For two decades, Maggie Gallagher was a leading voice writing
about the importance of permanent, monogamous marriage to society.
At first, that included pointing out the problems with divorce,
feminism and single parenthood. Then as same-sex marriage became
the predominant issue, Gallagher became the public face of the
movement against it.
A few years after the Supreme Court made gay marriage legal across the 50 states, Gallagher switched gears when Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco asked her to be Executive Director of the Benedict XVI Institute for Sacred Music and Divine Worship, which he founded in 2013. She says that to avoid despair, we have to build beautiful things.
