Fr. Robert Spitzer


Fr. Spitzer is the kind of guy you’d put on Larry King Live when guys like Stephen Hawking venture outside their field of expertise (science) and start saying crazy things about the need for God. Seriously, that’s what happened.

Fr. Spitzer is such a great spokesman for the intellectual weight of the Catholic Faith within the scientific world because he’s a well-respected expert in both. And he does a great job (check out his Magis Center) of showing how both faith and reason converge to tell the richest, most satisfying Story of Us.

I’m posting this as a part of Support a Catholic Speaker month. Something I started back in 2009 and now Brandon Vogt has so kindly taken up, run with and made even better (<- check it out it’s awesome!).

A little more on Fr. Spitzer:

Fr. Spitzer is a Catholic Priest in the Jesuit order, and is currently the President of the Magis Center of Reason and Faith ( and the Spitzer Center ( The Magis Center produces documentaries, books, high school curricula, college courses, adult-education curricula, and new media materials to show the close connection between faith and reason in contemporary astrophysics, philosophy, and historical study of the New Testament.

Such an important task in our current day. Please support his work and share his wisdom.

*sigh* at Deepak Chopra claiming to have read Hawking’s and Mlodinow’s book three times and then saying, “this book validates everything [I believe]. The only difference between me and [the authors] is that this “nothingness” is not an empty void. It’s the ‘womb of creation.'”

In other words, Deepak is convinced that “nothing” really is “something.” Such is the New Age.

Deepak is really great at helping people come to less of an understanding about something.

We LOVE Fr. Spitzer in this area. He is sharp, witty, and brilliant. He is also full of ENERGY. If you hear him speak live, his energy fills the room and fires everyone up for Christ. His newest book “the !0 Universal life Principles” is excellent!
