Talking about the “things that matter most” on May 12

4:00 – U.N. committee on torture grills Vatican on sexual abuse
For the second time this year, a Vatican delegation was in Geneva to discuss the obligations of the Holy See under international law with U.N. experts, and for the second time Catholic doctrine on abortion was at issue, drawing media attention and criticism for the mostly obscure U.N. committees.Some on the U.N. committee against torture suggested the Church’s teaching on the inviolable dignity of human life is a form of torture. We talk to David Rivkin about a piece he wrote in the Wall Street Journal last week entitled “Using a ‘Torture’ Claim Against the Catholic Church.”

4:20 – Paul VI to be beatified in October 4 along with other priests and religious. Why aren’t more laity canonized?
In an audience with Cardinal Angelo Amato, prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, Pope Francis approved the publication of a decree on a miracle attributed to the intercession of Pope Paul VI. In addition, Pope Francis approved the publication of decrees on the heroic virtues of two priests and the foundress of a religious order. We ask about the grueling canonization process and why more laity aren’t seen on the path to canonization. Matthew Bunson is our guide.

4:40 – Kresta Comments: Donald Sterling tells Anderson Cooper: I was ‘baited’ into ‘a terrible mistake’ / Making roster will be tough task for Sam

5:00 – Kresta Comments: Pope Francis Says to “Bother” and “Disturb” Your Pastors Until They Give You the “Milk of Grace, of Doctrine, and of Guidance”

5:20 – Paul Never Quoted Jesus?
A common claim in some skeptical circles is that St. Paul never quoted Jesus. A second common claim is that, if he had reliable knowledge of Jesus, he would have quoted him. The conclusion that is drawn from these premises is that St. Paul was not a reliable source on Jesus. Since St. Paul’s letters are among the earliest works of the New Testament, some proceed from there to argue either that historical knowledge of Jesus is impossible or even that he didn’t exist. Such arguments are highly problematic and Jimmy Akin is here to tell is why.

5:40 – Boko Haram video claims to show missing Nigerian schoolgirls
Boko Haram has released a new video claiming to show the missing Nigerian schoolgirls, alleging the teenagers had converted to Islam and would not be released until all militant prisoners were freed. The group’s leader, Abubakar Shekau, speaks on the video for 17 minutes before showing what he said were the girls, in Muslim dress and praying in an undisclosed rural location. A total of 276 girls were abducted on April 14 from the northeastern town of Chibok, in Borno state, which has a sizeable Christian community. Some 223 are still missing. We talk about this ongoing persecution with Robert Spencer.
