Dr. Catherine A. Deavel joined us today. She is an Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN. Providentially, she was my first professor of philosophy, and among many things, introducing me to Humanae Vitae. Dr. Deavel has a really remarkable gift in teaching young college students. We spoke about the college student of today, how “feeling” has taken pride of place over “thinking” in society, and her work to acquaint her students with the great thinkers in the Church, thereby giving the students a freedom to think as well. Specifically, we spoke about how this translates into obligations to family, and the very pressing issue of euthanasia. Dr. Deavel was illuminating!
