Today Father Anthony, as usual has many things on his mind today, however Gerri is very happy to be here on the show again and feels very good about things today.  Tony however is having a “Tony Day” that is a cold dark (which it is outside) day and Christina is feeling good.  Despite all that, Father Anthony can’t complain with how well and good the Jubilee Year is going for St. Stans this year and he is good too.  The show starts with talking about how the weather once again is in conflict with itself that is the weather keeps going up and down or cold and warm through the weeks of April and leading into May.  He also shares how he recently wrote the Mother’s Day Letter too, with also lots coming up.  With the Apparition on Father Anthony’s mind, this he focuses on more as the show goes on.  This also brings to mind the sign of the times of today, in terms of pornography and the way that dress styles have changed, as well as mannerisms which have become the norm today.  Father Anthony and everyone once again talk of the recent tragedies around the world, including recent Churches closing and more tragedy across the globe, allowing Father Anthony to ask the main question, “What has happened…?”  What follows is Father Anthony reminds us that there is no peace, without God, resulting in this “upside down” world we live in, as everyone on the show says.  Father Anthony also shares about a dream he had, which relates to the chaos around the world.  He also shares once again, the story of Bruce Jenner to Caitlyn Jenner, leading to a strange time as Father Anthony keeps saying, strange as in how things have changed in society.

As the title says, it’s the First Friday of May and Geoff Hammond is once again here with us to allow us to “make time for The Lord” and give Him adoration as Geoff always says.  He wishes everyone had and is having a wonderful Easter, due to Easter passed and we are in the Easter Season.  He offers prayer that are related to Easter.  He offers other prayers designed to allow us to show Adoration and Reparation to God and show that He loves and guides us, as well as provides us mercy, when we ask for it, need it, and/or seek it.  He also offers sayings and prayers from Saint Ignatius related to what he’s talking about today.  As usual for Friday Friday’s, Geoff has special moments on the show to allow us to be reminded of God being there for us, as well as we offer adoration to Him, including a Daily Examine that is very important, allowing us to show us how God’s gratitude is shown and that we are indeed not alone in the times we go through and Geoff talks about the Sacred Heart of today too.

Epsiode # 1677 – Father Anthony On Being Interviewed

Father Anthony and group are back live on the show today and are very happy to be here again.  For one thing, Father Anthony talks about his latest “stardom” being interviewed still after the 150 Anniversary Celebration going on and the second good thing is that Christina is back from her trip to Mexico for a wedding she and her family attended last week, with her talking about all the fun and excitement that happened as well as the beautiful weather and scenery around there.  However the show takes a bit of a grim turn with talking about some very serious subject matter after Christina brings up some of her family history.  Father Anthony also talks about being interviewed by WGN this morning too on a more interesting and fun subject for a new show/program that is starting up and feature Saint Stanislaus Kostka as subject matter and since the Jubilee Year too.  With all this in mind, everyone brings their opinions to the show today.  This raises more on the people around, not just around St Stans, but all around us and how things are today. This comes to mind that Father Anthony feels that many have lost their faith, not just in a sense of “feeling” but in terms of statistics and signs of the times too.

Episode # 1676 – Promoting The Wisdom Of John Adams

Father Koys is back with us and Tony joins us today and as always, Father Koys, is “going to need a bigger boat” as the most famous line from Jaws fills the void on that with Father Koys having much to discuss today and not enough time to discuss it, LOL.  But he starts off continuing his discussion from last week on John Adams and focuses on 1826 in history and the letters he wrote.  He also goes into talking about Stanley Bell as well here and finding “cracks” as well.  He provides some historical readings surrounding these men and things with them. With trying to promote the wisdom of John Adams, Father Koys brings to mind an audio segment he heard from a recent speech given, challenging that statement, in the past and present sense, which in a way in the historical sense led to the formation of the United States Itself.  He also shares several radio heroes Father Koys has with this speech in mind.  He also uses some more Star Wars references to illustrate some of the points too, including pointing out the greatest character, Darth Vader here and the “Power of the dark side here.”

Episode # 1675 - Having Faith And Needing Faith

Due to scheudling conflicts, this is a rebroadcast from April 18th, 2017.  Thank you.

After a bit of a late start and due to scheduling conflicts, Father Anthony wasn't sure if he was going to make it today, however he does later on.  Also it's a bit shorter than most shows due to Father Anthony making it in a bit later.  He has much to discuss to with himself today, due to everyone thought that he was going to not make it.  However, he's here and he wishes everyone a Happy Easter and hopes everyone also had a happy Easter over the weekend too.  He focuses at the start a bit on today on people from the Moody Bible Institute todday and some he met. But his main focus today, since Easter was over the weekend, Father Anthony talks about our Faith, not just individual but also as a whole people.  Also, with Easter passing, Father Anthony talks about topics related to the subject matter of Easter, related mostly to Jesus Himself and Faith.  Father Anthony also points out that he was a bit late to the show due to doing another radio interview about upcoming events during this Easter Season, especially the upcoming Jubilee Mass this Sunday and invites everyone to come out and see what is going on. He also points out, with the Jubilee Mass going one, Father Anthony shares he has another interview later on and has much work going on, feeling God has much for him to do, if not just today, but also during the Easter Season that we are in for 50 Days.
