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.

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.
