Description: A Wisconsin priest revealed to his congregation during recent Sunday Mass that he is gay. According to reports, his announcement was met with thunderous applause and he has been well-received by local media. What is the role of a priest, and how should they present themselves to their congregation and the world? Al takes a look.
Description: We've all heard the phrase "the family that prays together stays together," but have we ever thought about who coined the phrase? It's credited to Fr. Patrick Peyton, better known worldwide as the Rosary Priest. Fr. Peyton founded several organizations dedicated to strengthening the family and spreading the Gospel, including Holy Cross Family Ministries and Family Theater Productions. On December 18, Pope Francis recognized his heroic virtue and declared him "Venerable." Fr. David Guffey joins us with a look at the work and life of Fr Peyton.
