This week, Ashley and Zac are joined by Matt Maher. Matt is a nine-time-GRAMMY nominee and three-time-GMA Dove Award winning musician. His latest album is “The Stories I Tell Myself.” They talk to Matt about his connection with the hit TV show “The Chosen” and how the events of the past couple of years influenced his new album, “The Stories I Tell Myself.” They discuss how the pandemic affected his art, why he decided to write songs about racial justice and polarization and get Matt’s take on the liturgy wars.

During Signs of the Times, the hosts discuss newly allegations of sexual abuse against a prominent Jesuit artist. Plus, how should we think about lifting Covid-19 protocols at Mass like the Communion cup and sign of peace?
