THE ETHOS OF MISSION        part 1    Ariel Dorfman has been called a “literary grandmaster”.  At age 28, Dorfman served as Cultural Advisor to Chile’s then President Salvador Allende.  A military coup led by Augusto Pinochet overthrew Allende in 1973 and  rounded-up many thousands of Chileans who were either tortured or murdered.  Thousands more fled the country, including Ariel Dorfman.  Answering these atrocities through his art became a personal mission for the young writer.  Haunting memories of Pinochet’s 17 year reign of terror come to life in much of Dorfman’s work, including his best known play, Death and the Maiden.  Our Producer Kathy Golden talks with Ariel Dorfman on his art and his great respect for the work of Maryknoll in Latin America.           

 

THE ETHOS OF MISSION    part 2    This year marks the Centennial of the Maryknoll Sisters.   Right on time for this milestone, Maryknoll Sister, Claudette LaVerdiere completed her latest mission, writing the biography of the organization’s founder, Mary Josephine “Mollie” Rogers.  On the Threshold of the Future: The Life and Spirituality of Mother Mary Joseph Rogers, Founder of the Maryknoll Sisters was published this year by Orbis Books.   Kathy Golden speaks with the author, Claudette LaVerdiere.
