Who: Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio - Author, Speaker and EWTN personality.
What: A one hour presentation followed by an open Q&A.
"Here once more we see the need for an engaged, articulate and well-formed Catholic laity endowed with a strong critical sense vis-à-vis the dominant culture and with the courage to counter a reductive secularism which would delegitimize the Church’s participation in public debate about the issues which are determining the future of American society. The preparation of committed lay leaders and the presentation of a convincing articulation of the Christian vision of man and society remain a primary task of the Church in your country; as essential components of the new evangelization, these concerns must shape the vision and goals of catechetical programs at every level."
As we approach the national election we should stop and ask ourselves some very important questions. Questions such as...
What does it mean to vote our Catholic conscience?
How do we properly form our conscience in the first place?
What guidelines do we follow when deciding between the candidates?
Is there a priority priority of issues? Do we apply differing moral "weight" to them?
How do we vet the candidates on theses issues in regards Catholic teaching?
To help us answer these tough questions and more, Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio will deliver a live presentation on October 17th, 2012 at 7 PM CST. After his talk, there will be an opportunity for Q&A through email and those participating in the chat box.
We can't tell you who to vote for, but, we can help you to form and vote your Catholic conscience!

Raised in Italian/Irish neighborhood in Providence, RI, Marcellino D’Ambrosio never thought about being anything else but Catholic. But like many teens, his faith was the last place he looked for fulfillment. Following in the footsteps of his parents, both professional performers, Marcellino set his sights on a career in mu- sic, playing bass guitar in several professional rock bands by the time he was 16.
At that time he encountered a group of Catholics whose Christian life was an exciting adventure, an adventure worth living for. So he laid his bass guitar aside and embarked on a road that led to a Ph.D. in historical theology from the Catholic University of America where his dissertation director was the renowned Jesuit theologian, Avery Cardinal Dulles.
Throughout his academic career at Loyola and the University of Dallas, Dr. D’Ambrosio remained deeply involved in pastoral work, especially teen evangelization and Hispanic ministry,assuring that his teaching remained exceptionally relevant to the challenges of everyday life.
As the father of five and a business owner, Dr. D’Ambrosio brings to his teaching a practical, down-to-earth perspective that makes his words easy to understand and put into practice. His writing has been published in Our Sunday Visitor and in numerous national and international publications, internet portals and blogs. He is a New York Times best-selling author with his Guide to the Passion: 100 Questions about the Passion of the Christ numbered among the fastest-selling Catholic books of all time with over a million copies sold in less than three months. He often appears on various Catholic TV and radio networks where he is also known as “Dr. Italy” and has also been called upon to serve as an expert commentator on religious issues on Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera At Large and Bill O'Reilly's radio show.
In 2001 Dr. D’Ambrosio left his position at the University of Dallas to develop the work of Crossroads Productions, the apostolate of Catholic renewal and evangelization that he co-founded twenty years ago. He, his wife Susan, and their five children, reside just outside of Dallas, TX.
