Time To Say Goodbye

T2 -082018 -You Say Goodbye

It’s virtually impossible to be friends with everyone.  Plus, not all relationships are healthy for our spiritual life.  Is it ok to politely say goodbye to a friendship and maybe just keep them in our prayers?  Or should we try to convert them to our way of thinking and the faith? When is the right time to just say goodbye? Let’s talk about this scenario that most of us have encountered in our lives.  Friendships are hard to let go of and they can also be quite painful if we choose to stay in an unhealthy one.  What should we do as Christians?  Call in with your experience of this kind of dilemma. 1-833-288-3986.



My Faith Is Not Embraced By My Family

Can you relate to this? You are a Catholic Christian and your family is either non- religious, fallen away Catholic, or of another denomination that does not think kindly of Catholics.  Therefore, you are unable to openly express your faith or even live out your faith without be subjected to constant ridicule.  Family members can be the toughest, and they certainly don’t welcome any form of preaching, especially from a Catholic.  This situation leaves you voiceless in a family that is supposed to be supportive.  A very frustrating position to be in, but one that many of us find ourselves living in.  Call us with your story, 1-833-288-3986.

Good article for those wondering if they can attend a wedding of a baptized Catholic outside the Catholic Church.

Share with us your 5 year plan

T2 -081018 -5years (1).jpg


This topic was inspired by one of our listeners going through stage 4 cancer.  Her doctors keep asking her where she sees herself in 5 years.  So many times when one is going through a major health crisis, the last thing they are thinking about is 5 years ahead.  Yet, it has been found that part of healing is this idea of envisioning a brighter future. Therefore it is good to plan ahead, dream big and see yourself in 5 years.  It can be a healthy exercise.  If someone were to ask you…Where do you see yourself in 5 years or what is your 5 year plan?  How would you answer?  Maybe you want to be in top physical shape, graduate college, or move to another part of the country or world.  Life can be adventurous when we embrace the present moment, but look ahead to exciting things.  Share with us your 5 year plan by calling, 1-833-288-3986.

To Compliment or Criticize?

T2 -080718 -critic.jpg


It is so easy in today’s world to find the things that are going wrong in situations, relationships, etc.  We know how to criticize, but do we really understand the powerful healing effects of complimenting? Let’s take inventory of our lives and see if we tend to be more complimentary or critical in our everyday behavior.  Then let’s challenge one another to begin to compliment first before being ready to impart a criticism. This life exercise can be very beneficial in all our interpersonal relationships, plus it really is more Christ-like. Call us with your take on this topic, 1-833-288-3986.

Here is the poem written and read by Fr. John on today’s show:


Our first show of each month is dedicated to prayer.  Please join us as we pray for one another. Call, post or email us your prayer requests and intentions.  We truly do believe in the power of prayer.  As a family in the Lord, we can give the special gift of prayer for each other.  Prayer brings spiritual support, comfort and peace to all. At the end of the show, we will have Fr. John, a dear friend of Take 2, lead us in prayer and impart a blessing. 1-833-288-3986.

The Little Ones Can Be Great Teachers

Take2_073018- Wisdom-child.jpg

Children get it.  They know how to enjoy the moment.  They also know how to view things with a sense of awe and wonder.  Another great quality children have is their ability to shrug off fear.  We, as adults, could really benefit from watching how children approach new situations. But most of all, children seem to happily embrace God. Kids will say the most obvious but incredibly profound things about God.  If we really listen to our children, we can learn some great spiritual lessons.  Share with us what you have learned from your children or grandchildren.

Prayers For The World

Take2_072618- World

Previously, we did a show asking if you had one wish for the world what would it be.  This show was very popular and it actually unfolded into prayers for the world instead of just wishes.  Then one of our Take 2 listeners suggested that we should dedicate an entire show on prayers for the world. So here we go, think globally and call in your prayer intentions.  At the end of the show we will lift up all the intentions and pray together.  1-833-288-3986.
