The second half of the interview turns to the role of the Vice President, but again back to navigating the landscape of loss... the underlying message, however, is a strong testimony to Biden's character, to family, and indirectly, to faith.
All I can say is that this is very powerful stuff, even when sprinkled with the obligatory late-night jokes. These two talked about things that matter last night.
I find myself deeply affected. I hope that The Late Show with Stephen Colbert will provide us with many more such moments where the beauty and value of Catholic faith are lifted up in a positive light. Colbert sits in a position to deliver the message in a unique and powerful way, laced with his trademark humor and fully engaging the world. This could be one of the most significant Catholic evangelization platforms ever.
