An Excerpt from the Book:

From Cardinal Dulles’ Paper

My hope would be for Catholic agencies, especially colleges and universities, to demonstrate once again that religious faith can give inspiration and direction to the arts and sciences. Although we have much to learn from secular institutions, we should not simply envy or mimic them. We need to strike out on our own and produce samples of Catholic philosophy, jurisprudence, poetry, theater, literature, music, and visual arts. Because of the inroads of secularism, these religiously inspired cultural achievements are almost totally lacking in today’s world, but there is no reason why they cannot be revived.
