4:00 – Free at Last: Andrew Brunson Finally Comes Home
After more than two years, Andrew Brunson has finally been released from Turkey and is back in the US. The Turkish court found him guilty on bogus charges related to the 2016 coup, but credited him for good behavior and time served. This weekend, he met with President Trump, who had been a vocal advocate for his release. We talk with Derya Little.
4:20 – Enrich Your Prayer Life with the Contemplative Rosary
Have you ever struggled to pray the rosary? Do distractions pull you away from the prayers, or does your mind wander between Hail Marys and Our Fathers? Building on the wisdom of Teresa of Avila, whose feast we celebrated yesterday, and JPII, whose papacy began on this day in 1978, Connie Rossini joins us with tips.
4:40 – Memories of JPII
On this day in 1978, John Paul II began his papacy. Fr. Kazimierz Chwalek remembers the day well and even met the then-Cardinal during his altar server days. Fr Kaz shares his memories with us.
5:00 – Catholic Answers School of Apologetics
We talk with Trent Horn and Karlo Broussard about a new school of apologetics and how to answer common questions from non-Catholics.
4:20 – Youth Synod Update + Francis Canonizes New Saints
The Youth Synod is in full swing in Rome. Yesterday, the head of Vatican communications announced the final document will be voted on “part by part,” requiring a 2/3 majority for each section, before being forwarded on to Pope Francis. The voting will take place on October 27, just before the end of the assembly. Matthew Bunson gives us the latest on the Synod and also takes a look at the newest saints who were canonized on Sunday.
