Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on June 29, 2018
4:00 – An Undivided Heart: The Life of St Aloysius Gonzaga
Saint Aloysius Gonzaga was a prince of the Holy Roman Empire who renounced his titles and wealth to serve God and the Church as a member of the Society of Jesus. While he lived a short life and is honored as the patron saint of youth, Saint Aloysius invites all Christians to reflect on how they are living their unique vocations to be witnesses to Christ. We look at his life with Br Silas Henderson.
4:40 – Return to Order
We are experiencing social decay, and it manifests itself in many ways. It can be seen in the breakdown of the family and community. It can be experienced in the frenetic intemperance of hectic lifestyles, the frenzied activity of economic markets and the abuse of technology and social media. Above all, there is the abandonment of God and His law and the increasing public recognition of satanic acts, symbols and ideas. Can we fix it? We talk with John Horvat.
5:00 – The Meaning of a Free Economy
What is the connection between government regulation and a free economy? How do the US and the UK differ in their understandings and applications of this relationship? We talk with Phil Booth.
5:20 – An Introduction to Dorothy Day
In her early days, Dorothy Day lived a life of darkness that included an abortion and a suicide attempt. But she eventually found Christ and answered the call to bring God’s Mercy to others. She founded the Catholic Worker movement and established Houses of Hospitality and other charity outreaches. As she moves toward canonization, Terrence Wright takes a look at her life and thought.
