The Francis Effect Podcast: Biden’s First 100 Days and What the Bishops Think About It; plus the causes of Catholics leaving the church
NCR editor-in-chief Heidi Schlumpf is part of the podcast “The Francis Effect” this season, joining Franciscan co-hosts Fr. Daniel Horan (columnist for NCR’s “Faith Seeking Understanding”) and David Dault, executive producer and host of “Things Not Seen: Conversations about Culture and Faith”.
In this week’s episode, the Season 8 finale, Heidi, Father Daniel, and David discuss President Joe Biden’s address to the Joint Session of Congress and the views of American Bishops on whether Biden should or not to receive communion. They also examine the factors that cause some Catholics to leave the church. (And they’re sharing their plans for summer vacation – and conference season.)
