Kick off your Thursday with us tuned to EWTN radio as we discuss the biggest news stories of the day including director Martin Scorcese meeting with Pope Francis in the Vatican after a showing of his film, Silence. We’ll also chat about Nancy Pelosi retaining control of the House despite dissension among the Democratic ranks. Father Bjorn Lundberg is back with us with tales from his recent trips to Tennessee and a Notre Dame football game!
Guests include John Kraemer who perseveres through his cerebral palsy and other ailments to create a beautiful 15,000 lego Church project! He travels to parishes across the nation inspiring kids of all ages with his design!
We’ll also talk with Kathryn Blackhurst of Lifezette about two University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire students filed a lawsuit in November alleging the university violated their religious freedom by refusing to accept their hours spent teaching classes at a Catholic church for a service-learning program.
The two students, Alexandra Liebl and Madelyn Rysavy, claim the university violated their constitutional rights by deeming their hours spent improving children’s reading skills and teaching them about Catholicism, Biblical history, and Latin did not meet the program’s 30-hour requirement. Although the university rejected these two students’ community service projects, it had no qualms about accepting other students’ participation in lectures about Planned Parenthood’s contributions to society or the White House Student Film Festival’s social justice initiatives.
Lastly, we’ll talk with Catherine Glenn Foster about some recent shocking stories about life being devalued on the gravest levels with the acceptance and legalization of Assisted Suicide. She serves as Executive Director of the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition USA and with a strong legal background, is a tremendous expert on what’s happening within our own country and across the globe with assisted suicide becoming a norm.
