MPR: Father Michael O'Connell (Basilica of St. Mary) - what's on the minds of the next generation of Catholics

MPR's midmorning today hosted Father Michael O'Connell, who is leaving the Basilica of St. Mary in a discussion that included what's on the minds of the next generation of Catholics (the conservative tide, social justice/fighting poverty) and also his plans for Minneapolis' North neighborhood and his new parish at Ascension.

I'd like to hear more from the Catholic Church about how the war/occupation of Iraq hurts the poor, about how we need to redirect militaristic spending towards fighting poverty and other domestic programs. Young Evangelicals lead by Shane Claiborne are already there...
