The Way

Today my co-host, Father Dave Dwyer, and I had the pleasure of interviewing Martin Sheen for our radio program, A Conversation with the Archbishop for The Catholic Channel on Sirius XM Satellite Radio. Martin is one of our best known American actors, and he was here to talk about his new movie, The Way, which opens this weekend here in New York and then eventually around the country.  The Way is a moving and beautiful story of a man who undertakes to walk Camino de Santiago – The Way of Saint James, in Spain.  I was especially touched as Martin described working with his son, Emilio Estevez, who not only appears in the movie but directed it as well.

Also joining us on the show was Monsignor Kevin Codd, pastor of Saint Thomas More Catholic Student Center at Washington State University in Pullman, Washington, and author of the book, To the Field of Stars: A Pilgrim’s Journey to Santiago de Compostela.

I hope you can tune in to the show on Sirius XM 129 this Thursday at Noon, or during one of the replays – Saturday at 6 a.m. or 1 p.m., or Sunday at 9 a.m., 1 p.m., or midnight (all times Eastern)

    I don’t have satellite radio.

    If SiriusXM permitted The Catholic Channel to release this upcoming segment as a free podcast, I would recommend it to other young adults in the Ann Arbor, MI, area, in preparation for next Wednesday’s preview showing of “The Way.”

    Dear Archbishop,

    I’m sure we will find ” The Way” very inspiring.

    Could you please post either your September 29, 2011 Letter to the Bishops of the United States, or a link to its text, on your blog so that the Laity can be informed of the concerns of the U.S. Bishops Conference about Religious Liberty in the United States.

    Thank you.

    After viewing the trailer, I do have a concren about what appeared to be the father’s spreading of his son’s cremated remains as he travelled along the camino. Is thiswhat the movie actualy depicts? Did +Dolan have a comment about this? The movie seems like one I’d like to see, but this ? did arise.

    Did you see that Sheen has no problem re-electing a pro-abortion chief executive? Sheen is the poster boy for a generation confused catholics. I am not impressed and would not be yucking it up with someone who supports those who are attacking our religious freedoms.

    It’s things like this create confusion amoungst catholics. We slap those on the back who are completely opposed to what we believe.
