4:00 – Kresta Comments: The Necessity of Reform
4:20 – The Problem of Clerical Sexual Misconduct
In her many years of teaching, Dr. Janet Smith has seen a lot. She has seen the wonderful fruit a strong, faithful seminary can produce – and the rot and decay a corrupt seminary can produce. Problems within the seminaries are one of the things that led to this mess we’re in. She joins us to talk about this problem of clerical sexual misconduct.
5:00 – The Universal Call to Holiness
We are made for happiness and called to holiness. The crisis in the Church – and most other problems in our culture – can be attributed to us forgetting this. How can the Universal Call to Holiness help us turn this around? Dr. Scott Hahn discusses.
5:20 – #WearGray – the Laity Responds
The Wear Gray movement is one of many lay responses to the widespread sexual crimes affecting the Catholic Church. It was born of a deep desire to bring the Church back to what is holy and sacred. The movement unites all in prayer, fasting, and penance with one heart, requesting all cardinals, bishops, and priests to humbly offer honest reparation for the sins of the Church and to act immediately to bring all criminals to swift justice, while supporting the victims and the faithful priests and religious. Co-founder Lori Carter joins us.
5:40 – Amazing Parishes Respond to the Crisis
In times of crisis, the cream rises. And that applies to our parishes as well. We talk with Pat Lencioni about the “Amazing Parishes” that are working to build the Church and bless the Nation.
