Cardinal Kasper a breath of fresh air on WNYC

 |  NCR Today

Brian Lehrer of WNYC scored a great interview with Cardinal Walter Kasper on May 5. Kasper did not disappoint. He called Pope Francis' era a "springtime" for the church.

Kasper himself is a breath of fresh air.

According to WNYC, "Walter Kasper, German cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church, president emeritus of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, and author of Mercy: The Essence of the Gospel and the Key to Christian Life (Paulist Press, 2014), talks about his book (that got a good review by Pope Francis) and the shift in emphasis from judgment to mercy in the church today."

If one is serious about the work of the church, listening to this interview is an important exercise.
