The Beauty and Challenge of Being Catholic

The Catholic Studies Program at Santa Clara University, my alma mater, is sponsoring me for a lecture this Thursday on the subject of “Catholic Identity Today.” The great Jesuit I am working with pointed me to a wonderful podcast for some inspiration, and now I’m recommending it to you.

The Beauty and Challenge of Being Catholic” is one episode in a series of podcasts called “Speaking of Faith” hosted by Krista Tippett.  Before listening to the hourlong podcast compilation of eleven diverse lay voices, I read the its written transcript. Tears streamed down my face as I read the text–so you can only imagine how moved I was to hear the podcast’s real voices recite their personal accounts of Catholicism’s beauties and challenges.
