The Roman Forumís Summer Symposium in Gardone Riviera, Italy this past July was a monumental success. (See report and video log.)  Featuring a wide range of Catholic writers and thinkers from all over Europe and the United States, the aim of the Summer Symposium was to address the basic choice being forced upon contemporary Catholics today: Either we accept the dominant pluralist political, social and economic system, or we reaffirm loyalty to a classical and Christian vision of man and society that clashes profoundly with it.


The lecturers explored the origins of the current system and the ways in which classical and Christian political, social, and economic concepts contradict it, asking such basic questions as: How is it that many believers have been falsely convinced that the pluralist system fulfills the Catholic vision? What can be done to drive home the truth that pluralism is an attack on both Faith and Reason and a recipe for the triumph of the will in public and private life? What part does the authentic Catholic press play in all this? The Catholic family? Law, economics, the liturgical life of the Church, etc.


Each talk is available for $7 on a standard CD.  The entire Symposium is available on two MP3 CDs for $30. (An MP3 CD is a compact disc that contains digital audio in the MP3 file format. Recordings can be played on any DVD player, your computer and MP3 players in more recent home and auto CD exchangers.) Allow two weeks for delivery.
