Today on Kresta - August 7, 2009

Talking about the "things that matter most" on August 7

Live from the Catholic Marketing Network Convention

3:00 – The Bible Compass: A Catholic's Guide to Navigating the Scriptures
We’ve long heard the jokes and characitures about Catholics and knowledge of Scripture. But knowing and understanding God’s word is no laughing matter. We talk with Scripture scholar Dr. Ted Sri about his forthcoming book The Bible Compass: A Catholic’s Guide to Navigating the Scriptures.

3:20 – The Future of Catholic Publishing
As we broadcast from the Catholic Marketing Network and talk with publishers, authors, and industry leaders, Mark Brumley, President and C.E.O. of Ignatius Press is here to look at the future of Catholic publishing. Where has it been, where is it now, and where is it headed?

3:40 – The Catholicism Project

The Catholicism Project is an epic series that will be one of the most innovative productions ever to promote the Catholic faith to the world. Fr. Robert Barron has gone from Jerusalem to Rome to Mexico City and beyond - and use art, architecture, literature, music and all the riches of the Catholic tradition to tell an inspiring story and draw people into the faith. We talk about the 10-part series and his recent filming in Spain and Lourdes.

4:00 – The Catholic Writers’ Guild
The Catholic Writers' Guild, in conjunction with the Catholic Marketing Network, is hosting the Catholic Writers’ Conference LIVE! this week. Panel discussions/workshops and presentations include world building, generating query letters, crafting good stories, marketing finished works, honing speaking skills, and more. Catholic magazines, devotionals, novels and educational materials are incorporated as publishers/editors and authors cover various aspects of Catholic writing. We talk with Karina Fabian and Ann Lewis of the Guild.

4:40 – APA Dismisses Gay-to-Straight Therapy
There is no firm evidence that sexual orientation can be changed through therapy, so mental health professionals should not tell conflicted gay clients that they can become heterosexual with such treatments. That according to the American Psychological Association. Dr. Richard Cohen disagrees and says the evidence is on his side. He joins us.

5:00 – Kresta Comments

5:20 – Fulton Sheen on the Priesthood

In this year for priests, Fr. Andrew Apostoli, the postulator for the cause for canonization of Archbishop Fulton Sheen says that we should be looking to Sheen for his writings on the priesthood. Originally given as a retreat for Irish clergy in 1977, we look at Sheen’s Called and Chosen: The Never Changing Face of the Priesthood, in which he shares with remarkable frankness and amazing precision, his thoughts and feelings on what it means to be a priest of God.

5:40 – The Domestic Church
Pope John Paul II wrote that the “little domestic church, like the greater Church, needs to be constantly and intensely evangelized: hence its duty regarding permanent education in the faith.” That's a tall order for busy Catholic mothers. You might even say it's as big as a house: You wouldn't want to clean the whole thing in one fell swoop but, if you take it one room at a time, you'll get the job done. In a systematic course for mothers that's equally useful for groups and individuals, Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle shows us how to remodel our homes based on the spiritual design of Holy Mother Church.
