What are the big ideas that face the Catholic Church? How can young people engage with our modern Church? Where can we start when searching for the truth? Is there any hope for people who believe in God? In this interview with Xt3.com, Professor Hayden Ramsay shares an insight into the big ideas facing the modern Catholic Church, and challenges us during these last days of Lent to think about our intellect, and to stop and think about some of the big questions that face society today.
