Today on Kresta - September 30, 2011

Talking about the "things that matter most" on Sept. 30

4:00 – Anglicans and the Roman Catholic Church
The beginning of a specifically Anglican liturgy and culture within the Roman Catholic Church was established in the United Sates by Pope John Paul II. Since then, Anglican Use parishes have been worshipping in a distinctively Anglican style within several American dioceses. Thanks to Pope Benedict XVI, these communities are now able to form into personal ordinariates led by bishops who were previously Anglican clergy. As a result, even more Anglicans seeking full communion with Rome can find a home within the Catholic Church. We talk about Anglicans and the Catholic Church with Dr. Janet Smith.

4:40 – Gyrene Burgers
He founded Domino’s Pizza. He owned the Detroit Tigers. He started Ave Maria University and built a town around it. What’s next for Thomas Monaghan? At 74, he’s pursuing a new dream, going back to his roots in the delivery business. This time, it will be gourmet hamburgers, not pizza, that he will bring to the doorstep. Tom joins us to discuss his new venture.

5:00 – Catholic Consciences Under Attack – ACT NOW!!!
This is the final week in which the Department of Health and Human Services is accepting comments from the public on its proposed new rule regarding mandated coverage in insurance programs. The mandate would require insurance plans to include coverage for contraception, sterilization and some drugs that are abortifacients. Catholics of all stripes have been making the case since the day the rule was announced that the conscience exemption it contained was far too narrow. We now encourage everyone to make your voices heard TODAY. Helen Alvare joins us to encourage just that.

5:20 – The Pope & The CEO: John Paul II's Leadership Lessons to a Young Swiss Guard
John Paul II's witness to the reality of God's grace in the life of man, as divine presence and guidance, so inspired and touched the life of one of his body guards, a Swiss guard, that when the latter became an entrepreneur and a CEO, he set himself to emulate the virtues of leadership of the Pope. Andreas Widmer, the Swiss-Guard-turned-CEO gives a personal witness to the successful application of the Pope's leadership virtues in the life of a CEO and offers the same to CEOs. He joins us.


  1. does not cover catholic religious freedom.
    conscious objection is to narrow.

  2. With the New York Times in one hand, and a copy of "How to Win Friends and Influence People" in the other, Al Kresta is ready for an extended commercial for his boss' new venture!

    Al, I love your show, but that interview with Tom Monaghan was such a waste of your audience's time - not quite a conversation of consequence.
