Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on February 14, 2020
4:00 – Detroit Parishioners Sue Archdiocese Over Ousted Priest
We’ve spoken before about Fr. Eduard Perrone, a Detroit priest who was removed from minsitry last summer after he was accused of sexual abuse of two minors. Now, 20 members of his Assumption Grotto parish have filed a lawsuit against the Archdiocese of Detroit for emotional distress they say is caused by the removal of an innocent priest. We talk with their lawyer Chris Kolomjec.
4:40 – Make a Consecration to St Joseph
St Joseph is a model for all of us, especially husbands and fathers. Fr Donald Calloway has developed a 33-day Consecration to St Joseph, and if you start the Consecration this Sunday it will end on his feast March 19. Fr Calloway joins us.
5:00 – Defending the Pro-Life Position Even in Hard Cases
At the Golden Globes a few weeks ago, Michelle Williams credited abortion for her professional success and allowing her to be who she is. As Pro-Lifers, how do we respond to a claim like this and accusations we want to limit women’s access to successful careers? We talk with Trevor Pollo about answering this and other tricky abortion questions.
5:20 – Pope Francis and the Event of Encounter
Since being elected to the Chair of St. Peter on March 13, 2013, Pope Francis has given unique shape to the meaning of the new evangelization with his emphasis on the concept of “encounter.” What does he mean by this and how does it relate to the Co-Responsibility of the Laity? We talk with John Cavadini.
