AW222 Negativity Among Catholics Thwarts the Good – Among Women with Pat Gohn

In this episode:

“Among Women” Guest: Jaymie Stuart Wolfe

Pat’s guest is Jaymie Stuart Wolfe, writer of a provocative article — “Uncomfortable” — that challenges the in-fighting that can happen between members of the Church. Together we discuss the harmful effects of disparaging each other and each other’s projects with a kind of litmus Catholic test. This kind of negativity is contrary to the Christian mission. This show is a call to check our own witness, and to tend to our own efforts at reaching out to others.
