Last week we dove into the principles of Catholic Social Teaching. This week, we apply it to the practical questions and problems in the world today: poverty, inequality, unemployment, and all the many social ills that we face. Tune in to hear Fr. Joseph, Paul, and Matt discuss how the Gospel can inform how we change the world!
Our country and our world is plagued with ills - poverty, injustice, war. But our Catholic Faith can provide some insight on the best way to build a better society! Catholic Social Teaching, often called the "best kept secret" in the Catholic Faith, gives us guidelines on how to apply the Gospel to the real-world problems that communities face. How can it be applied in YOUR community? Tune in to hear Fr. Joseph, Paul, and Matt discuss the insights that Catholic Social Teaching have to offer our world today!
Turn the calendar over to a new page - it's now a new year! We look back to the blessings and challenges of 2021, and turn our attention to the future opportunities of 2022.

Everything we have is a gift from God, meant to be used to further His kingdom and serve our brothers & sisters. Yet too often young adults make excuses for not giving more ("I'm trying to save up! I have a future to think of!"). But God calls us to be generous with our time, talent, and treasure - and almsgiving is one of the pillars of what it means to be Christian. Tune in to hear how Fr. Joseph, Paul and Lauren engage in this spiritual practice - and how they can improve in generosity!
The end is near! What does the Church teach about the end of the world? Can we know when it is coming? What are the signs that will herald Christ's triumphant return? In times such as this when the world is in chaos, these questions are all the more pressing. Hear Fr. Joseph, Diane, Lauren, and Matt discuss the coming Apocalypse and the cry of every Christian heart, "Come, Lord Jesus!"
Throughout the world, believers have had to undergo suffering, rejection, and martyrdom to hold fast to their Catholic Faith. This is not only an ancient phenomenon - even today, there are many countries that outlaw or severely restrict Christianity. How can we help our brothers and sisters who are suffering for the Faith? Tune in to hear Fr. Joseph, Diane, Lauren, and Joe discuss Christian persecution, both throughout history and in our modern times.
We often want to get ahead in life - succeed in sports, school, the workplace, in relationships. As young adults starting off our lives, we want to make sure it starts off right. But when does this become an unhealthy perfectionism or pride? How do we succeed for God's glory? Hear Fr. Joseph, Lauren, Diane, and Joe discuss striving to reach their goals - while keeping in mind the ultimate goal of Heaven!
Have you heard of Fatima, Lourdes, Medjugorje, these places where Our Lady allegedly appeared? What about heavenly visions, voices of angels and saints, and other mystical experiences? As Catholics, what do we believe about these supernatural encounters with Jesus, Mary, the angels and the saints? Dive in to hear Fr. Joseph, Lauren, and Paul discuss how private revelation has helped them in their spiritual life - and how to discern whether or not they're true!
It's not easy to live for Christ in a world where the Faith is under attack. Whether at work, on the dating scene, in the media, or with friends, it can be a struggle to stay faithful to the Lord amidst a culture that is not centered on Godly values. Hear Fr. Joseph, Lauren, Diane, and Javier discuss the challenges of living out their Faith as young adults in the midst of a mixed-up world!
