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."
