Back to the Garden of Eden: Unearthing God's Covenant with Humank - Dr. Scott Hahn - Session D
Scripture begins with the creation of man and woman in God's image and likeness (Gen 1:26-27), and concludes with a vision of the consummation of salvation history as "the wedding feast of the Lamb" (Rev 19:7-9). Indeed, the primordial form in which humanity bears God's "image and likeness" is the marital covenant. What is the meaning of "covenant" in Scripture? How does it differ from a contract? By exploring the divine institution of marriage-"in the beginning"-as a covenant, we discover profound and practical insights into the social and spiritual dimensions of God's saving plan for the human family.

A Gift from God: The Meaning of Human Sexuality - Dr. Juan Francisco de la Guardia Brin and Mrs. Gabriela N. d

Keynote D - Being created in the image of God has huge implications for the ultimate goals of our lives. When we understand that material creation has spiritual meaning, our views of ourselves, each other, and all of creation transforms. This keynote presentation will combine theology and scientific data to explore how we know that we are all called to live in generous, self-giving ways, whether we are married or celibate. Join us and learn how you can help create a society which values the other. Just be warned: participating in this session might cause you to reexamine the priorities in your own life!

Creating the Future: The Fertility of Christian Love - Prof. Helen Alvare - Keynote C
Our Creator linked the love between a man and a woman with the creation of new life, when God could have made new life otherwise. What does this mean? This presentation will explore the myriad implications of God's linking love with new life - not only for the love between a man and a woman, and between parents and children, but also for the meaning of life. It will consider relevant material from human experience, science, Scriptures, and the Magisterium. Listeners will better understand why welcoming children is so often contested today, and yet so crucial for understanding the meaning of life as love.

The Light of the Family in a Dark World - Cardinal Robert Sarah - Keynote B
God, as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is like a family. The human person, created in the divine image and likeness, reflects the Trinity, most especially in the vocation of self-giving love. Sacred Scripture shows how darkness entered the world through original sin, damaging this vocation and rupturing humanity's relationship to God and neighbor. The consequences are all too evident in a world enveloped by darkness. The Church proclaims Jesus Christ as the light that shines in the darkness. By receiving the gift of charity through the Holy Spirit, the human person can love as Jesus did and remain in communion with God and others. The Christian family becomes the prime witness of this love and unity - a wellspring of faith, hope and love in today's world.

Living as the Image of God: Created for Joy and Love - Bishop Robert Barron - Keynote A
This talk will be an exploration of the extravagant biblical claim that human beings have been made in the image and likeness of God. Our likeness to God is revealed in our intelligence, our hunger for the good, our creativity, our freedom, and, above all, in our capacity for relationship. In living for the other, in giving ourselves away in love, we most resemble God, who is love.
