Christian Persecution and Vatican Review (Dec. 28)

As the new year fast approaches we take a look back at 2019, a year of more religious persecution — especially of Christians — across the globe. Thomas Farr, a leading authority on international religious freedom, explains the situation. We are also joined by Edward Pentin, the Register’s Rome correspondent, for a Vatican year-end review.

USCCB Meeting, Pro-Life Gains (Nov. 21)

The U.S. Bishops met this week for their annual fall meeting under the shadow of the scandal surrounding the Vatican’s report on Theodore McCarrick. What did the bishops say, and what lies ahead for the Church in the United States? We talk to Catholic News Agency DC editor Ed Condon. And then, the 2020 election brought hard-fought gains for the pro-life movement in Congress. We hear from Lauretta Brown, Register staff writer, for what the pro-life cause can expect in 2021.

The McCarrick Report (Nov. 14)

The long-awaited McCarrick Report was published this week, documenting how the one-time archbishop of Washington and a cardinal survived for so long despite the rumors, accusations and lies. This week on Register Radio, we talk to Register Rome correspondent Edward Pentin about the report. And then, we are joined by Ave Maria Radio’s Al Kresta to discuss the fallout from the report and what needs to happen next.
