Witness interview - William Joseph Cardinal Levada

March 27, 2010
The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, handling matters of faith, doctrine, theology and the interpretation of Scripture, is one of the most important departments of the Vatican. One of its most illustrious prefects was Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, who headed the dicastery for 24 years prior to his election as Pope in 2005. He was succeeded by the current prefect, American Cardinal William J. Levada, former Archbishop of San Francisco. In this exclusive interview granted to Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB and Salt + Light Television during the Cardinal’s visit to Ottawa in March 2010, Cardinal Levada discusses some of the major issues and challenges facing the Church today: the spread of the Catholic faith, the Holy Father’s outreach to the Anglican Communion, the efforts to reach out to Catholics who have not fully accepted the Second Vatican Council, and the delicate work of the dicastery in dealing with sexual abuse.
