Pope Francis gave a stirring homily on the dignity of women on the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God. Tying it all in to the great role played in salvation history by Our Blessed Mother, he entrusted this entire year to Mary. On Tuesday, Jerry and Debbie will discuss this homily, and will invite all women to call and share what it means to you. Do you truly feel respected and honored in today’s world? How do you feel about the many abuses that are still perpetrated against women, which Pope Francis referred to as being “sacrificed on the profane altars of advertising, profiteering, and pornography?” Does reflecting on the Virgin Mary cause you to feel the profound dignity that you share with her as a woman? This should be an uplifting conversation, and we hope you will join us with your take.
Today we are hearing from listeners who share their “big happenings” and blessings for 2019! Join the Take 2 family and share how you’ve been blessed!
Balance in all areas of life is generally the key to a real healthy existence. Now there are some exceptions in every situation, but balance in life proves to be beneficial in mind, body and spirit. When we are in balance, then things run smoothly and every area of our life seems to flourish. When someone appears to be having a rough time, you can almost always zero in on a certain aspect of their life that is suffering. Creating balance in life seems simple on the surface, yet we still have so many folks struggling to keep life steady. Let’s talk about this concept and see how it applies to our lives.

Please Keep The Lights Up!
We as Christians must remember that we are in the Christmas season now. The lights should stay up and the celebration of our Lord’s birth must continue. But how many of us give in to the world, and the day after Christmas we start packing away the ornaments? The world would like us to make Christmas one big commercial day (following, of course, several weeks [months?] of trying to get you to buy anything and everything under the sun). But for us, Jesus’ birth changes everything for all of eternity. Let’s stay in the season and enjoy every moment telling the world that a Savior is Born!
We are excited to share this film and article with the Take 2 with Jerry & Debbie family! Click, read and watch this powerful piece from our friends at ChurchPOP that “perfectly captures the most extraordinary event in all of history!”
The Anima Christi is a prayer from around the 14th century. It is still widely used after receiving the body and blood of Our Lord,
Jesus Christ in Holy Communion.
Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from Christ’s side, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus, hear me
Within Thy wounds hide me
Suffer me not to be separated from Thee
From the malicious enemy defend me
In the hour of my death call me
And bid me come unto Thee
That I may praise Thee with Thy saints
and with Thy angels
Forever and ever
