(A)ccording to Princeton law professor and Catholic Robert P. George on Facebook, another leading academic swam the Tiber!David B. and Clara E. Stern Professor of Philosophy and Professor in the College at the University of Chicago Dr. Candace Vogler was received into the Catholic Church this week. (Laudetur Iesus Christus!)George says (Dr. Vogler) is a “major American intellectual” and is “a scholar of moral philosophy and a leading authority on the thought of John Stuart Mill and Elizabeth Anscombe.” He adds: “She has also written on Aristotle, Kant, and Marx and on many of the substantive issues addressed in the thought of these figures.”George repeated what he wrote when he announced the recent conversion of Harvard law professor Adrian Vermeule: “How the Church, weakened and wounded as she is at this historical moment (with the worst of her wounds being self-inflicted), continues to attract such extraordinary men and women is, to me, well . . . a miracle.”
So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).
