Segment 2 & 3 – Grand Getaway 
“The Corporate Travel annual Grand Getaway is a beloved tradition that nurtures the faith of all who attend. The mutual witness of our Catholic faith each year creates a very special atmosphere of fun and joy that has a profound impact on all who participate! This year, we are very privileged to welcome Kimberly and Dr. Scott Hahn, Fr. John Riccardo, and Fr. Josh Johnson!”  Fr. Josh joins Teresa to tell us all about it. 

Fr. Josh Johnson is the Director of Vocations for the Diocese of Baton Rouge as well as Pastor of Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish. He is well-known for his popular Ascension podcast Ask Father Josh as well as his Q&A video show on the Ascension Presents YouTube channel, the largest Catholic channel in English. Additionally, he has written several books with Ascension, including the best-selling Pocket Guide to Reconciliation (co-written with Fr. Mike Schmitz) and On Earth as It Is in Heaven: Restoring God’s Vision of Race and Discipleship.

Segment 4 – Transgender Ideology Is Harming Vulnerable Patients
As gender dysphoria rises among the youth in today’s society, science is revealing that the Left’s extreme “gender affirming therapies” are only harming adolescents. Recent findings from a study done by The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) reveal the Left’s “gender-affirming” therapies have not been shown to benefit adolescents with gender dysphoria; rather, adolescents have immature brains and, later on, can often regret gender-specific decisions that carry lifelong implications, such as puberty blockers and bodily surgeries.  Chris Faddis has written about this and joins us today.

Chris Faddis is co-founder and President of Solidarity HealthShare, a national not-for-profit ministry that provides an alternative way to fund health care costs while protecting and practicing Catholic beliefs.
