Why is the Easter Vigil so long? And why should you definitely go anyway? We sat down with James Martin, S.J., (again) to talk about all things Holy Week. 

This week in Signs of the Times we explain where we got the phrase “Signs of the Times” (we didn't make it up we promise), and discuss Sean Spicer (yes, he's Catholic) and the priest who is not a fan of Francis. All that and more for the holiest week of the year and on perhaps the holiest episode of jesuitical.

As always, we want to hear from you. Leave a comment here, tweet us @jesuiticalshow or write us an email at [email protected]. If you like what you're hearing, please subscribe on iTunes, leave us a review and tell a friend about the show.
