The Jesuits have approved the merger of Boston College with Weston School of Theology. The plan is to move Weston to the former chancery grounds in the St. William’s Hall that was part of St. John’s Seminary.
Rev. Robert E. Manning, S.J., president of Weston, emphasized the significance of this merger.
“If we move, they [Boston College] would become the center for the study of Roman Catholic theology in the United States,” Manning told the Boston Globe.
God help us. Separately, the BC theology department and Weston were disasters for Catholic thought. Together, who can imagine what baloney they’ll come up with. BC’s president Fr. William Leahy claims as his goal for BC to become “the nation’s Catholic intellectual powerhouse.” Yeah, right.
