Funny hosts, great guests and insightful news

I’m laughing along with the hosts during each episode – Olga, Zac and Ashley are young Catholics just like me and I like hearing their perspectives. The variety of guests is great, I like that the guests are not always Catholic or Christian, but come from their own faith tradition and it gives me more insight and perspective on people how have different life experiences than me. But my favourite part is the “Signs of the Times”, where Olga, Zac and Ashley talk about the Catholic news. I don’t have to search for news and can keep up to date easily.

My new favourite podcast!

I just learned of (Jesuit)ical at last year’s Ignatian Family Teach-in for Justice where I was lucky to meet Ashley, Olga, and Zac! I absolutely love this show! Definitely interesting guests (some of whom I don’t always agree 100% with, but I always learn something new) you have on the show! Hoping you guys decide to come up above the 49’ parallel soon!

So greatful

Dear Olga, Zach, and oh wonderful giggly one ( guess y’all know where I stand on Ashley’s fits of laughter ( how any one can object to that is beyond me))

I am offering deep gratitude and thanks for you folks this week. In case you had not heard, here in Canada, holy week was kind of challenging for Catholics, as pope Francis made a public statement about not being able to apologize for residential schools in this country. I spent part of holy week defending his decision, or at least clarifying to people(especially non-Catholics who have a propensity to simplify the image of the church by focusing mostly on Her sins committed by our priests, nuns, brothers and lay people )and Why a papal apology Was not that important Since this is our history and not the Vatican’s. However the real grace of Holy Week was that I started carrying some of the guilt around the schools a bit more. Not a fun process. Then I listened to some older podcasts of yours, in which you Expressed A sentiment That I needed to hear from my own healing: Both Ashley and Zach pointed out That There is ( or can be) a Generational differences in Approaching abuse in the church. That the previous generations may be ok with defending the church so we can avoid expensive legal fees and continue to do our important social justice ministries, but you guys are actively saying “ we did this and must suffer the consequences”. It was tough to hear but I think it finally sank in that saying stuff like this will help our church enter our own “ third week”, our own passion.

It’s humbling for me as a Jesuit to admit this, but I struggle a lot with our third week experience, as the secular world continues to marginalize the Church. But it helps me so much to hear your criticisms of the Church because they’re mixed in with the graces you receive every week, and with your enthusiastic gushing over our Holy papa! The way you combine criticism of the Church with a deep passion for Her gives me so much hope, and even joy ( though the joy part is easy with all the giggling that goes on in your podcasts!)
So... this Jesuit brother is eternally grateful for your prophetic ability to be honest and engaged Catholics! Keep being enthusiastically lay and prophetically hip witnesses to the potential we have as Church!!

Much love and prayers from Canada ( it’s snowing here today!!)
