“Arzobispo Marcos McGrath, CSC: un pastor según el corazón del Concilio Vaticano II”“Arzobispo Marcos McGrath, CSC: un pastor según el corazón del Concilio Vaticano II”
“Archbishop Marcos McGrath, CSC: A Pastor at the Heart of the Second Vatican Council”
(Lecture in Spanish with English translation)

Cardinal Lacunza will discuss the life and witness of Archbishop Marcos McGrath, CSC, a 1945 graduate of the University of Notre Dame who became archbishop of Panama.  The impact of his work is multifaceted, stretching across the Second Vatican Council, the pastoral initiatives of CELAM at Medellín and Puebla, North-South collaboration, issues of US diplomacy, and the relationship between pastoral planning and the social sciences in Panama and other areas of Latin America. Cardinal Lacunza, who worked closely with McGrath, will focus in particular on the archbishop’s influence on Vatican II.

Cosponsored by Latin American/North American Church Concerns (LANACC) and supported by a gift from former Kellogg Advisory Board Chair Mark McGrath

José Luis Cardinal Lacunza Maestrojuán, OARJosé Luis Cardinal Lacunza Maestrojuán, OAR has served as bishop of David, Panama, since 1999. Pope Francis elevated Lacunza to the rank of cardinal in 2015, making him the first member of the Order of Augustinian Recollects and the first Panamanian to be so named. In 2013, he was named to the pope’s “gang of eight,” the group of cardinals from around the world who are advising Pope Francis on Church governance and reforms. And in 2019, he will play a major role when Panama hosts the Church’s World Youth Day.

Lacunza has served as president of the Episcopal Conference of Panama (2010–13) and as an official of the Latin American Episcopal Conference (CELAM). He achieved national prominence through his mediation of a violent dispute that broke out between the government and the indigenous Ngöbe–Buglé people over the mining of their ancestral lands.

He was named rector of the Universidad Santa Maria La Antigua (USMA) in 1985. A year later, he was ordained auxiliary bishop of then Archbishop of Panama Marcos McGrath, CSC. In 1990, Lacunza left academia to be of greater service to McGrath, who was increasingly affected by Parkinson’s disease.

A native of Spain, Lacunza holds a doctor honoris causa, conferred in 2012 by the Universidad Autónoma de Chiriquí in recognition of “his capacity to mediate in national conflicts.”
