Works

Religion

The Covenant is not a contract in which God and human beings agree to provide particular goods and services for each other. It is not something that people have to do to create a relationship with God. God has already made it possible.

Politics

Peace making is the creative and positive quest for the well-being of humankind and the planet on which people live.

Views

People are called to love God not only with their hearts, but also with their minds. All things should be considered through the light of reason. In order to do that, it is necessary to become aware of different points of view and be able to develop critical thinking in relation to any political or social problem.

Membership

Served with United States Army, 1943-1945.
