    Second Topic– A Soviet Court Convicts Jesuit Father Walter Ciszek of being a “Vatican Spy” – July 26, 1942

    On July 26, 1942, a Soviet court convicted Jesuit Fr. Walter Ciszek of being a “Vatican Spy.” During WWII, the PA priest had slipped into Russia to bring the sacraments to those who hadn’t seen a priest in years. He spent four years in Lubyanka Prison and was sent to Siberia as a slave laborer for 9 years.  We’ll detail his extraordinary life with Msgr. Anthony Muntone, co-postulator of his cause for canonization.

    Third Topic – Saving Freedom: We Can Stop America's Slide into Socialism

    The United States—the world’s great bastion of freedom—is sliding toward socialism. That’s the argument of SC Sen. Jim DeMint.

Federal control now extends in various ways to education, healthcare, financial markets, real estate, businesses, and religion. And as out-of-control government spending and debt increase accordingly, America is drained of the economic and political strength its people fought and worked so hard to achieve. But it isn’t too late to save the land of the free. Sen. DeMint is here to make his case.
