Bringing Christ into the Streets

At the Good Friday Walk for Peace 2017, more than 1500 diverse people from throughout the Archdiocese gathered to pray the Stations of Cross in the streets of the Englewood neighborhood. On today’s show, we listened to voices from the day, through recorded audio clips and conversations with live guests. Our guests were Ryan Lents, director for the Office for Human Dignity and Solidarity who also served as a co-host for today’s show. Ryan shared his experience of being on the organizing committee and the meaning of the experience for him. Additional guests included, Mearl Sledge, who grew up in Englewood, is a Chicago bus driver, biological and foster mother, and a parishioner of St. Thomas in Hyde Park; Tyrone Pittman, the Choir Director of the Chicago Black Catholic Choir, also directs the choirs of Holy Angels and St. Phillip Neri Catholic churches; and Laura Field is a business owner and spiritual director at her parish, Old St. Patrick’s, and at St. Benedict Catholic Church on the Northside. Each of these guests shared why they chose to attend the Walk for Peace, the hope they found in the experience, and the power that prayer has to transform each of us and our communities.

Streets, Satellites, and Science – Ways to Share Our Faith with Others

On today’s show, we highlighted four upcoming opportunities in our Archdiocese to discover language for sharing our faith. Our first guest, Fr. Don Nevins, pastor of Saint Agnes of Bohemia Parish, discussed how his parish joins with five other parishes in the Little Village neighborhood to bring the re-enactment of the Way of the Cross (Via Crucis) to the streets to more than 5,000 participants on Good Friday (April 14th this year) as a way to pray through movement and share their faith with the larger community. Michael Dopp, president of Redeemer Ministries, joined us to talk about the meaning of evangelization and the upcoming New Evangelization Summit on May 12-13th. The Conference, hosted in Ottawa, Canada, will be broadcast to more than 35 host locations throughout North America, including the Archdiocese of Chicago. Our final guest was Fr. John Kartje, president and rector of Mundelein Seminary/University of Saint Mary of the Lake. Fr. Kartje, who holds a Ph.D. in astrophysics discussed two upcoming events on faith and science, one to be hosted at the Seminary on March 16th & 17th and the other at Adler Planetarium on May 18th. He discussed the ways in which faith and science can dialogue and how both can show us how God is present in the world.

The Movie Silence and Evangelizing through Film and Media

On today’s show, we discuss the newest film by Martin Scorsese, Silence, and why it is important to utilize various forms of communication to evangelize. Fr. James Martin, SJ, who is a Jesuit priest, a writer and editor for America Magazine, and an author of several books, joined us to discuss his role as one of the spiritual and Jesuit advisors for the film. The movie, which depicts 17th century Jesuit missionaries in Japan, is a challenging film on faith that leaves viewers with many deeply thought-provoking questions. We take up some of those questions on our show today. Joining Beth White as a guest co-host is James Erler, SJ, Parish Vitality Coordinator for the Archdiocese.

Following Mary and Joseph and Welcoming Jesus

For our Christmas episode, we focus on the theme of the Christmas story, following Mary and Joseph as they journey in anticipation for welcoming Jesus.

We are joined by Arturo Gonzalez, Coordinator for Pastoral Migratoria to talk about the Immigration Posada; Sr. Stephanie Baliga from the Mission of Our Lady of the Angels to talk about the Mission's outreach to the West Humboldt Park community; and Ray Pingoy from the Office of Human Dignity and Solidarity to talk about the March for Life.
