Merry Christmas, listeners! This week we are joined by Michael J. O’Loughlin, national correspondent for America, for our last episode of 2017 to discuss some of the top stories on America’s website—which he also happened to write!

Our top three news stories were:

  1. Pope Francis says give to the homeless, don't worry about how they spend it, as Lent begins, by Michael J. O’Loughlin.
  2. Pope Francis to activists: Stand with migrants, do not deny climate science, there is no such thing as ‘Islamic terrorism’, by Michael J. O’Loughlin.
  3. No, Neil Gorsuch did not start a ‘Fascism Forever’ club at his Jesuit high school, by Michael J. O’Loughlin.

To hear all of the stories we discussed, please listen to our podcast. Thank you for tuning in each week. Have a blessed New Year.
