4:20 – Who Will Defend Catholic Education?
Recent lawsuits by teachers fired from Catholic schools are part of a growing threat to Catholic education. Our schools and colleges increasingly face harmful lawsuits, legislation, the loss of accreditation, and social rejection if they do not fall in line with ideologies that deny the nature of marriage, sexuality, even human life itself. Catholic education is the Church’s most important means of evangelization. Is every Catholic educator and bishop prepared to defend it? Patrick Reilly is our guest.
4:40 – What is Happening at the JPII Institute?
More than 150 students and alumni at the Pontifical John Paul II Institute in Rome have signed a letter saying that newly approved statutes will undermine the institute’s mission and identity. In response, Msgr Pierangelo Sequeri, president of the institute, says the changes are a move in the right direction. What’s going on? We talk with JD Flynn.
5:00 – John 6 and my Journey to the Church
David Sanborn grew up in a family of missionaries, and from an early age was taught to have a personal relationship with Jesus. As he pursued a career in theater he found a passion for Biblical roles but felt God was calling him to something more. He eventually became a minister, where his studies of John 6 showed him where the Spirit was guiding him. He joins us.
