4:00 – How to Share Your Faith with Anyone: A Practical Manual of Catholic Evangelization
Recent popes have challenged all Catholics to participate in the New Evangelization. But most Catholics feel ill-equipped to take up the challenge. Terry Barber, founder of St. Joseph Communications, has written a practical guide that takes much of the pain and uncertainty out of sharing one's faith. Based on Barber's decades of personal experience as an effective evangelist and masterful communicator, and drawing on the perceptions, examples, and lessons of other great evangelists and apologists, How to Share Your Faith with Anyone informs, entertains, and inspires would-be, as well as, seasoned evangelists and teachers. Terry is here to discuss it.
5:00 – Pope Francis: Why He Leads the Way He Leads
From choosing to live in a simple apartment instead of the papal palace to washing the feet of men and women in a youth detention center, Pope Francis’s actions contradict behaviors expected of a modern leader. Chris Lowney, a former Jesuit seminarian turned Managing Director for JP Morgan & Co., is here to show how the pope’s words and deeds reveal spiritual principles that have prepared him to lead the Church and influence our world—a rapidly-changing world that requires leaders who value the human need for love, inspiration, and meaning. Drawing on interviews with people who knew him as Father Jorge Bergoglio, SJ, Lowney challenges assumptions about what it takes to be a great leader. In so doing, he reveals the “other-centered” leadership style of a man whose passion is to be with people rather than set apart.

4:00 – 6:00 – JFK Special Broadcast
Many items make up the searing images from the assassination of President John F. Kennedy — from the ill-fated presidential limousine to the gravesite eternal flame, to the historic Air Force One plane where Lyndon B. Johnson took the oath of office. Friday marks the 50thAnniversary of JFK’s assassination and we devote the day today to the 35thPresident and our nation’s first Catholic President. It was a year before his election that he gave his now-famous speech to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association. In front of the Protestant ministers in attendance at the Rice Hotel in Texas, the presidential candidate gave his justifications on the “religious issue”—that is, how a Catholic president would navigate church-state relations while in office. Anti-Catholic sentiments ran high, as did fears the pope would influence his decisions. We talk about that speech, it’s impact, the JFK presidency, his moral issues, and much more.
