Fall 2015 marked the fiftieth anniversary of the birth of a new relationship between the Catholic Church and the Jewish People.  In September, the Philadelphia Jewish and Catholic communities gathered on the campus of Saint Joseph's University to celebrate what Pope Francis has called "our journey friendship." They dedicated an original sculpture by local artist Joshua Koffman that depicts "Synagoga and Ecclesia in Our Time." Pope Francis himself came to view and bless the artwork soon after. Join us as Dr. Philip Cunningham, Professor of Theology at SJU describes the remarkable interfaith rapprochement that the sculpture portrays and his interactions with Pope Francis.
