Happy to have a fun Morning Glory planned for tomorrow with Father Thomas Petri joining us in-studio as our Godly Counsel, aka spiritual sidekick! We’ll be discussing the big news that came from the FBI-released telephone transcripts between the Orlando shooter and the hostage negotiators – after the White House Administration made the all to redact any mention of ISIS or radical Jihad in the content. The move has Speaker of the House Paul Ryan very concerned, calling the decision ‘preposterous’. Then, Loretta Lynch takes heed and released the full text in its entirety..
We’ll also discuss a big pro-life super PAC endorsing Donald Trump for president. Trump has called for all Supreme Court nominees to be pro-life, and will be meeting with faith leaders tomorrow to discuss pertinent issues.
We’ll be joined by John Emmett Clarke of Cluny Media to discuss some of the publications the media house is working on. More information regarding his work can be found at http://www.ClunyMedia.com!
We’ll talk with Brendan Kirby of Lifezette about the 2016 presidential race and Trump’s stance on banning Muslims; how some GOP’ers don’t think the idea is that far-fetched, and perhaps it’s been done in the past?.. We’ll also discuss Trump’s move to fire his campaign manager. Brendan’s recent pieces can be found at http://www.Lifezette.com!
Morning Glory discusses his new book: Fire From Above, out now on Sophia Institute Press.
In Fire From Above, Dr. Anthony Lilles, Academic Dean at St. John’s Seminary in California, shows you how to put your whole life in conversation with the Risen Lord within the Catholic tradition of spirituality. The wisdom of great saints and mystics will help you discover how to surrender your pride and appeal to God with humble trust, and how prayer addresses your deepest human needs.
Dr. Lilles then shows you how the mystery of prayer unfolds, and how God provides heroic levels of courage and deep internal resolve through humble and persevering devotion. You’ll examine how spiritual battles and dryness in prayer are essential to reaching communion with God, including the dark night of the soul. In these remarkable pages, you’ll also explore:
Why finding time to pray is always possible and necessary even when life is busy
How the proper use of sacramentals can render the heart more vulnerable to God’s saving power while protecting it from evil.
Practical ways to confront self-deception and other challenges to contemplative prayer.
How forgiveness and bearing hardships are means for spiritual maturity
The indispensible role of Our Lady in the life of faith
Read these pages, and you’ll soon embark on the epic adventure which is the life of prayer, and you’ll find encouragement to desire neither the goods nor the experiences of this world, but instead to pursue alone the Lord and His divine plan for your life.
