Presentation by Reverend Robert A. Sirico, President of the Acton Institute, Oct. 18

What's New, 2011-10-17

Walsh University will host Reverend Robert A. Sirico, president of the Acton Institute, on Tuesday, October 18, 2011, at 3 p.m. in the Barrette Business and Community Center. Fr. Sirico's presentation, "This I Believe," is an examination of his intellectual and moral journey as a young man. The event is free and open to the public.

The Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty is named after the English historian Lord John Acton, who is best known for his quote "power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Inspired by Lord Acton's work, the Acton Institute organizes seminars aimed at educating religious leaders of all denominations, business executives, entrepreneurs, university professors and academic researchers in economic principles, and in the connection that can exist between virtue and economic thinking. Quite simply, the Institute encourages business executives and entrepreneurs to integrate faith more fully in their professional lives and to give of themselves more unselfishly in their communities. At the same time, the Acton Institute promotes the idea that religious leaders need to embrace the principles of economics as analytical tools in consideration of economic issues that arise in their ministry.
