4:20 – An Intimate Look at the Lives of Coptic Martyrs
It’s one of the most iconic images of ISIS’ reign: 21 young Coptic Chrisitan men, kneeling on a remote beach, surrounded by masked killers. The men died with Christ’s name on their lips and, though their story may have been displaced in the West, in their hometown they are beloved martyrs. Martin Mosebach has met with their families and he shares their stories.
4:40 –We need to end the codependancy in the Church
Classically, Catholicism identifies three “states” in which the Church exists: the Church militant, the Church expectant and the Church triumphant. Unfortunately, a fourth ecclesiological state has recently emerged: the Church co-dependent. It’s a phenomenon rooted in the belief that loving someone means never provoking conflict, and is seen throughout the abuse crisis. We talk with Greg Popcak.
5:00 –Economic Roundup
The US Economy is currently healthy, but there are a number of major stories that require monitoring. Brexit is the most notable, as well as ongoing tensions between the US and China. We take a look at the latest with Brian Milligan.
5:20 – The Past and Present of the Legion of Christ
Marcial Maciel, the founder of the Legion of Christ, was for years known as one of the greatest fundraisers in the Church. But he was living a double life, abusing seminarians in his care, maintaining a relationship with an underage woman and fathering multiple children. Fr Jaime Rodriguez has been tasked with uncovering the full story of his scandal and he joins us with what he is learning, how the Legion has responded and explains the role of Charisms in the Legion.
