Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on December 13, 2018
4:00 – Be Someone’s Miracle this Christmas
You can be someone’s miracle this Christmas by giving a gift that will have a lasting impact. The Cross Catholic Christmas Catalog is a way to select much-needed items to be sent to the poorest of the poor, who need them so desperately. We talk with Jim Cavnar.
4:20 – The Real Story of the Magi
We’re all familiar with the story of the Magi – the three kings who rode camels from the east, following the star, to bring gifts to the Christ child. But Matthew’s Gospel never gives their number, never says how they got there, never mentions their names and doesn’t even refer to the star. Some modern Biblical scholars have dismissed them as a myth. Who were the magi? We talk with Fr Dwight Longenecker.
5:00 – Why the Pope Matters
Without the ongoing ministry of St Peter, the Church would suffer the same divisions and contradictions other Christians have experienced firsthand. The teachings of Christ, handed down from the apostles, would be subject to arbitrary and relative interpretation. What is the pope’s role as leader of the Church? Why does it Matter? We talk with Steve Ray.
