About This Show
This year marks the 15th anniversary of the death of Columbia native Joseph Bernardin, who rose to the position of Cardinal in the American Catholic Church. Around the ethical/moral life issues facing society, Bernardin advocated a "consistent ethic of life" and later initiated a project of reconciliation called "Common Ground," a healing legacy that transcends ideological boundaries.
The documentary, Bernardin, (airing statewide on Sunday, Nov. 13, at 5:00 p.m. on ETV and at 9:00 p.m. on ETV's SC Channel) examines the life of a man who helped define many of the critical issues facing the nation and recalls how America stood with him, as he was called to publicly define himself.
Martin Doblmeier, producer of Bernardin will talk with Dr. Edgar about the making of the documentary and the legacy of Cardinal Bernardin.
