Newman-Scotus Symposium – Deacon John Sullivan asks what role illumination plays in the intellect.
Dr. Ford answers by calling this the eureka moment where many different peaces of information comes together into one sudden insight that brings it all together in one coherent picture. Newman speaks of taking a view, and that this leads to a need for action to follow through by conversion and to show others this new view.
Follow up question, how do know if this new view or eureka moment is true?
Dr. Ford answers by saying there is no formula to know. But only points to the need to include the need for the will being involved in the process of inference.

On the first night of the Newman-Scotus Symposium we have the first Panel discussion. Fr. James McCurry asks the first question, how the Pope seemed to blame Scotus for Modernism at Regensberg but then later, at a Wednesday address, to praise him and basically retract his negative statement. Dr. Timothy Noone addresses this and explains the basis for this common objection to Scotus that comes from a long standing misconception about the Scotus’ teaching. One is the misconception that Scotus is voluntarist and the other that he is a nominalist and involves Scotus’ teaching on the common nature.

http://www.romereprots.com Press conferences at over 6,000 feet in the sky. It was a practice that began with a question by an American journalist to John Paul II during his first trip as pope. The reporter wanted to know if he would visit the United States. John Paul II said that he would definitely visit the country but he would have to specify when.
This question marked the beginning of a custom that now seems normal during papal trips, but until then it was unheard of and unthinkable.
Fr James McCurry gives an inspirational welcome and introduction to the Newman-Scotus Symposium at the Washington Theological Union on Oct 22, 2010. He reads a warm letter of encouragement from Friar Marco Tasca, OFM Conv., the Minster General of the Conventual Franciscans from Rome, asking the participants to energetically uncover, for all the world to see, the common intellectual treasure that these two holy and eminent British scholars share, centered on the Absolute Primacy of Christ and the primacy of Love. He reflects on the Pope’s words at the very recent beatification of Newman in Birmingham, England where he mentions Newman’s motto Cor ad Cor Loquitor, Heart speaks unto Heart where God and man speak heart to heart. Fr. McCurry mentions the equivalent starting point for Scotus’ theology where God wills to love. God wills to be loved. God willed to have co-lovers of himself and so he created the world and man with the goal of the incarnation via Mary Immaculate. He ends by reciting a prayer to Our Lady written by Bl. John Cardinal Newman to give us protection and the purity of heart and mind to be good and wise Christians.
