Due to technical issues and Father Anthony still recovering, this is a rebroadcast from February 5th 2016, which was also on March 18th 2016.  Thank you and we apologize for any inconveniences.

TGIF and Father Anthony is in very high spirits today, happy to be here and on the air and the gang's all here, both Producer Armand and Nick, and the co-hosts of Christina, Gerri, and Tony and everyone is doing pretty good on this Friday.  However, Father Anthony shares some sad news about a Pastor who recently passed at the age of 95, which brings to mind how he lived a full life and also talk about living and living life, as well as today Grandparents were invited to St Stans today and the kids and Grandparents had fun.  With Grandparents in mind, this leads to a discussion on Grandparents, in general in terms of human beings and living long and wonderful lives, dealing with many, many things in their lives, both good and bad.  Producer Nick shares as well that his parents are excited to become Grandparents as well, with Nick's brother and sister-in-law expecting their first child in August this year and everyone is very excited.  After the first break, Father Anthony goes on to discuss on his current dilemma with the virus he's been having for a while, clearly indicated by the cough he's had for quite a while.  He's okay and he'll be fine and he has medication to help him, for Father Anthony shares how he obtained this medication and his visit to the doctor's office, as well as when he was in the hospital as a child.  This goes further looking into family history and once again talking about family in general.  This in turn brings to mind that, as Father Anthony points out that God is with us, helps us and knows us, even though we struggle in Life, He is with us and helps us, as well as He knows us.  After the second break, Father Anthony shares a story about a Sister from Notre Dame, sharing some very intense moments when she was kidnapped in April 2014 to June 2014, sharing what she felt during that very, very stressful time.  This brings to mind how we get "drawn" to people, inspired and influenced by their stories/experiences which affect theirs in one way or another.

Episode # 1413 - Saint Benedict A Solution To Today’s Problems

Due to Father Anthony still recovering and technical issues getting taken care of and worked on, this is a rebroadcast from March 17th, 2016.  Thank you and we apologize for any inconveniences. 

TGIAF on this Thursday and the Seasonal Transition is coming, that is not only is Winter supposed to change to Spring, with Easter and Holy Week also going on, but also a reminder to change clocks this weekend too, to "spring" ahead as they say.  This brings to mind how much is going by so fast and things are supposed to meet deadlines.  Father Anthony also shares everyone to watch and come to the movie documentary about St. Stans promoted by throughout the show that will show St Stans itself for this documentary which everyone is very excited about, which also will include keynote speakers, including the Archbishop of Vilnius:Gintaras Grušas  .  This brings to mind many "changes" in terms of things to come with Spring around the corner. The main focus today is Father Anthony sharing many stories surrounding  Saint Benedict and how his situations and how he himself relates to today's problems that everyone faces in their lives, but also in how he or what he did is a solution to today's problems as well, bringing to mind many gruesome and intense things people face in our lives and the signs of the times today too, including those suffering in the Middle East and ISIS and the government either doing or not doing something about it.  With Saint Benedict in mind, Father Anthony raises the question on if what Saint Benedict did is really a solution to today's problems, as well as if it's the solution.

Episode # 1412 - Thomas Jefferson And John Adams

Father Koys returns once again at WNDZ for the show this time again and wants to focus on the years and years between 1812-1830 in history or to be more precise, the years in American history that deal with the forming and foundation of the United States itself, as well as specifically talking about the second and third Presidents of the United States: John Adams and Thomas Jefferson.  He wants to bring up what they dealt with and how it relates to things going on in the times today.  Father Koys provides many historical facts with both of these men and Founding Fathers of our nation, sharing some letters from these men, as well as what they did during the formation of the United States.  Father Koys also relates this discussion to teenagers, not just how today's teens are, but in general.  He also points out how not only did these two men share in the forming of our nation, but also how they differed in some areas, especially with what they enjoyed and hated, as well as what they were for and against, liked and disliked, and agreed on and disagreed on.

Episode # 1411 - The Three Personas

Due to Father Anthony recovering and recovering well and tech issues, this is a rebroadcast once again from March 8th, 2016.  Thank you.

