In our Classic Catholic Social Teaching segment, we examine Pope St. John Paul II’s very first encyclical, “Redemptor Hominis”. In English, this means, “Redeemer of Man”. It was written at the start of his pontificate in 1979. In it, he speaks of the road to Christian unity, the mystery of redemption, and how this looks in the modern world.

Then in our bricklayer segment, you’ll hear how you can learn about various bills presented at the capitol. Plus, we let you know how to track the progress of bills that come before your legislators.
