Common Era: Changed by the Margins (Episode 05)

Aug 02 2021, 08:43 AM

Pope Francis would be one of the influential Catholic voices in recent years reiterating the need to step outside our known world, and reframe it through the eyes of those on the margins of society. It’s an idea that lies at the heart of the Passionist movement. Nicholas Postlethwaite from the Passionists, and post-evangelical poet David Benjamin Blower talk about the places they’ve lived – and while admittedly speaking from their own experience, they discuss their attempts to adopt a new narrative, where they themselves are not at the centre. They talk about how that’s changed them, as well as discussing the politics involved in self-awareness, privilege and ideology.

Common Era: Spirituality in an Age of Change is a new short-run podcast series from Passionists. Find out more at commonerapodcast.com.
