Human labor is a big part of man’s dignity. This goes all the way back to the Book of Genesis, where God takes Adam and puts him in the Garden of Eden to work the land and take care of it. Of course, work is also vital to the lives of all of us who have to keep a roof over our heads, who have mouths to feed, and so on. Being happy and content in your job is a tremendous gift. It can add so much to your overall quality of life. On Friday, we’ll ask you to call in and share why you’re thankful for your job, for the skills God has given you, for your physical abilities that allow you to perform your job duties, etc. Let’s end the week of live broadcasts with another impactful conversation!
If you are not a Catholic but listen to Take 2 and EWTN, why do you tune in? Gigi, our Inspired By Faith Book Club Facilitator suggested this topic out of sheer curiosity. So please, would you do us the honor by calling in and sharing exactly why you listen to the show? Maybe you tune in just to find out what Catholics are all about. Or possibly you listen because there is something being talked about that resonates with you. Whatever the reason(s), we are genuinely interested and want to know…1-833-288-3986.
It’s often noted that people will be more open to the gospel based on what we do, rather than on what we say. We’re called to be open about our faith, without being showy or looking for attention. We are not to shy away from praying in public (such as before a meal at a restaurant), helping the poor, standing up for life by praying outside an abortion clinic, and lots more. It can be so uplifting and reassuring when we see others living their faith in a quiet, yet visible, way. Has that ever happened to you? Have you been going about your daily life, only to see someone make and unspoken witness to Jesus Christ? Let’s talk about this on Wednesday.
We all face crises when it comes to faith and morality. The Christian life is meant to be a battle to the finish line, to “persevere to the end” as the Bible exhorts us. Sadly, some get weary from the fight, and decide that it’s easier to throw away their faith than it is to continue to struggle to live in a manner their consciences tell them they must. On Monday and Tuesday, Jerry and Debbie have dedicated two shows to this important topic. If you or someone you know has abandoned the faith in favor of a lifestyle that’s in contradiction to the faith, let’s talk about it. Maybe we can use the Holy Spirit’s inspiration and discern how we might help to bring them back home.
To feel trapped is a horrible experience. When one feels trapped in a marriage it complicates things even more. It has been stated that people that attend Friday night “happy hour” at the bars for the most part do so because they don’t want to go home. That can be a real problem and avoiding the situation will not by itself fix things. But hope is real and available through the teachings of the Church, the Sacraments, and the programs sponsored by the Church to genuinely help, preserve, heal and protect the marriage. Let’s first identify this feeling of being stuck in the marriage and then let’s talk about the pathway to marital success the Catholic way. Call us at 1-833-288-3986.
Have you ever prayed and prayed for something, only to receive what you thought was an answer to that prayer, and you kind of wish you hadn’t prayed for it? Maybe it was a job that you wanted badly, that turned out to be a disaster. Or admission to the college or university of your dreams, and you realized it wasn’t the best fit for you. There could be a million examples of this. Let’s talk about it on Thursday’s show.
On Tuesday, we had a very lively discussion about Pope Francis’ homily on the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, in which our Holy Father strongly emphasized the dignity of women, and how they are still too often degraded and seen solely as objects of pleasure in today’s world. Next, we want to hear what the men have to say about how you view women, their dignity, how they are to be respected, etc. Guys, let’s step up big on Wednesday and assure the world that there is still a tremendous amount of respect for women and their dignity.
