A view into the Vatican

October 6, 2013
A 51-year-old Italian priest, Dario Edoardo Viganò, born in Rio de Janeiro, began his new job at the Vatican on January 22, 2013, only weeks before the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI. Viganò’s main mission as director of the Vatican Television Centre (CTV) is to provide global TV and Internet feeds of what unfolds in the Vatican’s inner sanctums, to which CTV has exclusive access. Within a few weeks of beginning his new job, his first major assignment was to tell the world the story of the resignation of a pope, the Sede Vacante, the Conclave and election of a new Bishop of Rome. Under Viganò’s artistic eye, magnificent images of those events went around the entire world. Join host Fr. Thomas Rosica in this exclusive WITNESS interview as he speaks with the head of Vatican TV about Viganò’s mission to keep an age-old institution firmly in the 21st century.
