On this episode of Catholic Forum, after a brief introduction, the Gospel for the Solemnity of Christ the King, and a cut from the Catholic Treasures CD, Forum host, Bob Krebs, will talk to Dr. Christopher Blum, editor of the book, "Waiting for Christ: Meditations for Advent and Christmas" by newly-canonized Saint John Henry Newman, one of the most beloved and well-known preachers of his time. Originally an Anglican priest, Newman converted to Catholicism and became a Catholic priest and cardinal. Known for his beautiful prose and exultant preaching, Newman has long been a source of inspiration for those in the Church. In this new and compact compilation of his sermons, you're invited to journey with St. John Henry Newman through Advent into Christmas and Epiphany, meditating on the coming of Christ and the Christian life.
Also today, Father Rich Jasper will tell us about Modern Day Witness, Military Chaplain, Father Tim Vakoc.
