Success and Significance

A Conversation with Rev. Robert A. Sirico, President of the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty

By John David Mann

Rev. Robert Sirico is not your everyday Catholic priest. He quotes Thomas Aquinas and Genesis, to be sure, but in the next moment he’s citing Milton Friedman, Solzhenitsyn and Peter Drucker. Early in his ministry, concerned that insufficient grasp of economic principles left many students of religion poorly equipped to address real-life social issues, Father Sirico and an associate, Kris Alan Mauren, founded the Acton Institute in 1990. The Acton Institute’s mission is “to promote a free, virtuous and humane society,” a charge they pursue “by demonstrating the compatibility of faith, liberty and free economic activity.”
