The Best of “Kresta in the Afternoon”
Topic One – A Lukian Perspective at the close of the Year of St. Paul
In writing the Acts of the Apostles, St. Luke devotes nearly half of his text to St. Paul. Beginning with chapter nine, Luke narrates Paul's change from persecutor to apostle and then relates how Paul subsequently became a Roman prisoner. St. Luke gives prominence to chains as a means of bracketing the transformation that Paul experienced. Luke begins his account with Paul brandishing chains. He closes his narrative with Paul being guarded in chains. We look at this close of the year of St. Paul from a Lukian perspective. Fr. Richard Cassidy is our guide.
Topic Two – USCCB Meeting Review / Choosing a Patron Saint for Detroit
Archbishop Allen Vigneron joins us for his regular monthly segment. Today, we discuss the recently-completed USCCB Meeting as well as the Archdiocese of Detroit’s search for a patron saint.
