After reading Paul's paper, four words came to my mind over and over. (Four is a good theological number, I might mention.) It's a lovely paper, it's a thoughtful paper, it's a highly personal paper, and it's an honest paper. And so a lovely, thoughtful, highly personal, and honest paper, in my view, is so Catholic. And it's so Catholic because it highlights what Marc Muskavitch mentioned in our earlier conversation: "R and D." No, that is not "research and development," but rather reflection and discernment, which is what we're constantly doing in Catholic higher education.
