Talking about the "things that matter most" on July 23
4:00 – CatholicVote.org
CatholicVote.org is a dynamic new national project employing powerful new media and technology focused on shaping the minds and imagination of the American people through prayer, grassroots education, and action. Founded in 2008, CatholicVote.org is neither conservative nor liberal, neither Republican nor Democrat. We aspire to be something even greater. The late William F. Buckley once described the purpose of National Review, the celebrated magazine that he founded, by explaining: "It stands athwart history, yelling Stop!" CatholicVote.org might similarly be described as "standing athwart history, yelling Rejoice!" President Brian Burch joins us.
4:30 – Does Social Justice Require Socialism?
Does social justice require socialism? Fr. Robert Sirico is here to answer that question and address the increasing calls for government intervention in financial market regulation, health care, education reform, and economic stimulus in the name of “social justice.”
5:00 – Catholic Church Architecture and the Spirit of the Liturgy
We talk with Dr. Denis McNamara about the deep meanings of liturgical art and architecture, and by association, the Sacred Liturgy itself. He is here to help us to drink deeply from the wells of the tradition, to look with fresh eyes at things thought to be outdated or meaningless, and glean the principles which underlie the richness of the Catholic faith.
5:30 – Catholics, Hollywood, Faith, Film and Culture
Joan of Arcadia, Mission Impossible, Batman Forever, and That '70s Show have been some of the biggest productions in film and television. But did you know that Christians have been behind the scenes of these and other box office smashes? Industry professional Barbara Nicolosi has discovered that the Church is very much alive in Hollywood--and making a difference! Barbara presents a fascinating look at Hollywood through the eyes of Christian writers, producers, and executives living out their faith behind TV shows, on movie sets, and in studio offices. She tells us what you can do to close the gap between Christianity and culture.
