She serves as the Faithzette editor and recounted the story she wrote on Lifezette.com about Monica Arbery. Through a crippling disease at a young age, a young woman discovers God’s incredible plan for her life!

Father Thomas Petri of the Dominican House of Studies led a conversation with Dr. David Prentice on a new study out of London that could potentially lead to doctors playing God, creating designer babies with artificial cells. Learn more about the study by visiting the Charlotte Lozier Institue, which serves as the research arm of the Susan B. Anthony List.

On Wednesday’s, we love to go LIVE to the streets of Rome with Alan Holdren of Catholic News Agency. The Holy Father Pope Francis talked about the spiritual works of mercy during the General Audience. Read more of Alan’s work at http://www.CatholicNewsAgency.com

Morning Glory kicks off your Thursday tomorrow with Aurora Griffin!

Join us bright and early for Morning Glory! We’ll discuss the scary afternoon at a South Carolina elementary school with a shooter roaming the hallways, leaving two children wounded. We’ll also discuss Obama’s embarrassing day with the first ever Congressional override of his Saudi Arabia 9/11 lawsuit bill, and the Pope’s touching words to the late Shimon Peres who died yesterday after a life dedicated to peace-building!

We’ll discuss all things political with Brendan Kirby of Lifezette. Today, Fed Chair Janet Yellen testified on Capitol Hill, boasting about a strong vibrant economy, but was lost when asked about participation rates. Of course, employment numbers play a LARGE part in how the economy is doing–so this is somewhat alarming. Brendan Kirby will flesh out the issue at hand. Read his piece here

Being the Fall, kids and young adults are back to school, some heading off to college for the first time. Many schools are secular so carrying one’s faith might seem challenging given today’s social climate. Harvard is a liberal school ( and I don’t mean liberal arts!), but it IS possible to keep and even strengthen your faith while at university. Aurora Griffin, a Harvard grad joins to tell us how she did it! Her new book out now on Ignatius Press can be bought here.

Today is a very special day! It kicks of 40 Days for Life, a great movement taking place across the country for those that want to celebrate life and get rid of this culture of death that so many in popular culture are embracing! We’ll talk to the President of 40 Days for Life, Shawn Carney about the big bus tour kicking off and how you can get involved in your town or city! Great information and resources about the campaign can be found here online.

We’re so blessed to have you as part of our family! Thank you for being part of Morning Glory and we hope to hear from you! Leave comments here, like us on Facebook, tweet questions @EWTN, or email the show directly: MorningGlory@EWTN.com! I’ll be looking for your thoughts and questions!

Have a beautiful evening and we’ll see you bright and early–coffee and juice in hand!

God bless,

Morning Glory kicks off tomorrow morning with Bishop Paul Loverde!

Join us bright and early on the EWTN airwaves for a fun Morning Glory with our funny and wise Father Thomas Petri back with us! We’ll digest some of the news still coming from the debate along with the tragic fire in the Bronx that took the life of a father of 3, the fire chief! Please keep him and his family in your prayers!

We’re joined by His Excellency Bishop Loverde to discuss the big election coming up in November and how best can Catholics form their conscience. We noticed last night NO mention of the life issue about the first presidential debate–how can we as Catholics best prepare to vote for one of the two nominees–one will indeed become president next year! Learn more about what the Bishop thinks by joining us tomorrow morning – and check out more information at http://www.USCCB.org.

We’ll also talk about religious freedom with a case just filed today. Cambridge Christian School is under attack as the players and football team were not allowed to pray before a big championship game. We’ll talk to Senior Counsel of First Liberty, Jeremy Dys about the fate of religious freedom on campuses across the nation – and what precedents there are that might be helpful with this next battle. Learn more about the case by visiting http://www.firstliberty.org!

Last but not least, we have former NFL wide receiver Danny Abramowicz joining us to discuss his faith journey in his new book: Crossing the Goal! Danny played for the New Orleans Saints and the San Francisco 49ers. His faith was tested on the field and in his new book, he talks about how we worked to strengthen his relationship with God–and how his faith played a role in his coaching as well. Learn more about his book by visiting http://www.SophiaInstitute.com or about Danny at http://www.crossingthegoal.com!

We absolutely love to hear from you! Feel free to reach out anytime by commenting here, finding us on Facebook and Twitter @EWTN, emailing the show directly: MorningGlory@EWTN.com!

Fun Thursday Morning Glory with Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee!

We kick off your Thursday with all the news of the day including the recent shootings in Charlotte and Tulsa, and the latest on the terror attack in NYC.. We’ll also look at the Pope’s telegram regarding the two Mexican priests that were brutally murdered after being kidnapped over the weekend.

We talk with Lucy Beckett about her new book, The Time Before You Die. She’s a British woman and this is her first novel out now on Ignatius Press. The book examines the Reformation and some of the persecution felt by clergy and nuns.

We’ll also get the latest on the prosecution of Stem Express, the tissue procurement company tied to Planned Parenthood with the Chairwoman of the Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives, the Honorable Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn, representing the 7th district of Tennessee. She can also fill us in on what’s next for the University of New Mexico where students used fetal tissue during a summer class–very important work all a by-product of David Daleiden’s investigative journalism!

We’re blessed to have with us tomorrow in-studio, Sister Clare Hunter of the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist–she’ll be telling us all about her order, their charism, and the great work she does for the Diocese of Arlington!
