The Power of a Mother’s Prayers

Perhaps the greatest mother-son faith story of all time – after that of Mary and Jesus, of course – is the account of how St. Monica’s prayers helped lead to the conversion and, ultimately, sainthood of her son, St. Augustine. Their feast days are Saturday and Sunday, respectively. So, on Monday, Jerry and Debbie will welcome your takes on the power of a mother’s prayers. Are you a mother who is praying for your children to return to the faith? Did your mother pour out her heart to God, such that He heard her prayers and brought you back? This will be a powerful episode of Take 2 With Jerry and Debbie at Noon ET on EWTN Radio.

You are never alone!

alone

Jesus is always with us.  Our Blessed Mother is praying for us. The saints are standing by ready to intercede for us.  Plus, our great God gave each of us our own personal companion (Psalm 91) to guard us and guide us all the days of our lives.  So, we are never alone, even though sometimes we feel abandoned.  Let’s talk about how we can come to the realization that Heaven is rooting for us and is very active in our lives.  Call in at 1-800-585-9396.

A Father’s Love

Knowing the love of God the Father, and translating that into being a loving father to one’s children, is so very important. It becomes much harder when one’s early life was filled with traumas and abuse. On Wednesday, Jerry and Debbie welcome Catholic speaker and permanent deacon candidate John Sablan to the program. John has spent his life digging out from under the wreckage created by some of those who were supposed to love and nurture him into manhood and fatherhood. Through God’s grace and healing, John is now on fire for helping others know “a father’s love.” You don’t want to miss this episode at Noon ET, with a reply at Midnight ET.

Family Catechesis

Fam-catechesis

“The family that prayers together stays together.”  Faith formation in the family, enables each member to grow spiritually within a safe environment.  The family unit is the perfect setting to explore the tenets of the Faith and to foster a rich prayer life.  So many times families abdicate their role as catechists and depend on the church’s religious education program to fulfill all their needs.  This is a missed opportunity.  The religious education programs are designed to complement what the parents or families are already practicing by way of religious formation.  Not the other way around.  Share your wisdom on this very important topic by calling, 1-800-585-9396.

Are You Having Trouble Finding a Job?

Being unemployed is a big challenge for many people, especially if you have a mortgage or rent to pay and mouths to feed. As we discussed on our August 17 show, the Church’s social justice teachings include the right of every person to productive and gainful employment. But that depends a lot on economic realities and other factors. Are you out of work and looking everywhere you can for a job? How has it impacted you and your family? Join Jerry and Debbie for this important discussion on Monday at Noon ET, with a reply at Midnight ET, only on EWTN Radio.

Pokémon Stop!

pika-pika-matt-t2

The Pokémon Craze is sweeping the nation.  On Take 2, we will talk about this phenomenon.  Is Pokémon Go a good thing for people, or is it harmful?  We have heard of accidents already, even a death.  But maybe, just maybe, Pokémon is an instrument for evangelization.  Remember, on Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie, we take a fresh look, a new look at topics that we are all exposed to.  Join the conversation by calling 1-800-585-9396.
