Pallottine priest recalls work with Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio

 |  NCR Today

Over at the Catholic Apostolate Center is an interview with Irish Pallottine priest Derry Murphy, who worked in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from 1985-2002 and with Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, now Pope Francis.

The Catholic Apostolate Center is a new evangelization Web-based platform under the direction of my friend Pallottine Fr. Frank Donio and is a ministry of the Society of the Catholic Apostalate (commonly known as the Pallottines), which takes its inspiration from the spirituality of St. Vincent Pallotti.

Five Pallottines -- three priests, a professed student and a postulant -- were killed in the parish house in Belgrano on July 4, 1976, during the military dictatorship.

"NCR is a progressive voice that is different from my diocesan newspaper. It is holding the church and the hierarchy to the principles of Vatican II. It informs us about Catholicism without being dogmatic."
