Today on "Kresta in the Afternoon" - May 22, 2012

Talking about the "things that matter most" on May 22

Guest Host: Paul Kengor

4:00 – A Veteran POW’s Story of Surviving Nuremberg
Francis Kravetz was born October 25, 1923, in East Pittsburgh, near the Westinghouse plant that provided income and aspiration for an entire community. Every morning he shoveled soot that drifted onto the porch from the steel mill. But then war came. Frank enlisted in the Army Air Corps. If he was going to help Uncle Sam beat the Nazis, he would do it from an airplane—and he did it very well, as a tail-gunner. Frank is here to tell us how he ended up as a captive of the “hell-hole” that was Nuremberg as a wounded POW scratching for survival.

4:40 – Lawsuits Filed Against HHS Mandates
Yesterday morning 43 separate plaintiffs filed a total of 12 lawsuits today in U.S. District courts around the country. Those plaintiffs are all Catholic organizations and include Catholic dioceses, schools, universities, and charitable organizations. Numbered among the plaintiffs are the Our Sunday Visitor, Catholic University of America, the University of Notre Dame, Franciscan University, the Archdioceses of New York, Washington, D.C., and St. Louis, as well as the Dioceses of Dallas, Ft. Worth, Rockville Centre, Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne-South Bend, the Michigan Catholic Conference, which represents all seven dioceses in the state, and many many others. We talk with Paul Long of the MI Catholic Conference.

5:00 – The HHS mandate, Sec. Sebelius at Georgetown, Memorial Day, Rick Santorum's future, and Occupy Wall Street.

  1. Dear Paul Kengor;

    In reply to your question on what book for a young man who will be attending a non-Catholic College this fall and especially for your youngest cousin. First, I did not have an opportunity to hear your entire broadcast, so forgive if I interject redundant content. However, it appears most guests were directed at protecting your cousin's faith with well meaning and excellent Catholic books for spiritual growth.

    As Pentecost is now approaching it seems to me that arming your cousin with information that allows him to profess Catholic Teaching faithfully is perhaps a better direction to pursue? What better choice than to be sure your cousin has at least a personal copy of The Catechism? Or, perhaps you may want to provide him with several copies so that he may pursue questions and defend the faith with the best "academic" material from the Magisterium and allow his new friends to uncover the Truth from a reliable source on Catholic Teaching.
