Best of “Catholic Connection” with Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse and Fr. Carter Griffin.



Segment 1 – Intro and News


Segment 2 & 3 – Michigan’s Prop 3 Sterilizes Kids Without Parental Notification
“Michigan’s Proposal 3 – an amendment to the state’s constitution – is about far more than unlimited access to abortion,” said Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. “It would also allow clinics to dispense puberty-blocking drugs to minors as a first step toward ‘gender reassignment’ surgery, without parental knowledge or consent.”  Dr. Morse joins us today.  (Originally aired October 19, 2022)

Jennifer Roback Morse, Ph.D. is the founder and President of the Ruth Institute — a project of the National Organization for Marriage — which seeks to promote life-long married love to college students by creating an intellectual and social climate favorable to marriage. She is also the Senior Research Fellow in Economics at the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty.




Segment 4 – Forming Fathers: Seminary Wisdom for Every Priest
Forming Fathers: Seminary Wisdom for Every Priest seeks to remind priests of the lessons so greatly needed to fulfill their calling faithfully. Originally delivered by Fr. Carter Griffin as talks to seminarians, this series of short, inspiring vignettes can help rekindle a priest’s first love and awaken the aspirations that brought him into the seminary in the first place. Much of what is contained in these pages is also applicable to Catholic laymen, themselves called to the virtues of Christian manhood, the responsibilities of discipleship, and the dignity of spiritual fatherhood.”  (Originally aired September 8, 2022)

Fr. Carter Griffin is a priest of the Archdiocese of Washington. A graduate of Princeton University and a former line officer in the United States Navy, he obtained his doctorate in theology from the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome. After serving at St. Peter’s parish on Capitol Hill, in 2011 he was assigned to the newly-established St. John Paul II Seminary in Washington, DC, where he now serves as Rector.
