  • Description:

    First Topic – George Tiller Murder = MLK Assassination

    The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is here to condemn the remarks of late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart in comparing the recent murder of abortionist George Tiller to King’s assassination. Carhart said: “This is the equivalent of Martin Luther King being assassinated. This is the equivalent of Pearl Harbor, the sinking of the Lusitania and any other major historic event where we've tolerated the intolerable for too long.” Alveda King responds.

    Second Topic – Looking Forward to the Feast of Corpus Christi

    The Feast of Corpus Christi, or the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ (as it is often called today), will be celebrated in the Churches of the United States this Sunday. The history of the Feast Day goes back to the 13th century, but it celebrates something far older: the institution of the Sacrament of Holy Communion at the Last Supper. For centuries after the celebration was extended to the universal Church, the feast was also celebrated with a Eucharistic procession, in which the Sacred Host was carried throughout the town, accompanied by hymns and litanies. The faithful would venerate the Body of Christ as the procession passed by. In recent years, this practice has almost disappeared. We talk with Fr. Gerald Garownski about the source and summit of our faith – the Eucharist.
