Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on April 9, 2018
4:00 – 101 Fun Facts about the Vatican
Thousands of Catholics flock to the Vatican and its iconic basilica each year. But what do you really know about this great basilica and the city that houses it? We’ll talk with Fr Jeffrey Kirby.
4:40 – I Am the Handmaid of the Lord
We normally celebrate the Feast of the Annunciation on March 25, exactly nine months before Christmas. But thanks to Holy Week the USCCB has transferred the celebration of the Feast to today. We’ll talk with Tim Staples about what the angel said to Mary and her response that changed the course of history.
5:00 – The Angry Christian
Is anger always bad? After all, wrath is one of the Seven Deadly Sins. But, used properly, anger can be a useful emotion. It is our anger at injustice and evil that can lead to change; our anger at the loss of souls that leads us to evangelize. We’ll talk with Bert Ghezzi.
5:20 – Psalm Basics for Catholics
For more than two thousand years, Christians have sung, chanted, and prayed the psalms, a practice of worship inherited from our Jewish ancestors in faith. Yet we don’t often take the time to step back and see how the psalms fit into the rest of Scripture and the overall story of Salvation. We’ll talk with John Bergsma.
