After being away for a bit, Mary FioRito is back with us on this Monday and she once again is very excited. For one thing, on the show she discusses the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex that was held on Saturday. Mary, along with her special guest: Father Mike McGovern, Pastor from St Raphael the Archangel, discuss all the coverage before, during, and after the wedding. With that in mind, they discuss marriage even further and other current events within the Catholic Church and the world. For more information on Mary and Father McGovern, visit online:

Due to Father Anthony being busy conducting a funeral today, this is a reair from April 20th. Thank you.
TGIF everyone as April now starts to feel more like April. Father Anthony is here and he is flying solo today, until Christina (Tony a bit later) arrives. Today, stress seems to be the word of the day and on everyones mind, due to lots of things going on, which Father Anthony says “obey the laws of God and have a balance of life.” Father Anthony reminds all that God is here and He knows everything that we are going through and helps and protects as any parent would to their children. With God in mind, Father Anthony continues his discussion from yesterday and Tuesday, but another component this time is: The Wrath Of God and the consequences in not believing in Him and/or rejecting Him.
It’s Thursday and Father Anthony talks about something exciting he did, for he went to see the play/musical Jesus Christ Superstar. He shares with Christina and Tony, as well as all of our listeners, his own personal review on the show. Tony and Christina also share their opinions too on the show. On a more painful note, Father Anthony is still dealing with the funeral for the children who recently passed which he thought about during the show, relating to “the reality of Life” he points out and is thinking about. From this review, Father Anthony continues his discussion on how we experience the joys/gifts and suffering in life.
It’s Wednesday and that means it’s brain wrinkling time with Father Koys and Tony. Once again, Father Koys is excited to talk about history, but this time in terms of looking at the Protestant Reformation and its discussion from last week. He and Tony also discuss further the topic of Holy Forgetfulness again. Another aspect explored here is Unholy Forgetfulness too, with Father Koys sharing many examples of each. Some with many historical figures, including Thomas Jefferson and Henry the 8th, and with Henry in mind, the discussion of marriage, divorce, and annulments are brought up.
It’s Tuesday and the gang is all here and to start off, since Mother’s Day was last week, Father Anthony wishes a Post Happy Mother’s Day, especially Mary the Mother of God. However, Father Anthony encourages all to donate to Winds of Change to help and Father Anthony talks about the recent tragic fire that happened in Humble Park. With this and all the tragedy happening, Father Anthony reminds us to keep our faith. With mothers, Mother’s Day, and Mary the Mother of God in mind, Father Anthony focuses on motherhood in terms of all things in Life, as well as the suffering part of mothers.
Due to Mary FioRito being away due to work, this is a reair from Apirl 16th. Thank you.
Happy Monday everyone and Mary FioRito is back with us again and the show is very special today because tomorrow, is the Third Anniversary of the Passing of Cardinal George. Mary is joined again with Mike Stark and Father Dan Flens, who worked and was even a roommate to Cardinal George. With that in mind and in his honor, Mary, Mike and Father Flens once again share the history, life, and legacy of one of the most influential, powerful, and thoughtful men that served in the Church. Some include personal stories surrounding him. For more information, visit online at the following:

TGIF and it seems that spring/summer has faded for a day today, with an autumn feeling in the air. Father Anthony has much going on today, for one thing a meeting with Bishop Rojas for Saint Stanislaus Kostka and talking about keeping the show on the radio again for financial reasons, along with Producer Armand doing a little promoting to help. From this, Father Anthony talks about many things with Tony and all, including the bosses of the Church, since he’s meeting with the Bishop later. One more topic is more on the Ascension that was celebrated yesterday and more to come.
TGIAF on another beautiful day in Chicago, as Father Anthony says at the start of the show. Today, he, Christina, and Tony are excited because this is the Feast Day of the Ascension today, with much to prepare for it. First things first, Father Anthony talks about what has been going on and around us and how it affects the Catholic Culture. Another subject for discussion is the change from Boy Scouts to just Scouts now and it brings up more on the concept of bullying and a need for distinctions with things in society. From all this, including struggles and suffering, it leads to talking about the Ascension of Christ.
It’s just the boys again today, with Father Koys and Tony here on the show. They are in the mood for more brain wrinkling this hour this week and today Father Koys has much to discuss. For one thing, he wants to go through is rehashing problems from the past to today’s time. This time, the 16th Century around the 1500s is where he is looking. This brings to mind many things including the most significant thing in religious history besides the birth of Christ: The Protestant Reformation was a great disaster, according to author Hilaier Beloc.
The gang is all here once again, as Father Anthony is back from his recent treatments/trip to Rochester and is very happy to be back and as always joined by Christina and Tony. For one thing, it’s a beautiful day in Chicago and although it feels like summer, its spring with the trees coming back, flowers blooming, and the birds are back. However, Father Anthony shares some things from the weekend, including a poem he read. It relates to again the stress and stressful times people face, particularly the young. With all this in mind, everyone tries to resolve this stress by finding peace and healing.
