Six Rules for Dealing with Non-Catholic Family and Friends

  • Description: Steve Ray was originally with us August 13th to discuss his Six Rules for Dealing with Non-Catholic Family and Friends. In this new pre-recorded interview, Teresa and Steve revisit the list and flesh it out a bit more. The Six Rules: 1) Never argue with them, it will only push them further away. 2) Love them more than ever before, especially between spouses. 3) Pray seriously and constantly and make sacrifices. 4) Show the Joy of the Lord in your life so they see the result of the fullness of the Faith. 5) Study apologetics and do biblical homework so you are ready when they finally ask questions. 6) Ask God to bring someone else into their lives to influence them since they won’t listen to you.

The Matthew Sheperd Case - Not the Story You Think You Know

  • Description: What role did crystal meth and other previously underreported factors play in the brutal murder of gay college student Matthew Shepard? The Book of Matt is a page-turning cautionary tale that humanizes and de-mythologizes Matthew while following the evidence where it leads, without regard to the politics that have long attended this American tragedy. Late on the night of October 6, 1998, twenty-one-year-old Matthew Shepard left a bar in Laramie, Wyoming with two alleged “strangers,” Aaron McKin­ney and Russell Henderson. Eighteen hours later, Matthew was found tied to a log fence on the outskirts of town, unconscious and barely alive. He had been pistol-whipped so severely that the mountain biker who discovered his battered frame mistook him for a Halloween scarecrow. Overnight, a politically expedient myth took the place of important facts. By the time Matthew died a few days later, his name was synonymous with anti-gay hate. Stephen Jimenez went to Laramie to research the story of Matthew Shepard’s murder in 2000, after the two men convicted of killing him had gone to prison, and after the national media had moved on. His aim was to write a screenplay on what he, and the rest of the nation, believed to be an open-and-shut case of bigoted violence. As a gay man, he felt an added moral imperative to tell Matthew’s story. But what Jimenez eventually found in Wyoming was a tangled web of secrets. His exhaustive investigation also plunged him deep into the deadly underworld of drug trafficking. Over the course of a thirteen-year investigation, Jimenez traveled to twenty states and Washington DC, and interviewed more than a hundred named sources. The Book of Matt is sure to stir passions and inspire dialogue as it re-frames this misconstrued crime and its cast of characters, proving irrefutably that Matthew Shepard was not killed for being gay but for reasons far more complicated — and daunting.

Presidents’ Day Week: The Founders at Home: The Building of America

  • Description: Through the Founders’ own voices—and in the homes they designed and built to embody the ideal of domestic happiness they fought to achieve—we come to understand why the American Revolution, of all great revolutions, was the only enduring success. The Founders were vivid, energetic, and mostly Christian men, with sophisticated worldviews. We look at them, drawing liberally from their own eloquent writings on their actions and well-considered intentions. Myron Magnet knows these men’s lives intimately and joins us to discuss them.

Therese, Faustina and Bernadette: Three Saints Who Challenged My Faith, Gave Me Hope, and Taught Me How to Love

  • Description: Author, speaker, and retreat leader Elizabeth Ficocelli is here to introduces us to three remarkable women saints who became not only her role models, but also her life-changing friends. Therese, Faustina, and Bernadette taught Ficocelli about faith, hope, and love, and showed her what true Catholic womanhood looks like. Some of the best saint stories are not about wonder-workers, but rather the everyday saints--friends who understand the challenges of marriage and motherhood and the banalities of day-to-day life. Elizabeth discovered three such friends in Therese of Lisieux, Faustina of the Divine Mercy, and Bernadette of Lourdes. She joins us.
  • Segment Guests:
    • Elizabeth Ficocelli
