Talking about the "things that matter most" on Aug. 4
Live from the Catholic Marketing Network in Philadelphia
4:00 – Summer of Mercy 2.0
In response to what the Holy Spirit is doing in this hour, there is currently a “Summer of Mercy” happening in Germantown, Maryland at the abortion mill of LeRoy Carhart. The desire is to see a sovereign God powerfully move, shift history, bring awakening to our nation and end abortion. From July 30 though August 7 there is 24/7 prayer and worship, inspiring evening rallies with national political and Christian leaders and cutting edge public events. Irene Langan is on scene to report for us.
4:20 - The Catholic Writers Guild Organization and Retreat
Are you a Catholic writer loyal to the Magisterium and looking for a group of like-minded writers determined to assist each other in our publishing goals? Are you an editor, publisher, or illustrator interested in furthering the development of quality faith-filled writings? If so, the Catholic Writers' Guild may be for you. We talk wit Anne Lewis and Pat Ghon about the guild and an upcoming retreat for guild members.
4:40 - The God’s Child Project / The Big Differences in Writing for the Catholic or Secular Space
For the past three years, Luke Armstrong has worked as director of social services for the God's Child Project in Guatemala, an international program to help break the cycle of poverty. Last month, he gave his parents, Mark and Patti Armstrong a trip there for 30th wedding anniversary. Patti says they were among the elite that day -- those privileged to experience survival at the bottom. For it is there, at the dump, that the soul lays bare, stripped of any shred of status. Perhaps she says, in this case it was our souls that were bared. Patti joins us to share the experience.
5:00 – “Register Radio”
EWTN radio has decided to launch a new half-hour, weekly radio program called "Register Radio," hosted by long-time Register writer Tim Drake. The goal of "Register Radio" is to go into greater depth on particular Register or breaking stories and blog posts. The program is slated to air on the EWTN radio network beginning in September in the afternoon on Fridays, with repeats on Saturday and Sunday. Tim is here to discuss his new career as a radio host.
5:20 – Supremacy and Survival
Stephanie Mann is the author of Supremacy and Survival - How Catholics Endured the English Reformation and has been a guest on the show in anticipation of the Pope’s visit to the UK last year. Now she joins us in person here at the Catholic Marketing Network. She tells the story of the Catholic Church's survival and restoration in one land. It serves both as a lesson and a warning of the risks to faith and freedom when absolute power is given free reign.
