Christ is the Answer – April 22, 2015

“Kresta in the Afternoon” – April 21, 2015 – Hour 1

+ Segment #1 of 3

Direct to My Desk: What does a parish do when a greatly beloved pastor over-reaches in trying to protect the innocent and finds himself at odds with his bishop? The case of Christ the King, Fr. Ed Fride and the Bishops of Michigan 


  • Description: Christ the King, an Ann Arbor parish, is getting international attention for a debate over firearms. The church’s pastor, Fr. Ed Fride, recently announced that Concealed Pistol License classes would take place on church property. He encouraged parishioners to participate, citing a host of reasons. Fr. Fride also sent parishioners a lengthy and controversial letter explaining his concerns. Since the announcement, Lansing Bishop Earl Boyea has restated the diocese’s longstanding policy against carrying firearms on church property and the classes have been relocated. But not before the secular press seized on the story and many parishioners responded with moral indignation and threats of leaving. Oh, it’s also Al’s and Nick’s home parish. Benedict XVI called for the laity to accept co-responsibility for the Church. What does that mean in this case? What should the parish do when their beloved pastor makes a well-intentioned error and finds himself at odds with his bishop? We’ll discuss it. Call us at 877-573-7825.

Teresa's Two Cents

  • Description: Pope Francis on pilgrimage: "The practice of pilgrimage has a special place in the Holy Year, because it represents the journey each of us makes in this life. Life itself is a pilgrimage, and the human being is a viator, a pilgrim travelling along the road, making his way to the desired destination. Similarly, to reach the Holy Door in Rome or in any other place in the world, everyone, each according to his or her ability, will have to make a pilgrimage. This will be a sign that mercy is also a goal to reach and requires dedication and sacrifice. May pilgrimage be an impetus to conversion: by crossing the threshold of the Holy Door, we will find the strength to embrace God’s mercy and dedicate ourselves to being merciful with others as the Father has been with us."

        • The Catholic Girl's Survival Guide for the Single Years - Three parts sexual license, two parts corporate ladder, with a dash of Monolo Blahnik. If a woman’s single years were a cocktail, that would be the culture’s preferred recipe. Alternatively, there’s two parts husband-hunting novena, one part weeping and gnashing of teeth, with a generous splash of "Offer It Up"—a concoction that makes for a more sanctifying albeit equally unsatisfying brew. Then, there’s this book. Equal parts fun and faithful, The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide is chock full of practical insights on the nitty-gritty “how to” of the single years, helping women address some of the most pressing questions on their plate, including: Why am I still single? Is there any such thing as a “Single Vocation”? What is authentic femininity and what’s so great about it in the first place? How do I date as an adult without losing my sanity or my soul? Why shouldn’t I throw in the towel on chastity? How do I make decisions about school, work, and finances when there's no husband or babies on the immediate horizon? How do I deal with all my married friends and their children? And what does it take to battle the Single Girl Blues? As hopeful as it is honest, The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide for the Single Years is the perfect companion for women whose journey to “I do” is turning out to be a longer one than they (or their mothers) would have liked.
