    02-06-19

    GUESTS: 

    Mike and Alicia Hernon, founders of The Messy Family

    People say to us all the time, “You have 10 kids??  How do you do it?” By trial and error, just like you!  Kids don’t know (thankfully!) that most of the time parents are just making things up as we go. We remember looking for someone to tell us the perfect way to be a parent, but then we finally realized – there is no perfect way!   We are still in the trenches with our children, from 6-23, and a grandchild on the way as well. Parents never stop learning. Raising our 10 children has shown us that being a parent is difficult, but not impossible. We are passionate about families, and we are here to give you hope!

    GUEST: 

    Fr. Joseph Fessio, S.J. of Ignatius Press

    In 1974 Father Joseph Fessio, S.J. returned to the United States from then-West Germany, where he had completed his doctoral studies in theology under then-Professor Joseph Ratzinger (who would later become Pope Benedict XVI). Previously Father  Fessio had been pursuing graduate studies in theology in France, mentored by Father Henri de Lubac, S.J. (later to be made a Cardinal by Pope St. John Paul II). It was Father de Lubac who proposed to Father Fessio that he write his doctoral thesis on the theology of Father Hans Urs von Balthasar, whom Father de Lubac described as ‘the greatest theologian or our time…and perhaps of all time’. (Father von Balthasar was also named a Cardinal by Pope St. John Paul II but died shortly before being officially received into the College of Cardinals.)  It was also Father de Lubac who wrote to Professor Ratzinger asking that Father Fessio be accepted by him as a doctoral student.
