Theological Libraries Month 2011

Illumination: Lighting or light; 2. the art of illuminating a manuscript; 3. clarification; 4. spiritual or intellectual enlightenment.  (Oxford Dictionary of English, 2005) What a wonderful theme for this year’s Theological Libraries Month! Certainly the work of libraries and librarians can be seen as a collaborative effort in providing services and collections to our faculty, students and staff that will lead to spiritual and intellectual enlightenment. We invite you to explore, either in person or through its website, the riches found in the A.P. Mahoney Library.
If the life of the spirit is the illumination of knowledge, and if this knowledge is the love of God who produces it, we are right in saying: There is nothing beyond the love of God. St. Maximus the Confessor.
