Roman Pilgrimage: The Station Churches
by George Weigel
with Elizabeth Lev and Stephen Weigel
“On cold, dreary, damp late winter early mornings in Rome, hundreds of priests, seminarians, sisters, and devoted faithful walk the Roman cobblestones to one of the Eternal City’s most venerable sites, the station church of that day. It’s a microcosm of the pilgrim Church and of life’s journey, and Easter is never brighter than after faithfully completing this sixteen-century-old pilgrimage tradition.”
-Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York
EPPC Distinguished Senior Fellow George Weigel will discuss his book Evangelical Catholicism at the 2013 Library of Congress National Book Festival in Washington, D.C.
Pope Francis’s lengthy interview published yesterday in the Jesuit journal America is already the topic of competing interpretations – and misinterpretations. In this essay for National Review Online, EPPC Distinguished Senior Fellow George Weigel explains that those willing to take Pope Francis “in full” will discern his conviction that “it is by insisting on conversion to Jesus Christ, on lifelong deepening of the believer’s friendship with him, and on the Church’s ministry as an instrument of the divine mercy that the Church will help others make sense of its teaching on [moral] matters — with which the New York Times, not the Catholic Church, is obsessed — and will begin to transform a deeply wounded culture.”
