Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on September 29, 2020
4:00 – Al Faithful Citizenship
4:20 – The Colonial Achievements of Revolutionary Catholics
The American Revolution created a unique opportunity for Colonial Catholics. Catholic loyalists were few and many of the French officers assisting in the Revolution were Catholic. The situation allowed Colonial Catholics to create a new and better place for themselves in the emerging American republic. Sheila Starr joins us with more.
5:00 – Feast of the Archangels
5:20 – BLM And ‘1619 Project’ Scrub Radical Beliefs From Their Websites
For years now, and especially since the summer, we’ve been talking about the importance of distinguishing between the phrase that Black Lives Matter, and the organization that goes by that name. Recently, Black Lives Matter and the 1619 Project both edited their websites to remove controversially radical statements about their beliefs. This should be recognized as merely a public relations concession, not an ideological one. Emily Jashinsky joins us.
5:40 – Novena for our Nation begins TODAY
Who can doubt that our country is in serious trouble and straining at the seams? From COVID-19 to riots, from political animosity to overturned and degraded values. Religious freedom is in danger. Churches have been desecrated and statues vandalized. We need help. And the only help that will be effective at this time is heavenly help. That’s why EWTN is starting a Novena to the Mother of God today. Fr Frederick Miller joins us.
