Thomas Cardinal Collins
Archbishop of Toronto; advisor to Pope Benedict XVI
Meet one of the newest members of one of the world's most exclusive clubs. Thomas Christopher Collins grew up- almost literally in the shadow of Guelph Ontario's Church of Our Lady, where he attended and served morning Mass. After mulling careers in teaching and the law, he opted for the priesthood. Fast forward to February 2012, and his elevation to Cardinal- just the 16th Cardinal ever to come from Canada. A half century after Vatican II brought dramatic changes to the church, he faces tough questions about the church's place in the 21st century. Today, Thomas Cardinal Collins joins Lorna Dueck for a feature interview. This is Context - the show that looks at life beyond the headlines.
