Long Description: 
Assessing Pope Francis's Visit - Host Bob Abernethy and Managing Editor Kim Lawton lead a conversation on the impact of the Pope's actions and messages with John Carr, director of Georgetown University's Initiative on Catholic Social Thought, and Pat Zapor, who covered the trip for Catholic News Service. The YMCA Jerusalem Youth Chorus - Despite all the violence in Jerusalem, Chorus Director Micah Hendler created a group of thirty Christian, Jewish and Muslim high school students who live in both West and East Jerusalem, devoted to both music and dialogue. Hendler believes the chorus can create a path to friendship and even peace, providing an "oasis" from all the "insanity" around them. We caught up with the Chorus recently on its first North American tour.
