Our special guest for this week’s show is Woodeene Koenig-Bricker, author of Ten Commandments for the Environment: Pope Benedict XVI Speaks Out for Creation and Justice.[podcast]http://media.libsyn.com/media/catholicmoments/cm112.mp3[/podcast]
This noted and Catholic journalist skillfully weaves together Pope Benedict’s key statements on environmental justice into one volume. Additionally, she offers commentary that helps to unpack the Ten Commandments for the Environment, which were recently released by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. Woodeene helps us understand how a commitment to being environmentally responsible blends with our Catholic faith and offers suggestions for building this lifestyle within our families.
We begin a series of monthly reflections on the Year of the Priest. In today’s reflection, Deacon Tom invites us to consider that priests are a manifestation of the love of Christ, and that priests are the gloves that God uses to touch us.
In this week’s Mary Moment, Sarah Reinhard reflects on Mary as a baby person, inspired by the experience of her brother’s new son.
