Roger W. Heyns Lecture featuring Cardinal Reinhard Marx

Established in 1994, the Roger W. Heyns Lecture in Religion and Society is an annual event that features a major speaker focusing on problems and challenges of religion and community.
This year's lecture features Cardinal Reinhard Marx, Archbishop of Munich and Freising, speaking on "The Contribution of Christian Values to the Common Good."
Cardinal Marx has emerged as one of the Roman Catholic Church’s most influential figures. He currently serves as the head of the German Bishops' Conference and as President of the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences in the European Union. He is a member of the Council of Cardinals, which advises Pope Francis on church governance, and was appointed head of the new Council for the Economy, designed to oversee the Vatican’s economic management. 
Cardinal Marx has written and spoken widely on economic questions and the contemporary relevance of Catholic Social Teaching. His book Das Kapital: A Plea for Man (2008) echoes the economic worldview that Pope Francis put forth in Evangelii Gaudium.
