June 13, 2014 Length: 33:21
In this final episode of Reflection 15, Fr. John discusses the thirteenth-century popes Innocent III and Gregory IX, showing the close connection between their efforts to advance papal supremacy on the one hand and direct crusades against the Orthodox on the other. He concludes the reflection by noting the recent meeting of Pope Francis and Patriarch Bartholomew and placing it within the context of centuries of cultural division between east and west.
"AFR is an oasis for me in a troubling world of uncertainty. I listen often and my children love to listen, too. We are going through a very difficult time right now—being able to tune into AFR gives me and my children much comfort. Thank you for all that you do."
