July 03, 2013 – Pope Francis Invites Us to Protect the Faith!
// July 3rd, 2013 // The Joy of Discovery
This program considers two invitations by Pope Francis to intercede for the faith in our families and communities. Here, we consider the example of Abraham and the powerful effect of his intercession with Our Lord on behalf of two troubled towns. We will also draw specific examples from the Pope’s own efforts when, as Cardinal in Buenos Aires, his country also faced the “grave” decision whether or not to legalize same-sex unions. He draws attention to the great deprivation that same-sex unions offer children. We will also reflect on Pope Francis’ homily given during the Mass of his inauguration on March 19, the Feast of St. Joseph. Drawing from the example of St. Joseph, Pope Francis shows us how to protect the faith with beauty and sensitivity. Listeners are also invited to join us on July 17 for an interview with Wayne Weible, a great ‘apostle’ of the apparitions of Our Lady in Medjugorje.
