- January 2011 -

Imagine that you could ask the pope any question you wished. What would you ask? Veteran journalist and biographer of Pope Benedict XVI Peter Seewald received just that opportunity when he was granted an unprecedented book-length interview with the pope. Light of the World: The Pope, the Church, and the Signs of the Times (Ignatius 2010) is a uniquely candid and wide-ranging discussion on all issues related to the Church such as the danger of moral relativism, the role of the papacy, the effects of Vatican II, climate change and Islam. Please join us on Wednesday, January 26, at 5 pm EST for a discussion of this new book with Father Joseph Fessio. Father Fessio is the Editor-in-Chief of Ignatius Press, as well as a former student and long-time personal friend of Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI. You can submit your questions in advance for Father Fessio online.
