For you gluttons for punishment, here are the last four shows
Rod Bennett and I discuss monster movies and past Presidents from a Catholic perspective:
I interview Tricia Bølle, President of the St. Francis Xavier Lay Missionary Society:
I quize newly minted Deacon Steven Greydanus about the super-powers conferred on him in ordination and we talk about the Three Ages of PIXAR:
Simcha and I discuss the latest gun slaughter in the US and she reads her fine essay on the common (and perfectly understandable) “Don’t send thoughts and prayers” trope that is circulating around:
The irony of the “thoughts and prayers” goo from people who are adamantly bent on making absolutely sure that nothing changes with our current gun regime is that Jesus has even sterner words to say about refusal to act to save lives than the angriest atheist:
“Not every one who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. ¶ On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you evildoers.’” (Mt 7:21–23).
In a future
