New Year’s Resolutions, Best Films (Jan. 11)

As we push into 2020, many people are still wondering if they should make some New Year’s resolutions. This week on Register Radio, we talk to Patrick Reilly, head of the Cardinal Newman Society, about three resolutions you ought to make that will not only help you and your family but the whole Church too. And then, what were the best movies of 2019? We get a Catholic perspective from Register film critic Deacon Steven Greydanus, who recently published his review of 2019 films.

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.

The Earth is Not Our Mother

“The main point of Christianity was this: that Nature is not our mother: Nature is our sister. We can be proud of her beauty, since we have the same father; but she has no authority over us; we have to admire, but not to imitate.”—G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
