Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on July 17, 2020
4:00 – Kresta Comments: Christians in Space
The space program, especially the missions to the moon, is one of mankind’s crowning scientific achievements. But we often think of its principal players as faceless men in high-tech suits and forget that behind the helmet lies a unique person with their own stories and background. We’ll look at the stories of astronauts who professed a faith in Christ and listen to how it impacted their experiences in space.
4:20 – Teresa of Avila’s Carmelite Spirituality
After years of lukewarm religious life, St Teresa of Avila finally encountered the Lord who suffered out of love for her. Her spirituality is not about what one experiences, but about what one becomes. She does not promise any achievement of inner peace, but a relationship that this life is too small to contain. Anthony Lilles joins us for yesterday’s Feast of Our Lady of Mt Carmel
5:00 – Defending the Founding Fathers
The Founding of the American Republic is on trial. Critics say that America’s founding principles are responsible for the country’s moral and social decline because they were based on radical individual autonomy. Robert Reilly however, declares that the Founding is in fact: not guilty. He joins us tracing the ideas that made the United States, and its ordered liberty, possible.
