About this Episode

Just this week Pope Francis was asked about the youth of the Church and said that "It worries me that they communicate and live in the virtual world...Their reality is that...not human contact. This is serious. We have to make young people 'land' in the real world. Touch reality." Ironically, this week we talk about the virtual world of the popular Anime Show 'Sword Art Online' (SAO). Join us as we dive into the themes and lessons of the show and discuss reality and some current trends that may seem to defy it. #WelcomeToTheAdventure
