4:00 – The New Evangelization: What It Is and How It Affects the Life of Every Catholic – Continued Conversation From Last Week
“No believer in Christ, no institution of the Church can avoid this supreme duty: to proclaim Christ to all peoples.”– Blessed John Paul II. With the encouragement of Blessed John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, discover a renewed urgency and growing enthusiasm for sharing the Gospel with those in your life, both non-believers and those who are no longer practicing their faith. In The Urgency of the New Evangelization: Answering the Call, Ralph Martin explains: It’s not just a churchy buzzword, It’s not just for priests and missionaries to carry out, YOU and every individual Catholic play a role, it is literally a matter of life or death for everyone in your life, And… it’s not as hard as you think. Ralph joins us to continue a conversation we started last week.
5:00 – Graphic Images: An Apologia – Their History and Role in the Pro-Life Movement
The Nazi Holocaust ended nearly seventy years ago. Yet, despite the overwhelming evidence of the systematic extermination of European Jews, there are those who deny that these atrocities actually occurred. Much, if not all, of such denial is motivated by a politically or philosophically based anti-Semitism. One of the most persuasive rebuttals to Holocaust denial is the photographic record of its victims. This record, both still photos and film, was used to great effect by the prosecutors during the Nuremberg trials. They are often graphic and hard to look at, but they are real. They show something that is real. Why not the same for the reality of abortion? Dr. Monica Miller offers an apologia for graphic images of abortion.
