Renewal, Revival, Variety, and Unity with Patrick Reilly: The Kolbecast Episode 157

AMDG. Patrick Reilly of the Cardinal Newman Society rejoins us to discuss renewal and reform in Catholic education during the 30th anniversary year of the Newman Guide.  He describes the aspects of competition and emulation he sees in Catholic schools, examples of God’s providence at work, and the missing foundation in most secular education.  He also shares with enthusiasm the ideas that everything in nature has a cyclical effect and the four pillars of his taskforce for Eucharistic education: literacy, liturgy, devotion, and living.  Listen through the end for pragmatic thoughts on dual enrollment and demonstrating college readiness.
