    • The Last Homily: Conversations with Fr. Arne Panula

      The Last Homily captures with poignant authenticity the dying thoughts of a brilliant priest who dedicated his life to bringing others to God: Fr. Arne Panula, of Washington DC's fabled Catholic Information Center. Recorded with Fr. Arne's permission during his months in hospice care, his exchanges with noted author Mary Eberstadt expound on the Church and history, art and music, books and ideas, as well as on more immediate questions about how the faithful should live, how they should work, and how they can best help to build the Kingdom on earth. Via this gift to posterity, Fr. Arne's spiritual guidance is no longer limited to those who knew him, but extends to generations of the present and future. (learn more)
