Today’s topics: Cardinal Seán on the papacy of Benedict XVI and our next pope
1st segment: Scot Landry welcomed everyone to the show. Today we’re sharing some materials to help us get ready for the conclave in Rome. Scot and George Martell are flying to Rome today in order to begin our live coverage on Tuesday. Today, we’ll share the remarks of Cardinal Seán O’Malley and Msgr. James Moroney from the news conference that was held at the Pastoral Center on February 13 and then Cardinal Seán’s moving homily on the ministry of St. Peter and his reflections on the legacy of Pope Benedict XVI from the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, February 22.
Also tonight, Catholic Faith Essentials starts a new season of study on the topic of this transition in the papacy. Tonight, Bishop Arthur Kennedy will reflect on the teachings and legacy of Pope Benedict XVI and how it has moved the Church to a much deeper understanding of Jesus Christ. That’s 7pm at BostonCatholicLive.com. For more information, go to YearofFaithBoston.org.
Scot also reminded listeners of the many ways that iCatholic Media, of which The Good Catholic Life is a part, is covering this papal transition.
