“A range of Catholic experts look at libertarianism and why it is incompatible with Catholic social teaching. The experts will examine libertarian economic, political and cultural ideas and contrast these with Catholic understandings. The keynote will be given by Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez, Archbishop of Tegucigalpa, Honduras and Chairman of the Council of Cardinals that advises Pope Francis on the universal governance of the Catholic Church.”
