Hadley Arkes received into Catholic Church

Catholic World News - May 03, 2010

Noted pro-life thinker Dr. Hadley Arkes, the Edward N. Ney Professor in American Institutions at Amherst College, has announced that he was received into the Church on April 24.

“The Church has become the main enclave to preserve the sobriety of moral reasoning, natural law reasoning, when the currents of relativism have inundated and corroded the academy and other institutions,” Arkes writes in a brief account of his conversion. “[T]he Church cannot be understood apart from the one who planted the Mustard Seed from which it grew and took its shape and character. Nor can it be detached from the Spirit that managed to preserve the discipline of its moral teachings even through times of trouble and disarray.”
