First Topic – Moments of Grace
God isn't content to remain at a distance from us. As these stories reveal, God is on the street, at our side, ready to step in, hoping to be invited. We look at stories from well-known Catholics, asking them to identify a particular event when God broke through to them. Sometimes God showed up in surprising ways, sometimes in the slow unfolding of a situation, but he always showed up. These moving, personal stories will encourage you to recognize that God will always be there for you as well. We talk about Moments of Grace.
Second Topic – U.S. Ambassador to Holy See Named
A Hispanic Roman Catholic theologian who was an adviser to Barack Obama's presidential campaign will be nominated to serve as the next U.S. ambassador to the Vatican, the White House announced Wednesday. Miguel H. Diaz, 45, an associate professor of theology at St. John's University and the College of Saint Benedict in Minnesota, would be the first Hispanic to serve as ambassador to the Vatican since the United States and the Holy See established full diplomatic ties in 1984. Diaz was born in Havana. We have analysis from Deal Hudson and Phil Lawler.
