It’s important as Catholics to stay informed about our Church and world today.
Several shows on the Station of the Cross provide a Catholic perspective on news, movements and societal trends to equip us with knowledge and to encourage us to actively do our part in serving Christ in our world.
For a taste of what you’ll hear, all of these topics were discussed throughout the day on Wednesday, August 24th.
On Catholic Connection with Teresa Tomeo at 9 am ET, Teresa talked with Andy LaVallee about prayer and fasting and how he incorporates both into his Web site: livethefast.org. They specifically mentioned prayer and fasting in regard to the election, but also how it’s important to continue praying and fasting for our nation regardless of the election results.
Every weekday at 4 pm on Kresta in the Afternoon, Al Kresta speaks with experts in various fields, including politics, the Church, media and more. Al talked with Fr. Jeffrey Kirby about his book Doors of Mercy. In this Year of Mercy, many are writing on the subject, but Fr. Kirby takes the approach of mercy in its relation to salvation history and our relationship with God.
On the Wednesday edition of our 5 pm weekday flagship show Calling All Catholics, Fr. Peter Calabrese talks about the topics of the day. This episode focused on a survey done by the Pew Research Center, which addresses why so many Americans are not identifying with a particular religious group. Many of our listeners chimed in with comments about why those in their own lives left the Catholic Church and thoughts on how people in general are becoming lazy in their spiritual life and do not appreciate the gift of Jesus in the Eucharist.
Keep tuning in to learn more about our Catholic Faith and the events that impact us as the Children of God who are praying for and looking out for one another.
