Remembering our dear Mother Angelica on Friday’s Morning Glory with Brandon McGinley!

Join us we kick off the weekend on EWTN radio discussing the breaking news of the day including the potential confirmation of HHS Secretary nominee, Tom Price–set for 2am ET in the wee early hours of the morn! We’ll also discuss the supposed ethical violations of Kellyanne Conway basically giving Ivanka Trump’s fashion line a small commercial on White House grounds–and we will talk about why Planned Parenthood has yet to release their annual report–and what perhaps might they be hiding!

Guests include Elizabeth Ficocelli who occasionally fills in for our host, Brian Patrick–as she reflects on the Feast of our Lady of Lourdes–which we celebrate this weekend! Her new book: Font of Faith, Hope, and Charity explores a fascinating look at Lourdes, one of the world’s most popular Marian places of pilgrimage. The book includes the history of the apparitions to Bernadette Soubirous, the response of the Church, the advent of cures and pilgrimage, and Lourdes today as a powerful center for physical, spiritual, and emotional healing. Featuring interviews with the bishop, medical director, and other key personnel of the sanctuary. Foreword by Fr. Benedict Groeschel, nationally acclaimed scholar, theologian, author, speaker and host of “Sunday Night Live with Father Benedict Groeschel” on EWTN. Learn more about Elizabeth by visiting http://www.ElizabethFicocelli.com.

We’ll also celebrate a big win for First Liberty Institute! They reached a settlement agreement between the State of Georgia and First Liberty’s client, Dr. Eric Walsh. The State of Georgia agreed to pay $225,000 to settle Dr. Walsh’s religious discrimination lawsuit.  “I am grateful this trial has finally ended,” Dr. Eric Walsh says. “It’s been a long, difficult journey, but it’s worth it to have my name cleared and to ensure that all Georgia government employees know they have religious liberty.”

Jeremy Dys, Senior Counsel for First Liberty Institute and counsel for Dr. Walsh, says:

“This is a clear and resounding victory for religious freedom,”  “We always knew the law was on our side, so we are pleased the State of Georgia agreed to settle this case and clear Dr. Walsh’s good name.”  Dys will join us to explore what this case might mean for other religious freedom violations. Dr. Walsh, a lay minister and former Georgia government employee, filed a lawsuit against the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) after evidenced surfaced that he had been fired because of his religious beliefs.

And we’ll also learn more about our beloved Foundress Mother Angelica with Brandon McGinley of EWTN Publishing. A new collection of her reflections on Christ and His Mother is now available through EWTN Religious Catalogue – and Brandon helped compile this new addition of Mother’s wise words. Tune in to hear more about “Mother Angelica on Christ and Our Lady” – a book that explores her prayerful approach to spiritual life!

We look forward to hearing from you! Feel free to leave a comment or question here and we’ll definitely share on-air and get back to you promptly!

Sue Ellen Browder joins Morning Glory 7am ET on @EWTN Radio!

Don’t miss a fun and thought-provoking Morning Glory tomorrow at 7am ET on EWTN radio! We’ll digest a big day in DC on Friday with the Inauguration of Donald J. Trump and a wonderful turnout out in San Francisco on Sunday for the West Coast Walk for Life!

We’ll be joined by Amber Athey of Campus Reform who spent time at the Womens’ March in DC.  As an investigative reporter, she spoke with the protesters there and learned that the only womens’ ‘right’ the marchers seemed concerned with is abortion… No talk of equal pay or education.. We’ll get the full story from her about this group’s not-so-hidden agenda–considering that liberal billionaire George Soros had many ties into the groups that put on the march in protest to the inauguration of our 45th president and his pro-life stance.

We’ll also talk with our own Dr. Matthew Bunson and get his perspective of the Inauguration. Many media outlets are saying it was the most prayerful with at least 7 religious leaders in attendance. Feel free to check out Bunson’s writing at http://www.ncregister.com.

And finally, we’re blessed to have Sue Ellen Browder joining us who has an amazing story to tell about her time writing for Cosmo during the sexual revolution–and how the Feminist movement came to embrace abortion as one of their tenets. Her book, Subverted, tells the entire story, out now on Ignatius Press!

See you bright and early!

Don’t miss Morning Glory tomorrow with Karlo Broussard joining on @EWTN radio!

We have a fun show planned for you tomorrow morning at 7am ET on EWTN radio! Father Thomas Petri will be back with us taking us out of this full week of a New Year that has MUCH in store! With just about a week until the 2017 Presidential Inauguration of Donald J. Trump, the Senate has been a revolving door with his many Cabinet nominees being grilled on topics pertinent to their position–and some not so pertinent. We’ll discuss General Mad Dog Mattis, Mike Pompeo, and Ben Carson taking the hot seat speaking from his heart about his own upbringing in poverty as he’s being considered to run the Department of Housing and Urban Development. We’ll also talk about a move by members of Congress to block the terrible Assisted Suicide bill that the mayor of DC recently passed.

Guests include Deputy Counsel for First Liberty on a religious liberty case that leaves many Catholic schools at risk, forced to impose transgender policies passed by the Obama Administration. Matt Kacsmaryk joins to tell us what is at stake and more about the 20+ schools that have signed on to the case.

With the anniversary of the Miracle of Fatima coming up in May, we talk with Karlo Broussard about his new book 20 Answers: Miracles! A native of Louisiana, he’s a well known author, speaker, and Apologist working with our friends at Catholic Answers.

The state of Kentucky passed monumental pro-life legislation this week. Governor Matt Bevin signed two bills into law.The late-term abortion law bans the procedures after 20 weeks of pregnancy, except in cases in which the mother’s life is in danger. Physicians who violate the measure could have their medical licenses revoked and could be sentenced to up to 5 years in prison. Under the ultrasound law, physicians are required to display the images so women can see, though they have the option to avert their eyes if they don’t want to see them. Physicians face a $100,000 fine for a first offense and a $250,000 fine for subsequent offenses. We’ll get the latest on the momentum of the pro-life movement in this state with Jason Hall of the Kentucky Catholic Conference!

Our conversation is a two-way street! We want to hear from you! Your ideas and opinions are always encouraged and shared on-air with our listeners. Find us on Facebook, tweet to the show via Twitter using @EWTN, email the show directly MorningGlory@EWTN.com, and you can even leave a comment, question, suggestion here!
