Today on Kresta - November 19, 2010

Talking about the "things that matter most" on Nov. 19

4:00 – Gifts to Notre Dame plunged $120M during year of Obama’s appearance. Just the economy?
Contributions to the University of Notre Dame fell by over $120 million, or roughly 30%, during the fiscal year in which President Barack Obama was awarded an honorary degree. Several dozen bishops criticized the university’s decision during the months preceding the May 17, 2009, commencement ceremony, and an alumni group called for the withholding of donations. Is it just the economy or is there more to the story? David DiFranco, Notre Dame graduate and Spokesman for has done the research and has the numbers.

4:20 – Finance Friday: “Inside Job”
Today we continue our series intended to fully explore the practical, political, moral and philosophical underpinnings of the financial meltdown of 2008. Our guide will be Dr. Max Torres and each “Financial Friday” we will be using as a base of discussion, one book written on an aspect of the financial crisis. Today, we mix things up a bit and review the documentary “Inside Job.”

5:00 - An Historic Look at the Catholic Church and Culture
The Catholic Church. It began as a small band of supporters following the teachings of an itinerant preacher in an outpost of the Roman Empire. From there, the church expanded both its size and its importance in the grand scheme of Western history. Today, the church is the oldest continuously active organization on Earth and one of the most influential institutions in the world—a force capable of moving armies, inspiring saints, and shaping the lives of a billion members. Dr. William Cook has done a teaching series on “The Catholic Church: A History” and today joins us to talk specifically about the history of the Church and Culture.
