Good Tuesday as Father Anthony starts the show. Another busy morning Christina points out with many things going on this morning. One of the main focuses Father Anthony shares is results from the Synod that was held recently, about a 12 page packet he describes, on the discussion of the Family. Other things are shared with everyone on the show or at least at the start of the show before the main focus comes up. One of the main focuses again is the Gospel Readings from today Father Anthony shares. Another is again the Synod Father Anthony talks about that was recently held with the description of the Family in these times, as well as related to sin and forgiveness, as well as how the Church isn't really the same as it once was, in terms of being in the community. The discussion continues on this, how the signs of the times have changed.
A busy weekend for everyone, for Father Anthony opens the show on this good Monday, talking about the weddings he had over the weekend. Unfortunately, it's a busy Monday for everyone too, for Father Anthony sadly has a funeral to go to right after the show. Producer Nick points out how his parents and brother and sister-in-law saw Jay Leno over the weekend live. Cute things however are talked about, including dogs dressed up. Father Anthony shares some of the readings for today too, related to various things discussed. This leads to talking about evil and how Father Anthony says that by seeing evil, he's convinced of God being around. He shares Gospel Readings along these lines as well, providing many insightful words and things with this.
TGIF everyone and the gang's all here today on the show, with Father Anthony can't believe that it's Friday and October too. Everyone reflects from yesterdays show, expressing everyone to try to get out to visit when St. Maria Goretti and her relics come to visit soon. However, the show takes a sad turn, talking about the tragic, recent school shootings in Oregon, IL this week, with Father Anthony bringing up many points on the behaviors of people today. Everyone on the show expresses their opinions on how society has changed, is changed, and where we are today in the present time. However, Father Anthony talks about upcoming Feast Days and events going on for St. Stans. Father Anthony uses the words of Saint Francis to help on the discussion on the recent shootings and the changes in society, as well as with the Church.
On this first day in October, everyone is excited with the changes of season and the leaves turning and all. Also, today is important because on the show, we have guest Father Joshua Caswell from the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius discussing The Body of St. Maria Goretti at St. John Cantius on Monday October 12th, a very big deal with her being here for the first time and presenting her relics. Father Joshua is excited to be here and talks about other things, including St. John Cantius, which isn't too far from St. Stanislaus Kostka. He also shares some personal history about himself as well, which relates to today and what he talks about. After the first break, Father Joshua goes in to further detail on St. Maria Gorett coming up soon, which is promoted during the show. He also shares and talks about the history of Maria Goretti, which can be a bit gruesome, but accurate, which is very powerful, dealing with sinning and forgiveness.
Father Koys is here on the show once again and first talks about the flags of various countries and their relation to various religions, including Catholics. This brings up talking about the family and the definition of marriage once again here too. Father Koys also brings up the idea of being "lost" and then "found" in terms of religion. This brings to mind today talking about Muslims, with Father Koys providing a clip from a recent interview with Ben Carson. Continuing after the first break, Father Koys welcomes his guest, Maria Goldstein, who has worked and helped with the 40 Days For Life which deals with those going through abortion or thinking about it, and she shares some history of the work she has done, as well as orders made in conducting work for this. Maria also shares on what is going on for 40 Days For Life as well as coming up soon. For more information on 40 Days For Life, visit online at: https://40daysforlife.com. Father Koys ends the show today, talking about a recent meeting he attended where he talked about things related to the discussion today.
Due to technical problems continuing, this is a delayed podcast. On this good Tuesday, as Father Anthony opens and after a few technical problems (we apologize for that and any inconveniences), Father Anthony continues his discussion from topics yesterday and shares some history behind that and that God can do anything being the Lord Of History as one of many things with Him. Father Anthony continues his historical references today too with many involving today's Feast Day, The Feast Day of The Exultation of the Cross, which raises many things related to this. Some things and people included are Mary being the Mother Of God and how connected to all of us in more ways than one. Towards the end of the show today, Father Anthony brings up an interview, which will be discussed further, on Pope Francis and his upcoming visit.
Due to technincal and computer problems, this is a delayed podcast. The main problem of the day is many computer problems this morning, making it difficult and hard to broadcast, however went over the air live. The main focus however today is the results of Pope Francis visiting the United States last week. Everyone on the show shares how they felt and feel during and after his visit. Everyone also shares the "results of the people" Father Anthony says about how the public felt and feels about Pope Francis visiting, both the good and the bad, talking about how people felt and what some did during his visit, such as video tapping or recording it Father Anthony also shares interviews from Pope Francis during his time here in becoming a "super star" among the people and the world. One of the major topics, as the show continues is Father Anthony wants to discuss Abraham, which is related a bit to this.
TGIF everyone and the conversation continues on Pope Francis visiting America and how things are going with him being here, as well as how everyone on the show still feels about some of the things he's addressed and spoke on. Father Anthony was very moved by the Gospel this morning and how it relates to Pope Francis visiting. Father Anthony also addresses how Pope Francis talked to the UN this morning as well, addressing much to them. Father Anthony also shares on the show, some of his opinions, as well as Christina, Gerri, and Tony, on some of the topics Pope Francis has addressed during his visit here to the United States, which in turn relate to things/topics that have been discussed previously on the show.
Since Pope Francis is visiting the USA this week, Father Anthony is very excited and shares with everyone what he has been doing, saying, and going during his visit here. He, as well as his co-hosts, share a few personal stories related to what he is doing, saying, and going here, providing many inspirational feelings and ideas. For one thing, this morning he was in Washington D.C. and he spoke to Congress. During this conversation/show, Tony, Gerri, and Christina share how they feel on this and on his visit. Father Anthony shares some of the topics Pope Francis addressed in his talk to Congress this morning, including immigrants, the family, and other sensitive and/or serious topics.
