Salt and Light - Episode 9: Busting the new trend of “Less Fasting More Prayer”

February 15, 2018
Happy Ash Wednesday and St Valentine's Day! With an increasing number of articles, posts, blogs, and videos suggesting that fasting is less important and Lent should just include more prayer, Chuck and Annie challenge this new wave of popular opinion and go back to Scripture. What does Scripture say about fasting, and what should Lent actually look like? Well, interestingly enough, Christ gives us a blueprint!

Salt and Light - Episode 7: Til death do us part

February 8, 2018

For one more week, we are joined by guests on the Salt and Light podcast. Dean Ouellette and his bride, Jessica, join us to talk about Retrouvaille– a lifeline for marriages and a program to help couples heal and renew their hurting marriages.

An excerpt from the Retrouvaile website describes it as follows: “This program is for couples with marital problems that want marriage help. Those who are considering marriage separation and those who are already separated or divorced are encouraged to consider the Retrouvaille Program. There is always hope of reviving your relationship. It is NOT a Retreat, Seminar, Social Gathering, or Religious Conversion Experience. It is NOT Marriage Counseling. It is NOT a Sensitivity Group. It is NOT Group Counseling. It is NOT for Profit.”

So what it is? Tune in to this episode to learn more about the program and how it can be used to strengthen and heal broken marriages so husband and wife can live out the Sacrament of Marriage and grow together in holiness.

Salt and Light - Episode 6: A Pro-Life Call to Action with Lauren Enriquez

January 30, 2018

With adrenaline still pumping from the 45th annual March for Life, Chuck and Annie sit down with Mrs. Lauren Enriquez of HumanCoalition.org. Lauren is a millenial leader of her generation and has devoted her life in full-time service of the Pro-Life cause. She joined us on this episode to share her experiences at the March for Life in Washington DC last week that are never covered on major media outlets, and she opines as to why that is the sad case. She also shared some current legislation on abortion and what organizations are doing on a national and also local, grassroots level to continue the rising tide of pro-life community and its work saving thousands and thousands of babies from abortion every single year. We also briefly discussed the Catholic Church's historical teachings on abortion, and rounded out the discussion with the little-talked-about men's role in the pro-life community.

If you are pregnant and need help, please call (800) 848-LOVE.

Lauren offered to share the following information with our listeners and even provided her contact information for anyone feeling called to serve in the pro-life community, needing pregnancy support, or wanting to learn more about the REAL pro-life message and community.

AbortionExploitsWomen.com (the site for men)

Brian Fisher's book, Abortion: The Ultimate Exploitation of Women, is available for purchase in both hard copy and ebook formats at that site.

Salt and Light - Episode 2: Mary and Joseph, we’ll leave the light on for you!…. or not

January 25, 2018

Join Chuck and Annie for this episode of the Salt and Light podcast, in which they discuss the Gospels for Christmas  (4 in total depending on which Mass you to go!) and dive a little deeper into them. Were St Joseph and Our Blessed Mother just simply turned away from an inn? a hotel? and happened to find a stable? or is there more to the story?

Tune in for this episode where we unpack a little bit of the Greek translation of the Gospels and provide a historical and cultural backdrop as well, which hopefully will illuminate these two monumental and yet most humble figures in the Bible, who through their assent to the will of the Father, helped bring the Son of God into the world.

Bible references during this episode:

Christmas Eve Vigil- Mt1:1-25

Midnight Mass- Lk2:1-14

Christmas Day Early morning- Lk2:15-20

Christmas Day during the day- Jn1:1-18

Salt and Light - Episode 1: Did Christmas come from a Pagan Holiday?

January 25, 2018

Join Chuck and Annie in this Episode of the Salt and Light podcast in which they address the all-too-common accusation that rears its ugly head this time of year, namely “Christians took a pagan holiday and turned it into Christmas” or, more pointedly, “Christmas is a pagan holiday”.

In order to assess this accusation and see where the evidence falls, you gotta dig deep into history, theology, and one’s own self. We felt up to the challenge!

In this episode, we cover the probable pagan gods who are subject of the accusation, who they were, when they were celebrated, and who celebrated them. Then we look into historical evidence of Christian celebrations and point to very specific documents and explain their origin and significance.

Then, we look to the stars! Atronomers have long claimed that there is no way Jesus could have been born in December based on the stars. We look into this claim and address some points of interest.

Then, we look to Luke chapter 1, from which some claim to know Jesus’ birth by the priestly lot of Zechariah.

Finally, we look at the Biblical text itself to see if it can give us any clues to understand when Christ broke into our humanity in the Incarnation aka Christmas! Learn about ancient Jewish cultures, customs, and ways to measure time in hours and days.
