Which Pope said this?

«The Church itself is being engulfed and shaken by this tidal wave of change, for however much men may be committed to the Church, they are deeply affected by the climate of the world. They run the risk of becoming confused, bewildered and alarmed, and this is a state of affairs which strikes...

Rethinking Religion in Professional Life

I’ve been involved in a lot of programming related to religion at my corporate workplace. In the name of diversity and inclusion, one event I’m organizing currently is centered around the question, “How do you bring your religious self to work?” Religious persons, whether Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, Jewish, or otherwise, often see...

Pope Francis to US bishops: Be pastors, not politicians

During his flight back to Rome from Slovakia, Pope Francis spoke on several issues that are dividing the Church, especially in the US: the Covid vaccine, the denial of communion to pro-choice politicians, the Amoris Laetitia debate, and same-sex unions. There’s a lot to unpack here—indeed, there’s a lot to unpack about this...

The Camino Revisited – Part 1: A place I do not want to go

Everything feels wrong in the hermitage. Apart from the donkeys. They remain the same, with their usual routine and their daily needs, but above all they contribute their sane equine stoicism. They are very calm, centered animals: just what you need in a hermitage. But apart from them, everything else has felt wrong...

In Memoriam 9/11/21

   I can almost forget. Almost, but never. The impact of the second plane. The plumes of black smoke. The bodies falling through the sunny sky. The rumble. The towers’ collapse. The enveloping white cloud filled with asbestos and powdery debris. Later, the candle memorials. The photograph collages of loved ones. The newscaster’s...

September 11 As a Childhood Memory

I’m a little hesitant to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks for Where Peter Is. But I volunteered to do so, and so here I am. As a member of one of the youngest cohorts that actually remembers it, I have a personal 9/11 story but I’m not sure...

I Remember: 9/11, Twenty Years Later

People are often surprised at my long history at CBS News. CBS, after all, isn’t exactly a farm team for Catholic clergy. I am probably the only man in history who went from working for Katie Couric to working for the Pope. But my story, I hope, helps to tell our story. The...