Tony is back on this Tuesday and he talks about his trip, first time, to Miami, Florida.  For he and his wife Angelica went down there for a wedding over the past weekend and talks about hanging with his friends and the wedding itself, as well as being in Florida for the very first time, having a great time and enjoying everything, including the climate and weather and had a fun time.  Father Anthony shares some of his memories from his family in Florida too.  The beautiful weather Chicago is having today might also be from Tony and Angelica, returning from Florida and here to stay maybe.  Florida is the main focus on the start of the show, as you can see and hear, but the subject matter turns more serious in terms of the Church, talking about the growing number of priests and baptized Catholics.  However, an interesting subject Father Anthony brings up today, which can relate to many various things he's talked about before, is the idea that we all have 3 sides to us: 1-The Public Persona, 2-Private/Family Persona, and 3-Interior Persona, all that we express during our lives with others and ourselves, all connected with Lent, Holy Week, and Easter, as well as talking about how people, especially celebrities have these in their/our lives.

Episode # 1410 - Back To Work Monday And Slow Monday

Since Father Anthony is still recovering and recovering very well, as well as a few technical situations, this is once again a rebroadcast from February 22nd, 2016.  Thank you. 

It's Monday and the last week of February and everyone is excited to be back on the show, being "blown in" as the show starts, however a bit of a slow start but things are going good.  Everyone first shares how their weekend was, with Father Anthony stating that everyday is a busy day.  Gerri is in a very good mood today with God "talking"/talking to her a lot today.  Tony however isn't in and Christina is feeling good after a good weekend at home.  A few birthdays are talked about and celebrated on the show today too, including talking about George Washington's birthday too.  Producer Nick is happy and in a good mood today too, due to the fact he's working on production work for the show and happy to be included in that and very excited working on things.  Since it's Monday, Father Anthony points out choreographing things, not just like dancers, but how people choreograph things in their lives, with a few historical topics in mind here.  However, Monday Mood might be creeping up on Father Anthony, Gerri, and Christina with a slow move at times, but things pick up as the show goes on with historical references on Jesus and his disciples here.  This leads to discussing the excavation of Peter on the show, which in turn goes in to talking about different kinds of masses held in different languages and cultures and being very moving experiences, not just for Father Anthony.

Father Koys is here once again, straight from WNDZ itself and is happy to be with us.  Tony, who usually is with him, goes into "The Punishment Room" Father Koys has, LOL (just kidding).  However, Father Koys talks more on the Church leading society in a way, that is how it is a few steps ahead of society, as well as facing the challenges and difficulties in society and how some important lessons are learned.  After the first break, Father Koys shares some letters from Father Anthony (who is recovering very well) accounting his recent surgical procedure and recovery, providing some very valuable and important information regarding his recovery, not only to let fans of the show know he is alright and recovering well, but how he felt/feels during the whole situation.  As the show goes on, Father Koys continues talking about society, focusing more on marriage due to a Father Loya promo that is being promoted during the breaks of the show.

Episode # 1405 - Spring Is Coming

Once again, this is a rebroadcast from March 7th, 2016 due to Father Anthony recovering and recovering very well.  Thank you.

It's Monday and once again, Father Anthony is "flying" in and feeling like chicken with it's head off (sorry don't mean to gross out or upset) but is in a nonstop Monday, for one thing the confessions this morning.  He also thanks all who attended and worked for the St. Stans Polish Dinner 2016 which ran this weekend and happy to have a lot of people there.  Unfortunately, he brings to mind another funeral held recently, however how during that time, you seen people you haven't seen in a while or for a long while.  Tony is in Miami or was with his wife for a wedding over the weekend and feels like Spring is finally here with the weather looking nice and finally feeling like Spring, especially with Father Anthony struggling this entire Winter with the cough he's had for roughly three months, but been a bit lousy Winter for that.  Producer Nick is doing okay and once again, his friend Kimmie is visiting the Church, and the show once again struggles, at first, what to talk about.  However, Father Anthony shares something he read over the weekend with everyone.  The subject matter turns again to food for a time too.  After the first break, Father Anthony shares a story he read over the weekend and his thoughts on those mentioned in it.  This brings to mind things about loving God and being in a brotherhood in a way with people, as well as another story today regarding a women who are in the modeling industry.
