Today’s topics: The Station Churches of Rome and Canonizations of Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII
Summary of today’s show: George Weigel is known as the official biographer of Pope John Paul II, but he recently completed a new project with his son, Steven, and Elizabeth Lev on the Station Churches of Rome. The station churches are a series of churches in the city of Rome that pilgrims visit each day of Lent and Holy Week, one for each day. They also discuss George’s expert view on the twin canonizations of Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII, why the two papacies are linked and what set them apart.
