Ten Things that Caught My Eye Today (June 20, 2017)

1.A beautiful life on this earth ended yesterday. George Weigel wrote about Fr. Arne Panula here at Easter time.

2. An interview with Robert P. George by my friend Matthew Bunson.

3. Rabbi Jonathan Sacks’ recent TED Talk on facing the future together without fear.

4. A physician-assisted suicide assessment by Richard Doerflinger.

5. The new Index of Culture and Opportunity from the Heritage Foundation.

By the way, I gave a shout-out to Jennifer Marshall and the vision she’s been able to drive in her part of Heritage in this piece on Catholics and evangelicals working together for good.

6. Christina Hoff Sommers on a silly controversy over John McEnroe in the latest episode of her Factual Feminist series: 

7. I’m a Pediatrician. How Transgender Ideology Has Infiltrated My Field and Produced Large-Scale Child Abuse.

8. Miami doctor Grazie Christie on Charlie Gard and why government shouldn’t be deciding who lives and dies.

9. On Jane Austen and prudence.

10. Couple to adopt 7 siblings separated by foster families.

Also …

A year after World Youth Day, a D.C. event inspired by it this weekend at the terrific John Paul II Shrine. 

On contagious conversion and Kate O’Beirne’s Arlington National Cemetery burial, neighbors to John Foster Dulles.

And on a recent confab in Orlando with Catholic leaders.

More about that meeting in my syndicated column this week.
