This week on Jesuitical, we’re joined by Luke Russert, the author of the new memoir Look for Me There: Grieving My Father, Finding Myself. Luke is the son of Tim Russert, the legendary host of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” and served as an NBC News correspondent from 2008 to 2016. We talk to Luke about:

  • What it was like to lose his father and hero Tim Russert the year he graduated from college
  • Why he decided to leave a successful career in journalism to travel the world
  • The limits of travel when it comes to processing grief and finding yourself

And during Signs of the Times, Ashley and Zac discuss the following news stories:

  • The historic participation of Catholic cardinals and bishops at the coronation of King Charles III this weekend
  • The Sisters of Charity of New York’s decision to no longer accept new members and to embark on a “path of completion”
  • The maiden voyage of a Staten Island Ferry named for Dorothy Day
