President Obama will welcome Pope Francis to the White House next Wednesday with a special ceremony. Two of the invited guests at that reception join Eric on this weeks show, Bishop Gene Robinson and Aaron Ledesma.
Robinson served as the ninth bishop of the Episcopal diocese of New Hampshire and is now a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress. Ledesma is a blogger and recent graduate of a Catholic university who shares his story of being both openly gay and Catholic.
We also review the news of the week from the public square and share a reflection on a reading from John’s gospel.
