Anderson discusses Pope John Paul II’s Ex Corde Ecclesiae (the Apostolic Constitution on Catholic universities) and the challenges it presents to Catholic law schools. The question for us is this: When Jesus turns to us to ask how we will feed those who come to him, what is our response? 41 We look at what seem to be the hopelessly meager resources at our disposal and compare them to the magnitude of the ministry to which he has directed us.
