Ted Kennedy's Catholicism

 |  NCR Today

This week on Interfaith Voices, my lead interview is with Jonathan Karp, the publisher and editor who worked with Senator Ted Kennedy for more than two years to write and publish his memoir, True Compass. It has just hit the bookstores in the last couple weeks, and it’s a wonderful read!

Karp talks about how Matthew 25 (feed the hungry, clothe the naked, etc. ...) was at the heart of Kennedy’s Catholic faith, and how it nourished his legislative agenda. He also talks about how he assessed his personal moral failings, and how he viewed the issue of abortion.
