Friday's Building A Civilization of Love's first segment featured a world wide Radio Teopoli AM530 exclusive interview via telephone from the UK, featuring Josephine Siedliecka, founder and Editor of the Independent Catholic News which is the first daily on-line Catholic news-wire service in the UK that first broke the story to its on-line audience regarding the miracle necessary for the beatification of the Venerable John Henry Cardinal Newman that was approved by the Cardinals of the Vatican Congregation for the Causes of Saints on Sunday July 21, 2009, to ICN's over 250,000 on-line readers in a story by ICN Corresspondent Peter Jennings entitled "Miracle approved for Newman beaftification."
Following this exclusive segment with ICN founder and Editor Josephine Siedlecka from the UK, we interviewed Father Joseph Occhio, Associate Pastor of St. Benedict Church in Toronto, who told us about St. Benedict whose Feast Day is this Saturday July 11, 2009. Father Occhio is discussed his vocation as a Salesian of Don Bosco during both the year long celebrations throughout the world to mark the 150 years since Don Bosco founded the Society on December 18, 1859, and the Year For Priests that got under way on June 19, 2009, on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Finally we interviewed a future priest in this the Year For Priests. Ricardo Canlas, has been the Program Co-ordinator at St. Jude's Academy of the Arts run by St. Bernadette's Family Resource Centre for the past few years. Ricardo shared some of his experience working with the physically and challenged young adults at St. Jude's Academy of Arts and how he feels about leaving St. Jude's Academy of the Arts in just two days to attend seminary studies after receiving a vocation to become a priest.
