Pope Benedict's apostolic visit to the US

I've finally edited and posted the audio from our class on Pope Benedict XVI's apostolic visit to the United States in April of 2008. Topics include the contrast between media coverage of the events and what the Pope actually said, and an in-depth look at several of the texts from his visit, including the question and answer session held on the plane trip to the US, the Pope's words to the bishops, to leaders of Catholic institutions of higher education, and to ecumenical leaders. Duration: 91 minutes.

Click here for the links to the audio, as well as to the Vatican's website, which contains the text of all of the Pope's addresses during his visit.

More audio on the way soon... from our class on the virtues and the passions, led by guest speakers Dr. Daniel McInerny of the Notre Dame Center for Ethics and Culture, and Dr. Michael P. Foley of the Great Texts Program at Baylor University.
