  1. I absolutely love Morning Glory!! The format is informative, inspirational, and entertaining. I have been a big fan of Brian Patrick since his time on the Sun Rise Morning Show. It is great to have him back on in the A.M. But I must say that I am quickly becoming a huge Gloria Purvis fan. She makes me laugh!! Besides that, I can really relate with her, and appreciation her perspective. After spending my hour commute with you all I feel full of the Holy Spirit and ready to start my day. Keep up the good work!!

  2. I heard the comment on your show that there are no good TV shows anymore. Perhaps, you have not seen Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart. It is a family oriented, Christian & heartwarming story of a young school teacher from a wealthy family who crosses the Canadian frontier to teach in a small mining community that experienced a devastating tragedy – a mine explosion that killed 1/2 of the fathers. I am able to watch it with small children, my spouse & grown children & not be embarrassed.

    One of its producers is Michael Landon, Jr….similar format to Little House on the Praire. Something else has happened. The executive producers, to include Brian Bird (writer for the recently released Captive movie),actors & cast interact wth the fans (we call ourselves Hearties). Something even more special? We pray for each other, comfort each other & share the joyful moments. May I suggest starting with Season 1.

    • Thanks for posting about this series. My kids, hubby and I enjoyed Little House in the Prairie. But by the time my girls were entering teenage years we had already watched all the episodes. And we didn’t know of any program alike. So for our movie evening we would watch some Father Knows Best and/or The Munsters. These are all classical and “innocent” family movies . Something nonexistent nowdays. But I think this series you mentioned may be our new evening sittings.

  3. Good Morning overall I like your radio show but I was disappointed to hear a bit of mockery in the voices on Trump this morning 1/12 (I myself am not sold on any of the Republican candidates) … Trump is against abortion which is the greatest issue and I believe the # one destruction of mankind. I don’t feel I hear that from you, this same tone of voices on the other Republican candidates, and I have heard this tone in your voice before on Trump. Brian, I recall watching an interview on your TV show on EWTN with a rep from the organization called “Catholics for Obama” . When I watched that interview I was very disappointed to see how this Rep from this organization took control of the interview. How can any Catholic be on an EWTN show defending Obama who does not defend the life of the unborn, and I felt you let his agenda shine brightly on this interview, which this was your show and you should have owned the interview, but you did not.

  4. You are Trump bashing so do not think you are not. I am a faithful Catholic and I support Trump. We have to defeat Hillary. Do you not understand this? Trump is not the devil and shame on you for bashing him.

  6. Ewtn seems to becoming more and more anti-Trump. He’s the only candidate who has said more than once that he’s not going to let people die in the street in reference to the health care issue. Isn’t that a position consistent with the year of Mercy? Your guest this morning did not make a convincing case against DT. Do we really think there has never been a US President who hasn’t used off color language while IN the White House?

  11. I’ve written before but I’ll say it again: I absolutely love your morning show. I wake up to it at 5 a.m. MST. I love the fast pace of news, prayer, and humor your show brings. Yesterday half-asleep I especially awakened to the astonishing sound of bird chirps. Keep it up guys & God bless.

  12. We had a listener call in this morning at Redeemer Radio to complain about a comment made at 8:42am this morning on the program. Gloria mention the word “suck” and the comment “even in her sucking” in her comments. Our listener was very offended at the word choice used by the commentator.

  14. In my opinion the USCCB has created this “Catholic’s for Choice” organization by refusing to publicly excommunicate public officials like Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, Tim Kaine, and Andrew Cuomo who openly lie about the teaching of the Church on life and marriage. St. Paul in Corinthians 5 makes it absolutely clear that it is required of the Church to identify and exclude those who publicly scandalize the Church. By continuing to communicate with the idolators, the abortion industry and homosexual marriage lobby, we do them no favors and bring confusion to the “little ones.” It is REQUIRED that the Bishops exclude the leaders of this Organization for their own sake as well as the sake of the Catholic community as a whole. Not to do so is a the same as an endorsement of their claims. You allow them to win when they have “barrels of ink” to make their claim with a complicit media while we peep in the dark. Excommunication is a message that will ring in every ear. The USCCB needs to forget the dollars and cents and focus on the souls of their flock. A smaller faithful Church is better than a larger scandalized one.

  15. Hey Coach,
    I have been participating in the Crossing the Goal for a couple of months but during our last meeting I brought up how upset I am over the NCAA ruling on North Carolina. I am wondering how do we energize men to not watch the games and let the NCAA and ACC know?

    Also I love the show it keeps me grounded every morning!

  17. I fell in love with this show pretty quickly and I was so thankful to find a Catholic morning radio program. I joined them on Twitter, and even helped promote the show among my family and friends. However, in short order, I started to hear Gloria Purvis’s anti police rhetoric and soon realized that with her, issues of race trump Christian Charity. She never misses an opportunity to denigrate a profession that I have dedicated over half my life to in service to my fellow citizens-both on the show and social media. It’s heart breaking, really. My family, friends and I are sick of it and will be listening no more. I will pray that she will be able to let go of her anger.

  18. love listening and praying with all of you…but there was a comment today that I had thoughts about…Mrs. Clinton said back at Mother Teresa’s caninization that she had asked her to build a house for children… I don’t believe that planned parenthood is what she meant…. maybe we can pray for Saint Mother Teresa to convert Clintons heart.

  20. I have just turned off your station since this is the second time I have heard the host put an opinion on the show that’s disturbing. She referenced her opinion last week on Trump with his statement saying black people. She said she didn’t like the his term black people. Now she stated how is the police officer going to explain how he shot the guy in the back ( NC ). Seems to me she needs to go join black lives matter! If she’s not there already.

  24. I listen to Morning Glory every am. It is so informative and starts my day of right! I love the morning prayers. I just have one suggestion and it is meant with all due respect and love for this show. Can the Gloria be prayed just a little slower, I can’t keep up and get winded saying it so fast and get mixed up because of the speed. That’s all. Thank you for bringing goodness to the airways!
