Kresta in the Afternoon

11 May

MAY 11, 2009 — I had the honor of being the final guest on Kresta in the Afternoon this afternoon live (via Skype) from Amman, Jordan. The daily program is produced by Ave Maria Radio and heard around the world on EWTN Radio and Sirius/XM Satellite Radio.

Host Al Kresta asked me about my time traveling with Pope Benedict XVI during his pastoral visit to Jordan. My four blog posts (1, 2, 3, 4) about the visit have been read by people from around the world. Al asked me about how well the Pope’s visit has been received among the predominantly Muslim nation. We also talked about the cultural differences between Jordan and the United States.
