4:20 – Milwaukee priest publishes op-ed advocating women priests
Sixteen years after Venerable John Paul II declared that “the Church has no authority whatsoever to confer priestly ordination on women and that this judgment is to be definitively held by all the Church’s faithful,” a priest of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee has written a newspaper column stating that the ordination of women would make “better sense” because women are more fitting images of the Church as the Bride of Christ. Father Victor Capriolo, a pastor in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, wrote, “To study the Church is to realize that the one constant in her history has been change.” We talk about this with Dr. Monica Miller.

5:20 – Infinite Bandwidth: Encountering Christ in the Media
Franciscan University of Steubenville Professor Eugene Gan has written the first-of-its-kind Catholic roadmap for the digital age: Infinite Bandwidth: Encountering Christ in the Media. He navigates you faithfully through the digital world, encouraging frustrated parents not to throw out cell phones, ban the Internet, chuck computers, or pitch portable media devices. That would be a mistake and believe it or not would be going against more than seven decades of Catholic teaching. From Church documents on social communications, Gan extracts seven principles or media keys of how to approach and use media. The Church and Gan say that we must enter into the modern day Areopagus, the social and intellectual hub of ancient Athens where Paul preached to pagans, and use the media tools God has given us to make truth known and serve mankind.
