Re-establishing trust after the Apostolic Visitation

May 19, 2012
Since it launched its Apostolic Visitation of American Women Religious in 2009, the Vatican's Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life (previously known as the Congregation for Religious) has been thrust in the spotlight. In the cacophony of voices and reactions to this important and necessary Visitation, Pope Benedict named the former Superior General of the historic Redemptorist Congregation, Archbishop Joseph William Tobin C.Ss.R, as the dicastery's secretary. The American Archbishop's appointment has elicited much positive response, as he quickly moved to re-establish trust and confidence between the visitators and women religious in the United States. Now that the visitation has concluded, Witness host Fr. Thomas Rosica speaks with Archbishop Tobin in this new, exclusive interview filmed in the Vatican Offices of Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life.
Another new Witness episode debuts on S+L this Sunday. Coinciding with the World Day of Social Communications, Fr. Rosica will be speaking with the President of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli. Witness airs every Sunday at 8:00pm & midnight with repeats on Thursday at 8:00pm & midnight (All times Eastern).
