Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on March 16, 2015
4:00- Without You, there is no Us: My Time with the Sons of North Korea’s Elite
Suki Kim knew North Korea was a world where the elite invented their own truth. In 2011 she got a job teaching English to the teenage sons of the country’s ruling class at an exclusive university. She kept notes on her experience, saving them on portable flash drives which she carried with her everywhere lest they fall into the wrong hands. Suki joins us today with her story.
4:40 – Should a Chaste Catholic with Same-Sex Attraction “Celebrate” their Gayness?
We’re following up our open line discussion from last week on the lives of chaste Catholics who are same-sex attracted. Is it appropriate for two people who are same-sex attracted to live together chastely and offer each other support? Should a Catholic who is same-sex attracted view their orientation as a gift from God or a cross to bear? We discuss the issues with Fr. Paul Check, founder of Courage.
5:20 – When the Church was Young: Voices of the Early Fathers
How much do we really know about the early days of the Church? How do we know truths such as the concept of the Trinity if they don’t explicitly appear in Scripture? The answers lie in the lives of the early Church fathers. Marcellino d’Ambrosio joins us.
