A Catholic Approach to Healthcare on Morning Glory!

Tune in bright and early tomorrow morning with the Morning Glory team including our Godly Counsel, Father Thomas Petri joining us from Roma!

Guests include Louis Brown of CMF Curo on a Catholic approach to healthcare, injecting love and mercy into the care for life at all stages. Mary Vigil will also be with us who is assuming a new role with Christ Medicus Foundation. With the Senate vote this week on the new bill, this is a very important issue that deserves much discussion!

With some big news from the Supreme Court today, we talk with Elizabeth Slattery of Heritage about a win for religious liberty!

Finally, we have Alan Holdren who typically joins from Rome. He’s in DC for a summer break and will be able to shed light on a sad disappearance of a Chinese Bishop. With many Catholics and Christians being persecuted for their faith, Alan will unpack the fate of the Bishop and what we might do to help. The Holy See today is asking for prayers for the safe return of Bishop Shao! Read more about it at ewtnnews.com!

Our conversation is always a two way street. Find us on Facebook, tweet to the show directly by using @EWTN, or comment here! We love to hear questions and ideas from our listeners!

We hope you’ll wake up with us!

God bless!

NCSE says Google funds Backpage.com! Discussing with Lisa Thompson 7am ET on @EWTN radio!

Big Morning Glory line-up for tomorrow! With President Trump in Israel visiting the Holy Sepulchre and the Western Wall, we have much to discuss with regard to improving conversations on Judeo-Christian dialogue. Thus far, Middle East leaders have been impressed by Trump’s embrace and hopeful for a more peaceful future.

We’ll also be discussing a new report from the National Center on Sexual Exploitation that exposes a tie between Google and Backpage.com, a website most known for soliciting prostitution and human trafficking. Lisa Thompson will join us to discuss in greater detail – even the lobbyists hired to work on Capitol Hill in tearing down the Consumer Decency Act–the last leg standing that somewhat polices internet pornography that is running rampant. This story is not being covered by mainstream media–and we hope Google will change it’s ways!

Other guests include Drew Gonshorowski of Heritage on the CBO score of the American Healthcare Act – set to be released on Wednesday. As lawmakers continue to work to dismantle Obamacare, President Trump has reportedly told advisers he wants to stop Obamacare payments to insurers. Politico reports that Trump has suggested cutting off the payments as a way to quickly bring Democrats to the bargaining table for health reform. Heritage experts say that House Republicans took a major step in the process of repealing and replacing Obamacare. It’s now up to the Senate to act and go even further in eliminating the mandates and regulations from the Affordable Care Act that have so disrupted the health insurance markets.

Father Maurice Emelu will also be with us to discuss his new book, Our Journey to God: An African Priest Explores the Power of Faith from Abraham to You. There is one commonality among every saint: they all have deep faith in God that was lived out in their daily lives. Fr. Maurice Emelu explains here how the faith of Abraham, Moses, Mary, and other biblical figures evolved, and how their journey serves as a roadmap for how our faith-life can be built, nourished, and grown.

Drawing on his West African roots as well as his many years of pastoral ministry, Fr. Emelu combines the story-telling culture of Africa with a Western worldview to offer a unique perspective on the nature of faith and what it means to grow closer to the Lord.

We’ll have the ‘deep’ fried Dominican with us tomorrow! Father Aquinas Guilbeau brings his ragin’ Cajun Catholic faith and his great work with Aleteia – so you won’t want to miss out!

‘See’ you bright and early!

Fun Thursday Morning Glory with Father Bjorn!

Hope you had a chance to listen to the show this morning! Thursdays are always fun with our beloved high school chaplain of Saint John Paul the Great with us, Father Bjorn Lundberg!

Other guests today included Jeanne Mancini of March for Life on the hypocrisy of Planned Parenthood’s recent media blitz. Ever since the abortion giant lost its federal funding for this year, Cecile Richards has been out in full effect touting some of their biggest lies. Jeanne set the record straight: abortion IS harmful!!!

It is graduation time and we also checked in with our good friend John Zimmerman of FOCUS to discuss ways grads can build their faith and Catholic community after college. John had some great ideas on how to cultivate relationships with those in the pews at Mass.

If you missed the show LIVE, check out the audio archives here! Each show is uploaded as a podcast just minutes after airing.

Catch us LIVE tomorrow at 7am ET when we have our deep-fried Dominican Father Aquinas Guilbeau with us along with Lisa Duffy as we reflect on Amoris Laetitia one year later!

 

See you bright and early!

Best,

Alyssa
