Due to Father Anthony being away for his recovery, which is doing very well, and Father Koys unable to make it in, this is a rebroadcast from September and will officially air tomorrow, 10-19-16.
Thank you.

Father Koys is here once again and things are going pretty well so far on this Wednesday.  Unfortunately during the live broadcast due to storms that passed through the Chicago area, power outages happened and caused many to lose power and internet connectivity.  We apologize for all the trouble during the show.  Father Koys talks about much going on in the world, including the debt going on and shares moralistic stories surrounding this, fables too.  One that he shares in on the subject by shedding light on the Congregation in many ways, which leads to talking about our and a persons spirituality, in a sense of being “too spirituality” Father Koys says.  This also relates to what is going on in the Middle East with what Father Koys talks about and it does, but more is involved here.  This also brings up the idea of being Martyrs here, which in turn brings up the idea of one getting their hands dirty and this is related to the Presidential Candidates too.  He also picks up the previous discussion he had on the last time he was on the air.   


Episode # 1535 - Being Cleansed By God

Due to Father Anthony away and recovering well, this is a rebroadcast from February 16th, 2016 and August 2nd.  Thank you.

On this Tuesday, everyone returns after a busy few days, Father Anthony and the girls, Christina and Gerri, which Father Anthony had a funeral yesterday and much going on at Saint Stanislaus Kostka.  Even though everyone is in good spirits today, Father Anthony is still dealing with his cough he's had before and after his trip to Italy.  However, Tony isn't here due to visiting a mechanic due to car trouble.  Father Anthony shares how the funeral went and the mass he had to conduct with he cough too, but due to it's getting warmer around Chicago this week.  Since the weather is the opening topic of discussion in a way, Father Anthony brings up many times he's dealt with the different seasons, especially Winter.  Today is Father Anthony's letter day, that is deadline for the usual newsletter he writes for St. Stans and that is on everyone's mind, as well as work.  However, since the funeral from yesterday is on Father Anthony's mind, he talks about that as well as silence being not only a part of that, but for mass as well.  This leads to Father Anthony talking about being "cleansed" in life and from things in life and cleansed by God and Jesus for our sins in life. This also brings up the Pope and his recent travels lately, including to Mexico and what he has been doing during his visits.

This is a rebroadcast from last Friday.  Thank you.

TGIF everyone and the first focus was that many birthday’s were going on. However the Nativity is talked about, not only in Father Anthony’s readings from earlier, but now for the show as well.  Tony arrives after being away yesterday, due to car problems, which he still is dealing with, but makes his way in.  The main topic of the show today is on Father Anthony sharing the latest information on what he says are, “cultural developments,” with how things have changed around us in society and things.  After the first break, Father Anthony talks a bit about the family once again, with some families he knows to help talk about this, as well as the previous subject on how society has changed somewhat.  The conversation shifts a bit with talking about cultural developments, with continuing on the subject of transgender bathrooms that has been in the media for a while, which in turn brings to mind talking about gays and lesbians on the show today, as well as babies born.  On a final topic towards the end of the show,Father Anthony talks about, as stated above, the Nativity of St. John.
