Kresta in the Afternoon

15 Sep

SEPTEMBER 15, 2010 — I had the honor of being the final guest on Kresta in the Afternoon yesterday. The daily program is produced byAve Maria Radio and heard around the world on EWTN Radio and Sirius/XM Satellite Radio.

Host Al Kresta asked me about the week-long seminar for journalists from around the world I attended in Rome last week, from Sept. 6-12. I was among 27 journalists from eight nations who attended The Church Up Close: Covering Catholicism in the Age of Benedict XVI, organized by the School of Church at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross.

My three blog posts (1, 2, 3) about the seminar have been read by people from around the world. Al asked me about why secular journalists don’t understand religion. We also delved into the various sessions the seminar offered, including a visit to the Vatican Press Office, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and dozens of seminars over the course of the week.

    Wow, great interview! I am so glad we had the chance to participate to that seminar. And also to meet you and the other journalists. Hope it’s only the first time!

    Blessing from Canada!
