Video: The Roman Catholic Cardinal with a Jewish Mother

From Odyssey Networks’ Faith on the Record series: This week The New York Times told a surprising story about the former Archbishop of New York, Cardinal John J. O’Connor – his mother was born Jewish. This story raises questions about religious identity and suggests a discussion of what “dual citizenship” in the realm of faith and spirituality might mean.
