A Visit to Salt + Light

Last week I had the privilige of visiting Salt + Light communications in Toronto, a very impressive organization that operates a host of  media ministries, including a television station, a radio program, a magazine and, of course, a blog. Salt + Light is directed by Fr. Tom Rosica, who also serves as Consultor to the Pontifical Council for Social Communicationson, and grew out of World Youth Day in Toronto in 2002. They take their inspiration from the Biblical mandate to be "the salt of the earth and the light of the world."

On the day I visited, I was joined by Bishop John Wester of Salt Lake City, the new chair of the communications committee for the U.S. bishops' conference. We were both very impressed by the energy of the organization, which employs a number of enthusiatic, young Catholics, who gather every day at noon in the office chapel to celebrate Mass. You can watch a nifty introduction to Salt + Light here, and if you are so moved, my conversation with Bishop Wester on Salt + Light's nightly television program, Perspectives, which appears below.
