Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on May 13, 2019
4:00 – “No Greater Love” – Remembering the Sacrifice of Kendrick Castillo in the STEM Shooting
When Sara Haynes heard about the shooting at STEM High School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado on Tuesday, she prayed. She’s a former Catholic school teacher and knew some of her former students now attended the high school. She soon learned that the lone casualty of the shooting was a former student, Kendrick Castillo. Kendrick died while charging the shooter to save his friends.
4:20 – The Beauty of the Eastern Rite Churches
St John Paul II famously referred to the Eastern and Western Rites as the two lungs of the Church. Fr. Thomas Loya joins us with a look at these rites, what makes them unique, and how they contribute to the life of Christ’s Church.
5:00 – The Theology of Fatima
We’re celebrating the feast of Our Lady of Fatima. We all know the story, but what does it mean? Dr. Robert Fastiggi, an expert of the Fatima apparitions, joins us with a systematic theologian’s look at what he calls the “most prophetic” of the recent Marian apparitions.
5:40 – Christian Persecution ‘Growing in Scale and Intensity’ Worldwide

The initial findings show that an estimated one-third of the world’s population suffers from religious persecution in some form, with Christians being the most persecuted group. We talk with KV Turley.
