Assistant Professor of Systematic Theology
Lisa Lickona comes to Saint Bernard’s after serving for eight years as Editor for Saints at Magnificat, where she researched and wrote daily on the lives of the saints. She has written and spoken widely on issues in theological anthropology and culture from the perspective afforded by Pope John Paul II’s theology of the body and his “new feminism.” Her most recent work includes co-editing The Relevance of the Stars: Christ, Culture, Destiny by Lorenzo Albacete and a chapter for Clerical Sexual Misconduct II: A Foundational Conversation. She has published essays in Humanum, Catholic Social Science Review, and Ave Maria Law Review. Lisa earned her B.A. at the University of Notre Dame and holds the Masters in Theological Studies and Licentiate in Sacred Theology from the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family. She has lived with her family in upstate New York for fifteen years, where for several years she operated a micro-organic farm and organized a local farmers’ market.
