State of the Church with Archbishop Collins

March 24, 2009
focusTonight's episode of Catholic Focus explores two controversial topics in a riveting and candid interview with the Archbishop of Toronto. Catholic Focus: State of the Church features Archbishop Thomas Collins speaking openly about the Bishops Richard Williamson fiasco, the Vatican's need to overview its communications strategy and the prospects of dialogue with the Society of St. Pius X. Then the conversation moves into the recent revelations about Fr. Marcial Maciel, the founder of the Legionaries of Christ who fathered an illegitimate child, misappropriated funds and appears to have some culpability in earlier claims of sexual abuse of young seminarians. Archbishop Collins is forthright and persuasive in the interview, calling for an overhaul of the Legionaires and frankly admitting it may be wise for some priests and seminarians to leave the order.
With all the media attention on these two polarizing issues Toronto's Archbishop offers refreshingly open and wise words that will offer Canadian Catholics a better understanding of the stories making headlines in 2009.
Catholic Focus: State of the Church airs Tuesday, March 24th th at 7pm and 11pm ET, with an encore presentation Saturday, March 28th at the same times.
