Episode details

I recently had the opportunity to host a conversation with Michael O’Loughlin on his recent book Hidden Mercy: AIDS, Catholics, and the Untold Stories of Compassion in the Face of Fear. We talked about how Catholics were at the forefront of both stigmatizing those with HIV and AIDS, and also at the forefront of offering compassion and care. We discussed where the Church can move forward today. And we touched on the importance of remembering our histories. You can listen to the audio above, or you can watch the recorded video here.

It was an honor and a privilege to be able to talk with Mike about his book in the Twin Cities. I hope to be able to do it again for his next book!
