In the midst of a national conversation on race, the Catholic Church has a lot to add to the dialogue. Its teachings on the dignity of every human being, made in God's image, can heal the wounds that racism has left on our country - but we still have more work to do. Hear Fr. Joseph, Lauren, and special guests John and Sakhile as they speak about racism, and how our faith in the Lord Jesus can heal our nation.
Change is hard. Whether it's starting a new school, new job, moving to a new neighborhood, or any other transition, it takes some adjustment.

"Breaking up is hard to do...", or so the song goes. Sometimes in our relationships, either dating or friendships, we need to step away and end the relationship. How do we do that as a Catholic - truly loving the other person while letting them down easy? Tune in to Fr. Joseph, Carmelena, and Lauren as we discuss the Christian way of breaking up - and how many people do it badly!

All have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God, says St. Paul. In our own lives - and in our world at-large - sin is a big part of our life. But Christ came to take away our sin, and to reconcile us to God. Tune in to our Restless crew to see how they continue to wrestle with sin in their own lives, and how Jesus and His grace is winning the victory in them!
Our world denies the reality of sin - although we see its effects everywhere. Sin harms our relationships with God and others, makes us less like Christ, and obstructs our true goal, Heaven. Why is sin so prevalent, and why do we not recognize it in our own lives? The good news is that Jesus came to take away our sins - if only we acknowledge and repent of them! Join Fr. Joseph, Lauren, Diane, and Javier as we discuss the reality of sin - and the good news that we can be forgiven.
Your local parish church is where our Catholic Faith is usually lived out! But young adults are notoriously missing from most of our parishes - even though we can give a lot of our love, our witness, and our faith to our local church! Join Fr. Joseph, Paul, Javier, and Lauren as we talk about our local parishes and how we young adults can get more involved!
We give and receive love in so many ways - sending someone a card, holding their hand, making food for them, praising and encouraging them. But not all acts of love are equal, and people respond to them differently! Tune in to learn about the Five Love Languages: how people receive and give love in different ways - and how God gives His love to us in a variety of ways! Fr. Joseph, Javier, Lauren, and Paul explore how the Five Love Languages help us to understand how better to love others and how we ourselves receive the love that others want to give!
