Catholic Bytes (airing 7:06-7:19am EST) asks, you may have heard that the Pope has convoked a synod on synodality…is this just a meeting about church bureaucracy? Fr. Conrad and Fr. Alec break that down a bit more for us and explain why a synod on synodality is actually quite important. As the preparatory document states, “by journeying together and reflecting together on the journey that has been made, the Church will be able to learn through Her experience which processes can help Her to live communion, to achieve participation, to open Herself to mission.”

Do Something Beautiful (airing 10:44-11:29am EST) welcomes film director Cameron O’Hearn! We discuss the project I worked with him on, which he calls “the case for the Traditional Latin Mass.” Cameron shares with us how his love for the Latin Mass developed, and the shocking history of the Latin Mass in the past decades, and why the Latin Mass may be so closely tied to belief in the True Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. They go way back in Cameron’s own story, and talk about how he came to be a filmmaker, what inspires and surprises him about making films, what film has in common with evangelization, what Beauty means for us in the world today, and keeping the most important things front and center in our lives.
Poco a Poco (airing 11:32am-12:18pm EST) features a discussion on believing that God is enough. Even when we experience God’s goodness, repeatedly and in big and small ways, it can be a struggle to keep believing that God is enough. He is LORD. He is enough, and we only have to give him permission to work. It sounds simple, but it can be tough when we’ve faced rejection in other areas of our lives. How do we believe? How do we find the courage and take the risk—to learn he always shows up?
