4:00 – Pope Benedict XVI: 5 Years Later
Last week was Pope Benedict’s birthday as less as the 5 year anniversary of his election to the Papacy. We have assembled a roundtable of guests to discuss the first 5 years of the reign of Benedict XVI. We look at his travels, his encyclicals, his reforms, the sex abuse scandal, and much much more. Our guests will be Kishore Jayabalan, Matthew Bunson, and Fr. Robert Sirico.
5:00 – No Turning Back: A Witness to Mercy
Many who know of Fr. Donald Calloway know him because of his conversion story. He has spoken of it at conferences, on television, radio, online, and wherever he can spread the message. His new book finally captures in print how Divine Mercy, through the intercession of the Blessed Mother, touched his life. In his own words, No Turning Back recounts Fr. Donald's personal story of conversion after reading a book about Our Lady. Though today he is a devout Catholic Marian priest, Fr. Donald's early years were no indication of what was to come. Before his conversion to Catholicism, he was a high school dropout who had been kicked out of a foreign country, institutionalized twice and thrown in jail multiple times. We look at how Our Lady led to his conversion and ardent love of Mary and the Church.
