For months now, I've been looking forward to my upcoming television appearance on CatholicTV's wonderful show This is the Day.  Imagine how I felt when the following press release landed in my inbox - the other guest on the show will be none other than Robert Duvall!  Unfortunately, I don't think Mr. Duvall will be in studio, so I won't be able to hand him a copy of my book in person, but it's such an honor to share time on a show with such a noted actor.

Here are all of the details - I hope you'll be able to tune in and watch what promises to be a very exciting show.

Academy-Award-Winning Actor Robert Duvall Will Appear on Live Catholic Talk Show

On August 6th, the live CatholicTV talk show "This is the Day" will include an interview with actor Robert Duvall.

Duvall will discuss his role in the upcoming film "Get Low", "a movie spun out of equal parts folk tale, fable and real-life legend about the mysterious, 1930s Tennessee hermit who famously threw his own rollicking funeral party, while he was still alive".

Duvall is well-known for playing the role of Tom Hagen in the film "The Godfather" and also won an academy award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his role in the movie Tender Mercies (1983).

This is the Day airs at 10:30AM ET at and on CatholicTV. The show is rebroadcast at 7:30PM.

Catholic blogger and author Lisa Hendey will also be interviewed on This is the Day.

Lisa will discuss her new book, "The Handbook for Catholic Moms" which recently published by Ave Maria Press ( in February 2010.

Lisa is a Catholic mother, author, and founder of In her new book, Lisa draws from the deep tradition of the Catholic faith, and coaches Catholic moms on how to care for themselvesŻheart, mind, body, and soulŻso that they can better love and care for their families, their neighbors, and their Church.

In her book, Lisa creates an environment where Catholic moms can reflect peacefully upon often-competitive topics like parenting style, types of schooling, and working outside the home. By sharing her own story, Hendey inspires readers to better balance their own needs with the demands of family life and faith commitment.
