Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on April 5, 2019
4:00 – Francis’ Post-Synodal Exhortation
The Vatican has published Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation Christus Vivit, a follow-up to last October’s Synod on Youth. In the document, which runs to almost 35,000 words and 299 paragraphs, the Holy Father encourages young people to live lives of holiness, “dream great things” and to listen to the wisdom of the elderly. We’ll take a look with Pete Burak of id916.
4:40 – What Happens to the Children of Priests?
As the Church confronts the sins of clergy sexual abuse, the stories of the ‘children of the ordained’ are increasingly being told as well. What can be done to ensure these children are properly cared for? What should become of the priests who father them? We talk with Vincent Doyle, a son of a priest, who is the director of an organization that focuses on this cause.
5:00 – How do we Evangelize our Youth?
We continue our look at Pope Francis’ post-Syndoal Apostolic Exhortation on Youth with Mark Hart. What does Pope Francis say? How is the Church engaging young people? Mark shares his thoughts.

For persons experiencing romantic desires for the same sex, choosing to live by a Christian sexual ethic is a place of both confusion and commitment. If desire is off-kilter, where do we direct it? Anna Carter has experienced this firsthand and she joins us.
