A Lenten Exploration of the Gospel of Non-Violence and the Political and Religious implications of the Russian Invasion of Ukraine
For today’s episode of JustLove, we discuss the Lenten Practices such as Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving with the Associate Editor of America Magazine Colleen Dulle. She tells us about an online Lenten Series sponsored by the Casa Esther Catholic Worker, where they explore the Gospel of non-violence. The second segment of our show will feature the Ukrainian-born Chair of Theology and Philosophy at the University of Saint Thomas, Dr. Paul Gavrilyuk, who leads us through the political and religious ramifications of the Russian invasion of his home country.
