By showing what happens in individual trials of all sorts, the book covers a great deal of social and ecclesiastical and political history.

My hope, though, is that the story of a group of women who dared to change the world–even with flawed methods–shines through. As I say in the book, “The history of race, gender, and religion in America is a complicated on that has kept scholars busy for years. . . . Drexel and the SBS saw things more simply. They witnessed inequality and prejudice and sought to use their Catholic faith to expand the definition of who got to be an American. It was other people who made it complicated.”

My overarching aim as a moral theologian and war/peace ethicist is to find ways of bridging these divides and work for the common good. This commitment aligns with my conviction: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God” (Mt 5:9).

We were pleased to chat with Marial Corona about her research on John Newman’s life and contributions to theological and philosophical study, which is the focus of her book The Philosophy of John Henry Newman and Pragmatism. Corona completed her Master’s thesis on Newman’s educational ideas during her time at Notre Dame University (2003-2009). Corona is an adjunct professor for the Institute of Pastoral Studies at Loyola University Chicago.

What surprised me most, I think, was to see how early Ratzinger’s mature theological vision emerged—at least in regards to Scripture and Revelation. He wrote his Habilitationsschrift on Bonaventure in his late 20s and, as far as I can tell, never fundamentally revised the model of Scripture and Revelation he discovered there. I’m in my mid-40s now and I don’t think I’ve yet developed such a consistent theological “style.”

To delve into great works of dramatic literature—works of Shakespeare, Shaw, Noel Coward, Arthur Miller—develops an understanding of what makes communication clear, economical, and effective.

It is hard not to feel demoralized, disempowered, or skeptical about the world today. Who doesn’t want things to be better or work towards improving them? But the path to a new and better reality cannot be one of avoidance.

The faith is alive in the first generation immigrants. They believe deeply in Jesus Christ and his blessed mother Mary. They want to see the power of God manifested in their families.
