      2007 AWARDS


      CATHOLIC PRESS ASSOCIATION HONORS

      • Second Place
        Category: Best Interview
        "An Extraordinary Journey of the Heart"
        By Jason Koshinskie
        Faith magazine

      "An amazing story about life after death on earth," the judges wrote. "The writer did ample research and interviews and told the tale—both past and present—of Paul and Tina O'Brien very well. A tragedy needs little help from a writer to resonate, and Koshinskie keenly didn't attempt to sell this story to his readers. He let the facts and the sources speak for themselves and the story was well-served as a result."
