On Saturday we celebrated the Feast of the Queenship of Mary. How does this feast tie to the recent celebration of the Assumption? What is the Scriptural basis for the celebration? We talk with Steve Ray.
4:20 – The Lost Prophecy of Malachi
How did the ancient Christians know who Messiah would be? One sign was detailed in the first chapter of Malachi: “From the rising of the sun to its setting my name is great among the nations, and in every place incense is offered to my name, and a pure offering; for my name is great among the nations, says the LORD of hosts.” We talk with Mike Aquilina about how the early church was defined by Malachi’s oracle and how they found identity in the Eucharist.
5:00 – Social Science Apologetics: Seven moral rules found all around the world
