"Catholic Thinkers and Doers" The Task- Choose one of the Catholic Thinkers and/ or Doers from the list below. OR, if you are drawn to one not on the list, check

with the professor first for possible approval. The main requirement for the person of focus is that they are a practicing Catholic (living or deceased). The purpose of this essay is to gain an understanding and perhaps an appreciation for this person, and the impact of their commitment to Catholicism on their life and thinking. Obviously, the length of the paper precludes these from being exhaustive.
