Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on February 15, 2019
4:00 – Catholics Rally in DC for a Worthy Shepherd
We continue to see examples of the laity taking co-responsibility for the Church as they realize their faith is too precious to leave in the hands of corrupt clergy. If you’re in the Washington, DC area you can join fellow Catholics tomorrow, Saturday, to send a message to the Holy See that the Church needs a worthy shepherd to oversee the Archdiocese of DC. The rally is Saturday at 2 at the Papal Nunciature. Donna Bethell of Catholic Laity for Orthodox Bishops joins us.
4:20 – The Faith of Whitney Houston
February 11 was the anniversary of Whitney Houston’s death. Whitney was the most-awarded female artist of all time and has been ranked among the greatest voices ever. Her rendition of the Star Spangled Banner at the 1991 Super Bowl has become the benchmark for singers who perform the song. But not many realize she was also a woman of faith. We talk with Jetro da Silva, the man who led her in Bible studies.
5:00 – Michigan Laity Take Action Against Corrupt Clergy
Gaylord Diocesan Watch is a newly-launched organization in Gaylord, MI that is working to bring justice for victims of priestly sexual abuse and misconduct. They’re currently dealing with a case where a young priest has accused a fellow clergyman of unwanted physical contact and harassment. We talk with Dr Richard Brenz
5:20 – The Coddling of the American Mind
Something has been going wrong on many college campuses in the last few years. Speakers are shouted down. Social gatherings are accused of promoting Cultural Appropriation. Students and professors say they are walking on eggshells and are afraid to speak honestly. You may remember some schools offering coloring books to students after Trump’s election. But despite all these efforts to make students feel “safer,” rates of anxiety, depression, and suicide are rising—on campus as well as nationally. How did this happen? We talk with Greg Lukianoff.
