July 27th, 2016

Episode 1087 of 1273 episodes

Should churches hire security to guard their doors, install metal detectors and search every visitor? It's a dilemma facing the Roman Catholic church in France after the recent attacks. Austen Ivereigh, author of a biography of Pope Francis, and Father Christopher Jamison, Director of the Roman Catholic National Office for Vocation, discuss how churches can protect themselves.
