Behind the Headlines: the Catholic Herald’s weekly podcast, is a running conversation with the people who make the news and the people who bring the news to you, with the people who shape opinion and with the people who do the Church’s work — including her work of thinking — in every area of endeavour. On this podcast, we’ll put together the stories of the week, and we’ll take them apart. We’ll discuss issues and affairs, and we’ll delve into the big questions with the people who are making culture from the inside, out. Faithful, fearless, and fun: That’s how we bill and tag the magazine, and that’s what we promise to be, each week, with you.
This week on the podcast, Fr John Paul Walker OP explores the life and legacy of soon-to-be-Blessed Fr Michael McGivney, the founder of the Knights of Columbus. Christopher Wells of Vatican News talks about several of the other fascinating figures, whose sainthood causes advanced on Wednesday. The Rome Bureau Chief for Crux, Ines San Martin, fills us in on what’s doing where she is – in her native Argentina – and discusses the insights her temporary “outside in” view of Rome has given her.Listen to “EPISODE 007 “The Heroes We Need”” on Spreaker.
