We’re all missionaries by virtue of our baptism. That means we are called to witness to our Catholic faith through words and the way we live our lives. Undoubtedly, you have been in situations where you were able to share your faith with family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc. Are you at ease doing that? Or do you struggle with the fear that you will be rebuffed and rejected in your attempts to evangelize? This is a huge issue for many people, so let’s discuss it on Monday’s show.
Most people make resolutions at the beginning of a new year to better themselves and those around them. It’s important to keep in mind that these are undertaken voluntarily, and there is no penalty for not observing them. Still, the idea is to stay strong and finish the race, right? With that in mind, how are you doing after about three weeks of the year 2021? Let’s uplift one another up on Friday’s show. Don’t miss it!
Establishing and maintaining relationships from a significant distance is nothing new. But with the advance of media and other forms of technology, it may have become more prevalent in recent years. Whether it’s a friendship with a high school classmate, a family member who moved across the country, or a romantic interest in someone, the endurance of these relationships can often require a lot of patience and sacrifice. Have you maintained a long distance relationship? How has it gone for you? Do you find it easier now with the high-tech means of staying in touch? Let’s talk about this on Thursday’s show. As always, we seek to grow a little bit closer to God with every on-air conversation.
It’s our first part two show of the new year! See yesterday’s show description for details. The calls, emails and social media comments were so numerous on Wednesday, that you voted for a second part on the topic of Our Lady, Undoer of Knots. If you were waiting to get on the air at the end of the show, you’ll be moved to the front of the line on Thursday.
Does it seem like your life is a bunch of tangled knots? Your relationships? Our country and the world as a whole? One of the beautiful titles under which the Virgin Mary is invoked is “Undoer of Knots.” Trust us, she’s very good at untangling things in our lives and restoring peace and order. Do you have a devotion to Our Lady, Undoer of Knots? If so, let’s talk about how she has helped us on Wednesday’s show.
On Friday, we will wrap up the first week of shows in this new year by inviting your calls and takes on the role of St. Joseph in your life, the life of the Church, and, for that matter, in world events and salvation history. How close are you to this great saint, the man who is called the “Protector of the Universal Church?” Do you run to him for help and intercession on a regular basis? Are you named for, or do you have a devotion to St. Joseph? Have you made the consecration to St. Joseph as outlined in Fr. Donald Calloway’s recent book? Let’s give this incredible man his due on Friday!
Here we are again at the start of another calendar year. Time to apply some self-improvement resolutions to our lives. Are you someone who makes such commitments? How well do you stick to them? Perhaps you’ve decided to get in shape, pray more, go to Adoration, exercise, sleep better, work on important friendships and relationships. Let’s talk about this on Thursday’s show.
Life is one long series of experiences. Each one of them helps to shape who we are and who we become. On Tuesday, let’s talk about this, and share experiences that we believe helped to make us better people – even if they were difficult or challenging life experiences. Be sure to join us as we continue the new year of broadcasts.
The calendar year that ends on Thursday has been, well, unique, to say the least. At least, let’s hope so. Whether or not we’ll see a return to any semblance of “normalcy” in 2021 obviously remains to be seen. Not many of us can say we’ve lived through a year anything like 2020. So, as we turn the page into a new year, how would you describe the year we’re wrapping up? Many people would like to forget it completely and forever. Others are taking a little time to see the good that can be taken away. On Thursday, share what your “goodbye message” would be to the year 2020.
Monday is the “shortest” day of the year, at least in terms of daylight hours. It may serve as a reminder of just how much “darkness” there is in the world today. Everywhere you look, you see sin being piled upon sin, only exacerbating that darkness. Yet, in John 1:5, we are told that, “The light (Jesus) shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” And St. Paul writes in 1 Thessalonians 5:5 that we are all “children of light and of the day, we are not of the night or of darkness.” What does that mean for us practically speaking? How are we to shine light in a dark world? How do you do that? By your lived example? By sharing the Word of God with others? In the way you are raising your kids? Let’s have a conversation about this on Monday.
