about Euthanasia with the aim of making the elderly demand it themselves. He also stressed “the problem of loneliness in today’s society due to the strength of the current culture of individualism, fragmentation and lack of fraternity”.


José Luis Mendoza, president of the UCAM, also took part in the ceremony and said that “at the Catholic University, we are united to the Pope, we totally identify with him”.

Mendoza also announced together with Monsignor Paglia that the Catholic University will organise a congress with the Pontifical Academy for Life that will focus on palliative care.

Worldwide dissemination of the Studies on Marriage and Family

Also in the context of this event, José Luis Mendoza recalled that the UCAM is working along with the Pontifical John Paul II Theological Institute in the dissemination of the studies on marriage and family, taking this training to the most disadvantaged regions of the world through on-line degrees. Those who complete those degrees obtain both the ecclesiastical certificate of the Pontifical Institute and the civil certificate granted by the Catholic University. Javier Belda, dean of the Faculty of Human, Canonical and Religious Sciences, is the coordinator for these studies.

International Congress


International Congress


Since 2015, The International Chair Innocent III organises an International Conference in the Catholic University of  San Antonio, Murcia (UCAM).

Here you can see the last conference's programs.

"Innocent III and his time"

The first International Conference [in the year of the 800th anniversary of the Fourth Lateran Council and of the English Magna Charta] has spoken about Innocent III and his time, from the period of absolute papal monarchy to the Fourth Lateran Council, not only by focusing the point of view of history, but also by underlining law topics. 







"Justice,Merci and Law"


The second International Conference has discussed upon Justice, Mercy and Law [from revenge, to forgiveness in the History of Law]. Retributive way, forgiveness and mercy are the key-words of a new idea of Justice, which has to forsake the concept of private revenge and “revenge for honour” to accomplish its actual aim.


                  



                  The third International Conference has considered the justice and the judicial process in the History of law, from an interdisciplinary point of view: law, comparative law, history, sociology, historiography and other disciplines have been profoundly involved.

MIGRANTS AND REFUGEES IN THE LAW

Historic evolution, current situation and unsolved questions


The Fourth International Conference is organized by the Editors-In-Chiefs of the Cátedra Internacional conjunta Inocencio III, Dr. D. Javier Belda Iniesta [Universidad Católica de Murcia], and Prof. Matteo Nacci [Pontificia Università Lateranense].

The overall theme of the Conference is “Migrants and Refugees in the Law. Historic evolution, current situation and unsolved questions”. The current situation invites us to analyse and comprehend the phenomenon of the “Human mobility”, with a serious and intense interdisciplinary approach, that always has to recognize the central and essential importance of the person. By investigating on the historic evolution and the current situation, this Conference aims to understand whether the Migration has to be contemplated as a mere emergency, or as a possibility for the community.


This International Conference will be divided in three different sessions; each of them will correspond to three distinct periods: the ancient and medieval period [The migration in the ancient and the medieval history. Historical approach to human mobility]; the modern period [Nation, State, Revolution. The situation of the migrants and the refugees from the origin of the modern State] the post-modern period [Between emergency and ordinariness. Proposals for the enhancement of a constant phenomenon in the contemporary age].

·         December 12: session 1. THE MIGRATION IN THE ANCIENT AND MEDIEVAL HISTORY. Historical approach to human mobility.

·         December 13: session 2. NATION, STATE, REVOLUTION. The situation of the migrants and the refugees from the origin of the modern State.


·         December 14: session 3. BETWEEN EMERGENCY AND ORDINARINESS: Proposals for the enhancement of a constant phenomenon in the contemporary age.

The working languages of the Conference will be: English, Italian, German, French and Spanish.

We look forward to a positive confirmation, an honor for us indeed. We believe that your contribution to this field is unparalleled and of great benefit.

The deadline to send us your proposal is September 15, 2018.The Scientific Committee will respond before September 30, 2018.
