Talking about the "things that matter most" on Sept. 30
4:00 – How the Mass Shaped Western Culture
The annual Call to Holiness Conference will be held in two weeks at the Shrine of the Little Flower in Royal Oak, MI. The theme for the day is “Treasures of the Mass.” Participants will hear topics such as The Sacredness of the Holy Eucharist and the Fathers of the Church, True Active Participation in the Mass, Sacred Music, and more. Dr. Michael Foley will speak on “How the Mass Shaped Western Culture” and is with us today to look at that topic.
4:20 – Word Pictures: Knowing God Through Story & Imagination
At a contentious intersection of faith and contemporary culture, Brian Godawa offers what many have been calling for: balance. In a world (and often a church) torn by imbalanced devotion to either word or image, Godawa joins the two with a needed 'and.' He shows a well-developed literacy for both forms of communication, shows how the Bible incorporates both and challenges us to engage our culture creatively and redemptively on both fronts.
5:00 – Abortion in America: A Wide-Ranging In-Studio Interview
The Susan B. Anthony List is a national organization dedicated to advancing, representing and mobilizing pro-life women in politics. Their president is Marjorie Dannenfelser and she joins us in studio to look at abortion and health care, current legislative debates on Capitol Hill, the pro-life cause and the Catholic church, women in politics, as well as her personal pro-life conversion story.
