Does Your Past Sometimes Get in the Way of Your Future?

1-18-18- erase_past

The history of our lives is a powerful force that can even invade our subconscious.  If we obsess on our history, then our destiny can never truly be celebrated.  God has a plan for each and every one of us.  Staying in our history, with regrets, shame and all, is like a slow death.  Learning from our past can be beneficial, but unfortunately it rarely stops there for most of us.  Focusing on the past can be quite paralyzing for our spiritual growth.  Negative thoughts and feelings tend to impede our forward movement.  Plus, looking back never really allows us to enjoy the present moment.  These are all things we come up against, so let’s learn together from our experiences.  Call in to 1-800-585-9396.

Peace In Our Homes

1-11-18-peace.jpg

Colossians 3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful.

Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

The word “peace” is used over 400 times in the Bible.  So what does that tell us?  Could it be that we must be instruments of peace in our homes and communities, just as we hear in the St. Francis Prayer? The home should be a safe haven for all who dwell in it.  The family is the domestic church, which means we must begin in the home.  Would you say that you work hard to keep peace in your home?  How do you think your children would describe their experience growing up in the home?  We live in a world, where it is very hard to truly find and maintain peace. This conversation on Thursday’s show will be about how we can bring back peace, joy and laughter into our dwelling places.  Call in and share some practical advice on how you keep a peaceful household. 1-800-585-9396

Please Stop Telling Me What I Believe

1-9-18-I_believe.jpg

Everyone either knows a Catholic, was a practicing Catholic or wants to convert a Catholic. Isn’t is so incredibly frustrating when folks like that tell you what you believe rather than asking you?  For some reason, Catholics have become fair game to these types of people. It seems as though some want to validate their erroneous ideas about Catholicism by cornering a Catholic and basically leaving them unable to defend their faith.  If we want others to ask us what we believe, we really must know and understand the faith.  This is a big responsibility but that is why ongoing catechesis is a must for all of us in order to evangelize this world we live in.  Let’s talk about this scenario and more on Tuesday’s Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie. Here’s the number to call in and be on the show. 1-800-585-9396.

Who Are You?

1-4-17_who_r_u (1)

Every human being is in search of his or her identity. We are each created by an all-powerful, all-loving God for a particular purpose in His overall plan. Some people understand this on a conscious level. For others, it’s perhaps subconscious, but no less real. Maybe the most asked question of all time – again, either intentionally or not – is “Who am I?” How would you answer that question in a few short words? A beloved son or daughter of God? The husband or wife of…? A member of the (insert name here) family? A forgiven sinner? Someone with a particular vision or mission to accomplish in life? Share with us your personal statement that sums up your identity at this point in your life. Call us 1-800-585-9396.
