2017-06-30 - Theology Roundtable - 06/30/2017 - Public discourse and the Truth
Public discourse and the Truth. Today’s Open Line—Friday slot offers a special EWTN Theology Roundtable show with EWTN’s vice-president of theology, Colin Donovan, who sits down with EWTN theology advisors Robert Klesko and Noah Lett to dialogue about the relationship between the Truth and contemporary discourse in the media, politics and life. What if someone teaches a different truth, or a different Jesus? How do I handle truth with someone who is fixated on the “pro-choice” stance as a way of dismissing every other position, when it comes to a conversation about human life? How should I handle being persecuted for living Truth? What can we do to bring back critical thinking? Sit down with our theologians who answer these and other questions, right here, on EWTN Radio Open Line—and our special EWTN Theology Roundtable show.
2017-06-09 - Theology Roundtable - 06/09/2017 - Utopias, Dystopias and the Future
Utopias, Dystopias and the Future. Today’s Open Line—Friday slot offers a special EWTN Theology Roundtable show with EWTN’s vice-president of theology, Colin Donovan, who sits down with EWTN theology advisors Laura Dittus and Noah Lett to talk about the utopian and dystopian ideas in politics, economics, science and culture. Much of what makes up public discourse today is either utopian in its view of the world man can—or should—build, or despairing of being able to build any kind of a truly human future. Inherent in both perspectives is the absence of a place for man as he really is… and paradoxically, no place for God, either. Colin, Laura and Noah answer questions like: What do you say if you talk to someone who disagrees with your “facts?” Is the role of utopianism to throw idealism at a real problem, such as those I’ve heard say “we only need love,” in the face of recent terror attacks? How can the definition of “person” help society? Do you think the idea of a godly utopia has affected the way churches’ outer forms look… like how clerics dress for Mass? Are the Church’s statements on economics utopian? Is justice the way we show our love? Is war a mortal sin? Sit down with our theologians who answer these and other questions, right here, on EWTN Radio Open Line—and our special EWTN Theology Roundtable show.
2017-05-05 - Theology Roundtable - 05/05/2017 - The Fatima Centenary
Today’s Open Line—Friday slot offers a special EWTN Theology Roundtable show with EWTN’s vice-president of theology, Colin Donovan, who sits down with EWTN theology advisors Robert Klesko and David Gregson to talk about the continuing importance of the apparitions of Our Lady in Fátima, which began 100 years ago on May 13. Our callers want to know: What are the secrets of Our Lady of Fatima? How can Our Lady of Fatima help us get through life? Can you tell me more about Amelia—the children’s playmate who had died—and can we shorten her time? Can we offer a plenary indulgence for Amelia? What is the Scapular? How do we know that Mary is not getting in the way of praying to Jesus? Was Russia’s conversion going to be into Orthodoxy—instead of Catholicism? Sit down with our theologians who answer these and other questions, right here, on EWTN Radio Open Line—and our special EWTN Theology Roundtable show.
