There seems to be a divide in the Catholic Church between so-called “pro-life” Catholic and so-called “social justice” Catholics. Where did this come from? How do we heal this split? That's what Bishop Barron discusses in this episode. A listener asks how to respond when a beggar asks for money on the street.

  • 3:45 - How did the Pro-Life movement and the Social Justice movement become divided?

  • 7:00 - What does "social justice" mean in the Catholic tradition?
  • 9:15 - Should the Pro-Life and Social Justice movements be equally emphasized in the life of the Church?
  • 13:20 - How do we heal the divide between these two groups of Catholics?
  • 14:55 - How can the saints help provide a path forward?
  • 17:00 - How does Pope Francis balance the priority of these two issues?
