Great SHOT

Jesuit John Staudenmaier, recipient of the Leonardo da Vinci Medal by the Society for the History of Technology, an

international organization dedicated to the historical study of technology and how it relates to politics, economics, the environment, science and the arts, received a written question over a decade ago.
“Sooner or later you owe it to your secular friends and colleagues to say where and how faith makes a real difference in how we and you think.  Surely it must, or you would in effect be encouraging a trivialization of faith. Isn't there just a faint conspiracy (between you and your secular friends) to glide over that rock bottom distinction?”
Fr. Staudenmaier used his talk last November at his reception of the medal to answer that question. His talk is available as a podcast; access it at this UDMcast page.
Wiki-image of Leonardo DaVinci is in the public domain in the U.S.
