Faith and Labor is a podcast video series exploring the history of Catholic Social Teachings and how it can be used to bridge divisions and guide humanity to solve the great challenges facing the working class.

Hosted by John Andrechak of Laborlines and Evan Matthew Papp of Empathy Media Lab, they discuss history, scripture, encyclicals, current events, and how faith and love is needed to strengthen solidarity and heal a world in disarray.

The Episode 1 Pilot focuses on the 1891 Encyclical of Pope Leo XIII titled Rerum novarum ("of revolutionary change"), or Rights and Duties of Capital and Labor, that addresses the condition of the working classes.

They also discussed the controversy caused by the president of the U.S. bishops’ conference issuing a rogue statement critical of President Biden on the day of his inauguration that was publicly condemned by the Vatican.

We would love to hear your feedback, show ideas, and suggested guests for future shows, as we seek to promote what Pope Francis described in Fratelli Tutti as a more just and fraternal world where “Love shatters the chains that keep us isolated and separate; in their place, it builds bridges.”
