4:00 – The Battle that Saved the Christian West
October 7, 1571 is not a date most people know. It’s a day we now recognize as the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary and celebrates the victory at the Battle of Lepanto, which saved the Christian West from defeat at the hands of the Ottoman Turks. Chris Check joins us with more.
4:40 – House Passes Pain-Capable Abortion Ban
Earlier this week the House of Representatives passed a ban on most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. President Trump has promised to sign it; however, it is unlikely to be approved by the Senate. We’ll take a look with Monica Miller.
5:00 – Papal Choir Concludes US Tour
The Sistine Chapel choir, the oldest choir in the world, has just concluded a tour of the US. We’ll get a recap with Nora Heimann, who also takes a look at arts and Catholic education.
5:20 – Why I’m Catholic

In such an environment, why would anyone consider the Catholic Church? Brandon Vogt joins us with a twenty-first century case for the faith.
