Honoring St. Pio of Pietrelcina

There is so much to say about Padre Pio. He was an amazing Capuchin friar, priest, mystic and stigmatist. He was known for his life-changing confessions, and also for his incredible love for the Rosary.  His feast day is Sunday, so on Friday let’s share our thoughts about Padre Pio, so that everyone may gain a greater knowledge and appreciation for this great saint.

It’s In the Catechism

Many times we are confused about certain doctrines of the church. We may discuss concepts with others, or even try and search for answers on the Internet. But did you know that if you look in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, not only will you find a proper answer, but you will learn additional information that can help you understand better and also begin to embrace the teaching more fully. On Thursday, join Jerry and Debbie for a conversation about the Catechism, and call to share how you turn to it in order to better learn, love and share our beautiful faith!

Catholic Health Sharing

On Wednesday, Chris Faddis joins Jerry and Debbie. He is a co-founder of Solidarity HealthShare, one of a number of rapidly-growing alternatives to traditional health insurance coverage. Chris will share how the organization started, how it has grown and what it has done for the over 5,000 people who currently participate in it. There is such a need to support one another, especially when it revolves around taking care of the physical body.  Chris will share about his late wife’s journey with cancer, and the cost of medical treatment.

Jewish Day of Atonement

T2 -091818 -yom-kippur (1).jpg

We see these holidays on the calendar, Rosh Hashanah (Sept 9-10) and Yom Kippur (Sept 18-19).  Maybe we have been taught to say, Happy New Year to our Jewish friends because it is in fact the beginning of their new year.  But what exactly is Yom Kippur? For Jews, it is the holiest day of the year.  It begins at sunset on the 18th and goes until the breaking of the fast 25 hours later.  It is a time of deep prayer, fasting and synagogue services. These high holy days of the Jewish year are very important because it is a time to recall past sins, repent and be right with God for the new year.  It is such a beautiful ritual the Jews partake in and one we can learn from as well. Share why you think it is important to understand this holy day and how it can enhance your own spiritual life. 1-833-288-3986.

Monday Morning First Thoughts

T2 -091718 -start -week.jpg

Sunday is over, Monday begins, so are your first thoughts still about God or are they about work, school, etc? It is a common thing for us to leave God on Sundays and go on with our schedules during the week. Maybe that is why there is minimal Mass attendance on Mondays.  Let’s talk about this and see if we can look at Mondays in a different light. Remember, scripture tells us to give God our first fruits, not just money and resources but our thoughts and time.  God does not need us, we need Him. If we leave God behind when Sunday is over, what does that say about our relationship with Him? We are made to be in union with God and deepening that bond during the week would naturally prove to be beneficial for our spiritual life here on earth and ultimately for eternity. Share with us how you start your Mondays. 1-833-288-3986

Do You Abstain From Meat Every Friday?

We are instructed to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and the Fridays of Lent. But more and more Catholics are choosing to continue this practice throughout the year, especially now with the various crises and attacks facing the Church. The U.S. Bishops lifted this discipline for the rest of the year, yet Fridays are still a day of penance and we should observe that in a meaningful way. If you adhere to the practice of abstaining from meat every Friday throughout the year, please call in and share how it has enhanced your spiritual life. If you are interested in adopting this penitential observance, please share that as well.

Good article in The National Catholic Register by Deacon Steven Greydanus.

Are You Genuinely Happy When Others Succeed?

When you say the word “Congratulations!” to others, is it just an obligatory sentiment to send, or do you genuinely mean it? Are you deeply happy for others when you see them succeed in life, have good health, great relationships or good fortune? Your responses will reveal quite a bit about how you view yourself. Let’s talk about this on Thursday’s show!
