    Mind, Heart, and Soul: Intellectuals and the Path to Rome

    Robert P. George and R. J. Snell have co-authored their most recent publication, Mind, Heart, and Soul: Intellectuals and the Path to Rome. Pre-order your copy today!

    In a series of fascinating interviews, the authors offer the stories of sixteen converts, each a public intellectual or leading voice in their respective fields, and each making a significant contribution to the life of the Church. 

    Included are interviews with a bishop, a leading theologian and priest, a member of the International Theological Commission, a former megachurch pastor, a prominent pro-life scholar, professors from Harvard and other universities, as well as journalists and writers, novelists and scholars. Each are interviewed by another leading scholar, many of whom are themselves converts and familiar with the hesitations, anxieties, discoveries, and hopes of those who discover the Faith. 

    These conversion stories remind us that the Catholic Church retains her vitality, able to provide answers and reasons for hope to new generations of believers, always sustained by the Holy Spirit. It is all too-easy to become discouraged in our day and age, but God never fails to call people to Himself, as evidenced by these remarkable stories. 


    #BigFertility Showing in Princeton

    Please join us for a screening of #BigFertility: It’s All About the Money. The showing will take place on Sunday, September 16 at 7:30 p.m. at the Princeton Garden Theatre. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased here

    This movie is the latest documentary by the Center for Bioethics and Culture. It documents the story of Kelly, a three-time surrogate who finds herself in devastating financial circumstances. As she nearly dies from what she believes to have been an act of altruism, Kelly learns the truth about an industry marketed to people especially vulnerable to financial need. 

    Additionally, Jennifer Lahl—the film’s writer, director and producer—will be coming all the way from California to have a Q&A with us at the screening. Find more of her work here. Ms. Lahl is knowledgeable about the fertility industry and extremely informative. We highly recommend coming to hear her first-hand perspective and to ask her any questions you may have on this topic.

    We hope you will join us in supporting this film and learning more about the growing fertility industry.
