Dr. Tom Curran is joined by Monday Cohost Fr. Kurt Nagel to honor the Feast of St. Bonaventure and explore the gift of the saints. Fr. Nagel and Tom list the most impactful authors in their life: J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, G. K. Chesterton, St. Bonaventure, St. Teresa of Avila, and more!
Dr. Tom Curran shares complementary insights from two diocesan priests who have profoundly impacted his life, Fr. Marc Montminy and Fr. Mark Noonan: 1.) praise and silence, 2.) solidarity and solitude, 3.) action and contemplation, 4.) leading and being led, 5.) vision and tradition, 6.) purpose and identity, 7.) healing and learning to live well with one’s brokenness, 8.) gifts and gift, 9.) multiplicity and simplicity, 10.) Mary/Joseph and Bonaventure/St. JPII.
Dr. Tom and Kari Curran reflect on the good, happy and sad moments of 2017. The Currans reflect on the act of reflecting, share quotes from saints and give three reasons for a gap in spiritual progress: diversion, distraction, and dispersion.
Dr. Tom Curran begins the program by sharing 10 reasons people avoid accountability. Tom encourages leaders and parents to be a ‘good setter’ and shares insights from St. Bonaventure, St. Philip Neri, St. John Paul II, and Fr. Jacques Philippe.
