4:20 – Understanding Pope Francis
Following up on the Pope’s two most recent interviews in America Magazine and La Repubblica, we talk to Ed Echeverria, a professor of Theology at Sacred Heart Major Seminary about what he sees as 3 categories of Pope Francis’ comments: 1) obscure, 2) perplexing, and, yes, 3) troubling. We do this all through the light of Francis’ Encyclical, Lumen Fidei.

5:20 – Lift Jesus Higher: A Day of Evangelization
Lift Jesus Higher . . .Blessed John Paul II proclaimed, “Be open to Christ, welcome the Spirit, so that a New Pentecost can take place in every community! A new humanity, a joyful one, will arise from your midst; you will again experience the saving power of the Lord and ‘what was spoken to you by the Lord’ will be fulfilled.” Renewal Ministries’ “Lift Jesus Higher” is a response of the urgent call by Blessed John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis for a New Evangelization. It is a place to encounter the living Jesus Christ and an encouragement to open your hearts to the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, and the grace of a New Pentecost. Peter and Debbie Herbeck of Renewal Ministries are here to talk about evangelization in the New Evangelization.
