  • Description: Ukrainian riot police charged into groups of anti-government protesters occupying Kiev's Independence square, local television showed. Protesters, some of them armed with clubs and wearing helmets and body armor, were trying to stand their ground surrounded by plumes of smoke from burning tents and piles of tires and wood. Over the last few hours police have been steadily gaining ground in the square, where thousands of protesters still remained hearing speeches from their leaders and singing Ukraine's national anthem. We talk to George Weigel who has been on this story from the beginning.

+  Roman Pilgrimage: The Station Churches

  • Description: The annual Lenten pilgrimage to dozens of Rome’s most striking churches is a sacred tradition dating back almost two millennia, to the earliest days of Christianity. Along this historic spiritual pathway, today’s pilgrims confront the mysteries of the Christian faith through a program of biblical and early Christian readings amplified by some of the greatest art and architecture of western civilization. In a stunning new book, Roman Pilgrimage, George Weigel, art historian Elizabeth Lev, and photographer Stephen Weigel lead readers through this unique religious and aesthetic journey with magnificent photographs and revealing commentaries on the pilgrimage’s liturgies, art, and architecture. George is here with us and also talks to us about the chaos breaking out in Kiev.
