The Brody File's 700 Club TV story on Judge Sonia Sotomayor aired this morning across the country on the ABC Family Channel. It replays tonight at 11pm. However, we have the link here so you can watch it online now.
A part of the story focuses in on her catholic highschool in New York. I went there last week. Below is an excerpt you might find different and interesting:
At Cardinal Spellman, Sotomayor received a heavy dose of Catholic worship and religious teaching.
"You had to take religion. That was part of the academic program as it still is today," said former classmate Bob Anderson. "There were Masses at various times during the year. There were opportunities to receive the Sacrament of Penance so a very religious atmosphere."
"There was a strong religious presence. I use that in the technical sense," said Father Trevor Nicholls, president of Cardinal Spellman. "There were brothers and sisters here and there were priests here in rather more numbers than there are now."
