Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on December 19, 2014
4:00 – #32. The War on Humans (original air 2/11)
A leading bioethicist declares that pigs have more right to live than human infants. A Harvard Law professor advocates giving cows and whales legal “standing” to sue. In support of radical depopulation measures, a famous maker of nature documentaries lambastes humans as a “plague on the Earth”. Examples like these aren’t the stuff of satire or science-fiction — they’re happening today. And as Wesley Smith reveals in the provocative new documentary The War Against Humans, they are part of an environmentalism that has become profoundly misanthropic. Wes joins us to talk about the impact of this war.
4:40 – 31. “Mother Teresa” – The Movie (original air 5/7)
The film is “Mother Teresa.” In a powerful portrayal, Golden Globe winner Olivia Hussey illuminates the life story of Mother Teresa, the selfless missionary who brought hope, love and salvation to the poorest of the poor. A shrewd diplomat and an indomitable force, Mother Teresa is unwilling to accept what others deem impossible, fearlessly fighting for the unloved and the forgotten. Her good works transcend hardships and ultimately earn her international acclaim, including the Nobel Peace prize. The small miracles and humble triumphs of Mother Teresa will inspire you in this poignant tale of a modern-day saint. We talk to Olivia Hussey.
5:00 – #30. Evangelizing Catholics: A Mission Manual for the New Evangelization (original air 6/2)
You can’t keep the faith unless you give it away. That’s a fact. To be a Christian is to be an evangelizer. When the Catholic Church calls us to a “New Evangelization,” that’s simply a reminder to us of what has always been true. The good news is: you can do it – you can evangelize – and Dr. Scott Hahn is here to show you how. You don’t need esoteric knowledge. You don’t need to master a new set of skills. Evangelization, for Catholics, is simply friendship raised up to the highest level. Enter a deeper friendship with Christ, and you’ll want to share his companionship more and more with a wider circle of friends. Scott joins us. Buy his book here.
