The call to Sainthood is universal. Each of us is called to be the great Saint God intended us to be, but we fall short time and time again. On this episode, I am joined by Deacon Edward Kleinguetl, who explains a timeless message, and formula even, for living a radically Christian way and attaining the most fruitful relationship with God Almighty, and through Him and His grace becoming great Saints. Join Annie and Deacon Ed as the...

Do you have someone in your life with whom you don’t get along? Are there people who you feel like you just “click” and others you simply don’t? Are there people you’d rather hang out with and people you just don’t? In this episode, Chuck and Annie explore what it means to Love as “God is Love” and what it means to “like” someone and why we don’t “like” everyone. We are most certainly called to Love one another (to will the good of...

With an all-too ironic opening to the show, Chuck and Annie give you some updates on our friend "Bob" being persecuted for his Catholic faith in his country, Chuck's on-the-mend black eye delt by an accidental 4-year old knee to the face, and then dive DEEP into this week's topic!

Ancient Aliens is a popular show on the History Channel, and Chuck and Annie get a kick out of watching the episodes. There are a few episodes in particular, though, that talk about the plausibility of Biblical events and how they can readily be explained by the intervention of "other worldly powers" aka aliens. (Cue eye roll) In this episode, Chuck and Annie explore a particular episode of this show that discusses Moses...

We can all pretty much recite the major parts of the Wedding at Cana from the Gospel of John (John 2), but have we truly understood all of layers the St. John intended in his unique style of writing? In this episode, we walk you through the intricate details of this Gospel passage and show you how it illuminates a myriad of other Truths about Jesus' nature, the Blessed Mother's essential role, and how it affects every momen...

Happy Feast Day to our Patron Saint! St Antony the Abbot, pray for us!

As a follow up to last week's episode on the Traditional Latin Mass or Tridentine Mass, which is climbing the charts as one of our most downloaded episodes ever (second to our interview with Bishop Robert Barron), we are talking about the beautiful tradition of veiling. Why did women used to do it? Does it appear in Scripture? Why did women stop? Why is it ...

The Catholic Faith is the fullness of Truth, and to worship our Triune God, we are blessed with many different ways. There are many different Catholic rites in communion with the Pope in Rome, such as the Byzantine Rite, and then within the Roman Rite, we also have different expressions of authentic worship. Most of us are extremely familiar with the Mass known as the Novus Ordo Mass, which is the way the Mass has been celebrated s...

This week we are recording live from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, where we spent the week with family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving. While we were in town, we went to see a movie (Fantastic Beasts II), and our car-ride conversation plus the trailers before the movie sparked this episode. How do we define ourselves? How does society want to define or not define genders and gender roles? What’s the right answer? Find out this wee...

In light of the current Youth Synod in Rome, the staggering statistics of Catholics leaving the faith and individuals who do not identify with any religion at all (aka the Nones), and our current culture of “meh”, Chuck and Annie identify a major issue and tackle this subject based on their wide experience especially with the youth.

In this episode you'll discover which one you might be and which one you might want to be and why.... and what on earth this has to d...
