Catholic Connection – Sept 16, 2021

Fr. Carter Griffin speaks about his new book, “Cross-Examined: Catholic Responses to the World’s Questions.” CNA’s Kelsey Wicks talks about an Afghan Christian’s plea for their help. [Only one hour of CC this week due to our pledge drive.]


Segment 1 – Intro and News

Segment 2 & 3 – Cross-Examined: Catholic Responses to the World’s Questions
“While social norms and political movements are rapidly changing, the truth of the Catholic faith stands firm. In Cross-Examined: Catholic Responses to the World’s Questions, readers are equipped to address even the most sensitive topics, from the existence of God to the existence of hell, from women’s ordination to Marian devotion, from assisted suicide to transgenderism.”

Fr. Carter Griffin is a priest of the Archdiocese of Washington. A graduate of Princeton University and a former line officer in the United States Navy, he obtained his doctorate in theology from the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome. After serving at St. Peter’s parish on Capitol Hill, in 2011 he was assigned to the newly-established St. John Paul II Seminary in Washington, D.C., where he now serves as rector.

Segment 4 – An Afghan Christian’s plea: “You are my last hope”
“Last month, as Americans and Afghans scrambled to find a way to escape Afghanistan, a seemingly innocuous email appeared in CNA’s inbox. Being a news agency, we get a lot of mail, and this email might have slipped through the cracks, if it hadn’t caught the attention of Kelsey Wicks, Catholic News Agency’s operations manager. The message turned out to be a desperate plea for help.”
