Family Gatherings

T2- 102318 - family.jpg

We are asking the question on Tuesday’s show, do you like going to family gatherings? If so, tell us what is special about them for you.  If you absolutely dread getting together with family, we want to hear from you as well.  Families can be great but they can also be spiritually draining at times.  Your story can definitely be a help to others.  That is why it is important to share when you have an opportunity like this.  Not all families are the same.  Yes, there are those exceptional families that are fun, harmonious and tight-knit.  These families shine, no doubt.  But let’s face it, most of us belong to a family that carries with it challenges that we must encounter every time we come together.  Tell us your family story by calling, 1-833-288-3986.

Childhood Challenges

There are many challenges that a child faces growing up. It could be a tough time in school, bullying, a dysfunctional family or a broken home. Sometimes children are forced to move from place to place due to a financial situation or a parent’s work requirements, i.e. military. Kids face many challenges growing up, and as we mature into adulthood, those obstacles became defining things for us in our behavior and character. On Friday, let’s talk about the most challenging things we faced growing up. It may be an opportunity for some of us to have an “aha” moment and take another step toward healing and wholeness.

How Have You Experienced the Help of the Saints?

October 1 was the Feast of St. Therese, The Little Flower. She proclaimed before her death that she would “spend her heaven doing good on earth.” So many people have turned to her for her intercession, often receiving a tangible sign from her in the form of a rose. We’ve also recently celebrated the feasts of a number of other popular and favorite saints. Have they helped you from their glorious place in heaven? Many people do not understand or appreciate how our older brothers and sisters in the faith can assist us from heaven. So, having this conversation could change the way we all seek and receive their help from above. Share your take on Thursday’s show.

“Miraculous Conception,” Part II

There were many calls, e-mails and social media comments that we didn’t get to on Tuesday, so we’re going to continue the conversation on Wednesday about overcoming challenges to conceiving and bearing children with the help of God and the intercession of the saints, especially St. Gerard, patron of expectant mothers and those having difficulty conceiving. If you didn’t make it on the air on Tuesday, be sure to give it another try on Wednesday!

Have You Had a “Miraculous Conception?”

Jerry’s mother could not conceive for many years. She made many sacrifices and prayed unceasingly to St. Gerard. After conceiving and bearing his sister, Mary, Jerry was next to come along. In thanksgiving, his parents named him after St. Gerard, a patron of expectant mothers and those having difficulty conceiving children. It’s a painful reality that in God’s mysterious design some couples never achieve pregnancy, in spite of an ardent desire and rigorous attempts to find a solution to their infertility. Others, also by God’s unfathomable providence, seem to receive help from above, often after praying to St. Gerard or many of the other saints. On Tuesday, tell us about your experience of receiving what might only be considered a “miraculous” conception.

Should We Pray For Insignificant Things?

We are exhorted by Scripture and our faith to pray unceasingly. It doesn’t set down any guidelines on what exactly we should and should not pray for. Obviously, we always want to pray for important things – faith, health, family, employment, peace, our Church and government leaders, persecuted Christians – the list is a mile long. But what about seemingly insignificant things? Should we pray as we approach the grocery store that we will find a choice parking spot? Or that there will be no one else using the equipment we want to use today at the gym? Do you think God cares enough about little things like these to hear and answer our prayers? Are they even things we should lift up to Him? Let us hear from you on Monday.
