Talking about the "things that matter most" on May 18
4:00 –The Grunt Padre
As we approach Memorial Day in a week, we take a look at an extraordinary Navy Chaplain - Fr. Vincent Capodanno – who gave his life ministering to his men in Vietnam.

4:40 – Napa Institute / Hawking, Chopra and God
With the incredible popularity of recent books championing agnosticism or atheism, many people might never know that such books almost completely ignore the considerable evidence for theism uncovered in both physics and philosophy over the past four decades. We talk with Fr. Robert Spitzer about Stephen Hawking, Deepak Chopra and God. We also discuss the Napa Institute and its missions and events.
5:00 – The Lost Years
In The Lost Years, Mary Higgins Clark, America’s Queen of Suspense, has written her most astonishing novel to date. At its center is a discovery that, if authenticated, may be the most revered document in human history—“the holiest of the holy”—and certainly the most coveted and valuable object in the world. Biblical scholar Jonathan Lyons believes he has found the rarest of parchments—a letter that may have been written by Jesus Christ. Stolen from the Vatican Library in the 1500s, the letter was assumed to be lost forever. Now, under the promise of secrecy, Jonathan is able to confirm his findings with several other experts. But he also confides in a family friend his suspicion that someone he once trusted wants to sell the parchment and cash in. Mary Higgins Clark joins us.
