Talking about the "things that matter most" on Feb. 27
GUEST HOST: PETER HERBECK
4:00 – Spiritual Combat
Last year Pope Benedict XVI said "Lent is like a long 'retreat' during which we can turn back into ourselves and listen to the voice of God, in order to defeat the temptations of the Evil One. It is a period of spiritual 'combat' which we must experience alongside Jesus, not with pride and presumption, but using the arms of faith: prayer, listening to the word of God and penance. In this way we will be able to celebrate Easter in truth, ready to renew the promises of our Baptism". Ralph Martin is here to discuss the daily reality of spiritual combat.
4:40 – ChristLife: Equiping Catholic for the New Evangelization
ChristLife is a lay Catholic ministry established in 1995 in response to the Church's call to a new evangelization. The vision is to equip Catholics for the essential work of evangelization so that others might come to know personally the love of God through Jesus Christ, in the Holy Spirit, becoming his followers and members of the Church. Assistant Director Pete Ascosi is with us.
5:00 – Discipleship
“The task of evangelizing all people constitutes the essential mission of the Church. Evangelizing is in fact the grace and vocation proper to the Church, her deepest identity. She exists in order to evangelize.” (On Evangelization in the Modern World). We talk with Paco Gavriledes, Director of Evangelization in the Archdiocese of Detroit, about evangelization and discipleship.
5:30 – Fellowship of Catholic University Students
From its humble beginnings at Benedictine College in 1998 with two lay missionaries, to today’s missionary staff of over 260 serving on 60 campuses- the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS)( has grown every year.
