Each month, the show will focus on spreading the "Good News" through the lens of evangelization and discipleship.

New Year’s Resolutions: Scripture and Prayer

The New Year approaches and many of us consider the possibilities for New Year’s Resolutions. This month’s show brought the staff of the Office for Evangelization and Missionary Discipleship together to talk about prayer, scripture, and how we can use those New Year’s resolutions to draw closer to Jesus. Co-hosts Beth White and Jenn Delvaux were joined by Fr. Jim McIlhone, Director of Biblical Formation. Jenn and Fr. Jim discussed the up-coming Word Made Clear virtual Bible Study that will begin in January. You can register for the series here. In addition to the virtual study, Fr. Jim and Jenn discussed the events on January 22 and 25 that are opportunities to hear a presentation from Fr. Jim and learn more about the virtual study. They discussed how this is an opportunity to learn more about scripture, about Jesus, and draw closer in your relationship with Jesus. Other tools for prayer and exploring scripture were shared including online resources, apps for your phone, and what different religious communities offer.

Advent: Reaching out to our brothers and sisters

Advent is a time of preparation for Christmas, externally and internally. This month’s show focused on the common themes of the season – prayer, gift-giving, music, and traditions – through the lens of evangelization. Co-hosts Beth White and Jenn Delvaux were joined by Beth Knobbe, Midwest Region Relationship Manager for Catholic Relief Services, who shared the various Advent activities and prayer resources available through the CRS website: In addition to prayer resources and activities, Beth offered ethically produced gift ideas, which offer an opportunity for story-telling and faith conversations this season. The full gift guide and information about how your gift purchase will make a real impact can be found here: David Anderson, Vice President of Church Music for GIA Music and Director of Music for Ascension Catholic Church in Oak Park, spoke about music, Taizé prayer, and the power of silence during this season of Advent. He encouraged listeners to use opportunities like Taizé prayer to invite friends, family, and colleagues to an experience of prayer. The final portion of the show was dedicated to the Mexican tradition of the Los Posadas – the ritual re-enactment of Mary and Joseph’s search for a lodging in Bethlehem. Jose Torres from the Office for Human Dignity and Solidarity’s Immigration Ministry gave an overview of this rich tradition. Jose was joined by Cecelia who is part of the planning team for the upcoming 12th annual Posada, which is dedicated to the Dreamers here in the Archdiocese on December 15th.

Host Beth White, Director of the Office for Evangelization and Missionary Discipleship, was joined by three guests who each talked about how important it is to listen to the needs of those to whom you minister and to find creative ways to respond to those needs.
