Catholics serving our country

Catholics serving our country

The Good Catholic Life is marking the Independence Day weekend with shows highlighting the service given to our nation by our priests and others who have served in the Armed Forces.

Play

Today we bring you an encore presentation of a show that originally aired on Memorial Day, 2012. We hear from a number of different voices, including the words of Fr. Paul Hurley, serving with the 101st Airborne Division; Beirne Lovely, archdiocesan general counsel who was a young Marine lieutenant during the Vietnam War; and Fr. Stephen Rock, pastor of St. Agnes in Reading who was a Navy chaplain for 34 years. Scot also talks to Mary Doorley and Michelle Huntley about a video they helped produce highlighting the service of the priests sent by the Archdiocese of Boston to serve as US military chaplains over the years and how the annual Catholic Appeal supports that ministry to servicemembers all over the world.

Complete shownotes may be found on the original airdate’s show page.
