Kresta in the Afternoon – November 6, 2019 – Hour 1

+  Kresta Comments: Where to Begin the Climate Discussion?

+  Benedict XVI Institute’s Mass of the Americas Coming November 16

  • Description: The greatest problem we face both inside and outside the Church is: the loss of the sense of the sacred. In a busy and distracted society, people from all walks of life hunger for deep meaning, for the timeless, for the transcendent. They hunger for the presence of God. The Benedict XVI Institute for Sacred Music and Divine Worship’s unique mission is to open the door of Beauty to God. We talk about it with Maggie Gallagher, who also looks at the upcoming Mass of the Americas.
  • Segment Guests:

+  Where do Human Rights Come From?

  • Description: For most of recorded history, cultures and societies sanctioned differences among peoples. Slavery was almost universally accepted and legal distinctions based on race, gender and ethnicity were justified. How did religion help restructure society towards a view of all humans having inherent dignity? We talk with PJ Hill.
