Broadcasting from the Bishops Conference

My program for The Catholic Channel on Sirius XM Satellite Radio is normally produced from my residence on Madison Avenue in New York, but since I’m in Baltimore this week for the annual USCCB meeting we decided to produce the show from here. Because of the full schedule we keep, the best time for us to tape the show was 7:00 a.m. Tuesday morning!  I’m not complaining at all, because I was particularly privileged to have with me Cardinal Egan, who founded The Catholic Channel during his time as Archbishop, and was also my predecessor on this program.  It was great to have him on for the hour!  Joining us were Father James Wehner, Rector of the Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, Ohio, and Monsignor James Checchio, Rector of the Pontifical North American College in Rome.  It was inspiring to hear about the enthusiasm of the young men currently preparing themselves to answer God’s call to the priesthood.  I think you’ll find it an interesting program.  It airs Thursday at 1:00 p.m. Eastern time, and then at various times during the weekend.
