Topic One – Sports Faith International: Hall of Fame Induction
The legendary George Halas, the founder of the Chicago Bears and the coach for forty years, referred to God as the Divine Coach. His family described him as a man who didn’t always talk about his faith but lived it very strongly. Today his grandson follows in his traditions and as a board member of the Bears ensures the great traditions of faith and sportsmanship, initiated by George Halas, continues to flourish as part of the very essence of the Bears organization. Pat McCaskey is co-owner of the Bears and Founder & Chairman of Sports Faith International. He is here to tell us about this years’ Sports Faith Hall of Fame inductees and the new Catholic High School Hall of Fame.
Topic Two – Pope Attacked / John Paul II and Pius XII Declared “Venerable”
Our Sunday Visitor’s Catholic Almanac remains the only annual, comprehensive guide to the Catholic Church. It is the essential one-volume reference work for researchers, homilists, writers, media professionals, students, and teachers. Published for more than one hundred years, this is a proven resource that offers solid Catholic teaching and information. Its in-depth index makes finding specific, exact information easy. Editor Matthew Bunson is here to look at the 2010 Catholic Almanac as well as some stories from while we were away, including the attack on Pope Benedict XVI, and the declarations of Pope John Paul the Great and Pope Pius XII as venerable.
