Best assignment ever

Occasionally I receive writing assignments for my alma mater's, Claremont McKenna College's, alumni magazine. The assignments are always interesting and usually quite different from the rest of the writing that I do, plus they pay much better than any other publication I have written for. This month I have the incredible opportunity to interview the new Catholic chaplain of the House of Representatives, an alum, and write an article about him for the fall issue.

Of course, some of the article must be reserved for discussing his college experience and how that relates to his current ministry and his path for getting there. But I can also ask him anything that I want about his position, the relationship between politics and religion in this country, the current roiling political climate, etc.

So, if you had an hour to talk to him, what questions would you ask??
