Yesterday, Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guadio announced the final phase of an operation to topple President Maduro. Flanked by a group of soldiers in the capital city of Caracas, he urged Venezuelans to take to the streets, which they did. Last night Maduro declared the coup had been defeated. We take a look with Fr Andres Orellana, who is at the scene.

5:00 – The Catholic Practice of Mindfulness
We spoke a few weeks ago with Susan Brinkmann, who gave us an introduction to the concept of mindfulness and whether it has a role in Catholic spirituality. What role does it play in mental health practices? We talk with Dr Greg Popcak, who breaks down the differences between the concept and practice of mindfulness.
5:20 – Build the Church, Bless the Nation: Resolving a Culture in Crisis
Catholics examining the culture are probably asking themselves what has happened. Civil political discourse has gone out the window. Identity politics have reduced the value of a person to which groups they are part of. So-called abortion rights are not only tolerated – they are celebrated and aggressively pursued. Can we restore a Catholic sense of morality to the world? We talk with Bill Donohue.
