4:20 – Born to Love
Many Christians today find it hard to accept that "homosexuality is wrong" based on the Bible or Church authority: it seems to contradict what they know to be obviously OK and normal. Others are convinced that gay-lesbian lifestyle is wrong, but have no answer for those who justify it with Scripture. Fr.

5:00 – Walking with the Guardian Angels
More than half of all adults, including one in five of those who say they are not religious, believe that they have been protected by a guardian angel during their life. With today’s feast of the Guardian Angels upon us, we talk with Joan Wester Anderson, who has collected astonishing first-hand accounts of the presence of angels among us: a dying infant inexplicably recovers after an encounter with a mysterious visitor; a long-lost son suddenly returns home for Christmas; a young man drowning in an icy river unaccountably finds himself on shore; a grieving widow, alone and far from home, receives comfort and counsel from angels in disguise. These stories and dozens of others show ordinary people taking their needs to God. All of them received what they needed from a loving God who responded to their deepest needs. She shares these stories of angels among us.
