Franciscan Father Hilarion Kistner answers these scriptural questions: Do the numbers seven and four have special significance in the Book of Revelation? In Ephesians does St. Paul tell us that once we're saved we cannot lose our salvation? What are the limits to Jesus' promise that God would give us whatever we ask for in his name?

This week Sr. Rose takes a look at moms in today's media--are they as good as they used to be?

John Feister's guest is Franciscan Brother John R. Barker. He is currently pursuing a Doctorate in Biblical Studies at Boston College, and wrote the article "Jesus' Mighty Deeds" in the January 2012 issue of St. Anthony Messenger magazine. Brother John was a segment producer here on ACR some years back, responsible for our “Bible Break” feature.
