Lino Rulli on Catholic Focus

October 2, 2013

Pope John Paul II once said that "The Gospel lives always in conversation with culture, for the Eternal Word never ceases to be present to the Church and to humanity. If the Church holds back from culture, the Gospel itself falls silent." (Address to the participants in the plenary meeting of the pontifical council for social communications, March 1, 2002.) Also, Pope Francis, during his homily at the Closing Mass of World Youth Day 2013 in Rio de Janeiro, said that the best tool to evangelize a young person is another young person. Can we assume then, that the best circumstances in which to evangelize a young person is when what we do engages culture and when it is done by another young person? Or rather, if you are engaging culture and your venture is done by young people, does that mean that what you do is something that will attract other young people?
Lino Rulli is the host of the Catholic Guy, a radio talk show on the Catholic Channel on Sirius XM satellite radio (channel 129). Before hosting this radio show, Lino was the producer and star of the Emmy award-winning TV program, Generation Cross, a show that was done by young people and that very effectively engaged culture. It was a very successful show, but was it a successful evangelization tool?
In order to answer these questions and to explore this subject further, Deacon Pedro sits with the Catholic Guy himself, Lino Rulli in an all-new Catholic Focus, today, Wednesday, October 2nd at 7 and 11pm ET; 8pm PT (rebroadcasts on Saturday, Oct 5). Learn all about how Generation Cross came to be, what is the thinking behind the Catholic Guy radio program and about Lino Rulli's new book, Saint, now available from Servant Books.
