Catholic Connection – November 29, 2013 – Hour 2

+  Meet Your Mother

  • Description: "Ever wonder why so many people pay so much attention to Mary, the Mother of Jesus? From the most ancient traditions of Mary in Christianity to the "Hail Mary" pass in American football, the Mother of Jesus has pervaded most world cultures for the last two thousand years. But could the Mother of Jesus also be your mother? That's the question explored in the exciting new book, Meet Your Mother. This easy-read pocket book on Mary covers all the major teachings about the Mother of Jesus, but is particularly written for the person who has little or no background knowledge about her."

+  The Layperson’s Distinctive Role

  • Description: The role of the laity in the Catholic Church is often a debated topic and a source of confusion. An important and timely new book, "The Layperson’s Distinctive Role," written by the highly regarded African prelate, Cardinal Francis Arinze, describes in positive and simple terms who the lay person is, his distinctive role in the Church, and how the lay apostolate distinguishes the lay faithful from the clergy and the religious. Mark Brumley joins Teresa today to make sure our listeners know all about this new book. (Originally aired October 1, 2013)
