During this two hour edition of Building A Civilization of Love we took a look at some leading Catholic print and broadcast communicators and see how their gifts and talents are used to spread the good news of the Gospel message through the New Evangelization spoken so eloquently by Pope John Paul II during his Papacy.
The program began with a replay of an exclusive interview with Father Federico Lombardi, Head of the Holy See Press Office, Head of Vatican Radio and Television http://www.radiovaticana.org, and Spokesman for Pope Benedict XVI, recorded on location in May of 2008, at a Catholic Media Conference with over 400 Catholic communicators from North America in attendance held at the Sheraton Centre Hotel in Toronto.
Following the interview with Father Federico Lombardi, we had another Radio Teopoli AM530 exclusive interview featuring Father Thomas Rosica, President and CEO of Salt and Light Media Foundation www.saltandlighttv.org/.
The On-line Internet and world wide web has become an immensely popular and important source of news and information that people of faith won't get anywhere else. In our Radio Teopoli AM530 studios we had Steve Jalsevac, the Co-founder and Managing Director of lifesitenews.com, Canada's leading On-line source of pro-life news and information that has become a major source of quoted news information for many other news outlets around the entire globe.
Talking about the world wide web one of the world's most popular spiritual websites is http://www.spiritdaily.com/. We featured part of another Radio Teopoli AM530 exclusive interview recorded Wednesday morning via telephone from Florida with Michael Brown, Author and Founder of Spiritdaily.com who will hold his first retreat in Canada, Special Times, Special Protection, on Saturday June 13, 2009, in the Doubletree Hotel at 655 Dixon Road in Toronto near the airport.
Jim O'leary the new Publisher and Editor of The Catholic Register http://www.catholicregister.org/, Canada's oldest weekly Catholic newspaper shared his insightful views after more than thirty years of journalism experience in all major facets of the mainstream press. Following the interview with Jim O'leary we also featured an interview with Carolyn Girard, Reporter/Editor of Youth Speak News, for The Catholic Register in which she discussed the importance of World Communications Day and the Internship program offered by The Catholic Register to young aspiring Catholic Journalists and some tips on how to get your event published in The Catholic Register.
Our program dedicated to World Communications Day featured an interview with Neil MacCarthy, Director of Communications and Public Relations, for the Archdiocese of Toronto, http://www.archtoronto.org/ discussing his role as head of a very busy Office of Communications in Canada's media capital with close to two million Catholics calling the City of Toronto home.
Finally, to end off the "Month of Mary", Edson Bosetti was in the Radio Teopoli studios LIVE and told us all about his devotion to Mary Undoer of Knots www.maryundoerofknots.com/, with testimonials, history, and other information on how to get more familiar with this devotion.
