I’ll be chatting live from Israel with EWTN Radio’s “Son Rise Morning Show” host Matt Swaim tomorrow, Friday May 23 at 6:45am EST. We’ll talk about my trip thus far and all the excitement brewing for the Pope’s arrival here on Saturday. Listen live or catch the podcast later here.
Violence, and then fire - an intriguing parallel between Pentecost and the George Floyd riots. But, unlike the violence and fire of an out-of-control plea for justice, the violence and fire of Pentecost were life-giving and transformative. They brought forth courageous men who went forth to spread the Good News to the ends of the earth. Many of them suffered martyrdom after having given witness to Christ. They were men and women of conviction who stood strong against hostility.
