The CTSA prays for member Thomas L. Schubeck, S.J. who died yesterday, October 13, 2022.

Tom, Professor Emeritus, Department of Theology and Religious Studies, at John Carroll University's  focused his work in the area of social ethics, specializing in the ethics of Latin American Liberation Theology and the relationship of love to justice in social ethics, as well as the theological/psychological dimensions of hope.  He worked and wrote on pastoral work in prison ministry and racial justice (JCU website; see

May Tom, and the souls of all the faithful departed,
through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

    Like so many others, I always enjoyed meeting Tom at our meetings and other times, and appreciated both his many kindnesses, his low-key demeanor, and his scholarly commitments. I remember how, when I first gave a CTSA paper in 1986 or 1987, Tom went out of his way to find me and tell me how much he appreciated the paper - a boost for a newcomer. May he rest in peace! Frank

    Tom has been a friend for many years. He and Dick, my husband were together at JCU in pre-med. He presided over the wedding of our youngest daughter and celebrated his 75th birthday at our home. His sense of humor, his scholarly concerns for restorative justice, his care for so many people for so many years will be treasures of memory for us all. A sad loss to all.

    Tom was always supportive and a gentle man to greet at CTSA meetings. He encouraged me to write and took the time to give an endorsement to a work on social ethics I wrote. I learned from his quiet presence. May he Rest In Peace.
