PART 1:  Bodacious Women

This week on Register Radio, I spoke with author Pat Gohn about her new book Blessed, Beautiful and Bodacious: Celebrating the Gift of Catholic Womanhood.  It’s obviously a fitting time to talk about women, since we are honoring our mothers on Mothers’ Day and our Blessed Mother, Mary, during the entire month of May.

I started off my interview asking Gohn about the three powerful words she uses to describe women. Here’s what she said: “What I see the book doing is introducing a conversation with woman about their dignity, their gift and their mission in the world. So each of those words speaks to one part of that: We have a blessed dignity; we have beautiful...READ MORE

In the first half of Register Radio on Friday April 26, the Register’s correspondent in Boston, Justin Bell talked about the city’s recovery after a week of tragedy and terror, which also gave witness to great acts of courage, self-sacrifice and faith.

Friday April 26 marked one week after Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the living suspect of the Boston Marathon bombing, was captured in Watertown, MA.  Bell described what it was like Friday April 19 to experience a lock down of much of the Boston area with a an alleged bomber on the loose:

This week on Register Radio, Dan Burke discussed Where Heaven Meets Earth, a documentary that will be airing on EWTN on April 30th at 6:30 Eastern.  Where Heaven Meets Earth is about how Father Damien Cook restored the sacred and revitalized a once declining parish in Omaha, Nebraska.

Dan interviewed Don Carey, the CEO of Storytel, who explained how reviving the sacred music and architecture in  St. Peter Catholic Church began to help the congregation raise their hearts and minds to heaven every time they entered.  The parish that was at one time about to close--demographic change was part of its decline--is now brimming with young families.

Father C. John McCloskey talks of the pope's decision and Church historian and author Matthew Bunson explains the process of electing a new Holy Father

Saturday, February 16, 2013 8:37 AM Comments (7)

On Register Radio this week, I spoke with Father C. John McCloskey about the big news that’s on almost every Catholic’s mind—Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation.

I asked Father McCloskey a few questions, such as: How could the Holy Father resign? CEOs might resign but fathers can’t resign.  And will Pope Benedict’s resignation set a precedent for future popes? 

To learn how Father McCloskey responded to these questions and more, listen to the show.

In the second half of the program, Dan Burke spoke with Matthew Bunson, Church historian and author of The Pope Encyclopedia and We Have a Pope! Benedict XVI, the first Catholic biography of the Holy Father in the English language.

Today on Register Radio, canon lawyer and theologian, Chancellor JD Flynn of the Archdiocese of Denver spoke about Catholic identity at Catholic hospitals. 

Last week, news outlets reported that a Colorado Catholic hospital made the argument in a wrongful death case that a fetus is not a legal person.  When the situation was brought to the attention of the Colorado bishops they acted quickly.  The bishops met with leadership at Catholic Health Initiatives and soon CHI publicly admitted their legal argument was morally flawed and they reaffirmed their commitment to protecting life from conception to natural death.

Flynn explained the challenges Catholic hospitals face in keeping their...READ MORE
