In Good Company: James Martin, SJ


Some have described James Martin, SJ, as "one of the nation's most beloved spiritual authors" while others have labeled him, "the most dangerous priest in America."  He is a Jesuit priest, editor at large of America magazine, and the former longtime chaplain of The Colbert Report.  He has written on a wide variety of topics include saints, spirituality, humor, Scripture, and the status of gays in the Catholic Church today.  Join us for a morning of lively discussion as we examine his life, beliefs, and writings.  We will carefully consider the sources that influence his thought as well as the impact that he has had on the contemporary American Church.
