Cardinal Turkson discusses meaning of 'vocation to agriculture'

Catholics, and not just farmers, should consider "what could be the meaning of a vocation to agriculture," said the president of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.

In remarks prepared for delivery Wednesday as part of a conference in St. Paul called "Faith, Food & the Environment: The Vocation of the Agricultural Leader," Ghanaian Cardinal Peter Turkson said Jesus expected those who listened to him to know about agriculture or at least be exposed to it.

Business leaders explore ways to carry Catholic values to the office

Venture capitalist Frank Hanna believes that just because he's a Catholic business owner, his faith and values don't have to be checked at the office door.
