The Roots of Ecological Mission with Fr. Larry Radice, M.M

The Roots of Ecological Mission with Fr. Larry Radice, M.M

On this episode Among The People, we are joined again by Fr. Larry Radice, M.M. who discusses his experience and importance of alternative energy sources. Solar energy, wind energy, and geothermal heating have both positives and negatives that should be part of every discussion because they can provide major benefits for communities.

From growing up on a small farm in Colorado to serving on mission after his ordination in 1985 in Tanzania, Africa, Fr. Larry has had a sensitivity to and keen interest in the Care of Creation.

Leveling the Praying Field, with Dr. Ansel Augustine

Leveling the Praying Field, with Dr. Ansel Augustine

Ansel Augustine offers a personal and historical perspective on issues of race and inequality in the church as he considers the challenges posed by the rise of Millennials, Gen Z, and future generations.

A recent study on diversity in the Catholic Church revealed that 72 percent of Gen Z, which is majority non-white, consider racial equality to be one of the most important issues today.

And yet the church has been slow to respond. This tells us that “ministry as usual” from a Eurocentric perspective will not work. In response, Augustine provides insights as to how the church can respond to racial injustice not only in our changing society, but more importantly, how the church can stay relevant and real for this justice-hungry generation.

The Feast of the Epiphany

Lord Jesus Christ,
may Your Word rise like a guiding star
in our hearts and minds
to lead us through the darkest nights
and show us the way
when we seem lost or far from You.

May we always follow Your star
even to foreign lands and unfamiliar peoples
to seek and find You in unlikely places
rejoicing in Your truth no matter
in what language and regardless of
who speaks it.

Like the holy Magi of old
we cross borders that divide us
and break down barriers of division
that our gifts may show we understand
the great gift You are to us
as king, both human and divine.

Amen.

Father Joseph Veneroso, M.M.

Rising, Learning from Women’s Leadership in Catholic Ministries, Interview with Carolyn Y. Woo, PhD

Rising, Learning from Women’s Leadership in Catholic Ministries, Interview with Carolyn Y. Woo, PhD

Robert Ellsberg sits down with Author, Carolyn Y. Woo, to discuss Rising, Learning from Women’s Leadership in Catholic Ministries.

Through reflection on first-person narratives of a range of women involved in leadership positions in Catholic ministries (social justice, LCWR and religious congregations, educational, media, diocesan, NGOs, etc.), Rising examines the range of leadership roles that women play in the Catholic Church, explores the particular challenge that women face, as well their distinctive styles of leadership, while also pointing toward an expanded understanding of ministry and leadership in the church. The contributors represent a broad range of women in leadership positions, ranging from the conservative Becket Fund, to Sr. Simone Campbell, Kerry Robinson, Kerry Weber (America media), Sr. Carol Keehan (Catholic Health Association), Kim Daniels (staff for USCCB), etc.
