TGIF everyone and it's the final few days in May, and it's raining out in Chicago today, an unfortunate thing for Christina who walked to work today and a reminder that the Annual St. Stanislaus Kostka Carnival again this year. The discussion leads to laughs of previous Carnival setups, including when a wedding simultaneously happened too. Everyone wishes a Happy Birthday to Rosemary, related to our Gerri too and a very important person involved with St. Stans as well. The show picks up where Father Anthony left off yesterday with the topic of problems and solutions that we face during our time in our lives. He also continues this with various readings and quotes from not just readings, but letters and more to provide a historical background a bit here, as well as the Ark Of The Covenant. Yesterday was more about the problems, now on today's show, we focus more on solutions to them. Since Rosemary Sullivan's Birthday is this Sunday, Father Anthony briefly talks about her and her family, including Gerri in there too. Afterwards, Father Anthony continues the discussion of solutions to the problems. He also provides many insights to this discussion today for everyone to be reassured that they will be helped and saved with the solutions here.
TGIAF today, being Thursday and Father Anthony is back with us today, along with the usual group and things seem to be alright at the start of the show and Happy Thursday everyone. Beards seem to be on everyone's mind this morning, which everyone gives the pros and cons of them, including Producer Nick and Tony a bit. However, the discussion turns to talking about God, or being more precise, how He has and does help us in our tough times. Even a difference in generations here, but the main focus today is the problems and the solutions to them in our lives. This includes, but limited to things/topics talked about on the show, including recent happenings in Ireland, as well as Canada. Another topic is the upcoming changes in school curriculum, regarding things with sexuality, which relates to the discussion of problems and solutions in the "storms of our lives" Father Anthony uses as one of the ways to describe the discussion today. This in turn takes a look at how young kids are acting today and who or what kind of celebrities the look to as role models or for inspiration, attitude, and a way of thinking and acting. One of the obvious solutions to turn to, who and/or what stated here, is God Himself.
It's Wednesday and Father Koys is back again, along with Tony and things are going pretty good today for everyone on this beautiful day in Chicago. Once again Father Koys goes into discussing history with things going on today, with Thomas Edison in mind this time. With his Civil War Reenactment coming up, Father Koys talks about reenactments in general and the historical events that take place, showing everyone an idea of what happened, as well as getting a glimpse of history. The discussion continues the discussion on the teachings of Father Koys Philosophy teacher, which puts Tony "on the spot" to say, with how he feels about these topics and things mentioned. This discussion also continues what Father Koys was talking about the last time he was on the show, around the time of 1860 during the Civil War. Father Koys also points out things said by Cardinal George, which are very influential.
Back to the normal routine on the Winds of Change, here with Father Anthony here and explaining that Summer is officially, or hopefully with the weather as it has been, is officially here. Everyone is fine, but getting back to the normal routine and Gerri shares with us something she read that is very inspirational on how where we are, the Lord is near. Father Anthony talks about some of the things he did, but also to look to the light in terms of things going on, including things coming up at St. Stanislaus Kostka. Father Anthony talks about some of the things that he heard over the weekend, including some things going on with marriage in Ireland. The leads to a heated discussion on many things, including Gerri pointing out that many have "thrown God away" in our troubles or changes. After the second break, Tony joins in and makes it, due to Chicago traffic, but shares his feelings on the recent readings, as well as joins the discussion. The discussion continues on talking about what has been going on in Ireland.
Due to the Memorial Day Holiday, this is a rebroadcast show from May 14th, 2015. From all of us at Winds Of Change, Happy Memorial Day everyone and this show will officially air this Monday, Memorial Day, May 25th, 2015.
Father Anthony is back, feeling very good, not sure where the show will go at the start, but ready anyways. Everyone seems to be doing okay and fine today, in good feelings it seems, but Father Anthony talks about how he's been busy the past few days, with meetings and others things going on at St. Stanislaus Kostka. With what Father Anthony talks about, he seems to be painting a picture of "blue skies and green grass" and all that, to help talk about the good things. However, Father Anthony and everyone talks about a recent train tragedy that happened, and those who are going through this, with the idea about life and reality, bringing to mind our relationship with God and how our frustration and joy plays out here. This discussion turns toward talking about celebrities, such as Marylin Manson and Lady Gaga, and how they are as a person, as well as the "image" that they have in the culture and public, expressing several facts and thoughts from everyone on the show today, bringing to mind that their image and ego, is such related to worship and following, like following God. Following this discussion, Father Anthony shares what Pope Francis has said on the possible future of the Church, which brings about the topic of the need or not needing the Church.
