This week on Jesuitical, Zac and Ashley are talking about the migrant crisis in New York City and the work Catholics are doing to respond. They are joined by Richard Slizeski, the senior vice president for mission at Catholic Charities Brooklyn and Queens. They talk to him about:

  • Migrants’ often harrowing experiences coming to the United States
  • What’s missing in the political debates around the migrant crisis in New York
  • How Catholic Charities’ mission and Catholic identity informs their work on the ground

In Signs of the Times, Zac and Ashley discuss recent revelations about what World War II-era Pope Pius XII knew about the Holocaust as it was occuring, as well as Pope Francis’ recent conversation with Bill Clinton.
