Fr. James Martin, ‘chaplain’ for Stephen Colbert, to speak Oct. 25
Loyola University New Orleans will host a free public talk by Jesuit Father James Martin, a noted author and perhaps one of the most well-known Jesuit priests in the nation, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. at the Louis J. Roussel Performance Hall on the second floor of the Communications/Music Complex on Loyola’s main campus.
Through his writing on religious matters, Father Martin has attracted nearly 45,000 Twitter followers, and he has appeared as “chaplain” for the popular late-night comedy program, “The Colbert Report,” with Stephen Colbert.
Father Martin’s talk, which will invite believers and seekers alike to experience Jesus through Scripture, prayer and travel, is part of Loyola’s Presidential Guest Series. He will hold a book signing after the talk.
Father Martin is editor-at-large of America, the Jesuits’ national Catholic magazine, and New York Times bestselling author of “The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything.” In his latest book, Martin brings the Gospels to life in “Jesus: A Pilgrimage.”
Father Martin’s talk also will be streamed live online at president.loyno.edu/guestseries.
