October 23, 2014 – Mike Aquilina and Karen Kelly Boyce

Ken talks with Mike Aquilina, coauthor with Cardinal Wuerl, “The Feasts: How the Church Year Forms Us as Catholics” (Image) and and Karen Kelly Boyce author of “Sisters of the Last Straw” series. Mike Aquilina and Cardinal Wuerl examine the history and traditions behind both favorite and forgotten holidays, from Christmas to Easter, from the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity to the Feast of the Holy Angels. Catholic faith is festive, and the Catholic faithful count their days by celebrating the mysteries of Jesus’ life. There is a message to be found in the passing of days, weeks, and seasons. Through the feasts, ordinary Christians learn the life of Christ, share it, and come to imitate it. Mike’s book can be purchased at: www.imagecatholicbooks.com To learn more about Mike visit www.mikeaquilina.com/

Karen Boyce’s “Sisters of the Last Straw” (Chesterton Press) series is for children ages 6-11 years old. There are currently three books in the series about a group of misfit nuns who all have “bad habits”. They are trying to overcome their faults while learning to tolerate each other and spread the love of Jesus. In a comical way, this book teaches simple Gospel lessons with fun and mystery!
