Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on November 6, 2018
4:00 – To Raise the Fallen: The Heroic Story of Fr Willie Doyle
Fr Willie Doyle was an Irish military chaplain who served on the front lines of WWI. He spent his days in the fields and would often spend his nights praying or writing letters to the anxious families of soldiers from both sides of the war. As we approach the anniversary of the end of the “War to End All Wars,” we talk with Dr Patrick Kenny.
4:20 – Why Catholic teaching is “Increasingly Embarrassing” to Church Leaders
Over recent decades, some Church leaders have become ever more reticent in standing up for Catholic teaching, especially when it comes to morality. Rarely do these prelates defend the unborn from the pulpit, condemn the intrinsic evil of artificial contraception, or speak out against same-sex “marriage” — topics guaranteed to bring them into conflict with the modern world. We’ve seen it before, and we saw it with last month’s Youth Synod. Why are our leaders so reluctant to speak out on key teachings? We talk with Thomas Pink.
5:00 – Religious Liberty and Health Care
Catholic who didn’t support efforts such as the Affordable Care Act or HHS Contraception Mandate have often been accused of “not caring” about others health. This, of course, is nonsense. Catholics have lead the way all over the world in caring for others – the issue in this situation concerned violations of conscience and religious liberty. Christ Medicus Foundation is groundbreaking new initiatives to help Catholics join in healthcare plans without worrying about supporting immoral acts. We talk with Mike O’Dea
5:20 – Is Catholic Clergy Sex Abuse Related to Homosexual Priests?
On Friday the Ruth Institute published a new report that dares to ask a question many are afraid to ask – what is the role of active homosexuality and homosexual subcultures in the abuse crisis? We talk with Fr Paul Sullins.
