Tony Magliano is an internationally syndicated social justice and peace columnist.

In his challenging keynote address "Advancing the Kingdom of God in the 21st Century," Tony clearly explains how prayerful reflection upon the ancient teachings of the Gospel and the modern principles of Catholic social teaching can effectively guide a consistent, logical and life-affirming approach to the moral issues — everything from abortion to war — facing humanity in the 21st century.

Tony's enthusiastic, informative and inspiring presentation has been well received by diocesan gatherings from San Clemente, California, to Baltimore.
