4:00 – Thousands of Catholics Show We’re Made for Happiness

14,000 Catholics packed the Breslin Center at Michigan State University on Saturday, the high point of a fantastic day celebrating the fact that we are made for a happiness that is not of this earth. Participants also had the chance to join in a four-mile Eucharistic procession and hear talks from some great Catholic speakers. Craig Pohl joins us with more.

5:00 – New China Deal: Vatican to Recognize Illicitly Ordained Bishops

An expected agreement between the Holy See and People’s Republic of China was signed on Saturday. The deal concerns the nomination of bishops and Vatican spokesman Greg Burke said it is the beginning, not the end, of a process of dialogue. We don’t know many details yet, save for one major one: Pope Francis will recognize seven illicitly ordained bishops. We get more from Steve Mosher.

5:20 – Waiting with Purpose

Our culture seems to gravitate between two extremes: we either despise waiting, grumbling to ourselves and fidgeting with our phones as we sit in line at a red light or the bank – or we revel in laziness, embracing the down time as an entitlement. Waiting is a recurring theme in the Bible – Noah waited for the waters to recede, Abraham waited for a son, the Israelites waited to enter the Promised Land, and now we wait for the return of Christ. Jeannie Ewing joins us to talk why God makes us wait and how he speaks to us in those times when nothing seems to be happening.
