Bishop James Conley

Bishop James Conley

Bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska

Truth without mercy is callused legalism. Mercy without truth is unhelpful sentimentality. As missionary disciples of Jesus Christ, we must be merciful witness to truth, and truthful sources of mercy. Only the unity of truth and mercy leads others to holiness, and represents faithful service to Christ and His Church.

Credo St. Louis is honored to welcome Bishop James Conley, Bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska, to speak our annual Christ the King forum. A convert to Catholicism, Bishop Conley was ordained a priest in 1985, and served the Church for ten years in Rome at the Congregation for Bishops, before receiving episcopal consecration himself in 2008. Now leading the Diocese of Lincoln, he has maintained the good model set in place by his predecessors, Bishops Glennon Flavin and Fabian Bruskewitz, focusing on solid Catholic education in all of his diocesan schools, reserving service at the altar to men, and encouraging priestly vocations, with dozens of seminarians currently studying in their seminary. He recently has taken a strong, public stance against the trend of transgenderism spreading across the country, steadfastly proclaiming the beauty of God’s teaching on sexuality. In all of his works, Bishop Conley has seen his life as a priest as a call to service and complete surrender to “God’s providential hand.”

EWTN Personality, Internationally Acclaimed Author & Shakespeare Scholar

William Shakespeare’s Catholic Faith and why it is important for us is especially timely during the 400th anniversary of the death of this great English writer. Shakespeare is indisputably one of the few very best literary giants of all time, along with Dante and Homer.  It is a real privilege for Credo and the entire St. Louis area to have Joseph Pearce speak at the June 26th Credo Forum about why the Bard was Catholic.

Joseph Pearce, a native of England, is writer in residence at Aquinas College in Nashville, Tennessee, and Director of the college’s Center for Faith and Culture.  He is editor of the St. Austin Review (www.staustinreview.com), an international review of Catholic culture, series editor of the of the Ignatius Critical Editions (www.ignatiuscriticaleditions.com), and executive director of Catholic Courses (www.catholiccourses.com).

The internationally acclaimed author of many books, including bestsellers The Quest for Shakespeare,  Tolkien: Man and Myth,  The Unmasking of Oscar Wilde,  C. S. Lewis and The Catholic Church,  Literary Converts,  Wisdom and Innocence: A Life of G. K. Chesterton,  Solzhenitsyn: A Soul in Exile and Old Thunder: A Life of Hilaire Belloc,  Joseph Pearce is a world-recognized biographer of modern Christian literary figures.  His books have been published and translated into Spanish, Portuguese, French, Dutch, Italian, Korean, Mandarin, Croatian and Polish.

Pearce has hosted two 13-part television series about Shakespeare on EWTN, and has also written and presented EWTN documentaries on the Catholicism of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

Pearce, additionally has participated and lectured at a wide variety of literary events at major colleges and universities in the U. S., Canada, Britain, Europe, Africa and South America.  He is also a regular guest on national and international television and radio programs, and has served as consultant for film documentaries on J.R.R. Tolkien, Francis Thompson and Alexander Solzhenitsyn.
