Churches Preparing for Next Phase (May 23)

Churches are re-opening across the country, but some of them are in defiance of their own state governors, and the U.S. Justice Department Office of Civil Rights is weighing in. Meanwhile, in Europe, similar battles are under way over when and how the faithful can return safely to Mass and the sacraments. This week on Register Radio we catch up on all of the COVID-19 developments. Plus, we look at other news that may have been missed in the midst of the pandemic.

USCCB Meeting, Pro-Life Gains (Nov. 21)

The U.S. Bishops met this week for their annual fall meeting under the shadow of the scandal surrounding the Vatican’s report on Theodore McCarrick. What did the bishops say, and what lies ahead for the Church in the United States? We talk to Catholic News Agency DC editor Ed Condon. And then, the 2020 election brought hard-fought gains for the pro-life movement in Congress. We hear from Lauretta Brown, Register staff writer, for what the pro-life cause can expect in 2021.

The McCarrick Report (Nov. 14)

The long-awaited McCarrick Report was published this week, documenting how the one-time archbishop of Washington and a cardinal survived for so long despite the rumors, accusations and lies. This week on Register Radio, we talk to Register Rome correspondent Edward Pentin about the report. And then, we are joined by Ave Maria Radio’s Al Kresta to discuss the fallout from the report and what needs to happen next.
