On June 6th Ken talks with guests Russell Shaw American Church – the Remarkable Rise, Meteoric Fall, and Uncertain Future of Catholicism in America (Ignatius Press) and David Calvillo Real Men Pray the Rosary – A Practical Guide to a Powerful Prayer (Ave Maria Press) Russell Shaw asks if the “Americanization” of American Catholics-their cultural assimilation, has been a blessing or a curse for the Church in the United States? Or has it been a bit of both? Cultural assimilation has undoubtedly conferred many benefits on Catholics. Their absorption into the secular culture of America, however, now threatens the Catholic identity of millions of faithful and of their institutions, such as schools, universities, and hospitals. His book is available at: www.ignatius.com
Ken’s second guest David N. Calvillo says that the Rosary isn’t just for “old ladies and funerals,” that it’s a powerful tool for men as well. Praying the Rosary “enables one to see our Lord and experience our Christian faith through Mary’s eyes.” David’s book is available at: www.avemariapress.com To find out more about his organization visit: http://realmenpraytherosary.org/
