Catholic 540-AM Divine Mercy Radio was honored to broadcast live from St. Michael The Archangel Catholic Church in Cary as the parish hosted “An Evening with Fr. Robert Spitzer, SJ”.

The dinner and presentation allowed invited guests to listen to Fr. Spitzer present his talk “The Four Levels of Happiness”, offering his Catholic perspective based on timeless principles going back to Aristotle - who said that happiness is the one thing we desire in and of itself, everything else is desired for the sake of happiness.

Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J., Ph.D., is the founder and president of the Spitzer Center. A scholar, teacher, author, and seasoned leader, Fr. Spitzer is a pre-eminently a theologian and philosopher. His other fields of expertise, however, include management science, finance, ethics, and physics. Born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1952, Fr. Spitzer entered the Society of Jesus in 1974, was ordained a priest on June 11, 1983, and took final vows April 4, 1992.

In addition to a pre-talk interview with Fr. Spitzer, Catholic 540-AM Divine Mercy Radio hosts Ellen White and Peter K. O’Connell also interviewed the event’s organizer, local Catholic businessman Bob Luddy and St. Michael’s pastor Fr. Michael Burbeck. Many of the guests in attendance were also interviewed a part of the exclusive, live broadcast.

Divine Mercy Radio will soon announce a rebroadcast date for the event which can be heard on Catholic 540-AM and the Divine Mercy Radio app - available to download for free from Google Play and the Apple App Store.
