Direct to My Desk

  • Description: Today on Kresta in the Afternoon we are going Direct to My Desk. You make the choice of topics. Here are a few suggestions, but don’t forget to bring your own questions, concerns, commendations, criticisms and stories: Why do American Catholics seem afraid to face conflict over hard truths like Hell, contraception, and Christ as the one mediator between God and man? Do we obey God to please Him or make ourselves happy? Is it God’s will that we be happy? If we are not happy, are we out of God’s will? Is there a war on American Christianity? What five regrets does one hospice nurse hear from dying patients?

Why the New Evangelization Needs a Focus on Fathers

  • Description: So many problems in our society can be traced back to the lack of a solid father figure. Countless studies have shown that kids who grow up without a positive relationship with their dads are much more likely to drop out of school, be arrested, use drugs and experience other problems. Despite their importance, fathers are regularly mocked in our popular culture and advertisements. Steve Wood of Family Life Center International joins us to talk about the critical role of fathers in the New Evangelization.
