Witness: Archbishop Charles Brown

November 12, 2012
In 1989, Fr. Charles Brown was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of New York by the late Cardinal John O'Connor.  Fr. Charles Brown served from 1989 to 1991 as associate pastor of St. Brendan's Parish in the Bronx, New York City.  After many years working as a close collaborator to Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger at the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Charles Brown was appointed by his former boss, now Pope Benedict XVI as Apostolic Nuncio Nuncio to Ireland in 2012.
Join Fr. Thomas Rosica CSB for this WITNESS interview with the young nuncio, during which they discuss Archbishop Brown's journey and vocation to the priesthood, his time in Rome at the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, and a new, hopeful vision for Ireland and the universal Church.  This interview took place at the International Eucharistic Congress in Dublin, Ireland in June 2012.
