This week on “Jesuitical,” Zac and Ashley chat with Linda K. Wertheimer, a journalist and the author of the book Faith Ed: Teaching about Religion in an Age of Intolerance. In a recent article in The New Republic, Linda explores renewed efforts in some parts of the country to get prayer back into public schools. They discuss:

  • Linda’s experience of being the only Jewish student in a public school with weekly Christian Bible classes
  • The history of school prayer at the Supreme Court
  • How to balance religious freedom and inclusion in an increasingly diverse country

In Signs of the Times, the hosts give an update on Pope Francis’ recovery after his three-hour abdominal surgery and discuss the approval of what would be the first publicly funded religious charter school in the nation.

Finally, Ashley reflects on her vision of heaven.
