The Popecast (airing 1:06-1:53am EST) is about a pope that needs no introduction, being one of the finest men to ever grace the Chair of St. Peter, but he does need a long episode to tell the whole tale of his long and eventful life.

Outside The Walls (airing 4:08-5:07am EST) features a discussion with Kristin Putnam about Catholics being Pro-Life. This is a consistent tenet of the faith.

The Exodus 90 Show (airing 5:10-5:56am EST) is about time in prayer. Feeling like you can avoid going to the chapel to pray today because the calendar shows that there’s a tomorrow?

Bishop Baron’s Sermons (airing 9:06-9:22am EST), Bishop talks about the Gospel from October 20th, the marvelous story of the healing of blind Bartimaeus—an icon of tremendous power and a sacred picture of the spiritual life and the process of salvation.

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.”
Catholicism With My Kid (airing 3:25-3:41pm EST) is titled The Bible – Where Did it Come From?, and discusses who wrote it, Bible trivia, history, and why some Bibles are different. Also we get into a mix-up between two historical figures.

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 7:32-8:18pm 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?
