Joan Frawley Desmond and Kathryn Jean Lopez

01/13/2012 Comments (2)

Today’s Register Radio features an interview with National Catholic Register senior editor Joan Frawley Desmond about her time with the Archdiocese of Boston’s Cardinal Sean O’Malley. Naturally, the discussion dealt a great deal with the repercussions of the clergy sexual abuse crisis and the efforts undertaken by Cardinal O’Malley to rebuild trust and the Church in Boston. To learn what insights Desmond took from her interview with Cardinal O’Malley, listen to the show.

In our second half, National Review Online editor and National Catholic Register columnist Kathryn Jean Lopez joined us to talk about the GOP Primaries and the rise of Catholic Rick Santorum. Lopez offered her insights as to why Santorum took second place in the Iowa caucuses and discussed whether he offers a different kind of Catholic candidate.

The program can be downloaded and listened to at Register Radio’s webpage or at EWTN Radio.
