Produced four times a year, the magazine “seeks to offer its readers an indispensable, thoughtful resource for Americans of all faiths and perspectives.”
Recognized as the spiritual home for the nation, the 105-year-old landmark has served as the site of funeral and memorial services for American presidents as well as many presidential inaugural prayer services.
“Our presidential candidates have been molded by their faith communities as they have been shaped by educational institutions, families, and work experiences. The sources of their convictions and assumptions are proper inquiries in an election year,” said the Rev. Dr. Francis H. Wade, interim dean of the Cathedral in a press release.
The magazine asked Obama and Romney eight questions including: “How does faith play a role in your life,” and “What does a political leader’s faith tell you about him/her as a person?”
