Carl E. Olson, MTS, is the editor of Catholic World Report and Ignatius Insight. He is the author of two best-selling books, Will Catholics Be "Left Behind"? and The Da Vinci Hoax, and the author of hundreds of articles on theology, Scripture, current events, and apologetics.



Lou Holtz was a head coach for 34 years at both the college and pro levels and is perhaps best known for his 11-season stint as head coach at Notre Dame from 1986-1996.  Holtz earned National Coach of the Year honors from Football News and American Football Coaches Quarterly following the 2000 season, and the Gamecocks’ eight-win improvement from 1999-2000 was, at the time, the third-best turnaround in NCAA history. Holtz retired for a second time following the 2004 season and returned to broadcasting as an analyst for ESPN.

Bishop Michael Olson earned a bachelor of arts and master's degrees in philosophy from The Catholic University of America, master of arts in theological studies and a master of divinity from the University of St. Thomas in Houston and a doctorate in moral theology from the Alphonsian Academy in Rome. Olson was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Fort Worth on June 3, 1994. Pope Francis named Olson the Bishop of Fort Worth in November of 2013. He was consecrated and installed as the fourth bishop of the Diocese of Fort Worth on January 29, 2014.
