It is mandatory that every graduating student of the University of St. Joseph in Macau must go through a thesis defence. Without exception, our three graduating student brothers pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Christian Studies had to encounter this. Bro. Cesar Lino de Sousa Ximenes, O.P., Bro. Agostinho Mendoca, O.P. and Bro. Innocent Han Zaw Htun, O.P. successfully defended their theses on 19, 20 and 21 June 2024, respectively. The thesis title of Bro. Cesar is ” RECONCILIATION AS A WAY OF MISSION.” Bro. Agostinho’s thesis is titled ” ARISTOTLE AND AQUINAS ON HAPPINESS: A COMPARISON OF NICOMACHEAN ETHICS I & X AND SUMMA THEOLOGIAE 1A2AE QUESTIONS 1-5″ and from Bro. Innocent, ” DEVELOPING A CATHOLIC THEOLOGY OF SUFFERING IN THE CONTEXT OF BURMESE THERAVADA BUDDHISM.” May God continue His blessing for their future ministry!
