Thankfully, Kansas City’s Archbishop Joseph Naumann joins Mary to help us navigate the confusion.


In this episode, Archbishop Naumann unpacks the Fiducia Supplicans document that has sparked worldwide backlash and controversy among the faithful.


He also addresses the death penalty question, masculinity in the Church, and his own family’s touching story of forgiveness in the face of violence –  it’s all here on the EDIFY Podcast!
