Featuring Speaker: Joe Phillips. Featuring Panelists: Matt Isaac, Katie Fitzpatrick, and Quan Le.
Co-Sponsored by the Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture, and Mission and Ministry.
“The culture of prosperity deadens us; we are thrilled if the market offers us something new to purchase. In the meantime all those lives stunted for lack of opportunity seem a mere spectacle; they fail to move us.”
- Pope Francis
