Episode # 1713 – Feast Of The Sacred Heart 2017

TGIF and once again everyone is “flying” in for the show today, with Christina and Father Anthony being the only ones on the show, at least at the start, saying Tony is on his way.  The latest Gerri update is given by Christina and says that she is having her procedure that they have talked about today, so all of us at Winds of Change and listeners offer their thoughts and prayers for her and a speedy recovery.  Also, Producer Nick is happy today celebrating his 6 months with his girlfriend too.  On a different note, Father Anthony talks about a project he’s working on, aiming at the “young guys in the neighborhood” he says, offering prayer to those who need to reconnect with God or come back to God, continuing his discussion from yesterday on Atheism.  And as the title says for the show, today is the Feast of the Sacred Heart, so Father Anthony shares some history behind that, as well as it in the modern era now.  This brings up a reminder that God is our companion and guide for us in our lives and a call to have the Lord come to us in a specific way.  Father Anthony shares some Father Son stories that are similar in tone to the Feast of the Sacred Heart, as well as through this, reminds us that God is with us and we are affected by the world and the Spiritual Battle we face, including addictions and other things we are drawn to, resulting in “a sickness,” but that God knows what we are facing and up against, but  is with, helps, and guides us in our times like this, which relates to how some may turn to being Atheists after being in periods of doubt, but being the Sacred Heart proves God has a Heart and loves, cares, guides, and helps us.  Tony joins us after the first break and talks about how his wife was away but is back now and he missed her while she was away, which reignites the discussion a bit from yesterday on vacations.  Father Anthony also shares a story around Max again too, leading to talk about relationships, even after Tony talks about his wife.  With the hour going by quick again, Father Anthony shares some final thoughts with Tony and Christina on the Sacred Heart and how we need God.

Episode # 1712 – What Everyone Likes To Do On Vacation

Today, everyone is happy to be here, Father Anthony pointing out that Tony has “cleaned up” and that is clean shaven and looks different Father Anthony says LOL.  However, on a more serious note, Gerri who accidentally drove her car into here garage and in the process has injured herself in terms of fracturing her spine and everyone offers their thoughts and prayers to her for a full and speedy recovery.  With Christina describing what kind of procedure she’ll be going through.  Another thing everyone seems to be struggling with Father Anthony points out is this summer’s seasonal allergies and continuing in the health area, Father Anthony talks about a recent video and article he read regarding a trampoline.  After talking about all that, after the first break, summer being the time for many to take vacations, Father Anthony asks, not only Tony and Christina, but everyone the question on what people like to do on vacation.  Father Anthony shares a bit on what he’s done, including his Annual trips to Rome and how he’s prayed, as well as talking about our established relationship with God.  Tony and Christina share their ideas of vacation too.  On a different note, Father Anthony takes the discussion on a more serious area, with the subject of Atheism , due to talking about our Faith and relationship with God and how important He and religion are, turning to it and Him in our dark times and doubtful times, allowing Father Anthony to mention some articles he read.  With this in mind, it leads to a very insightful discussion on Atheism vs the belief in God.

Episode # 1711 – More On Religious Tolerance

Father Koys is with Tony and Producer Nick occasionally today and Father Koys is very happy to be here again. However, due to computer and technical problems and updates that occurred by themselves on the air, we apologize for any problems with that, but were worked on during the show. Again, we apologize. Despite that, Father Koys talks more on freedom, religion, religious freedom again as the main focus and picks up the discussion from last week on one of his heroes, Larry Schweikart, author of the book A Patriots History of America and Father Koys, along with Tony feel that they can debater him on his turf, providing some of the audio from one of his recent discussions. Tony and Producer Nick at times voice their views on religious tolerance to help with this debate. Another area Father Koys goes into is religious history in Europe, related to what Schweikart is talking about. Also, due to the computer problems and updates, Father Koys uses that in the show in terms of religious tolerance, meaning and speaking of “updates and glitches that need to be fixed.” This also looks at historical areas of the past involving religion and Catholic Battles, including the Roman Empire, Muslims, and Protestants

It’s Tuesday and today Father Anthony is with Christina and Tony and today is the official First Day of Summer, even though it feels like it’s been here for quite a while now.  The feeling is very good today with everyone and still wishing Gerri a good recovery going through some personal things and surgery too, but we all wish her our thoughts and prayers to her.  With Corpus Christi going on last week, everyone talks about how that celebration went over the weekend, as well as Father’s Day and Producer Nick’s birthday and what Father Anthony was and is working on.  With the recent procession going on this past weekend too, Father Anthony reminds us that Life itself is a procession, that we keep on going and going through things, both good and bad, but guides us and accompanies us with things.  Father Anthony also offers thoughts and prayers for all who are sick this week, including those on St. Stanislaus Kostka’s staff, including the Soup Kitchen.  The Eucharist is the main focus Father Anthony talks about with Tony and Christina, as well as all, reminding us that it is a mystery revolving around this.  Father Anthony continues to point out with this in mind, that many are suffering, not just those friends and staff in the hospital this week, but also the violence going on in Chicago and how we are all connected in a way and with God, affected by many things, with Christina and Tony offering their opinions on this and their feelings on things going on.

Episode # 1706 – Larry Schweikart On Religious Tolerance

It’s Wednesday and as always, Father Koys is here with us again on the show and is very excited to be here.  Picking up this discussion from last week and before, Father Koys talks about one of his heroes, Denis Prager, who has had many discussions in the media surrounding many issues, some that Winds of Change has talked about.  One of the main focuses on here with Denis Prager in mind, is the distinctions between Catholic Christians and Protestant Christians, with Father Koys expressing that in this day and age, we need to work together.  Another of Father Koys heroes he talks about mainly today and tries to analyze what he recently talked about at Prager Univeristy, is Larry Schweikart, who discusses religious tolerance here on the show, provided with a few audio clips of his most recent discussions on this, as well as being a history fan as Father Koys is, many historical parts are brought up from and in America, with religious tolerance and patriotism.  But the audio clips from Larry Schweikart bring to mind the questions and answers that possibly are brought up on religious tolerance.  This discussion raises some key points that you, our listeners, may agree or disagree with since many have their own opinions on things and these topics.  This also raises different views regarding political views too.
