Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on December 6, 2019
Guest Host Gary Michuta
4:00 – Prepare the Way of the Lord: John the Baptist and Advent
This Sunday’s Gospel tells the story of John the Baptist and his warning to Prepare the Way of the Lord. We look at John’s teachings as we continue our Advent preparations with Rob Corzine.
4:20 – The Basis of the Immaculate Conception
This weekend we’ll celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. William Albrecht joins us with a look at the Biblical and historical basis of the Feast and clears up some of the confusion surrounding the teaching.
5:00 – A Catholic View of Advent
In the Advent story of Matthew 1, we are told that the One who came into the world was called three names or titles: ‘Jesus’, ‘Christ’, and ‘Immanuel’. We get a Catholic view of Advent with Vern Steiner.
5:20 – Meeting the Protestant Challenge
Every Catholic has heard the challenge: “How can you believe that? Don’t you know the Bible says…” It’s a challenge we have to meet. If we can’t reconcile apparent contradictions between Scripture and Catholic teaching, how can our own faith survive? And if we can’t help our Protestant brothers and sisters overcome their preconceptions about “unbiblical” Catholic doctrines and practices, how will they ever come to embrace the fullness of the Faith? We talk with Karlo Broussard.
