Archbishop Charles Chaput, OFM Cap

November 3, 2011
2011 featured numerous high-profile appointments by Pope Benedict. But none, arguably, were as buzzed-about as the new head of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, a historic see that has been rocked by the abuse crisis. The Pope chose Archbishop Charles Chaput, who, as the former Archbishop of Denver, had already gained international exposure for his eloquent writing on faith and politics. Witness host Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB speaks with the Capuchin prelate in the days following his appointment to Philadelphia.
