Dr. James Chappel on The Challenge of Totalitarianism and the Remaking of the Church

In today’s episode, we are speaking with James Chappel, an assistant professor of history at Duke University and author of Catholic Modern The Challenge of Totalitarianism and the Remaking of the Church (Harvard University Press, 2018). We’re discussing the Church’s political engagement, particularly in Europe, during the 20th Century and the historical events and times that have shaped it.

In our mailbag segment, we’re covering a question about legalizing recreational marijuana.

And, stick around for the bricklayer segment we have details on two opportunities to pray for Our Holy Mother’s intercession at the Capitol.
