Vatican’s ties to Minnesota grow ever stronger

Minnesota author (and former MPR reporter) Leif Enger was interviewed in yesterday’s edition of the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano. Enger is the author of two acclaimed books, “Peace Like a River” and more recently “So Brave, Young, and Handsome,” the latter of which has just been published in Italian. Seeking atonement for one’s sins is a major theme in the novel.

This on the heels of the announcement that the Vatican has declared the Cathedral of St. Paul a national shrine.
