Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on October 4, 2017
Special guest host Gary Michuta
4:00 – The Meaning of Fatima, 100 Years Later
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady to the shepherd children at Fatima, which began on May 13 and ended on October 13. The message of Fatima highlights many central truths and devotions of the Catholic faith, with a special emphasis on the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Robert Fastiggi joins us with more.
4:20 – The Real Catholic Story: How to Answer Anti-Catholic Historians
Anti-Catholics like to paint Church teachings in a way that makes them seem vain, backward, or superstitious, all in the hope of drawing people out of the Faith and into sects or unbelief. Catholic apologists fight back with facts and sound arguments. But there’s another area where the Church’s enemies tell their own false story of Catholicism: its history. Whether it’s from the media, in classrooms, or out of the mouths of pastors and politicians, we’ve all heard a version of Catholic history filled with unrelenting violence, ignorance, worldliness, and bigotry. Steve Weidenkopf joins us with the real story.
5:00 – Coming Home: The Anatomy of a Conversion
Conversion stories and testimonies bring us inside the lives of others and give us first-hand looks at their experiences. Through his work with the Coming Home Network, Marcus Grodi has heard hundreds of stories of men and women from all backgrounds who found fulfillment in the Catholic faith. He joins us with a look at why so many have been drawn to the Church.
