Gregorian Chant, Doctors of the Church (7/7/2018)

Gregorian Chant, the liturgical music first popularized throughout the Universal Church in the 5th Century remains still popular in Catholic and even secular culture today. On Register radio we find out why chant has endured the test of time with music scholar and author Dr. James Jordan. But first we turn to another timeless treasure of the Catholicism the Doctors of the Church as we talk about an EWTN series produced by our very own Dr. Matthew Bunson.

Coronavirus, Catholic Schools (Aug. 1)

The COVID-19 pandemic has re-emerged as a major health crisis in the United States and around the world. How is the Church responding, and what can be done to keep parishioners safe as they worship? We talk with Dr. Timothy Flanigan, a Catholic deacon and infectious disease specialist at Brown University. Also, we’ve had a lot of news this week on Catholic schools, including an important op-ed by several important Church leaders reminding us that Catholic schools are worth saving. We talk with Register contributor Andrea Picciotti-Bayer.
