Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on September 27, 2017
4:00 – Illinois Bill Demands Tax-Funded Abortions
On Monday the Illinois legislature approved a bill that would ensure abortion remains legal in Illinois, even if Roe v Wade were overturned. It would also require taxpayer funding of abortion through the state’s Medicaid program. Michael New joins us with more.
4:20 – 26 Champions of the Rosary
Throughout the life of the Church, many men and women have become great saints and helped change the course of human history by the power of the rosary. We’ll look at some of their stories with Fr. Don Calloway.
5:00 – Preparing Youth for the New Evangelization
Eagle Eye Ministries’ mission is to form, unite, and inspire young Catholics for the new evangelization by deepening their relationship with Jesus Christ, through prayer, study, culture, and community. We’ll talk about it with Fr. Nathan Cromly, who also discusses an MBA program for the New Evangelization.
5:20 – Resisting the Global Contraception Push
Yesterday was World Contraception Day and the world’s richest birth control are once again pushing contraceptive access in developing countries. However, many of the women in these countries aren’t interested. Contraceptive champions Bill and Melinda Gates acknowledge this low demand, and are therefore spending money to build demand through expensive and massive public-awareness campaigns. Dr. Meg Meeker joins us to discuss the ongoing contraception push.
5:40 – Biblical Literacy begins Now
The Bible is at the Heart of Our Faith and our relationship with God. Scripture informs our beliefs and inspires our devotions. It is the living Word of God, where our Father meets with us and lovingly speaks to us. Reading the Bible should bring us closer to Christ, but understanding it is not always easy. Jeff Cavins joins us with a look at Bible literacy and the need to start educating our children in salvation history.
