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. Were going to spend some time on those stories on this program. Today Megan Kamerick talks with three guests. The episode leads off with Megans conversation with Kate Hennessy, the granddaughter of Dorothy Day, who co-founded the Catholic Worker movement. Then Kerry Walters discusses his book: 'Saint Oscar 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.
