Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on March 8, 2018
4:00 – Obliged to Kill: The Battle for Conscience Protection
A court in Ontario has ruled that a patient’s desire to be euthanized trumps a doctor’s conscientious objection. Doctors there now face a cruel choice between complicity in a grievous wrong and the very real chance of legal or professional sanction. Dr. Wes Smith joins us with more.
4:20 – The Holy Martyrs of Sebaste and the History of the Turkish Church
March 9 is the Feast the 40 Holy Martyrs of Sebaste and, in the Episcopal Church, the Feast of St Gregory of Nyssa, who Catholics celebrate on January 10. Turkey has played an incredibly important role in the Church’s history from the beginning. We’ll look at the lives of Turkish saints and the history of the Turkish church with Dan Beaudoin.
5:00 – Understanding the Proverbs
Acquiring wisdom is both a human task and a divine gift. Wisdom aims at the formation of character, and there is no better guide than the Book of Proverbs. The Proverbs teach us how to be wise and self-controlled, and how to do what is honest, right and fair. Fr. Mitch Pacwa joins us with advice for getting the most out of the proverbs.
