Convo with Kyle:
The Church is honoring a few especially well-known saints this week, and on this episode, Bishop talks about the lives of Saint Dominic (feast day: August 8), Saint Lawrence (Feast Day: August 10), and Saint Clare (Feast day: 11).

Then it’s on to the Gospel reading for today which tells the story of a Canaanite woman pleading with Jesus to heal her daughter. Bishop reflects upon the woman’s humility and great faith.

Listener Questions:
28:53 – I thoroughly enjoy listening about the history of the Catholic Church in the United States, I would like to know if there are any books available that contain the history, as Bishop explained on the July 4 episode that I could buy or read?
31:07 – A Protestant friend insisted recently that Jesus said a marriage was dissolved when one of the partners committed adultery, my research took me to the King James Bible, Matthew 19, and in order to find such a passage, however, the New American Bible doesn’t say this. Instead, it says “unless the marriage is unlawful…”, could you please explain this?
34:37 – What is the purpose of a Spiritual Director? Should Everyone have one?
36:55 – If I have a rosary that has not yet been blessed, are my prayers as efficacious if it prayed with the same devotion using a blessed rosary?
38:37 – What process is Mother Angelica in for Sainthood? Do you think that she will be able to become a Saint someday? Are there any known miracles associated with her?
39:34 – Is it consistent with Catholic teaching to believe that life exists on other planets? and that aliens have visited ours?
41:51 – Do you have any fears or phobias?
