George Weigel on “The Fragility of Order”, JPII & The Church in America

George Weigel a Catholic theologian and one of America’s leading public intellectuals discusses his recent book, “The Fragility of Order” (published by Ignatius Press). He also looks at some of the disorder we see in today’s world especially amid much of our current political upheaval.

In our Classic Catholic Social Teaching segment, we discuss Ecclesia in America. This letter from Pope John Paul II to bishops, priests, deacons, men and women religious, and all lay Catholics focuses on the encounter with the living Jesus Christ, the way to conversion, and communion and solidarity in America.

Then in our Bricklayer segment, we talk about a “citizenship hour” and the ways you can bring your faith into public life for even just one hour per week.
