Segment #3 – Wildcard – Chris
- Cristina, with Holy week just beginning, we’ve finally reached the culmination of this Lenten season. While we all love Easter it seems like there are some people who get really “in” to Easter and others who get really “in” to Christmas. So… which is it for you, Easter or Christmas?
- In his general audience on April 13, Pope Benedict XVI wrapped up his series of talks on the Saints and Doctors of the Church said, “most people, aware of their limits and weaknesses, think it wouldn’t be possible to be a saint.” He called us to look, not only to the canonized Saints, but also those living out the faith in our daily lives and performing heroics acts of faith in the everyday. Jason, what Saints have had a particular impact on your journey of faith?
- This is from Brian Burch over at CatholicVote.org… A Seattle 3rd grade class will be treated to an Easter Egg hunt as an award for a week long service project. The thing is… the school administration wouldn’t let them be called Easter eggs and insisted instead that they be called “Spring Spheres.” Cristina, what is most absurd about this story… the rampant political correctness, or the fact that the school administration incorrectly identified egg-shapes (which are called ovoids in geometric terms) as spheres?
- In the last segment, Cristina told us about the first annual blogger conference hosted by the Vatican… Jason, true or false, if you got an invitation, you would sell almost everything you own on Craigslist to get to Rome for the conference?
