Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on February 18, 2019
4:00 – McCarrick Dismissed from Clerical State
On Saturday the Vatican made the widely-expected announcement that Theodore McCarrick has been removed from the Clerical state. Pope Francis has recognized the “definitive nature” of the decision, meaning McCarrick has no further recourse. What happens now? We talk with Edward Pentin.
4:20 – The Faith of Abraham Lincoln
Presidents Day is upon us and we’re looking at the personal beliefs of one of our greatest, and most misunderstood, presidents – Abraham Lincoln. What did Lincoln believe? How did his understanding of God affect his vision for the Nation and his leadership during one of America’s darkest periods? We talk with Ron White.
5:00 – Phoenix from the Ashes: The Future of the Catholic Church
Fr Gabriel Richard High School is continuing its Familiaris Consortio lecture series, this time with a focus on the future of the Catholic Church as it grapples with the abuse crisis. We talk with Dr Rusty Chavey.
5:20 – The Founding Fathers and the Bible
In Colonial times, no book was more accessible or familiar than the Bible. It was by far the most alluded to and quoted source during political discourse and was well-known to the Founding Fathers. How did they use the Bible when they were founding the new nation? We’ll look at their diverse use of scripture and theology with Daniel Dreisbach.
