4:00 – Heroic Stories from the Great Halifax Explosion
We recently discussed the Great Halifax Explosion, the 1917 eruption of a munitions ship that was the largest manmade explosion in history until the atomic bomb. The 100th anniversary of the tragedy was on December 6 of this year. John U. Bacon joins us with a closer look at the tragedy and the extraordinary, but forgotten, stories of heroism that emerged in its wake.
5:00 – Rest in Peace, Fr. Andrew Apostoli
Fr. Andrew Apostoli, a beloved speaker and retreat master who co-founded the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, passed away this morning at the age of 75. His fellow friar, Br. Angelus Montgomery, joins us to honor his memory.
5:20 – Rediscovering God as a Stranger
