Checking in with Florida and Honoring Indigenous People’s Day
On today’s recording of JustLove, we check in with the CEO of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Venice in Florida. We learn how the organization is reaching out to all those struggling to recover from the aftermath of Hurricane Ian. We also examine the complicated history of Indigenous People’s Day in our conversation with Dr. Robert Senkewicz. We discuss the life and legacy of Father Junipero Serra, canonized by Pope Francis in 2015, and who has been criticized in recent years for being an instrument of Spanish imperial colonialism.
Eduardo Gloria is the Chief Executive Officer of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Venice.
Dr. Robert Senkewicz, Ph.D., is a Professor of History Emeritus of Santa Clara University in California.
