On the occasion of the passing of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, Peter Robinson discusses his career and legacy with the Very Reverend Father Paul Scalia.

Father Scalia grew up in the Diocese of Arlington and attended the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts.  He then studied theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University and the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas in Rome.  Since his ordination in 1996 he has served as parochial vicar at several parishes and as pastor of Saint John the Beloved in McLean.  He currently serves as the Episcopal Vicar for Clergy and directs the permanent diaconate program.

    Frankly, this was a pretty lousing interview about Pope Benedict.  How did it get so far off topic?

    Quick correction. Fr. Scalia is now pastor of St. James in Falls Church. Will listen later as Fr. Scalia is always interesting.

    Listening I see that you got the pastor position correct just wrong in the show notes. On to listening to the whole thing now. Thanks.

    Peter was spot on about the Church in Europe- I also attended mass in the Duomo & there were about a dozen people there-and several were nuns that worked in a  nearby store (it was a daily mass).

    Excellent interview, Peter.  Probably need to be Catholic and a Ratzinger fan to truly appreciate what these two are talking about.
