Morning Glory talks with Taylor James of new SAMSON movie!…

Samson-movie

A fun Monday Morning Glory with Monsignor Charles Pope as we got a sneak peek of a new movie hitting screens on February 16th! Known for his work in the movie, Justice League, Taylor James joined Morning Glory to talk his role as SAMSON.

Directed by Bruce Macdonald, the movie is based on the powerful, biblical epic of a champion chosen by God to deliver Israel. His supernatural strength and impulsive decisions quickly pit him against the oppressive Philistine empire. After being betrayed by a wicked prince and a beautiful temptress, Samson is captured and blinded by his enemies. Samson calls upon his God once more for supernatural strength and turns imprisonment and blindness into final victory.

The film also stars Jackson Rathbone, Billy Zane, Caitlin Leahy, Rutger Hauer, and Lindsay Wagner.

Check out the trailer here

Other guests included Dr. Matthew Bunson on the situation in China and the Vatican making some moves diplomatically for the relationship with the state-run Catholic church–that many are concerned about given the many human rights abuses in the Asian country. Read more about it at http://www.ncregister.com.

We also take a look at the GOP memo with Brendan Kirby of Lifezette. Democrats say the release is an attempt to undermine the special counsel’s investigation into Russian election meddling. Find Brendan at http://www.Lifezette.

The Obama Justice Department went to a secret intelligence court to apply for the warrant in October 2016. According to the Republican memo, an essential part of the application was the now infamous dossier on Russian meddling and Team Trump written by former British spy Christopher Steele. The memo claims the judge who approved the warrant was never told the dossier was paid by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign.

Happy MLK Jr. Day from Morning Glory!

Morning Glory celebrates the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King this Monday with our beloved Monsignor Charles Pope! On abortion, Dr. King once said: “Cowardice asks the question, ‘is it safe?’; expediency asks the question, ‘is it politic?’; vanity asks the question, ‘is it popular?’; but conscience asks the question, ‘is it right?’; and there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but because conscience tells one it is right. ” We discuss his powerful words and what we can learn today within our own fight for the sanctity of ALL life.

Guests include pro-life pioneer Joe Scheidler of ProLife Action League. Scheidler is National Director of the Pro-Life Action League, a national pro-life educational and activist organization headquartered in Chicago. Joe left a career in public relations to become a full-time pro-life activist shortly after the U. S. Supreme Court issued its Roe v. Wade opinion in 1973. When his brand of on-the-streets direct action met with resistance from established pro-life organizations, he and his wife, Ann decided to found the Pro-Life Action League in 1980. It has been said that Joseph Scheidler defined pro-life direct action.

We also talk with Cassidy Roderick of Franciscan University where she heads the Students For Life group–they are heading to DC this week for the March For Life with hundreds of students participating.

Tomorrow is National Religious Freedom Day–Lea Carawan of the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation joins to talk about how to best keep faith in America–and a big event taking place tomorrow that all can take part in online. Visit KeepFaithinAmerica.com for more information!

Tune in every weekday at 7am ET for Morning Glory–to jumpstart your day the Catholic way!
