Father David Tracy speaks about his belief that American Catholic religious and intellectual life are strong today and promising for the future. He uses the reflections of John Henry Cardinal Newman to illustrate that different Christian interpretations of Catholicism are possible in the face of different life and cultural experiences, while still maintaining unity within the faith.

This talk was delivered at Sacred Heart University on April 21, 1988 as the first annual Bishop Walter W. Curtis Lecture.
