Make sure to start your day off right with the Morning Glory crew! This week, we’ve talked with Dr. Peter Kleponis about the problem of pornography and the Catholic approach to helping those struggling with this addiction. We also learned all about a great conference taking place this weekend for those recovering from divorce and seeking annulment. And with Marcellus Williams scheduled to be executed in Missouri in a couple of weeks, Alexandra Carroll of the Catholics Mobilizing Network joined to share what they’re doing to end the death penalty.
This morning, we had the awesome opportunity of finally have Father Ed Bresnahan join us as our spiritual sidekick or Godly Counsel. Serving as high school chaplain to Bishop Ireton High School, he is a celebrity around the DC area, working with so many students and alumni–and parents of these incredible students!
Guests today included Maddy West of FOCUS, joining as Team Director to Louisiana State University this next academic year. She discussed the challenges of sharing the Catholic faith on a secular campus where many students aren’t Catholic–or consider themselves to be ‘spiritual’ and never religious. We also had the one and only Serrin Foster of Feminists for Life talking about the incredible opportunity she had to speak to interns on Capitol Hill–on both sides of the aisle–and the issues surrounding the pro-life movement.
The 135th Annual Knights of Columbus Convention is taking place in St. Louis, Missouri this week–Supreme Knight Carl Anderson just announced 2 million dollars being raised for Iraqi-Christians suffering under the hands of ISIS in the Nineveh Plain. Matt Hadro of our own Catholic News Agency joined us to give us a look at this latest news and more from the ground there in St. Louis!
Tomorrow, on a fabulous Friday edition of Morning Glory, we’ll have our ‘deep-fried’ Dominican Father Aquinas Guilbeau back with us! He’s been writing several articles for Aleteia.org including one on intercessory prayer! We’ll also be joined by Claire Chretien of LifeSiteNews on a baby that needs experimental treatment in Liverpool and his parents’ struggle–similar to the poor baby Charlie Gard! We’ll also get a snapshot of a Thomistic Institute conference taking place right now in Providence for parish priests discussing the best pastoral care for those nearing the end of their life.
