Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on August 8, 2018
5:00 – Bringing Hope to Nicaragua
We’ve talked a lot about the efforts of the Catholic Church in Nicaragua, but there are US groups involved there as well – including Hope Clinic International. We talk with Brian Kennedy and Michele Holder about the work they are doing there and how you can support them.
4:20 – Thinking Like Jesus: The Psychology of a Faithful Disciple
Every family has that one person who is, for lack of a better term, “difficult.” We walk on eggshells around them to avoid confrontations and emotional outbursts. Isn’t there a better way? How do we handle these situations with Christ’s love, not human resentment? We talk with Dr Ray Guarendi.
5:00 – The Theology of Food: Understanding the Eucharist
Doctors like to say that “we are what we eat.” If we feed our body junk, we suffer the consequences. How does that apply to the Sacrificial meal of the Mass? Fr Leo Patalinghug joins us to discuss the theology of food and the Eucharist.
5:20 – Christ’s Willing Captive: A Journey from Lust to Christ
Scott McDermott’s faith journey started with Lust – which his father used in place of religion. This led him down a path to atheism and, in college, a gay lifestyle. He felt empty and turned to the writings of Flannery O’Connor, Thomas Merton and other Catholic offers. He shares his story today.
