Kresta in the Afternoon – September 8, 2010 – Hour 1

  • Description:

    First Topic – Kresta Comments – TIME Cover Photo

    TIME Magazine recently published a very disturbing photo on their cover. The editorial page defended the publication of the photo as necessary to tell the truth of what was really happening. They said that children may be disturbed, but the truth should not be hidden. They said that in the midst of a lot of political rhetoric and hyperbole, sometimes the human toll gets lost and forgotten. Were they talking about a photo of an unborn baby destroyed by abortion? Al has a commentary.

    Second Topic – The Biblical Roots of the Mass

    As a Catholic, do you ever wonder why Jesus is referred to as “the Lamb of God” or why the “Body and Blood” of our Lord distributed at Communion time still look and taste like ordinary bread and wine? If the biblical story of the Mass did not begin at the Last Supper, where did it begin? Answers to these and many more questions will be provided in EWTN’s exclusive new 13-part series, “The Biblical Story of the Mass,” which will air 5 p.m. ET Sundays (with a re-air at 2:30 a.m. ET Fridays), beginning Aug. 29. Co-host Tom Nash is here to discuss it.

    Third Topic – Providing Spiritual Nourishment to Soldiers on the Front Lines

    The Frontline Faith Project delivers compact MP3 players preloaded with spiritual content, especially as it pertains to military service, to members of our armed forces currently deployed or returning from deployment, with special emphasis on injured troops and troops stationed in Iraq or Afghanistan.
