Pope Francis had many challenges to the 3 million attendees of World Youth Day and to all reading his messages around the world. Joseph Pearceis here to talk about Pope Francis through the lens of his own life experience.
4:40 – Spousal Prayer: A Way to Marital Happiness
Deacon James Keating’s newest book, Spousal Prayer: A Way to Marital Happinessaffirms that the sharing of hearts is a necessary commitment in both marriage and prayer. If we can learn what the key elements to sharing the heart are and equally what the key elements to receiving the heart of another are, then we will know the greatest of intimacy in both prayer and marriage. In fact, we cannot even understand what marriage is unless we look at how Christ loved His Bride, the Church, till the end. Deacon Keating is here to discuss marriage as a deep partnership with Christ
5:00 – World Youth Day Recap – Through the Eyes of a Bishop
Bishop James Conleyaccompanied the youth of his Diocese for a week of inspiration, messages and challenges from Pope Francis during World Youth Day in Rio. He joins us today to share the experience and the words of Pope Francis that will stay with him.
5:20 – Examining the Pope’s Messages at World Youth Day
Despite a week of talks, homilies, and challenges to the youth of the world, the mainstream media has reduced World Youth Day to a response of the Holy Father to one question a reporter asked him. We discussed the incredible misreporting on the Pope’s discussion of homosexuality on yesterday’s show, so today we talk about the REAL messages Pope Francis wanted to leave us with. Matthew Bunson does just that.
