“The Pope Whisperer”

Who is he? The pope whisperer.

Why is he in the news? He’s the first journalist to conduct an extended interview with a pope. The result is his book Light of the World.

Most appealing characteristic? Dogged determination to get that interview.

Least appealing characteristic?
An ego that has grown with his status, former colleagues say.

Most likely to say “Just a few minutes more, Holy Father.”

Least likely to say
“About that Virgin Birth . . .”

About Schütz

I am Catholic, married to Cathy, father of Maddy & Mia. Since 2002, I have been the Executive Officer of the Ecumenical & Interfaith Commission of the Archdiocese of Melbourne. I was once a Lutheran pastor, but a "year of grace" and soul-searching led me into the Catholic Church. It was a bumpy ride, but with the support of my (still Lutheran) wife, I was finally confirmed on June 16, 2003.
