First Topic – The Apostles: The Origin of the Church and Their Co-workers
In a fascinating and inspirational journey with the chosen disciples of Jesus, Pope Benedict XVI demonstrates a profound, unbreakable continuity -- built upon the foundation of the Apostles and alive in the succession of the Apostles -- by which Christ is present today in His Church. The book is entitled The Apostles: The Origin of the Church and Their Co-workers, and Amy Welborn has written a study guide for the book. She joins us.
Second Topic – The Cross at Ground Zero
Millions of Americans gazed in disbelief as the magnificent World Trade Center buildings collapsed into piles of rubble on September 11, 2001. After the shock and horror wore off, the questions began. Father Benedict J. Groeschel, C.F.R., addresses many questions in his book, The Cross at Ground Zero. He reassures us that the iron cross, found at the world trade center, leads to the cross of Jesus which stands at the center of all pain, all suffering, indeed all history. He explains that Jesus did not come to take away suffering. He came to sanctify suffering by His presence. He was at Ground Zero in the World Trade Center. He shares his insights on this tragic anniversary.
