    Ep. 57: Abortion regret — and redemption

    Patricia Sandoval was 12 years-old when an instructor from Planned Parenthood taught her and her classmates about “safe” sex. After three abortions and a job at Planned Parenthood, Patricia says she has found healing and redemption through Christ.

    Ep. 56: 20- Cabernet + Myrrh + Baptism- 20

    Epiphany is more than just the the three kings visiting the child Jesus. It also celebrates the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan River and Jesus’ first miracle at the wedding at Cana. This week, we talk with a Trappist monk who helps young monks create incense; we learn about conditional baptisms from a priest who once performed one; and a Catholic retiree who now helps run a winery near Fort Worth, Texas.

    Ep. 55: And After 8 Days. . .

    Ep. 55: And After 8 Days. . .

    For centuries, Catholics celebrated the Circumcision of the Lord on January 1. That practice ended in 1960. But, what was the significance of Jesus' circumcision, and of circumcision in general?

    We talk to priests, theologians and an art historian to find these answers. Then, we talk with a journalist who went on a years-long quest to find what some believe to be the Church's most unusual relic: the foreskin of Jesus.

    Ep. 54: The Unlikeliest of Friendships

    Ep. 54: The Unlikeliest of Friendships

    This week on the podcast: two unlikely friendships…and one friendship so unlikely, it probably wasn’t a friendship at all.

    We bring you the stories of two college professors with very different viewpoints— Robert George and Cornel West— who became best friends; two heroes of the American political left and right, Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who were friends for 30 years; and the somewhat odd correspondence between Blessed Pius IX and Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy.
