The Francis Factor

Next Tuesday, October 1, John Carr will be launching his new Initiative on Catholic Thought and Public Life at Georgetown University with a fascinating discussion: "The Francis Factor." The evening will include the PBS team of Mark Shields and David Brooks, Kim Daniels from the USCCB and Alexia Kelley from FADICA. John Carr is one of the few people I would jump in front of a train to save, and you can bet this will be a lively conversation. You can find more details by clicking here.
