Don’t Remind Me!

Throughout our lives, there may be countless incidents we would like to forget. As little children, our blunders and miscues are “cute” to everyone else. But that’s certainly not always the case when we’re teenagers or adults. The thing is, growing older doesn’t always mean we can avoid messing up. On Tuesday, join the discussion with Jerry and Debbie as we talk about embarrassing moments or events in our lives that we would just as soon forget, remembering that many of the virtues can be cultivated during these embarrassing moments.

On Monday (yeah, we know, it’s usually on the last Friday of the month), Jerry and Debbie will welcome your takes on anything and everything. We just had a string of shows related to the domestic family and the Church family, so we bumped Unscripted to Monday. If there was a recent show you couldn’t call in for, or something on your mind and in your heart, let us hear about it on Monday’s show. Everyday, the show is yours. But, especially on Unscripted. Bring it on Monday!

St. Francis de Sales Prayer:

The everlasting God has in His wisdom foreseen from eternity
the cross that He now presents to you as a gift from His inmost heart.
This cross He now sends you
He has considered with His all-knowing eyes,
understood with His Divine mind,
tested with His wise justice,
warmed with loving arms
and weighed with His own hands
to see that it be not one inch too large
and not one ounce too heavy for you.
He has blessed it with His holy Name,
anointed it with His consolation,
taken one last glance at you and your courage,
and then sent it to you from heaven,
a special greeting from God to you,
an alms of the all-merciful love of God.



Children Who Have Left the Faith

On Friday, we wrap up “Family Week.” It’s been a tremendous series of shows so far, and this will be the crown jewel. Everywhere we go, the most frequently mentioned prayer intention of parents, grandparents and family members is that their son(s) or daughter(s) is away from a practice of the faith. Many of us have seen these individuals return to Mass and the sacraments. Others are still waiting, often in tears, for that blessed day to arrive. If this unfortunate scenario touches upon your life, call and let’s talk about it as we head into the weekend.

Children Choosing Sides

Thursday is Parental Alienation Awareness Day. It’s sad that we have to set aside a day for something like that. But the stark reality is that many children find themselves in a difficult situation when their parents split up. Many times, the kids are able to spend time with, and continue to be nurtured by, each parent at different times. In other uglier instances, one parent may attempt to paint a dark and sinister picture of their former spouse, thus turning the minds and hearts of the children away from the latter spouse. Have you experienced this in your life? If you listen regularly to the show, you know that this has happened to Debbie, who has not had a meaningful relationship with her two sons for many years. As hard as it may be to talk about this, let’s have a candid – and, God-willing, helpful – ┬ádiscussion about it.

Are You a Convert to Catholicism?

On Wednesday, Jerry and Debbie continue their “family week” to kick off the Easter season. We’re talking all week about our domestic families and our overall Church family. Thanks be to God, the latter got a little bigger at the Easter Vigil again this year. Were you among those who entered into full communion with the Catholic Church? If you’re a convert, or a revert, to the Catholic faith, call in early to make sure you get on the show to tell the world why you made that decision, and what emotions you experienced when it happened.

Here is a link to a talk given by Fr. Michael Gaitley on the special promise from Jesus that is attached to Divine Mercy Sunday.

Have You Raised a Child With Special Needs?

On Friday, we’ll be pre-empted by EWTN’s great coverage of the Triduum. We pray that you are richly blessed over the coming days, especially as we remember Jesus’ glorious resurrection on Sunday. To start next week, we want to hear from you if you have raised – or are currently raising – children with special needs. Sometimes, these are our biological children. Other times, couples choose to adopt these beautiful kids. In either case, let’s celebrate their inherent worth and dignity by talking about the blessings they are, or have been, in your lives.

Men And the Church

Guys, it’s your turn to call the show on Wednesday. On Tuesday, we asked the ladies to call and share how being Catholic has enabled them to flourish and thrive, not only in their faith lives, but in life in general. There were some amazing calls, which you can hear by listening to the archive of the program once it’s posted. So, men, how do you live out your Catholic faith with joy? How does being Catholic make a difference in your life. Is your life in high gear because of your Catholic faith? Let us hear from you on Wednesday!
