April 27, 2023 — In 2021, two Jesuits who had just been ordained priests were missioned to serve migrant communities on the U.S.-Mexico border in Brownsville, Texas. Soon after they arrived, Jesuit Fathers Brian Strassburger and Louie Hotop agreed that there were so many incredible people and stories they were encountering that they just had to share them with the world through a podcast. Now in its fourth season, It’s the Jesuit Border Podcast has welcomed some amazing guests with stories of fortitude, compassion and courage.
In this episode, Fathers Hotop and Strassburger shift from interviewers to interviewees. Asking the questions this time around is the Jesuit author Fr. Jim Martin, who leads Louie and Brian through an Ignatian examen of their ministry in Brownsville over the past two years. It’s a fabulous interview.
