Last night on Lawrence O'Donnell's MSNBC show "The Last Word," we discussed Nuns on the Bus, Catholic social teaching and Jesus's invitation to care for the poor in a five-minute interview. That segment can be found here. After the show, we continued our conversation on his "Very Last Word" segment, recorded in the hallway with a hand-held camera. The Boston-born O'Donnell, a proud product of Catholic school education (taught by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Springfield, Mass.) invited me into a wide-ranging conversation that touched upon development of a mature personal faith life, the contribution of women religious to the church, the workings of the Holy Spirit in the magisterium and in the People of God, and a great many other topics, which you can see below.
