Shownotes

We talk today about the family, especially the expansive notion of the extended family and what this means for who we are as individuals, who we are responsible for, and what this means for our parishes. We are joined by Dr. Nichole Flores is an assistant professor of religious studies at the University of Virginia. She speaks, writes and teaches about the significance of Catholic and Latinx theology and ethics in plural social, political, and ecclesial contexts. She has published academic articles broadly and also popularly on such publications as America: The Jesuit Review of Faith & Culture. She is currently at work on her first book, To Lift Up the Lowly: The Aesthetics of Solidarity. In 2015, Dr. Flores was honored with the Catherine Mowry LaCugna Award for the best academic essay in Catholic theology from the Catholic Theological Society of America. Recently she joined us as a keynote speaker for the Liturgy and Domestic Church conference at Notre Dame. ------ Live: www.redeemerradio.com Follow Redeemer Radio on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram: @RedeemerRadio Follow McGrath Institute for Church Life on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram: @McGrathND Subscribe to the Podcast: iTunes | Google Play | SoundCloud
