Pray the Rosary

T2 Oct 15-rosary.jpg

On Tuesday’s Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie, we will talk about the power of the Most Holy Rosary.  October is Rosary month and we should be sharing all the wonderful things about the Most Holy Rosary so that folks will start regularly praying it.  Padre Pio once said: Some people are so foolish that they think they can go through life without the help of the Blessed Mother.  Love the Madonna and pray the Rosary, for her Rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today. Very powerful indeed!  Also on Tuesday, we will be conducting our monthly webinar with our special guest, Fr. Donald Calloway who will speaking about St. Joseph and about the Rosary.  Info about the webinar is at jerryanddebbie.com.


Urgent Prayer Requests

For some time now, Jerry and Debbie have offered a monthly show dedicated to taking your prayer intentions. It is always among our most impactful shows. We regularly receive e-mail from people who have urgent and time-sensitive intentions. So, we decided to offer an episode for those of you to call in who need prayers “right now.” On Monday, we’ll take your 911 prayer requests and offer them all to the Lord for His prompt replies.

Do You Look Forward to the Weekend, and Why?

Many people follow a Monday through Friday “work week.” Of course, many do not. For those who do, the weekend represents a couple of days to recharge your batteries, get important tasks done, go to Mass, get out of town and do something fun, etc. Even those whose work week is not Monday through Friday have their own “weekends.” Do you get excited as the weekend approaches? How do you make the best use of the time off from work? Perhaps you find weekends difficult, and can’t wait to get back into the weekday routine? As this weekend approaches, let’s have a lively discussion about this on Friday.

Do You Remember the Teacher That Had the Biggest Impact On You?

On Thursday, Jerry and Debbie want you to take all of us “back to school.” Throughout our lives, we’ve all had dozens of teachers, instructors, mentors, professors. They each have had their unique impact on our lives, hopefully all for the better. As you look back, can you point to one of them who was especially helpful in forming you into the person you are today? It could be a tough choice, but let’s all weigh in on this and honor the teacher who had the biggest impact on our lives.

What Has Failure Taught You?

St. Teresa of Calcutta often said, “Faithfulness, not success.” Our duty is to be faithful to whatever God calls us to do in life. Along the way, we are going to meet failure, sometimes in small things, sometimes in big things. This is simply inevitable. It’s what we do with life’s failures that counts. Have you learned from your failures? Have you become a better person because of them? Have they made you more determined to do your very best, in spite of the outcome? On Wednesday, let’s talk about how failure can be a catalyst for becoming the best version of ourselves.



Are You Haunted By Someone’s Suicide?

Tragically, suicide seems to be increasing in the world today, and it’s impacting people of all demographics. When someone dies by suicide, they leave behind unanswered questions, great sadness and often tremendous feelings of guilt over what might have been done to prevent it from happening. On Monday, let’s talk about this, and please call if you feel at all haunted by someone’s suicide. As we always say, we’re not trained therapists. But we all know someone who has died in this manner. So, hopefully, we can emerge from this conversation with a greater sense of hope and purpose going forward.
