These are America’s Heroes?

Every four years, the world gathers to celebrate the joy of the Olympics. For 16 days, the world pauses. We all feel great pride for our home countries and cheer them on to Olympic Gold.

The Acts We Perform; the People We Become

From the 1950’s through the late 1970’s Karol Wojtyla (Pope John Paul II) was a professor of moral philosophy at the Catholic University of Lublin in Poland, specializing in sexual ethics and what we call today “marriage and family life.” He produced two important books touching on these matters, The Acting Person, a rigorously philosophical exploration of Christian anthropology, and […]
