Ep. 182 George Weigel on Vatican II at 60 and Mass for Persecuted Christians

Conversations with Consequences

Marking 60 years since the Second Vatican Council convened in Rome, George Weigel joins Dr. Grazie Christie and Maureen Ferguson to discuss how the Council was far more about “Christifying” the world than about changing the Church. As the first ever Mass for the Persecuted Christians is celebrated next week, Father Ben Kiely and composer Paul Jernberg join with a sneak peek of the beautiful music and prayer for those suffering around the world. Father Roger Landry also offers an inspiring homily for this Sunday's Gospel. Catch the show every Saturday at 7amET/5pmET on EWTN radio!

Author interview with George Weigel on his book, ”Not Forgotten”

Ignatius Press Podcast

https://www.ignatius.com/Not-Forgotten-P3788.aspx The world is full of interesting people, and it has been George Weigel's good fortune to have known many such personalities in a variety of fields: politics, religion, the arts and sciences, journalism, the academy, entertainment, and sports. In this collection of reminiscences and elegies, the best-selling author of the definitive biography of Pope Saint John Paul II remembers these men and women from inside the convictions that formed them. Whether he is sketching the lives of Nobel Prize–winning scientists, major league baseball managers, princes of the Church, television personalities, or history-making political leaders, Weigel tries to understand, and help readers understand, the deep truths of the human condition illuminated by each of these not-forgotten lives. Written with verve, insight, and an appreciation for the consequential lives that have touched his own, Not Forgotten fills out the autobiographical portrait that George Weigel began painting in Lessons in Hope: My Unexpected Life with Saint John Paul II, while offering a backstage view of some of the men and women who have shaped the turbulent history of our times. The 60 intriguing lives that he writes about are a wide diversity of unique characters and personalities, including Albert Einstein, William F. Buckley, Flannery O’Connor, Franz Jägerstätter, John Paul II, Jackie Robinson, Charles Krauthammer, Sophie Scholl, Henry Hyde, James Schall, S.J., Dietrich Von Hildebrand, Charles Colson, Fr Richard J. Neuhaus and many more.
