A year ago, Pope Francis invited us to see the era we're living in now as a "place of metanoia." How do we heed these words in the wake of all that has happened since? As we await a post-pandemic future, let's not let this moment of critical reflection slip away from us—let's grapple with grief, anger, and metanoia.

Expanding on our November special issue, “The Varieties of Religious Communities Today,” this webinar, grounded en lo Cotidiano, seeks to examine how the charisms of the Church dialogue with our everyday experiences and what it means to build sustainable Christian communities.
