Who Said This?

Here is a quote from a recent address reported in the Catholic press. Do you know who said it?

“The challenge for Catholic universities is finding a place for Bibles and papal decrees between our telescopes and microscopes…. A Catholic university should be concerned with the formation of its students…. The measure of our success is how our graduates live their daily lives: Do they pray and receive the sacraments; do they love the poor; do they observe the rest of the beatitudes?…. We come to know virtue by seeing it, we learn from virtue by practicing it, we become virtuous when our practice makes it habitual, a part of character.. the particular goals we set for ourselves are illuminated by our character or moral orientation… In our efforts, Aristotle says, ‘Virtue makes us aim at the right mark, and practical wisdom makes us take the right means.'”

Answer forthcoming tomorrow.
