The gangs all here and everyone has lots on their minds. For one thing, Christina shares about the scammers that everyone encounters on the phone, as well as other ways. She also shares how it affected her family too. This brings up how it happens all around us and how millions of people fall to scammers trying to get you and your money. This brings up how trusting and untrusting people are and can be, leading up to many putting up their guard. Another thing is tonight is the beginning of the Feast Day of the Assumption, with much to prepare for and history on that and in a way related to the scammers discussion and our need for faith.
Happy Monday everyone and she is very happy to be here. Today, she is joined by two very special guests to discuss the March for Life: Barry Smith and Brian Polacek of the International Catholic Media Association. They discuss the formation of the March for Life and explain its creation, importance, usage, and long run for so many years. They also discuss one other major topic, talking about The First Seven Steps; the docuseries all about the March for Life: its founding members, creation, impact on everyone, and more.

TGIF and everyone is here with us, Father Anthony, Christina, and Tony. Father Anthony starts off with how he had a very early start to today at 3 AM, but he continues the subject on yesterday’s show a bit more, with the ups and downs of life. This time, the focus is on The Feast Day of St Lawrence today and relates to the ups and downs and forces that are against us due to them. From this, Father Anthony asks Tony and Christina, as well as all of you, about the importance of prayer, providing some very inspirational answers in order to show the need for prayer. Some answers are along the lines of those being honest and other answers are for those who are bored with prayer or bored at times with prayer these days.
Everyone is “flying” in today, with Father Anthony just coming from a funeral at St Stans for people he’s known for 28 years and Tony and Christina are “flying” in too. With coming off a funeral, Father Anthony shares some of the more depressing aspects of life, such as sadness, grief, loss, and other hard feelings we all feel with going through not only the loss of a family member and/or friend, but in life itself. On the other hand, everyone shares all the good, fun, joy, and other good things and feelings in life, as well as our faith in God. Today is also the Feast Day of Edith Stein and Father Anthony shares her words on this too.
Due to Father Koys being away for a golf outing, celebrating his Parish's 182nd Anniversary, this is a reair from July 18th. Thank you.
In a change of pace on the show today, Father Koys is with us as usual, but for a few minutes he has on his phone, Mary FioRito, who usually hosts the show Mondays but is traveling this month. Both Father Koys and Mary discuss her traveling Washington D.C. with her family and seeing all the sights there. Mary shares some of her on going work within the Pro-Life Community as well. Both also discuss how things are different with the generations of today vs the ones from yesteryear, including the intellectual areas. After talking to Mary, Father Koys looks further at political topics that are around us today and says we’re in an Identity War.

It’s back to basics on this Tuesday, for the gangs all here: Father Anthony, Christina, and Tony are back. With summer coming to an end, everyone is preparing for the kids to come back to school at Saint Stanislaus Kostka School, bringing flashbacks of everyone’s time in school and going back to school. From this, Father Anthony brings up the concepts of hope and realism with what is going on in the world, including being pessimistic. This also brings up the darkness in the world. Father Anthony shares a message from Our Lady of Lasalette that relates to the times today and another need for reformation.
Mary FioRito returns to us on this first full week of August 2018 and she is very happy to be here, after traveling for the last 5 weeks. Today, she is joined by Jill Stanek, a pro-life activist and leader within the Pro-Life Community. Jill Stanek herself has done a lot of work for the Pro-Life Community and one of these areas that has put so much at risk for Jill is the discovery of what she calls, “live birth” abortions, which she shares, discusses and saw from being a nurse at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, IL. She also talks about her testimony against former President Barack Obama on the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. For more information on Mary FioRito and Jill Stanek, visit online at:

Father Koys returns and picks up the discussion from where he left off on Tuesday. This time, when talking about the Jesuits and their suppression and oppression, he makes a very good, and very cool reference this time to help: Batman. In particular, the famous Batman TV show from 1966 and by using this famous hero, along with other historical references, Father Koys relates an episode from the show he recently watched and compares it to what happened to Jesuits in the past, which in turn relates to today. He looks further into history of more on the Jesuits oppression and suppression.
