Today on Kresta - November 22, 2010

Talking about the "things that matter most" on Nov. 22
4:00 – Defying Deletion: Violence Against Christians in Iraq
Andre Anton is a 26-year-old Assyrian filmmaker who lost two cousins in the massacre earlier this month at the Iraqi church, Our Lady of Salvation. He recently produced a documentary, "Defying Deletion" about the violence against civilians in post-war Iraq and joins us to look at this issue.

4:20 – Walking Together: Discovering the Catholic Tradition of Spiritual Friendship
Catholic journalist Mary DeTurris Poust writes with simplicity and directness about spiritual friendship--the connection people can make when they trust one another with matters of the soul. It's a lot different from Facebook friending; the author defines it as "two people bound together by a love of God." She draws on a variety of writings, from the biblical tale of Ruth and Naomi to the correspondence between such sainted pairs as Francis de Sales and Jane de Chantal, in illustrating the depth of such a connection.

4:40 - Why Enough Is Never Enough: Overcoming Worries About Money --A Catholic Perspective
No amount of money will ever lift your anxiety. This may seem counter-intuitive, but in Gregory Jeffrey we have an experienced guide. With degrees in business and theology, he has worked as a development consultant for two decades. In meeting with thousands of individuals to ask their support for various causes, he discovered to his amazement that some people with millions worried constantly about money; others of very modest means seemed immune. Apparently, making peace with money entails something other than money. This insight led Jeffrey to question every fundamental assumption we hold about wealth. With warmth, humor, and a writing style as simple as the Dakota prairie he grew up on, he offers a unique perspective on the interplay between our spiritual and financial lives. Rich with images, stories, and compassion for the millions now burdened with financial worries, Jeffrey teases out what is required of the soul who wishes to be free of anxiety. He joins us.

5:00 – How the Catholic Church Built Western Civilization
The world owes a debt to the Catholic Church that it doesn't even realize. The Church built, and sustains, Western Civilization. She has had a pivotal role in shaping Western civilization for the last two thousand years. Tom Woods joins us in studio to discuss how the father of atomic theory, the father of aviation, and the father of Egyptology were all Catholic priests; how Catholic priests developed the idea of free-market economics five hundred years before Adam Smith; how the Church was the great defender of the sanctity of human life and the individual against the state; and how the Church bestowed the most unique gift to the World what we now know as the university.

5:40 – Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist to be on Oprah again Tomorrow
The Dominican Sisters of Mary will be featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show again tomorrow. This is a new show that includes interviews with Mother Assumpta, Sr. Jose ph Andrew, Sr. Mary Samuel, Sr. John Dominic and other Sisters; as well as on-site filming of the First and Final Profession Masses and this year’s Entrance Day, during which they welcomed 22 Aspirants. The show will also feature the experience of a Sister entering religious life and the meaning of religious profession as being ‘married’ to Christ. We talk with Sr. Joseph Andrew.
