The Gospel of Life and the New Evangelization

In Rome at the Vatican this weekend the Holy See is presenting a “Day Celebrating Evangelium Vitae,” Pope John Paul II’s 1995 encyclical on life issues.  UFL board member Frank Beckwith is one of the presenters at a panel called “The Gospel of Life and the New Evangelization.”  In an interview with Vatican Radio Beckwith describes his presentation:

“The case that I make,” Beckwith says, “is that even those who are hostile to a culture of life, down deep, assume or rely on understandings of the human person that we can use to show them that ultimately their own view is incorrect.”

Also presenting are Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura and Robert Royal, President of the Faith and Reason Institute and Graduate Dean at the Catholic Distance University.


Robert Gotcher is a dogmatic and moral theologian and long-time member of UFL who received his Ph.D. from Marquette University. He and his wife, Kathy, are raising their seven children in Franklin, Wisconsin.
