    “Truth enlightens man’s intelligence and shapes his freedom.” 

    —Pope St. John Paul II, Veritatis Splendor

    The Mission of the Veritas Center for Ethics in Public Life

    The Veritas Center for Ethics in Public Life exists to bring faithful Catholic scholarly reflection to bear on the most pressing ethical questions in contemporary culture—questions of marriage and sexuality, war and peace, life and death, as well as economic and social justice.

    Through research, writing, and academic conferences, the Veritas Center seeks to combat what Pope Benedict XVI described as “the dictatorship of relativism,” promoting the natural moral law, illuminated by the light of faith, in order to defend both human freedom and dignity in the public square.

    Who would not want to go to that party? Why would anyone disdain to join in a celebration so positively glorious? “Earth’s crammed with heaven,” Elizabeth Barrett Browning tells us. “And every common bush afire with God.” All because the Lord of the universe elected to walk among us, becoming one of us.

    Too often, people associate well-deserved criticism of Corporate America with leftism and think that it’s always conservatives who instinctively rally to its support no matter what. The reality is quite different.
