Salt and Light - Episode 56: I Love you, but I don’t like you

February 21, 2019

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 another as other), but are we expected to also “like” everyone, too? Join us!

Salt and Light - Episode 55: Pro-Life, Abortion, and the Culture of Death with Lauren Enriquez

February 15, 2019

Parental discretion is advised.** Nearly one year after she joined us in studio, Mrs. Lauren Enriquez (Public Relations Manager for Human Coalition) joins us again for a powerful episode on the Pro-Life Movement, Abortion, and the Culture of Death. She gives us a year-in-review including federal legislation, executive orders, state legislation, and the political and social climate surrounding it all. We also discuss in detail the latest legislation out of NY and VA governor's comments regarding late-term abortion and infanticide.

A passionate pro-life activist since childhood, Lauren has worked and volunteered in every corner of the pro-life movement. While studying at Ave Maria University, Lauren honed the writing and communication skills that would ultimately bring her to Human Coalition, where she has served as Human Coalition’s Public Relations Manager since 2016.

Lauren’s current and prior experience includes pro-life policy research, campus activism and development, community organizing, pro-life education, and volunteer work serving pregnant women.

In addition to contributing to Live Action News, Lauren’s work has been published in The New York Times, The Human Life Review, and more.

Lauren and her husband, Jose, have three sons.

Salt and Light - Episode 54: Circumcision, Candlemas, et al

February 7, 2019

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!

After the holiday hangover and into the doldrums of winter, it's all too easy to forget that there is much more to celebrate and "ponder in our hearts." This past Saturday (40 days after Christmas) the Church celebrated Candlemas, during which we recall the Presentation of Jesus in the temple and Blessed Mother Mary's purification. In our modern age, this story can seem in many ways unrelatable, and after spouting off the "who, what, where, and when," we simply move on. However, this story is rich in meaning. Join us for this exegesis!

Salt and Light - Episode 53: Ancient Aliens

January 31, 2019

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' encounter with God at the burning bush, and as you can expect Chuck and Annie give you an exegesis on this event in Exodus.

Also in this episode:

find out why Chuck has a shiner (black eye)
hear all about the details of our trip to Austin Texas for the March for Life
get an update on our friend we call "Bob," who is being threatened and persecuted for building a Catholic church in a country extremely hostile to Christians

Salt and Light - Episode 51: The Chapel Veil

January 17, 2019

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 making a comeback?!

Salt and Light - Episode 50: At the Tridentine Mass

January 10, 2019

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 since 1969. Prior to that, though, the Liturgy was celebrated in the Tridentine form. This timeless form of the Liturgy is still celebrated worldwide, and Chuck and Annie share their experiences and why they have begun to worship regularly in this form.

Salt and Light - Episode 48: Story Time with Chuck and Annie

December 13, 2018

While baking a batch of Lembas bread for her homeschoolers while they discuss The Hobbit, Annie decided to share her joy of this topic with all of you in this episode. Drawing from a plethora of experience in story telling and reading, Chuck and Annie share some of their experiences regarding the importance of “the story”, how we can read them, how we can read them to children (even when we don’t think they have the attention span… they all do), how we can discuss them, and why they are absolutely essential to our human development, survival, and flourishing.

November 29, 2018

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 week with Chuck and Annie.

Salt and Light - Episode 43: All Saints Day All in the Family

November 1, 2018

Happy All Saints Day to our Salt and Light community! We hope that more than a year after starting this little apostolate, we have helped in some small way to point you to Christ and help you grow in love for Him striving for Sainthood!

On this episode, Annie is joined by a special guest (at the request of the Frank Friar) Audrey Horn. It would be quite difficult to find two more different sisters. Annie and Audrey highlight these differences on the show to have some fun but also to demonstrate how in our vast differences we are both pointed in the same direction and mightily striving for Sainthood! How alike or different are you from your siblings? Does it affect your relationship positively or negatively? Do you sanctify each other and help each other on your spiritual journeys?

Salt and Light - Episode 40: What kind of Olive tree are you?

October 11, 2018

The Psalm and the Gospel from the 27th Sunday in Ordinary time were the inspiration for this week's podcast.

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 do with the Gospel and the Christian life.
