Today on Kresta - May 13, 2011

Talking about the "things that matter most" on May 13

4:00 – Usama Bin Laden Brought to Justice: What Does This Mean for the War on Terror
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that the U.S. message to al-Qaeda remains the same today, but it "might have even greater resonance" in the wake of Osama bin Laden's death. Clinton said bin Laden's death was a milestone in the war on terrorism, but stressed that the "battle to stop al-Qaeda and its syndicate of terror" is not over. Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch is here to look at Bin Laden and the future of the War on Terrorism.

4:20 – Blessed John Paul the Great’s Vision for Our Mission
Blessed John Paul the Great focused in a special way on what he described as the “new evangelization” called for by “the new and unique situation in which the world and the church find themselves at the threshold of the third millennium, and the urgent needs which result.” The pope's call to a new evangelization is a prophetic and revolutionary calling to the Roman Catholic Church. He saw the need for a "great relaunching" of evangelization in the present life of the Church in a variety of ways. Peter Herbeck is Vice-President and Director of Missions at Renewal Ministries and joins us to look at Blessed John Paul the Great’s vision for our mission.

4:40 – Money, Greed and God
Does capitalism promote greed? Can a person follow Jesus' call to love others and also support capitalism? Was our recent economic crisis caused by flaws inherent to our free market system? Jay Richards presents a new approach to capitalism, revealing how it's fully consistent with Jesus’ teachings and the Christian tradition, while also showing why this system is our best bet for renewed economic vigor. Jay is here to discuss Money, Greed, and God.

5:00 – A Biblical Walk Through the Mass
As Catholics, the Mass is the center of our Faith. We celebrate it every day. We know all the responses. We know all the gestures. But do we know what it all means? Dr. Edward Sri takes us on a unique tour of the Liturgy. Based on the revised translation of the Mass which goes into effect Advent, 2011, he explores the biblical roots of the words and gestures we experience in the Liturgy and explains their profound significance.

5:20 – There Be Dragons – Through the Eyes of a Friend of St. Jose Maria Escriva
An agnostic Englishman makes a film about a Catholic saint during the Spanish Civil War--another Hollywood hatchet job? Hardly. Roland Joffé's There Be Dragons---is a compelling portrayal of the priesthood, of the Faith, and of St Josemaría Escrivá, the founder of Opus Dei. The winning power of Escrivá's life and personality is no surprise to those who knew him, like the American scholar John Coverdale. John lived and worked with the saint for seven years and is the author of Uncommon Faith: The Early Years of Opus Dei. He joins us.

5:40 – Art for God’s Sake
Art for God’s Sake is a juried, professional art show that highlights sacred themes. The 3-day, multi-faceted exhibition includes an elegant opening-night gala, interactive art demos, and educational opportunities for all! It also showcases the non-juried artwork of well-known artists and local clergy. The inspiring art celebration, a rarity in the Archdiocese of Detroit, will be presented May 13-15, 2011 on the campus of St. Anastasia Roman Catholic Church in Troy, Michigan. We talk with the man with the vision – Fr. J.J. Mech.

  1. WOW I just listened to the guest Robert Spencer from (Jihadwatch dot org) on this show. This was AMAZING and I really hope that you will have him back. Thank you for bringing him to the radio in the DC area. He is a "rock star" in the field of Islamism.

    Surely the world faces an extreme threat from Islam right now in a way that it never has before. And it is not helpful for the truth to (ever) be distorted on this topic.

    I appreciate the information and clarity brought to this subject by you and your guest.

    Again - PLEASE have him on again!

    God bless,

    A listener
