Faith and Labor is a podcast video series exploring the history of Catholic Social Teachings and how it can be used to bridge divisions and guide humanity to solve the great challenges facing the working class.
Hosted by John Andrechak of Laborlines and Evan Matthew Papp of Empathy Media Lab, they discuss history, scripture, encyclicals, current events, and how faith and love is needed to strengthen solidarity and heal a world in disarray.
Episode 3 focuses on Gaudium Et Spes, which means “Joy and hope” and and was published after the Second Vatican Council.
We also discuss current headlines related to Pope Francis visit to Iraq, the Vatican stance against same-sex unions, and the Catholic Labor Network’s support for the Pro Act.
We would love to hear your feedback, ideas, and suggested guests for future shows, as we seek to promote what Pope Francis described in Fratelli Tutti as a more just and fraternal world where “Love shatters the chains that keep us isolated and separate; in their place, it builds bridges.”
