4:20 –Study Shows That ‘Hookup Culture’ Is a Myth. Is it?
We have heard over and over again for the last few years that young adults don’t have time to invest in relationships and therefore are treating their romantic lives with reckless abandon and having sex with random strangers. But a new study published in the Journal of Sex Research says that he sexual practices of millennials aren’t that different from those of their parents. We talk about that study with Mark Regnerus, author of “Premarital Sex in America.”

5:20 – Pope Francis eyes religious reconciliation on trip to Holy Land
It sounds a little far-fetched and for some purists perhaps unthinkable: A pope, a rabbi and a sheik decide to travel to the Holy Land and follow in the steps of Jesus. But that is just one of the groundbreaking aspects of Pope Francis’ three-day visit to the Middle East that starts on Saturday (May 24), a visit in which he hopes to shore up interfaith dialogue, strengthen diplomatic relations and find new ways to build peace. The Argentina-born pope will be accompanied by colleagues Rabbi Abraham Skorka and Sheik Omar Abboud, both from Buenos Aires. It is the first time a pope’s official delegation has included members of other faiths on an overseas trip. We talk to Fr. Mitch Pacwa about the Pope’s trip and what it will entail.
