Dr. Tom Curran is joined by Monday Cohost Fr. Jeff Lewis, Pastor of St. Mary Parish in Spokane Valley, to reflect on All Saints Day and All Souls Day. Fr. Lewis and Tom talk about the miracle of St. Januarius, the stewardship of relics, incorrupt saints, purgatory, and more.
Dr. Tom Curran talks about the common misunderstanding of one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, Fear of the Lord. Tom encourages parents to see ‘the gift over the gap,’ pray for souls in purgatory, stand up for life, expect resistance, and use spiritual tools to repair and protect-from damage.
