  • Description:

    First Topic – March 18, 1314: Thirty-nine Knights Templar burned at the stake in Paris.

    On March 18, 1314 thirty-nine Knights Templar were burned at the stake in Paris. Though few others besides Dante championed the innocence of the oft-maligned military order, most scholars now agree with him. Created to protect pilgrims going to the Holy Land, Bernard of Clairvaux believed that the union in the Templar of the man of prayer and the man of war was exactly what the Holy Land needed. Christopher Check is here to examine the sad history of the Knights Templar.

    Second Topic – The Theology of His Body / The Theology of Her Body

    We are losing our teens to the secular culture earlier and faster than we think. That according to Jason Evert, author and well-known chastity speaker. He says since the sexual revolution, kids have grown up in a society plagued by illicit sex, and norms that promote an ‘anything goes’ culture. We must win back the hearts and minds of our young people. In Theology of His Body/Theology of Her Body, Evert helps to guide teens to an understanding of their dignity as men and women—a dignity that compels them to live out their chastity. He joins us to discuss it.
