GOD'S WOMEN: JEZEBEL!

One of the most unpopular women in the Bible is Jezebel. She was an evil person. How can we relate her story to our lives?

In this program, Fr. Mike sets out the historical context. Jezebel married Ahab, the King of the northern country of present day Holy Land. She brought in 450 priests of the god Baal  who was the god she worshiped there. She also orchestrated the death of an owner of a vineyard the King wanted so that he could have it. The prophet Elijah killed the priests and foretold that Jezebel would die a horrible death. So Jezebel determined to kill Elijah.

Fr. Mike then introduces topics that arise from this story. Mixed religions in a marriage can have both good and not so good consequences. Who are the foreign gods in our lives? In what do we trust for our peace and security? How can coveting things and/or people harm us?

He then poses some questions for use in group study.

REMAIN IN ME with Suzanne Stephens
After many years away from God and from the Church, is it possible to come back and find answers?

In this interview by Fr. Mike, Suzanne Stephens talks about her journey of ignoring God for years, then searching for a religion that “fit” her. She was raised by grandparents in the Baptist Church. Then her grandmother got Alzheimer’s and her home life became chaotic – as did her spiritual life.  Later, somehow, Suzanne studied the Bible in college and in a Catholic parish.  It was there that she experienced her “moment of grace”.

Later on in this interview, Fr. Mike and Suzanne discuss the effect of all this on her four children and the importance of example and community.
