On Being Tumblr

On Being Tumblr

On Being with Krista Tippett is a public radio project delving into the human side of news stories + issues. Curated + edited by senior editor Trent Gilliss.

We publish guest contributions. We edit long; we scrapbook. We do big ideas + deep meaning. We answer questions.

We've even won a couple of Webbys + a Peabody Award.

James S. Martin — probably better known as Stephen Colbert’s resident priest — explains how Pope Francis’s Jesuit heritage has infused the first year of his papacy. Whether you’re interested in the Argentine or not, this is an excellent tutorial on what it means to follow the Ignatian rule.

A dispatch from our former intern Megan Bender, who’s in Rome: 
"I just got back from the Wednesday service. I must say, although I do not identify myself with the Catholic faith, being in his presence and seeing him kiss the foreheads of children in the audience brought tears to my eyes (along with other tiny elderly Italian ladies!) 
This was the closest I could get, as everyone was cheering, ‘Papa’ and pushing to get closer.”
