Great weekend interview in the WSJ can be found here.  William McGurn interviews co-founder and president of the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty, the Rev. Robert A. Sirico who has another, equally demanding ministry: preaching the virtues of economic freedom.

The Acton Institute is a think-tank whose mission is to promote a free and virtuous society characterized by individual liberty and sustained by religious principles.

“The answer isn’t to head to the hills,” Father Sirico says. “The answer is a simultaneous liberality in our economy and vigor in our moral stances.”
