I'll Be Speaking in Ontario, California, Next Weekend (Nov. 21 & 22)

Please join us, if you can. I'll be conducting a weekend parish seminar on apologetics and other Catholic themes at San Secondo D'Asti Catholic Church in the tiny, postage-stamp-sized town of Guasti, Friday evening at 7:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. 

The parish is literally right across the street from the Ontario Airport and is very easy to get to off the 10 Freeway. The address is 250 N. Turner Ave., Guasti, CA 91743. The number to call for info, etc., is 909-390-0011. 

I hope you can join me. Please help spread the word by telling your friends. See you there.

Cardinal Francis Arinze Splains Why “Liturgical Dance” Should be Rejected

Included in his remarks is this gem: “Young people's rock music is good . . . for [a] picnic. But not for Mass.”


Radio Days

Time has flown by since I started hosting the Thursday edition of EWTN Radio's “Open Line” broadcast (every Thursday at 3:00 p.m. Eastern). My three-year anniversary is next month, which means 150+ shows have come and gone. Whew!

Happily, EWTN archives all the shows in the radio section of their website, and I've gathered the links to all the shows from 2008 here. You can download them to your computer or i-Pod and listen when it's convenient. Enjoy.

What a fun and interesting ride it has been for me, and hopefully for my listeners. I'm grateful to EWTN for inviting me to host the show, and I also owe a debt of thanks to my friend Marcus Grodi, who had hosted the show before me. He asked me to take over when he decided to launch his very successful “Deep in Scripture” radio show.
