Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio), speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, took part in an email interview with seminarian Tim Sahd of St. Charles Borromeo Seminary.
Boehner speaks about his Catholic faith and how he relies on it in public life.
Sahd is a Pre-Theology II seminarian studying for the Diocese of Harrisburg, whose home parish is Sacred Heart of Jesus in Lancaster, Pa. He is a 2001 graduate of St. Bonaventure University, where he earned a B.A. in journalism. After college, he moved to Washington, D.C., where he worked with a political analyst and later edited a daily political publication covering the House of Representatives. He entered the seminary in 2013.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
