April 14, 2008 - Pope Benedict XVI's Visit - Clinging to Religion

Rev. Robert A. Sirico

Rev. Robert Sirico, president of the Acton Institute, appears on the Fox Business Network to comment on Pope Benedict XVI's visit to the United States. Sirico reacts to Senator Obama's comment that people "cling to religion" saying that people find inspiration in the midst of adversity but that the Pope probably wouldn't think of this in terms of class struggle. The Pope, says Sirico, emphasizes a hope rooted in Christ that is able to confront the difficulties of human life and revealing the meaning and purpose of human life.
