A Closer Look with Sheila Liaugminas, June 14, 2018

On today’s show:

  • Guest, Msgr. Stuart Swetland joins Sheila to discuss Church teaching on sports. Building those virtues that transfer to other areas of our life; learning focus, dedication and discipline, sport becomes ordered toward holiness. Thomas Aquinas asks, “Can there be virtue in games?”  Play is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.
  • USCCB convened in Fort Lauderdale; highlights from the spring assembly include addressing history of racism in our country; principles for Catholic medical institutions merging with non-Catholic healthcare providers; guidance in the area of asylum seekers.
  • Guest, Jim Kushiner executive director of the Fellowship of St. James and publisher of Touchstone joins the show to discuss the importance of reclaiming ‘patriarchy’ for the health of society; fatherhood is essential for the proper order of family identity. Headship of the family is the greatest gift a man can give to his wife and children.
  • Fatherlessness factors into criminality: Not necessarily a formula, but examples abound.
