In this talk, “On Faith and Reason”, Very Rev. Peter Armenio stresses the urgency with which today’s burning issues (marriage, children, life, evolution, suffering, death, etc.) require not only an appeal to supernatural authority but also to science and nature.

Fr Armenio addresses specific issues and situations confronting everyday life and how lay people in the middle of the world are often looked to by those around them (at home, work, school, etc.) “to be able to articulate these burning issues…” and “to point out with humility, with understanding, with mercy, that faith seeks understanding and that moral truth gives joy and gives fulfillment, gives freedom, makes for happier families, better society, and greater meaning in life.”

This podcast is a recording of a talk delivered by Fr Peter Armenio at a recent event in Chicago. Fr Armenio is the Vicar of Opus Dei for the Midwest in the United States and Theological Advisor to the St. Josemaria Institute.
