October 9, 2014 – David Scott and Sherry Boas

Ken talks with Scott “The Love That Made Mother Teresa: How Her Secret Visions and Dark Nights Can Help You Conquer the Slums of Your Heart” (Sophia Institute Press) and Sherry Boas “Billowtail”(Caritas Press)
In considering Mother Teresa, her private visions, and her secret sufferings, David Scott has discovered scores of early episodes and chance encounters that point to later, larger meanings. These remarkable patterns, he suggests, show that Mother Teresa’s life was choreographed from above, as if a divine script had been written for her from before her birth. Davids’s book can be purchased at: shop.sophiainstitute.com Visit his website: www.davidscottwritings.com

“Billowtail” is Sherry Boas’s first young adult fiction novel. It is the year 1214. A baby squirrel falls from the nest and lands in the passing saddlebag of a 13-year-old boy. Still blind, deaf, hairless and unable to eat solid food, there is little hope for Puttermunch’s survival. Moved by the persistent pleading of his distraught mother, a selection of five squirrels set out to find Puttermunch, launching a perilous and life-altering journey on the Way of St. James in Spain.

September 03, 2014 – History & Science Support the Holy Shroud

Did you know that there are 145 points of congruence between the Shroud of Turin and the image of Our Lord engraved on the 7th century Roman coin known as the Solidus of Justinian II? Are you aware that at the Monastery of St. Catherine in Sinai that there is an 6th century image of King Abgar V of Edessa holding a cloth on which is imprinted the face of Jesus? Remarkably, two centuries earlier, Church historian St. Eusebius recorded that King Abgar had been healed of leprosy when he touched this cloth! Is this evidence that the Shroud of Turin could have existed from the earliest centuries? It may be, but there is still more. There is also scientific evidence that defies explanation and it pertains to the image on the Shroud itself!

Information presented here is based on the 2014 exposition “La Sabana Santa”, Diocesan Museum, Zaragoza, Spain.

August 20, 2014 – History Supports the Holy Shroud, Part 1

In 1350, the French knight, Geoffroi de Charny from Lirey, claimed to be in possession of the shroud that wrapped Jesus’ body after his death. This is a fascinating fact, but is there information that supports this claim? One of the most amazing pieces is found in the discovery of 1898: the image on the Shroud is actually a giant negative! The Shroud appears to have acted as photographic film for some mysterious light source! In addition, the history of religious art and iconography portraying the face of Jesus also positively refutes the already questionable Carbon 14 dating test conducted in 1988. This is the first part in a series of talks based on the 2014 exposition, “La Sabana Santa” in the Diocesan Museum, Zaragoza, Spain.

April 1, 2013

In this particular program Mark and Frances discuss the simply yet remarkable life of a Secular Carmelite from Spain named Josefa Naval Girbes who lived from 1820 – 1893. Blessed Josefa lived a perfectly simple life, opening her home as a school for embroidery. She used the quiet hours of labor to instruct her young female students about the Catholic faith. She was well known for instructing her girls that their primary mission in life should be to “sanctify yourself and sanctify others.” Despite her remarkable simplicity, she had a very disciplined approach to her pursuit of holiness, and is also remembered for her rather direct counsel to “Reach holiness, no matter what the Cost.” This simple woman, who chose to live in the world, perfectly fulfilled God’s will by living a life of holiness, but also by bearing remarkable fruit in helping so many others to pursue a life in Union with God.
