4:40 – Kresta Comments Catholic Ireland Adopts Gay “Marriage”: Politics Without Catechesis Always Fails
One of the most historically Catholic countries in the world has become the first country to recognize same-sex marriage by popular vote rather than a court order or legislative action.

We need the same power from the Spirit today – the power to preach the Gospel so that the modern world can understand, without changing the Gospel to conform to the modern world. We talk about the power of Pentecost with Mary Healy.
