Catholics "Personally Speaking" to air on NBC TV
The Cafeteria Is Closed is reporting that there is to be a program scheduled to air on various NBC affiliates (does not say which ones) that will look in depth at the Catholic faith grounding three "famous" people (Mary Higgins Clark, Nicholas Sparks, and Jack McKeon) -- it sounds pretty good! It sounds like it is something that was produced by the USCCB's Communications Campaign (!) and hosted by Msgr. Jim Lisante (I've heard good things about him!)
I remember listening to Relevant Radio one day and hearing Nicholas Sparks talk about the importance of his Catholic faith in his life, and was very interested in it, if a bit surprised. I have read a few of his books, and they are not exactly chaste (not necessarily on par with good ole' Fr. Andrew Greeley's dubious novels, but still, a bit, shall we say, "gritty"). I would be interested to hear more of his story, particularly his faith timeline. Mary Higgins Clark too I have heard about before but never in any great detail. The other guy, a baseball manager I guess, I never heard of (sorry sir!).
