St. Rita of Cascia / The Saints As Our Friends


Segment 3 – Pope Francis sits down during an interview with Nora O’Donnell for CBS News
“The last few months have witnessed another flurry of interviews by Pope Francis with secular and Catholic media outlets, the release of several more books on the Pope, and even the publication of a memoir by the Pontiff, under the title, Life, My Story Through History. The media blitz by the Pope — including his freshly aired interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes — is part of a consistent pattern by the modern popes in the use of social communications and media outreach.”  Dr. Bunson joins us.

Dr. Matthew Bunson is vice president and editorial director of EWTN News. For the past 20 years, Dr. Bunson has been active in the area of Catholic social communications and education, including writing, editing, and teaching on a variety of topics related to Church history, the papacy, the saints and Catholic culture. He is a senior fellow of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology and the author or co-author of over 50 books.
