“I should not like to be too harsh on this commission’s labors. It numbered a certain number of genuine scholars and more than one experienced and judicious pastor. Under different circumstances, they might have accomplished excellent work. Unfortunately, on the one hand, a deadly error in judgment placed the official leadership of this committee in the hands of a man who—though generous and brave—was not very knowledgeable: Cardinal Larcaro. He was utterly incapable of resisting the maneuvers of the mealy-mouthed scoundrel that the Neapolitan Vincentian, Annibale, a man as bereft of culture as he was of basic honesty, soon revealed himself to be.”

iFACTS, the Institute for Advancing Catholic Thought & Studies, offers a college-level curriculum to students across the country. Taught by Chad-Michael Cunningham, classes will prove to be rigorous and insightful, hoping to reveal the richness and depth of the Catholic Faith. iFACTS is based in Nashville, TN and is taught regularly on the campus of Vanderbilt University as part of the Vanderbilt Catholic campus ministry.

Join Chad-Michael, the Newman Connection, and Vanderbilt Catholic every Wednesday as we roll out a curriculum meant to instruct us in our faith so that ultimately we may live our faith. These courses will challenge and inform, perplex and astound minds and souls that are thirsting to encounter the Beauty and Truth that is Jesus Christ and His Church.

This is a brilliant initiative by the Newman Connection, which is helping to make sure our young Catholics don’t lose their faith when they go to college.
