About 700 BC a beautiful woman, Susanna, the wife of Joakim, was subjected to two old men, voyageurs, who tried to catch her with their lust.

This story of Susanna, was excluded from the Protestant canon, but included in the Septuagint. So Catholics can find it in their bible.

Fr. Mike dramatically tells this story of two elders who wanted Susanna to lie with them. She resisted even though she knew that she would be punished, even killed, because these men were powerful in the village. Who would believe her? They testified that she and a young man had committed a sin in the garden and should be condemned to death. A young man, Daniel, came and questioned each elder alone. He was able to catch them in their lies.

Fr.Mike highlights the issues brought up by this story: honesty, sins of religious leaders, and the beauty of death. He also poses questions for discussion, including pornography and who is attractive to you.

LOVE BASED FAITH with Rev. Ron Rolheiser, OMI

Is there hope for us today and where is God when we need him?

Father Mike and his guest Fr. Ron Rolheiser, OMI take on this topic and throw a light on where God is in this quest.  More importantly, where are WE?  God is like the GPS on our cars.  The GPS guru never scolds, is never rude.  He just re calibrates, constantly forgives and is ALWAYS there.  Not a bad metaphor for our own lives. We live in a dysfunctional world as well as a dysfunctional church but there is no other way the world OR the church works.  

"Will you too walk away?" Jesus asked Peter!  To which Peter replied "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life."There is growth and there is hope.
