Episode # 5066 – The Two Tony’s Share The Stress And Distress

Thu, 03/21/2019 - 13:21

The Two Tony’s on Thursday and they have lots to discuss today.  For one thing, Father Anthony shares more on the stress and distress that we all deal with and face, including some of the things that have caused stress and distress in the world recently.  The Two Tony’s share how even though we do suffer, we also have the gratitude that God will still help us in our time(s) of need, bringing to mind again sacrifice and adoration.  Another thing Father Anthony brings up is how he has talked to some people who have heard about the reported list of priests in Illinois that were/are deeply affected by the sexual abuse scandals, including those who are connected to them and the priests themselves.  This in turn brings back how God will help in these disturbing times.

Episode # 5065 – Father Koys’s Deeper Examination At Thomas Cranmer And Unconditional Love

Wed, 03/20/2019 - 13:19

Father Koys is back this week and ready to wrinkle your brain again as he usually does and he’s letting the Holy Spirit guide us on the choice of topics today.  With that in mind, Father Koys looks at chapters in World History and how it relates to today, things going on, and how our Church is today.  His two major focuses on the show are: looking more at the Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Cranmer (which he talked about last week) and the other is looking at a form of unconditional love, in terms of our relationship with God.  First, by looking more at Thomas Cranmer, Father Koys examines him further by looking at a time in his life around 1532, during the reign of King Henry VIII.  The second topic Father Koys discusses, unconditional love which he talked about at his sermon last weekend and applying it to Catholic and Non-Catholic areas, by bringing up Dennis Prager talking about it.

Episode # 5064 – The Feast Day Of Saint Joseph 2019

Tue, 03/19/2019 - 13:36

The Two Tony’s are here doing the show on this beautiful day in Chicago, for the sun is shining and not too cold, but comfortable.  Father Anthony talks about the beauty around us in Chicago, not only with the weather, but the Chicago Skyline and other aspects.  This allows him and Tony discuss the Feast Day of St Joseph and share some of the history behind him, being the Virgin Mary’s husband and the legal and Foster Father of Christ.  From St Joseph caring for Christ, this allows the Two Tony’s to discuss how the world around us is full of sin and bad things, but there is still hope and goodness, as well as those who do good and good deeds, similar to how Saint Joseph took care of Christ.  One other thing is Father Anthony asks all to think of one word that can lead to renewal with things around us and one aspect of the answer is sacrifice.

Episode # 5056 – The Season Of Lent 2019

Thu, 03/07/2019 - 13:18

It’s the second day of Lent in 2019 and lots of things are going on this year, with all the masses held so far and Father Anthony, Cristina, and Tony sharing all that has been happening.  One thing is how successful Ash Wednesday was yesterday for this year and how important it is, not only to them, but also the importance of why people should participate in it.  This brings to mind how people seem to treat Ash Wednesday and Lent itself these days differently than before, as well as those who continue to celebrate it in the way it should be and its traditions and importance, not only for ourselves but for our faith.  Father Anthony uses this to remind us that we are all sinners, while at the same time seeking forgiveness for those sins and we are facing judgement and that there is a need for prayer and penance.  He also brings to mind how times have changed too, such as how sexualized society is around us, leading to a need for penance.

Episode # 5054 – Preparing For Lent 2019

Tue, 03/05/2019 - 13:31

The gang is back and all here today, getting ready for Lent to begin tomorrow and talk of Paczki Day, with paczki’s, donuts, and pastries being the tasty start of the show.  Everyone talks of all kinds of wonderful treats, providing some history behind them too.  On a more serious subject, Father Anthony, Cristina, and Tony talk more on the importance of Lent, and how different generations deal or practice some of the beliefs and traditions of the church for Lent.  This brings to mind more on the faith people have and how things are different and times change.  With change in mind, Father Antony turns to talking about friendship and social media in terms of how people are different and times have changed, but reminds us that Life is a struggle, but God is there to help us and how we need a “inner chamber” or a place where we need to get away from things and nurture ourselves and our relationship with God, which relates again to Lent.
