Today on Kresta - October 13, 2010

Talking about the "things that matter most" on Oct. 13

4:00 – A Simple Guide to the Spiritual Life
The Church says, "Pray," but how do you do that?
The Priest said, "Read your Bible," but how do you do that?
The visiting priest said, "You should try meditation," but how do you do that?
Mark Kurowski is here to look at different aspects of spirituality. Based upon his book, A Simple Guide to the Spiritual Life, he brings all of the technical jargon of spirituality down to earth.

4:40 – Running for US Congress in MI’s 15th District
What will happen when America goes to the polls in November is anyone’s guess, but one thing is for sure, turnout promises to be significantly above that of the average midterm elections. And that is exactly what Dr. Rob Steele is counting on in Michigan’s 15th District. He joins us to discuss his race against US Congressman John Dingell.

5:00 – Kresta Comments

5:20 – Dissenters Form The American Catholic Council: The Archdiocese of Detroit Issues a Warning
Claiming that they are attempting to address the “serious deterioration of the US Church today,” organizers of a new Catholic reform organization are planning a national conclave in 2011 called the American Catholic Council. In what is being billed as a kind of off-site Vatican Council, the gathering promises “thoughtful discussion” of scholarly papers and presentations by Catholic theologians, scholars, and activists—all directed toward the goal of creating a new Church that is “fully in tune with the authentic Gospel message.” It’s called the American Catholic Council and is an attempt to resurrect the ashes of “Call to Action” along with many other famous dissident groups. Now, the Archdiocese of Detroit has spoken out warning the faithful against their lies. Al has been researching the group and has a report for us.

5:40 – A Pastoral Approach to Liturgical Change
The Vatican has given its approval to the proposed U.S. version of the new edition of the Roman Missal. Benedict XVI expressed his hope that the change in translation will serve "as a springboard for a renewal and a deepening of Eucharistic devotion all over the English-speaking world."A statement from the U.S. bishops clarified that the complete text of the Roman Missal is still being edited by Vatican officials, but is expected later this spring, when it will be prepared for publication. We talk to Deacon William Ditewig about preparing the faithful for changes in the liturgy.

  1. I have a comment for Mark. I was listening to the broadcast (loving it as always) and I believe that the programs that Mark is heading up right now is what the Catholic Church should be. I would strongly recommend to Mark to try and found an organization that does what he is doing now and spreads it to all Catholic Churches across the USA. A major source of funding should be the USCCB fund that seems to have a hard time finding truly Catholic organizations to support with it fundraisers. It won't be easy but all things are possible for God and I suspect you could get a good bit of help from the Laity on something truly worthy of their time.
