Ken’s guest is Paula Huston, author of A Season of Mystery – 10 Spiritual Practices for Embracing A Happier Second Half of Life (Loyola Press) We live in a culture that tells us there are few things worse than aging, that we should avoid aging at all costs, and that we must shun death. And yet, no matter how much money we spend on health supplements, no matter how many gurus we consult, the fact remains unchanged: We will grow old. In A Season of Mystery, 60-year-old Paula Huston—a grandmother, and also a caretaker for her own mother and for her in-laws—shares with readers a far more fulfilling way to approach how we live and how we think about the second half of life. Each chapter offers a spiritual practice that is particularly suited to nurturing us in ways we would never have recognized in our younger lives. You can purchase her book at: www.loyolapress.com

Ken’s guest is Dr Aaron Kheriaty, author of The Catholic Guide to Depression (Sophia Institute Press) How can the saints, the sacraments, and psychiatry can help you break depression’s grip and find happiness again? Countless Christians-including scores of saints-have suffered profound, pervasive sorrow that modern psychiatrists call “depression.” Then, as now, great faith and even fervent spiritual practices have generally failed to ease this wearying desolation of soul. In his book, Catholic psychiatrist Aaron Kheriaty reviews the effective ways that have recently been devised to deal with this grave and sometimes deadly affliction – ways that are not only consistent with the teachings of the Church, but even rooted in many of those teachings.
