Good episode? Give it some love!
Despite the Catholic Church being mired in its sexual abuse scandal which
has tarnished the faith's reputation globally, Catholic history also holds
many courageous stories of people working for peace, social justice and
economic equity. We’re going to spend some time on those stories on this
program. Today Megan Kamerick talks with three guests. The episode leads
off with Megan’s conversation with Kate Hennessy, the granddaughter of
Dorothy Day, who co-founded the Catholic Worker movement. Then Kerry
Walters discusses his book: "Saint Óscar Romero: Pastor, Prophet, Martyr.
Romero was assassinated in 1980 while saying mass and was canonized in
2018. He died the day after he spoke out against the violence in El
Salvador. Megan also speaks with Sister Simone Campbell, a contemporary
advocate of social justice and one of the leaders of the “Nuns On The Bus”
movement, wherein a group of nuns travels on a bus from town to town
throughout the U.S. to advocate for under-served populations.
