My Life with the Saints
Chicago, IL (Vocus) February 23, 2009
Best-selling author and Catholic commentator Fr. James Martin will be a guest on The Colbert Report, February 23, 2009.
Known for his wit and depth of insight on Catholics and culture, Martin has been a frequent guest on several mainstream media shows talking about everything from Mother Teresa to the latest Oscars. Tonight, Colbert fans will be treated to a lively discussion and "battle of wits" between Colbert and Martin.
Appearing as a guest on the Colbert Show is only one twist in Martin's interesting life journey. From the executive fast track at GE to ordination as a Jesuit priest, James Martin has lead a rather exciting life. His ministry as a Jesuit has brought him to the slums of Nairobi, the projects of inner-city Chicago, and now to a media career in Manhattan.
Besides writing for America, a national Catholic magazine, Martin has authored several books including the best seller "My Life with the Saints", which has sold more than 80,000 copies.
