GOD'S WOMEN: TAMAR

Imagine a woman who poses as a prostitute and sleeps with her father-in-law. Would you expect that story to be in the Bible? Probably not, but the story of Tamar is in the Book of Genesis. She is often unknown and her story may shock you!

Fr. Mike, as he has done in this series on God’s Women, sets forth the history of Tamar, giving the background and highlighting the marriage laws that pertain to her.

In one sense, Tamar is a kind of “BlackWidow” since two of her husbands die after marrying her, and she is left without the children she so wanted. What happens is another one of those dramatic tales that would make a good TV series.

Then Fr. Mike talks about how this story relates to us today. He poses questions to help us delve deeper into the Bible story to see if we are plagued by the past,  how we can forgive, and what steps we can take to stand up for injustice.

To See Again with Deborah Quellete

Sometimes we go blissfully along and then something happens that changes our lives. In this interview,  Fr. Mike questions Deborah Ouelette about her life.

Deborah was born and raised a Catholic in a wonderful Polish Catholic family. They moved to Detroit in the early 70's in the midst of all the racial problems of the time.
They had an unfortunate incident with a Catholic school and so she ended up in a Lutheran School. From there the family became Lutherans and remained so for several years.

Then her mother died suddenly. It was her death that changed Deborah's life.  From the loving care of a grief support group in a Catholic church, Deborah and her husband made their way back to the Catholic Church. Several things happened to them in this process including Deborah's struggle with severe eye problems.
