Kick off your Wednesday with EWTN radio with Dr. Grazie Christie!…

Join us tomorrow morning at 7am ET as we discuss the big night ahead at the Democratic National Convention with the president of Planned Parenthood slated to speak. On the day of Cecile Richards’ speech, we also learn that David Daleiden has been CLEARED of all charges given his Pulitzer-prize winning investigative journalism that exposed the abortion giant as a money-making business that has no care for the babies being killed every day.

Guests include Dr. Grazie Christie of The Catholic Association discussing the Democrats extreme pro-abortion platform and what future the Conscience Protection Act within our nation where religious freedom is under attack. Find out more about TCA at http://www.thecatholicassociation.org.

We’ll also discuss a new Marist poll out showing an interesting perspective most Americans have when it comes to abortion. The poll shows that the majority of citizens within our country want some restrictions on abortion, despite the position of many Democrats that think they’re shouldn’t be any, all in the name of ‘women’s health.’ Andrew Walther of Knights of Columbus has worked extensively within this new research and we’ll get the latest from him. Learn more about the Marist poll by visiting KofC.org.

The DNC is in full swing! We’ll go LIVE to the convention floor with Catherine Szeltner of EWTN’s News Nightly to hear about a familiar voice that sang, and the speeches slated for this evening, including former president, Bill Clinton, speaking on the night his wife is expected to accept the nomination.

Join us for Morning Glory 7am ET with Tom McClusky on EWTN Radio!

Join us tomorrow morning on the EWTN airwaves as we discuss the Republican National Convention and delve into what might be the Catholic response to such tragic stories unfolding in our world today including the terrible shooting in Baton Rouge that left 3 officers dead, another one still fighting for his life currently in critical condition. We’ll also try to make sense of the coup in Turkey that took place over the weekend and the government’s response to fire at least 9,000 employees…

We’re happy to have Amy McInerny of Human Life Action back with us! She’s been part of the pro-life movement since Roe v. Wade and has a wealth of wisdom in the evolution of the pro-life movement.

Discussing La. tragedy tomorrow morning on Morning Glory with the Diocese of Baton Rouge…

Join us Monday for Morning Glory tomorrow at 7am ET as we traverse the landscape of news that struck the world this past weekend. Still grieving the loss of life in Nice, we saw a coup in Turkey that left at least 200 dead and now 6,000 arrested. We also lost 3 officers with more still fighting for their lives after another ambush, this time in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Please join us to pray and reflect on what we might do as Catholics during these difficult times.

Guests include Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List, discussing the Republican National Convention kicking off this week. Security is tight as 50,000 people descend upon the city for this historic time, fleshing out the GOP platform. Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump has chosen a pro-life VP: Indiana Governor Mike Pence! Please learn more about Marjorie and the SBA-List by visiting http://www.SBA-list.org.

We’ll also go on a virtual pilgrimage to Vienna with FOCUS Missions Director, Jeff Runyan. He is currently taking 150 college youth across the historic city. Learn more about Jeff and FOCUS Missions by visiting http://www.FOCUSMissions.org.

After 5400 killed just last month by ISIS, we look at the ongoing Christian genocide unfolding in the Middle East with the President of Solidarity with the Persecuted Church, Steve Wagner. We’ll look at the ongoing persecution of those with their religious freedom under threat–under the threat of death in many cases, and what we can do to help those suffering this grave affliction.

Wake up with us and pray with us!
