From Sedevacantist to Full Communion: The Story of a Religious Order

  • Description: After the death of Blessed John Paul II and the election of Pope (Emeritus) Benedict XVI, a community of Sedevacantist religious women began a spiritual journey that would eventually lead to their petitioning the bishop of Spokane, WA for full communion with the Catholic Church. This extraordinarily bold step, of course, required prayerful discernment, ongoing study and much personal sacrifice. In June of 2006, their miracle of faith bore fruit when Sr. Mary Eucharista, SMMC, and numerous members of her community received a letter from Bishop Skylstad that formally approved the Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Church as a Public Association of the Faithful within the Diocese of Spokane, WA. We talk to Sr. Mary Eucharista about the journey.

A Call for the “Annihilation of the Islamic State in Iraq”

  • Description: One of the most influential Christian thinkers in the US, Dr. Robert George, has led a bi-partisan, interfaith effort to call for the annihilation of the Islamic State in Iraq over their calculated plans to liquidate religious minorities in the Middle East. The letter read in part, “The so-called Islamic State of Iraq (ISIS/ISIL) is conducting a campaign of genocide against Christians, Yazidis, and others in Iraq. In its fanatical effort to establish a caliphate, ISIS/ISIL has engaged in crimes against humanity by deliberately causing mass starvation and dehydration, and by committing unconscionable acts of barbarism against noncombatants, including defenseless women, children, and elderly persons. It is imperative that the United States and the international community act immediately and decisively to stop the ISIS/ISIL genocide and prevent the further victimization of religious minorities.” Dr. George joins us.
