On this episode of Catholic Forum, after a brief introduction, the Holy Gospel for the Second Sunday of Advent, and a song from the Catholic Treasures CD, Msgr. Steven P. Hurley, Vicar General and Moderator of the Curia for the Diocese of Wilmington, and Pastor of St. Thomas the Apostle Parish in Wilmington, calls in from Rome where he, Bishop Francis Malooly, and Bishops from U.S. Regions 4 and 5 are having their ad limina visit.
An “ad limina apostolorum” visit is a papal meeting required for every diocesan bishop in the world to provide an update on the state of one’s diocese. What is it like to meet with the pope? We will get a report from “the threshold of the apostles,” from Msgr. Hurley today on Catholic Forum. Also, Father Rich Jasper will tell us about another Modern Day Witness, Father Walter Ciszek, S.J.
