Kresta in the Afternoon – September 12, 2013 – Hour 2

+  Kresta Comments - Is The Vatican Calling For An End To Celibacy?

+  The Last Public Teaching of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI: The Transforming Power of Faith

  • Description: "Having faith in the Lord is not something that involves solely our intelligence, the area of intellectual knowledge; rather, it is a change that involves our life, our whole self: feelings, heart, intelligence, will, corporeity, emotions, and human relationships. With faith everything truly changes." So Pope Benedict XVI introduced his catecheses for the Year of Faith, a series of sixteen talks given at his weekly audience from October 2012 to the end of his papacy in February 2013. These talks explore how and why faith is relevant in the contemporary world. How can we come to certainty about things that cannot be calculated or scientifically confirmed? What does God's revelation mean for our daily lives? How can the hunger of the human heart be fulfilled? Offering the guidance of biblical exegesis, pastoral exhortation, and brotherly encouragement, Pope Benedict seeks to answer these questions and many others. His former student, Fr. Joseph Fessio, joins us to look at some of the final teachings of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.

  • Description: Last week, the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Michigan released the results of a study that showed that yelling at teens actually aggravated problematic behavior rather than extinguishing it. Likewise, teens who were consistently yelled at had higher incidences of depression, school problems, lying, stealing and fighting than kids who did not experience “harsh verbal punishment.” We look at the study and 5 things to do instead with Dr. Greg Popcak
