Morning Glory was blessed to have Father Thomas Petri back with us discussing the impact and the history of Humanae Vitae! A symposium is planned for the Spring put on by the Dominican House of Studies and CUA.. Find out more by visiting http://www.engage.Catholic.edu.
We talk how our Catholic tenets of faith can help a child in crisis–ways to recognize bullying with Bullying survivor and expert Jodee Blanco. Blanco is currently working with the National Catholic Education Association, writing many pieces on ways to identify and work with students that are subjected to bullies on campus. You can read her first installment, A Primer on Bullying Intervention: How to Save a Child in Crisis Using Core Catholic Values as the Catalys at http://www.ncea.org and by visiting http://www.JodeeBlanco.com.
We also speak with Father Bill Casey on how to make the most of this Lenten season. His new book, Making a Holy Lent, is out now through http://www.SophiaInstitute.com and http://www.EWTNRC.com.
In it, EWTN host Fr. Bill Casey turns our attention to Jesus in brief reflections on topics ranging from the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist to the role that the Blessed Virgin Mary plays in every healthy prayer life.
Drawing on years of experience as a retreat master and as a regular EWTN host, Father Casey leavens each of these holy topics with a refreshing dose of common sense. Not only is this book perfectly suited for your Lenten devotions; you will find yourself turning to it many times during the year to remind you of the ever-urgent need for repentance and rebirth.
Make sure to join us every weekday morning at 7am ET for all the news of the day under a Catholic lens–we hope to hear from you! Feel free to leave comments here!
