Telecast Previews Pope’s Visit


Supreme Knight Carl Anderson hosts panel of papal experts on program airing April 13.

The Knights of Columbus has announced that it is sponsoring a nationally-broadcast television discussion program previewing Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to the United States.

The telecast features a lively discussion of Benedict's three eventful years as Pope, his long career as a renowned theologian, and a look at the themes he is likely to stress during his trip to America. The show is entitled A Journey of Hope.

The panel of experts featured in the program includes:

  • Carl Anderson, supreme knight, a member or consultor to five pontifical councils, and a former member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights;

  • Cardinal John Foley, who served for many years as the president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications at the Vatican;

  • David Schindler, dean of the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family in Washington, D.C., and editor of Communio, a journal co-founded by then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger;

  • Dominican Father Peter Cameron, editor of the Catholic periodical Magnificat, and author of the book Benedictus, which provides the reader with daily meditations from the voluminous writings of Pope Benedict XVI; and

  • Professor Helen Alvaré, who teaches family law at Columbus School of Law at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.

The program will air on a variety of Catholic television outlets, including EWTN, the Catholic cable network, and local and regional Catholic cable channels and over-the-air Catholic programs.  A partial listing is available below.
