Station XV: Episode 125 — Two Bishops, One Pope, 1,900 Young People and a Persecuted Minority

The 15th Station podcast

The Catholic Church in New Zealand — especially on its South Island — is celebrating the ordination of one bishop and the appointment of another. Considering there are only two bishops there, that’s a big deal. The five-year anniversary of Pope Francis is also a big deal, but how are people assessing that period? And how do young people assess the Church and its engagement with those under the age of 30? There’s more news of terrible persecution of Christians, with Rome highlighting their plight at the Colosseum. And singer Ed Sheeran doesn’t want the Colosseum, but he does have eyes for a new chapel on his UK property. Anna, James and Gavin gather for this month’s episode. Thanks for listening.
