Thanks for sharing this wonderful interview! When I tire of the daily news, I turn to streaming interviews, etc. while puttering in my kitchen. That was an hour well spent. I appreciated everything that Mr. Nasaw and Fr. Spinale shared, but I was really touched by your closing question, the answer and both of your final reflections. Food for thought in this Lenten season of alms giving - and prayer and fasting.
