Talking about the "things that matter most" on Aug. 9
4:00 - Kresta Commentary – The Tragedy of the Prop 8 Decision
4:20 – Revealing Revelation
No other New Testament book matches Revelation for its symbolism and richness of imagery. And yet perhaps no other New Testament book has fostered so much confusion, fascination, and artistic expression. Until now, reading Revelation and meditating on its message has been daunting and mystifying. This need not be the case. It is God's hope-filled message in the face of fear and uncertainty. It is a beautiful book essential to Christian worship and theology. Fr. Bertrand Buby is here to unlock the mystery of Revelation.
5:00 – 1 Federal Judge vs 7 Million Voters – Prop 8 Overturned
As most of you are probably aware, last week a U.S. District Court judge for the Northern District of California ruled that there is a fundamental U.S. federal Constitutional right to marriage that extends to same-sex couples under the Due Process and Equal Protection clauses of the 14th Amendment. The 138-page ruling is astounding and deserves a critical analysis. Professor and Attorney Kenneth Ware of Franciscan University of Steubenville is here to do just that.
5:20 – Bloody Sunday News Package – Garreth Peoples
Bloody Sunday was an incident on January 30, 1972 in the Bogside area of Derry. Northern Ireland, in which twenty-six unarmed civil rights protesters and bystanders were shot by members of the British Army. Thirteen men, seven of whom were teenagers, died immediately or soon after, while the death of another man four and a half months later has been attributed to the injuries he received on that day. Five of those wounded were shot in the back. Following a twelve-year inquiry, a report was made public on June 15 of this year 2010, and contained findings of fault that could re-open the controversy, and potentially lead to criminal investigations for some soldiers involved in the killings. Irish journalist and Ave Maria Radio Correspondent Garreth Peoples has a report.
5:40 – Feast of St. Teresa Benedicta (Edith Stein) The Four Teresas
On this feast of Teresa Benedicta, we tale an out-of-the-box look at four of the greatest women of the Church, and what their example can mean for you. Therese of Lisieux, Teresa of Avila, Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, and Mother Teresa. Who wouldn t want these women as friends and guides? Lively, determined, devout but never passive, they were all straight-shooters with an abundance of common sense. They were also deeply in love with God, clinging to him with a tenacity that freed them to do the impossible. We look at the 4 Teresas with Gina Loehr.
