St. Joseph’s Workshop with Father Matthew Spencer, December 5, 2017

On today’s show:

  • Father Matthew tells the story about a tattoo and a hospital patient: Can we place medical directives on our body?
  • Pope Benedict XVI wrote extensively on hope. Pope Francis says optimism disappoints, but hope does not. Jesus accepted the Cross because he knew the Grace it would give you.
  • Ipsos Mori is a global marketing organization. For the last 30 years, they have been studying how much you trust those around you. Trust in clergy has declined 20%. How much do Catholics trust other Catholics?
  • Kevin O’Leary from Shark Tank is worth over $400 million. He is religious about not buying coffee, and instead makes it at home. The police department in Essex created an Advent calendar with their most wanted suspects.
