Living Faith Living Faith
Producer Judy Zarick talks with John Janaro, author of the book, Never Give Up: My Life and God's Mercy. During this season of Lent John reminds us that we all go through some type of suffering in our lives. This suffering can make us stronger in our love for Jesus or it can paralyze us.  John tells us how he found God's grace in his suffering both physically and emotionally.

Franciscan Father Hilarion Kistner answers these scriptural questions: Were months and years counted the same way in Jesus' time as they are today? What does it mean that the Book of Daniel is called 'apocalyptic'? What is the biblical basis for tithing? What does Jesus mean by the phrase 'the new and everlasting covenant'?

John Feister's guest on today’s “Exploring Our Faith,” is Norbertine Father Alfred McBride. He is a retreat director, frequent radio and TV guest and prolific author. Last year he was honored for his life-long achievement in the field of faith-formation by the National Conference of Catechetical Leaders. Over his career, Father Al has been a pastor, taught in the seminary, and on the high school and college levels, and served as president of the University of Albuquerque. He has a doctorate in Religious Education from Catholic University of America, and has written over 40 books and more than 100 articles on faith-formation topics. His most recent publication is The Challenge of the Cross: Praying the Stations, available in print and audiobook formats from Franciscan Media. We’re happy to have him with us today to talk with John about connecting our sufferings to Christ’s passion and death through the Stations of the Cross.
