Producer Judy Zarick talks with Michael Nolte about his very close brush with death and how his life was changed forever. Michael's faith was tested in a way most of us never have to experience. He relates how his parish community, his family and friends and even total strangers prayed for his recovery throughout his long ordeal.

Franciscan Father Hilarion Kistner answers these scriptural questions: What does it mean when Jesus compares the kingdom of heaven to a mustard seed? Why does Jesus punish a herd of swine by sending demons into them? Why would Christ refer to himself as a stumbling block? Why does God test Abraham by telling him to kill his own son?

Exploring Our Faith Exploring Our Faith
Here on ACR during this Easter season, we’re taking a closer look at the words of the Nicene Creed, one of two ancient statements of faith used at Mass. We’ve invited a special season-long guest to “Exploring Our Faith” with John Feister to help us. He is award-winning author and speaker, Mark P. Shea. His one-minute presentations, “Words of Encouragement,” on various Catholic faith issues, are heard on Catholic radio stations nationally. Mr. Shea is the author of numerous books on Catholic apologetics, most recently The Work of Mercy: Being the Hands and Heart of Christ, published in 2011 by Franciscan Media. Today, he and John explore the meaning of the life to come.
