Rev. Sirico In California: Is The People’s Pope An Anti-Capitalist?

Rev. Robert Sirico
Rev. Robert Sirico

[email protected] in Danville, Calif. is pleased to present Fr. Robert Sirico, the President of the Acton Institute, as their guest speaker at the March 11, 2014 breakfast forum. Rev. Sirico will be speaking about Pope Francis and his recent apostolic letter, Evangelii Gaudium, and the issue of poverty.

John Duncan, president of [email protected], says,

After listening to and reading articles by Fr. Sirico on this subject it seems to me that there are two dimensions we must put in balance as we listen to and observe this dynamic new Pope.  They are compassion and self-reliance. When properly balanced compassion does not mean providing endless handouts and self-reliance does not mean letting people flounder on their own when they need a little help.

This is a breakfast event, with a Mass celebrated prior. More information and registration details can be found here.
