Last month, I interviewed  Msgr. John Kozar, president of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association, a few days before he joined Pope Benedict XVI in Lebanon.
In March, I interviewed  Kozar about his new role at CNEWA.
On Friday, CNEWA published its 2011 annual report , and it's worth the time to read and reflect on its important work. CNEWA is a "jewel in the Church's crown," as the saying goes, and needs to be better known to U.S. Catholics.
