Every century has its key questions, the driving themes that define its attitude toward God, faith, suffering, reality, and the person of Jesus Christ. Our mission at the Magis Center is to restore, reconstruct, and revitalize belief in: God The transcendent dignity of every human person The significance of virtue The higher levels of happiness, love, and freedom The real presence of Jesus Christ WHY “MAGIS”? Magis (pronounced mah-jis) In Latin, ‘magis’ means “more.” In some contexts it can mean “the even more,” the furthest frontier: frontiers of reason, knowledge, the universe, and reality itself. Magis Center is run by Fr. Robert J. Spitzer, S.J., Ph.D.. Fr. Spitzer is a Catholic Priest in the Jesuit order (Society of Jesus) and is currently the President of the Magis Center and the Spitzer Center. Some highlights of Fr. Spitzer’s professional life: Fr. Spitzer was President of Gonzaga University from 1998 to 2009. While president, he significantly increased the programs and curricula in faith, ethics, service, and leadership, and led the efforts to build 20 new facilities, increased the student population by 75%, and raised more than $200 million for scholarships and capital projects. He has made many TV appearances including: Larry King Live (debating Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow), the Today Show (debating on the topic of active euthanasia), The History Channel in “God and The Universe,” a multiple part PBS series “Closer to the Truth,” and the Hugh Hewitt Show.
