4:00 – Funeral for Aborted Babies Saturday in Lansing, MI
The bishop of the Diocese of Lansing, Earl Boyea, will celebrate the funeral Mass for 17 victims of abortion and preside at their burial this Saturday, November 20 at 11 AM at St. Mary's Cathedral in Lansing, Michigan. The Mass will be followed by the burial of the babies at St. Joseph's Cemetery. Monica Miller of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society is here to tell us about how these babies were found and how this funeral came about.
4:20 – Is Salvation Possible Outside the Catholic Church?
On this day in the year 1302 Pope Boniface VIII published "Unam Sanctam," declaring there is "One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church" outside of which there is "neither salvation nor remission of sins." Apologist Jimmy Akin is here to look at what we mean when we say that there's "no salvation outside the Church"? Does that mean a Methodist can't be saved? What about a Hindu?
5:00 – Verbum Domini
Pope Benedict has issued the post-synodal apostolic exhortation Verbum Domini (The Word of the Lord), the most important Church document devoted to Sacred Scripture since the Second Vatican Council’s Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation (Dei Verbum), which was promulgated in 1965. The publication of Verbum Domini follows the twelfth ordinary general assembly of the Synod Of Bishops, which took place in 2008 and was devoted to “The Word of God in the Life and the Mission of the Church.” We delve into it with Dr. Steve Smith of Mt. St Mary’s Semiary.
5:30 – Ignatius Press to Publish Pope’s Interview Book

The book will be published in English next wee by Ignatius Press. We talk to Ignatius Press Founder and Editor, Jesuit Father Joseph Fessio.
