I'm Maria Johnson, producer and host of Reasonably Catholic: Keeping the Faith, which airs every first, third and fifth Tuesday, from 4 to right before the Jive at Five. Tomorrow: we get reaction from three progressive Catholic groups to Pope Francis' document on the family. We'll hear from New Ways Ministry, which serves LGBT Catholics; Future Church, which seeks to enlarge the role of women in the church, among other changes; and Women's Ordination Worldwide, whose name speaks for itself. Can't listen live? Find the audio along with other bells and whistles of interest archived at www.reasonablycatholic.com.
And finally, as a UConn women's basketball fan, I'm sure I speak for all of us when I wish Coach Geno Auriemma a speedy recovery from whatever landed him in the hospital recently! Get well soon!
