Episode # 1304 - How Do We Know We Are Catholic

Due to Black Friday, this is another rebroadcast, from November 6th, 2015 and will officially air this Friday: Black Friday 2015.  Thank you very much.

TGIF everyone and the gang's all here once again, with Father Anthony and his usual crew and both producers are here today too, during this first week in November and everyone is amazed how fast the holiday season has come.  The warm weather seems to have said goodbye, with it being cold today but the last few days being Spring or Summer like weather.  It sounds like it's going to be a "working weekend" for everyone, not just as Producer Nick says for him, but for Father Anthony and everyone.  Father Anthony talks about the differences of the times, especially when computers became the biggest thing for everyone to use, around the 1990's and how important they were and are.  Father Anthony goes further into discussing if we are consciously conscience if we know we are Catholic.  This leads to talking about various subjects that people do or can do to prove that they in fact are Catholic.  Producer Armand also contributes to this discussion on a friend of his, continuing into discussing other related things with this, including racism, our relationship with God and, as Producer Armand says, progression.

Due to Thanksgiving, this is a rebroadcast from November 12th, 2015 and will officially air tomorrow, Thanksgiving 2015.  From all of us at Winds Of Change, Happy Thanksgiving everyone. 

Today Father Koys is here once again and as said at the start of the show, Father Koys is once again going into history, but this time he goes only as far back as 2005 when the book titled: The Five People You Meet In Heaven was out and turned into a movie as well, with Father Koys talking about this book.  This brings to mind many memories surrounding many things and the differences with the times.  When talking about the film version of this book, Father Koys provides many audio clips for all to hear for those who may or may not have seen the film.  However, we are bouncing around with the clips due to technical issues, we apologize for any inconveniences.  He also brings up many ideas related to the clips provided on the show today, as well as the story too. Another thing with this discussion is: essence, or more technically the essence of God and Jesus.  This also brings up the story of Adam and Eve and the Apple here too.

Episode # 1300 - Changes In Friendships And Family

Father Anthony is back from visiting his mother last week in Florida, and a very rapid change of scenery and temperature, coming from where it's hot and warm, to now cold and freezing due to over the weekend, the first snow storm of 2015 hit Chicago.  Everyone is excited though, for Father Anthony shares how his trip went, as well as getting excited this week with Thanksgiving on Thursday.  Also, he talks about the Jubilee Year Of Mercy this Year, with everyone sharing their thoughts on this, Tony and Christina.  Another topic, mainly is not only with Producer Nick in mind, but everyone's busy these days and Father Anthony points out that being "too busy" can kill friendships and family, for various reasons these days, due to people, including Producer Nick, who work too much.  This also applies to not only negative feelings, but also in how that happens naturally, with those who become parents and things change, as well as when get married too, which also means not bad.  Producer Nick also shares how he understands this, how it's not bad necessarily with change, but that it happens naturally when children come, jobs change, or married and that with a mutual understanding, as Father Anthony says, creates not bad things, but very good times after not seeing each other for some time.  On a more interesting topic, Father Anthony points out how pumpkin flavored and/or pumpkin products are all around us, in terms of food and drink.  He also shares more on what happened in Paris with the terrorist attacks and the fear that may or may not spread.
