Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on May 30, 2019
4:00 – Sign of Contradiction brings St. Francis’ Life to the Big Screen
The film Sign of Contradiction, about the life of St. Francis of Assisi, will be showing at the Redford Theater in Detroit on June 6, 2019. This special screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Fr Dave Pivonka, the new President of Franciscan University. We talk with Lorrie Peck about the event and how she is helping bring Catholic stories to the big screen and more.
4:20 – Answering the “Hiddenness” of God
The issue of the hiddenness of God can pose a real problem for even the most faithful Christians. If God is all-loving and all-powerful, why doesn’t He reveal Himself to us more plainly? Wouldn’t that answer the questions of skeptics and doubters? We talk with Karlo Broussard.
5:00 – Jan Hus and the Hussite Wars
May 30 marks the end of the Hussite Wars, 15th-century conflicts between the Christian Hussites and the combined forces of the Holy Roman Empire, the Papacy, and European Monarchs loyal to the Church. It’s a little-known but fascinating story that revolves around the teachings of the reformer Jan Hus. We learn more from Bill Cook.
