Fr. Jaki Talk

Every once in a while we get the opportunity here at the Casa Santa Maria to have a speaker of note come to enlighten us on a particular subject.  This evening we had the privilege of hearing Fr. Stanley Jaki, a Benedictine priest, theologian and physicist.  He was a Gifford Lecturer and in 1987 received the Templeton Prize.  He has written over 50 books.
Tonight he spoke to us about John Henry Cardinal Newman; a convert to the Catholic Faith through the Oxford movement in the Anglican Church in the 19th century.  There is a lot of talk about Newman in many circles and it was interesting to hear this scholar's take on the subject.
