Archbishop Aymond and Coronavirus (April 18)

This week’s show features Archbishop Gregory Aymond of New Orleans, who on March 23 became the first bishop to announce that he tested positive for the new coronavirus. He spoke to Jeanette De Melo by phone on April 9 just hours before celebrating Holy Thursday Mass. But first Matthew Bunson and Jeanette catch up on the latest news — at least one U.S. diocese is resuming public Masses — and the pro-life community reaches out to serve women in crisis pregnancies.

Coronavirus, Catholic Schools (Aug. 1)

The COVID-19 pandemic has re-emerged as a major health crisis in the United States and around the world. How is the Church responding, and what can be done to keep parishioners safe as they worship? We talk with Dr. Timothy Flanigan, a Catholic deacon and infectious disease specialist at Brown University. Also, we’ve had a lot of news this week on Catholic schools, including an important op-ed by several important Church leaders reminding us that Catholic schools are worth saving. We talk with Register contributor Andrea Picciotti-Bayer.
