ozanam-koderGiven the profound questions Pope Francis is raising about our society it might be very instructive to take a few minutes to watch a series of videos in which Dr. Raymond Sickinger, Ph.D. leads discussion of a paper by Dr. David L. Gregory, Ph.D., entitled “Antoine Frederic Ozanam: Building the Good Society.

The video covers many topics rich in the Vincentian and Catholic traditions. Several professors from Niagara University participated as panelists.

This hour-long panel discussion, held during Vincentian Week, September 2009, was meant to acquaint faculty with the richness of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition.
