First Topic - The Walls Come Tumbling Down on John Corapi
The following is a portion of the text of a press release issued by Fr. Gerard Sheehan, Fr. John Corapi's religious superior in the Society of Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity:
- He did have sexual relations and years of cohabitation (in California and Montana) with a woman known to him, when the relationship began, as a prostitute.
- He repeatedly abused alcohol and drugs.
- He has recently engaged in "sexting" activity with one or more women in Montana.
- He holds legal title to over $1 million in real estate, numerous luxury vehicles, motorcycles, an ATV, a boat dock, and several motor boats, which is a serious violation of his promise of poverty as a perpetually professed member of the society.
Jimmy Akin is here to discuss.
Second Topic - The Augustine Institute: Forming Disciples for Leadership in the New Evangelization
In response to the call of Jesus Christ and His Church, the Augustine Institute is a Catholic Institute of Higher Education that forms disciples for leadership in the New Evangelization through intellectual, personal, and practical instruction so that they may renew the Church and transform the world for Christ. A new offering from the Institute is Catholic distance education program which makes their unique formation available to the many religious, lay people, catechists and educators around the country who are not able to move to Denver full-time. The distance program makes it possible to complete your Master's degree from your own location, at your own pace and on your own time. Tim Gray, President and Scripture scholar, is here to explain.
Third Topic - The Napa Institute
The Napa Institute exists to promote excellence in Catholic thought and apologetics. It also seeks to instill a new zeal for Jesus Christ and the Catholic faith in all its participants. To accomplish this, one of the Institute's key tools is an annual conference designed to help attendees respond to the moral and spiritual challenges posed by America's emerging "post-Christian" culture. We talk with Institute Chairman Tim Busch about the Institute, the Conference and Ave Maria Radio's involvement.
