Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on May 21, 2020
4:00 – Discovering God Together: Building the Domestic Church
Research shows again and again that when families openly live and share their faith together, their marriages are stronger, children and parents get along better, and children are less likely to succumb to drugs, alcohol, promiscuity, or negative peer pressure. We talk with Greg and Lisa Popcak about how you can transform your family into a joyful place where each member experiences life as a gift from God.
4:40 – How John Paul II reminded us that liberty and truth are inseparable
Many remember Pope John Paul II as playing a crucial role in Eastern Europe’s liberation from Marxist tyranny. But he also insisted that liberty needed to be grounded in and guided by the truth knowable via reason and faith. If freedom and truth become separated—as they most certainly have in many people’s minds in our own time—we not only end up with an unhealthy and dangerous association of liberty with moral relativism. We also open the door to those who claim that the truth is whatever the most powerful or the loudest say it is. Sam Gregg joins us with more.
5:00 – Kresta Comments: Feast of the Ascension
5:10 – Red Rose Rescues Continue, Despite Pandemic
A major criticism of the COVID lockdowns has been that abortion clinics are allowed to operate in several states while other businesses and services are labeled non-essential. Monica Miller and her Red Rose Rescue teams have continued their work, leading to several arrests last week. Monica and Fr Stephen Imbarrato join us.
5:20 – In Search of a Morally Licit Vaccine
States are beginning to open up, but several governors have stated things won’t fully return to normal until there is a vaccine available. Several pharmaceutical companies have been working around the clock to develop such a vaccine, but Catholics are concerned that the vaccines may be developed from cell lines that use tissue from aborted babies. We look at the problem with Fr. Tad Pacholczyk.
5:40 – Taking Theology of the Body Beyond Sexuality
We’ve been celebrating John Paul II’s 100th birthday, and one of his most famous works is his Theology of the Body. Unfortunately, when many people think of this great work they only apply it to human sexuality and don’t realize its application to all parts of the human experience. David Michael Phelps joins us.