TTIGGFF, or That The Good God It's Finally Friday and everyone is feeling the Friday feeling, with the laughs coming and getting excited for the Patriotic Holiday this Weekend, Memorial Day. With Memorial Day this weekend the idea of Patriotism is brought up at the start of the show, as well as the religious facts with Memorial Day too. Father Anthony talks about the conversation that went on between Jesus and Peter, talking about and trying to figure out what was going on and what was happening with Jesus. Dave brings to mind Our Lady of Fatima here again, not only cause he works for it, but also how it fits in with this particular subject and helps. This leads to talks about how we may not be in a peaceful era yet, due to many things contributing to stress and problems, such as abortion Dave mentions. This also leads to more on the idea of redemption and reparation here with the topic of peace and finding peace. Dave ends the show more on the Blue Army, as well as upcoming things/events/work in the future months and summer.

On this beautiful day in Chicago, as Father Anthony says, it's a beautiful day today and things are pretty good and as an additional surprise, Dave Carollo is here again and is back from his trip. It's a bit weird today with Christina being out of place being in Gerri's seat and Producer Nick has once again brought his friend Kimmie again today and everyone is glad Dave is here. On a more serious subject as the show starts, the situation with ISIS in the Middle East has gotten worse and the need to do something about them has increased. Dave talks about his recent trip to Poland, that he talked about before he left a few weeks ago on the show, and he and his wife had a very good trip, visiting many sights and people over there. Dave also talks about the current situation with ISIS too, as well as other things related to this and them. He also brings up more on what his organization, the Blue Army has and is doing with this in mind, as well as other things. The discussion goes back a bit to discuss some of the things Our Lady Of Fatima has done and did, past and present, as well as what Dave's Blue Army has been doing too. One of the major things/weapons used by the Blue Army, is the Rosary and Dave goes into how it's used, in terms of spirituality and influential methods. As the show comes to an end today, Father Anthony asks Dave his feelings on the saying, "The Message Is Too Black And White" here, but don't worry, Dave Carollo will be back on the show tomorrow too. For more information on Dave and The Blue Army, visit online at: http://wafusa.org.
Father Koys is here once again joined by Tony and history is on the brain today for Father Koys with much going on. Once again, Father Koys shares some history regarding the Civil War, but this time, around the 1860's of that time. With this time period in mind, Father Koys also asks that everyone not only look into and research the Civil War, but also the other wars from history from various time periods, past and present. The Civil War is on Father Koys mind, due to he and others doing a reenactment coming up in June (as advertised on the show). He also uses this time in American History to talk about slavery, not just however in the Civil War time. He also brings to mind what he has been doing with this time period in mind, and that is how Catholics and Catholicism fits in with this, as well as sharing many things on his mind related to the Civil War. Father Koys also brings to mind how with slavery and other problems that concerned many in the Civil War Era, we need to learn from these mistakes and problems in the past to help us in the present to lead toward a great future.
On this cold, winter like day in Chicago, Father Anthony asks the question, "Is the World coming to an end?" due to the fact that Spring and Winter, and now Summer, seem to be fighting for control this year in terms of changes of season. Everyone shares how they feel, but Tony feels that everything is coming down due to politics and weather, and Christina points out that maybe things are rough due to many turning away from God. On this subject, Father Anthony brings to our attention, times of those who have been suffering and scary notions/topics/facts/occurrences that may or may not contribute to end of the world ideas or doomsday. On a very different topic, Father Anthony shares the readings from this mornings masses with everyone on the show today, relating to the previous discussion, as well as us all having good and bad days with things and the apocalyptic discussion. The discussion towards the end of the show deal with talking about life, more that life is work in these times we live in, provided by the readings Father Anthony shares. This leads to ask yourself, where you stand on this discussion or how you feel about how the world is changing and where do you stand with it changing.
Everyone is here on the show today at St. Stans, including Producer Nick and his friend Kimmie too, and things are going good, unfortunately, Father Anthony's friend, a very good friend of his, sadly passed this morning at 9 AM and Father Anthony shares many fond, great, and memorable memories of their times together. Father Anthony recently saw him last week as well, sharing those moments with everyone as well. It's also sad because it's the 35th Anniversary of his vows he made to be in the Priesthood. He also shares some very, tragic stories of those who either recently passed or have in the past, some by tragic suicide, some in the past few weeks. Everyone shares how they feel and as Father Anthony points out, "everyone has a story" here with this subject matter, sad but true you could say. On a similar topic, Father Anthony talks about the tragedy in Waco Texas with a shootout that happened yesterday at a restaurant which involved motorcycle gang and criminals, with many injured and killed, and about over a hundred arrested. Other stories of other tragedies are mentioned too, including recent abortion cases, incidents in World War I and others, past and present. This leads to a historical discussion of many tragedies and victories from history, involving many historical figures.
