4:20 – A Midsummer Night's Dream
A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of the classic plays by William Shakespeare.. Believed to have been written between 1590 and 1596, it portrays the events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens, Thesues, and Hippolyta. These include the adventures of four young Athenian lovers and a group of six amateur actors, who are controlled and manipulated by the fairies who inhabit the forest in which most of the play is set. The play, categorized as a Comedy, is one of Shakespeare's most popular works for the stage and is widely performed across the world. Literary expert Henry Russell is here to exegete the play.
5:00 – Pope Francis and the Reform of the Laity

It also will involve a thorough reform of the laity, since some of the cancers the cardinals elected him to confront in Rome have metastasized throughout Christ’s mystical body. Fr. Roger Landry is here to discuss Pope Francis and the Reform of the Laity.
