Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on October 14, 2019
4:00 – Bobby Reyes Update
Supporters of Bobby Reyes along with his family continue to work for his transfer out of University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. The 14-year old patient who suffered a brain injury after an asthma attack that led to a “brain death” diagnosis continues to show signs of life. A hearing will be held tomorrow at Washtenaw County Trial Court in Ann Arbor at 10:00 AM and Bobby Schindler, brother of Terri Schiavo, will be in attendance. Sarah Lynn Jones, Bobby Reyes’ mother, joins us with more.
4:20 – The 99: A New System for Evangelization
What is life like at your parish? Does your parish struggle to bring in new people? Do you see the same faces at every event? Do you have a hard time finding volunteers? Are your young people disappearing? Your parish can be different. Mark Hart joins us with a look at the 99, a new system for Evangelization.
5:00 – More Thoughts on Brain Death
We have been looking at the issue of brain death and the Catholic response to the ethical issues involved as we cover the case of Bobby Reyes. What is the definition of brain death? Can people come back from it? Answering these questions also means understanding the medical and spiritual meaning of death. Dr Steve Doran, a practicing neurosurgeon, joins us.
