While we do commonly use it to mean "universal," Ong points out that the Latin or Roman Church (as distinct from the Orthodox or Eastern Church) had a word for universal in Latin -- (meaning "turn").The image it evokes is something like an architect's compass, which is used to make a circle around "one" central point. He has delivered keynote addresses and invited lectures at universities and in dioceses around the United States, Europe, and Canada. In addition to print publications, he is the instructor in an 18-part video lecture series titled, “The Saint and the Pope: What the Spirituality of Two Men Named Francis can Teach us about Christian Living,” produced by (2016).J., wrote an essay for magazine that responded to the perennial question for educators in Catholic institutions of higher education: How does such a school incorporate this nebulous concept "catholic identity" into its mission in a tangible way?Ong's contribution was to look at the meaning of the word catholic itself to get a better handle on the task at hand.In this talk, the most important objectives will be addressed and will therefore serve as a guide for instructors.
