LOVE BASED FAITH with Rev. Ron Rolheiser

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.

RE-THINK with Chris Estrella

Jesus chose young people to be his apostles and disciples. Today how do we get young people to Jesus?

In this interview  by Fr. Mike, Chris Estrella tells of his journey as a young person and the influence of his mother on his faith.  Peer pressure was a big obstacle which sometimes made him hide his faith from others.

Music was always a part of his life and today he works in a diocesan Office of Worship and so on a daily basis is directly involved with faith.

Chris speaks of his work with young people today and what they are looking for. He speaks to them directly and honestly and also speaks to them through his music. One song – Come As You Are – helps the young to feel accepted.

They talk about what the young are looking for in the church. Pope Francis enters the conversation. Chris says that the Pope has upped the “coolness” factor of the Church.
