On this episode of Catholic Forum, after a news update from The Dialog, we talk with author, Joe McGivney about his book, "YOU'RE A MIRACLE!: My Story of Alcoholism, Miraculous Healing, and God's Infinite Power and Love." Joe McGivney is an active member of the Knights of Columbus, an organization that was founded by his distant relative, Father Michael McGivney. So when Joe became desperately ill in 2020, it is only logical that one of his beloved relatives pray for Blessed Michael McGivney’s intersession. His book is a thrilling story that follows Joe from the depths of derangement to the heights of true and lasting joy, a joy that is open to all. Listen to Catholic Forum each week on Apple, Spotify, iHeartRadio and Amazon Music podcasts or on Saturday afternoons at 1:30 on Relevant Radio 640. Catholic Forum is a production of the Diocese of Wilmington's Office of Communications.

On this episode of Catholic Forum, after a news update from The Dialog, we will talk to Craig and Judy Bickel about the Retrouvaille program that has helped tens of thousands of couples save their troubled marriages. The Bickels not only lead Retrouvaille weekends, but they can attest to the effectiveness of the program since they went through it when they were on the verge of divorce and it saved their marriage.
