Catholic World News - February 21, 2013

A prominent Canadian priest has joined the Vatican press office to help provide news bulletins for the English-speaking world during the busy weeks leading up to the papal conclave and installation of a new Roman Pontiff.

Father Thomas Rosica, the founder and head of the Salt and Light television network, joined Father Federico Lombardi, the director of the Vatican press office, at a February 21 briefing. Father Roscia, a Basilian priest, was the Canadian director for World Youth Day in 2002; he founded Salt and Light television the following year.
