Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on October 5, 2017
Special Guest Host Tom Nash
4:00 – This UN Resolution is a Major Step Toward Justice for ISIS Victims
The United Nations Security Council recently adopted a significant and promising resolution on the atrocities committed by ISIS in Iraq. It’s a big step forward, but the resolution is not without controversy. Dan Philpott joins us with the details.
4:20 – Faustina: The Apostle of Divine Mercy
Today is the feast of St. Faustina Kowalska, the Apostle of Divine Mercy. We’ll talk with Fr. Chris Alar about her life, her visit with Christ, and how the Divine Mercy can help our chaotic world.
5:00 – The Five Faces of Christ
There are plenty of religious experiences to be had, but the Catholic Church says these subjective experiences are rooted in five objective ways we can know that we have encountered Christ. These five ways are not only taught in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, but in the Gospel itself. We’ll take a look with Fr. Dwight Longenecker.
5:20 – The Biblical Roots of the Priesthood
Protestants argue that there is no ministerial priesthood. Instead, they say we’re all priests, citing Peter 2:9: “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people.” Catholics argue that a ministerial priesthood does exist in the New Covenant, apart from the priesthood of all believers. What are we to make of this disagreement? What does the Bible have to say about it? We’ll talk with Karlo Broussard.
