Episode # 4157 – Grappling With The Reality Of Spiritual Combat

Fri, 07/12/2019 - 13:19

TGIF loyal listeners, as we come to another Friday in July this summer.  Today, the Two Tony’s discuss how the weeks seem to “fly” by and they pick up the discussion from yesterday, dealing with the topic of mysticism and what it is, as well as how it is associated with God.  This brings to mind the idea of not only loving God, but knowing Him.  This also once again brings to mind how things are different around us and how people need reassurance of their faith and/or reminded to keep their faith the more we keep moving away from God.  To further discuss this misplacement of faith and things the church faces, Father Anthony reads some pages from the book: Infiltration: The Plot to Destroy the Church from Within by Taylor R. Marshall, explaining many of the things that come up within the church and those that the church faces and deals with, as well as Father Anthony still talking about the Spiritual Battle we find ourselves in all the time.

Episode # 5146 - The Two Tony’s On The Restlessness Of The Times

Thu, 07/11/2019 - 13:20

The Two Tony’s are back today and the latest development, is that St Stans had a visit from the Fire Department, to conduct a safety inspection around the church and everything is alright and good.  On a different note, the Two Tony’s focus this time, based on this visit, is how they and everyone feel comfortable with not only firemen, but police and priests around to provide a safe feeling.  Another area, is once again talking about the signs of the times and a need for and/or to reform ourselves in terms of our faith and faith in God.  This again, brings to mind the Spiritual Battle Father Anthony has talked about on many shows and on many occasions, due to the fact that we are all sinners, but need forgiveness for those sins and we deal with restlessness around us.  This brings about Father Anthony talking about how God and the world is good, but also how there are things that make life a challenge and today is the Feast Day of Saint Benedict, who may have a way to deal with all this.

Episode # 5141 - The Two Tony’s On Turning To God When In Need

Wed, 07/03/2019 - 13:09

Due to The 4th of July this week, this is a re-air from April 11th and will officially air tomorrow, the 4th Of July 2019.  Thank you and from all of us at Winds of Change, have a Happy 4th of July everyone.

The Two Tony’s are back with us this Thursday and they are doing good today.  One thing Father Anthony points out is that Holy Week is coming up and how everyone is getting ready for that, as well as Palm Sunday and Easter this month.  The Two Tony’s point out that even though everyone is making preparations, some things have changed in terms of people being able to keep traditions up or up to date.  For example, if someone can’t make it to mass, they can download the readings from the mass.  This allows them to discuss how things are the way they are today and how people turn to God in times of stress.  A few key points with that in mind are that we pray to God and Jesus, which brings back what Jesus taught people, that is trying to not worry about things and/or tomorrow and focus on the current day/situation and another key here is that Jesus and God will help get us through the day and/or our troubles.  From this, the Two Tony’s discuss the upcoming Holy Week and our adoration to God in terms of a source for healing.
