In this final bonus episode before season 2 starts next week, Louise talks with her friend Loretto Kane about faith and prayer, connection and authenticity in the context of Archer’s accident, and the days and months that followed. They reflect on the lives touched by Archer’s story, how much we need each other, and the sustaining power of spiritual connection. Both women grew up Catholic and remain devoted to their faith, recognizing how all faiths can be a source of strength, support, and collective energy.
Loretto Kane lives in Seattle, Washington, and is an executive at Microsoft. She is also a Hospitalier of the Order of Malta in the Catholic Church, and is dedicated to serving the sick.

If you hear of another person’s tragic news and think there is really nothing you can do, please reconsider. There is something you can do. Louise asks for prayer, your prayer. See what happens when Louise texts a few friends that her family is in trouble and to pray hard. “Stay strong” or “Keep the faith” are good concepts, but see what happens when the heart is stirred being called by name. Louise’s friend, Betty Hines shared, “Even those of different faith and different religions came together because this was about someone's child.” Louise recalls a Dominican nun who taught at her high school answering her question about people of other faiths, or of no faith, telling her, “We are all called to be one”.
