There are advantages to educating priests and lay ecclesial ministers together and in a place of research and contemplation, in a university that is international, Catholic, and engaged in ecumenical and interfaith dialogue.  This lecture explores how such a school can remain in touch with the actual practice of Catholics as well as the sources of the authoritative tradition.
