MTP 16: Stories of Saints in Politically Troubled Times with Meg Hunter-Kilmer
More Than Politics
In this episode Julie Varner Walks talks with Meg Hunter-Kilmer on a topic that is more explicitly Catholic than others she’s covered – but which will also have something to offer listeners of different faiths, or no faith at all: stories of saints who lived in politically troubled times.Given the divisiveness of the 2020 presidential election and how existentially threatening both sides seem to consider it, it’s good to take a longer view. The sad fact is, people have long lived under unjust political systems – systems that are as bad as, if not worse than, our current fears. In this conversation Julie and Meg consider the stories of people who lived through such times, who faced them with courage and conviction, who took them as opportunities to grow in faith, to work toward justice, to do God’s will, and to draw others closer to Him.In a conversation that was far funnier than Julie expected and which spanned four continents and several centuries, Meg speaks to us about what these holy men and women have to teach us about living through turmoil, about facing oppression, about resisting unjust systems, about speaking truth to power.Meg Hunter-Kilmer considers herself a “hobo missionary.” After two theology degrees from Notre Dame and five years as a high school religion teacher, Meg quit her job in 2012 to live out of her car and preach the Gospel to anyone who would listen. 50 states and 25 countries later, this seems to have a been a less ridiculous decision than she initially thought. Meg blogs at Pierced Hands and Aleteia and is a prolific poster on Instagram and Facebook – especially about the saints.To learn more about Meg, please visit her blog, check out her upcoming book, and follow her on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.Follow Julie on Instagram and Facebook, and visit www.thesewallsblog.com/morethanpolitics to learn more about this podcast.Theme music is by purple-planet.com

Who do you do know who lives out of their car, drives around talking about Jesus, writes books, and knows ALL the things about ALL the Saints? If you said, MEG HUNTER-KILMER then you are correct! In the Catholic world Meg is known for living outside of the box and being the answer gal for all things pertaining to the Saints. However, there is a lot more to Meg than just being a human encyclopedia about people who the Catholic Church have declared in Heaven. That is why today’s interview is fantastic because Meg talks about things and goes to places that is out of the box for her. When someone has dedicated their life to exploring certain subjects and then people only want to hear about that it can be challenging to share outside those expectations. Meg does this with grace and ease. If you think you know Meg I challenge you to meet her again. You will learn things about her that will surprise you. And if you don’t know who this self-proclaimed “Hobo for Christ” is, then I invite you to get comfy, this is a great story that just gets better. P.S. Happy (almost) ALL SAINTS & ALL SOULS Day! Seems fitting to air this episode now…since Meg is the leading Saints expert in all our social media feeds.

Olivia sits (zooms) with Meg Hunter Kilmer and talks about Meg's love of Scripture. We cover Meg's new book on the saints, her love of the Eucharist, how she's read the Bible cover to cover 19 times, and what some potential obstacles are that stop women from really delving into the Word of God. Meg is inspiring, funny, and so incredibly knowledgeable about Scripture. You will enjoy this episode and I hope you feel inspired to begin really immersing yourself in the Word of God in the Bible. Also- Meg says it's ok to mark up your Bible. So don't be afraid, dust it off, and take out a highlighter and some pens and let's get to work!
