Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on June 11, 2020
4:00 – Former Swiss Guard Remembers John Paul II
With their iconic uniforms and specialized duty, the Swiss Guards capture a special place in the Catholic imagination. Mario Enzler was one of them, serving John Paul II from 1989 to 1993. He joins us with his memories of the work and the witness of the future saint.
4:20 – What You Never Knew about St Anthony
Most of us know St Anthony of Padua as the Patron Saint of Lost Things and we appeal to him when we can’t find our keys or math homework. But there is so much more to him and he is even a doctor of the Church. We look at his life with Fr Pat McCloskey
5:00 – Alleged Theodore McCarrick victim says he is helping fact-check abuse dossier
An anonymous alleged sexual abuse victim of former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick says he and other alleged victims have been working with the Vatican to fact-check the comprehensive dossier on McCarrick’s misdeeds. We get the details with JD Flynn and also look at what Archbishop Gregory knew about President Trump’s visit to the JPII Shrine.
5:20 – The Faces of the OKC Bombings
On June 11, 2001, Timothy McVeigh was executed for perpetrating the Oklahoma City bombing, which killed 168 people and injured hundreds more. He’s the first name that comes to mind when we talk of this horrible event, but we often neglect to look at his victims. Each had their own story, family, hopes, dreams and in many cases faith. Maria Scaperlanda shares their stories.
