My EWTN Live Show on the Papacy now on YouTube

by Steve Ray on August 16, 2019

On August 14, I was in Birmingham Alabama to do the EWTN Live show with Fr. Mitch Pacwa. He’s a classy guy, by the way, and I really enjoyed my time with him again. He’s a hunter and outdoorsman and a pleasure to be with — lots of great stories. (Courtesy of EWTN Global Catholic Network).

Wednesday Evening on EWTN Live with Fr. Mitch Pacwa

by Steve Ray on August 13, 2019

EWTNLiveEWTN Live wrote to me a while ago asking if I’d come on the live show with Fr. Mitch this Wednesday, August 14 at 8 PM Eastern. I said, “Yes.”

The topic will be my new book “The Papacy: What the Pope Does and Why It Matters.” This is a very pertinent book for our times which I co-wrote with my good friend Deacon Dennis Walters.

The show will be re-aired Thursday at 1:00 AM, Thursday at 9:00 AM and Sunday at 4:00 AM. Hope you can join us!

I will also be recording “Bookmarks” with Doug Keck for a later showing.

Here is a ten-year-old picture of another time I was on the show with Fr. Mitch just after finishing one of our Footprints documentaries. And a picture from the show tonight (added after we finished the live show.)IMG_8342

Based on my talk “Swimming Upstream: Living a Catholic Life in a Pagan World,” Steve and Fr. Robert McTeigue, SJ discussed how paganism is coming back in a big way in the Western World. Christianity is being abandoned and alternative “spiritualities” are filling the void.

It was a lively discussion about what paganism is, why the West is enticed by it and how we as Christians need to respond. You can listen to the whole show at the audio link below. Below that are resources Fr. McTeigue put up to supplement the show.

Epiphany? So What?

January 6, 2019

 What is Epiphany anyway? And why should I care? The Feast of the Epiphany – the Magi, the Baptism of Jesus and the Miracle of Cana all combined – is really quite fascinating.

My “Debate-Discussion” on Drew Mariani with a Protestant: “What is the Church?”

January 17, 2018

Relevant Radio archives state, “What do you say to someone who says the Catholic Church is not the one true Church? Steve Ray provides clarity. Giovanni, a Protestant, calls in and says that he doesn’t think his denomination is wrong.” I certainly love good Christians who choose to be disciples of Jesus Christ. I am happy to […]
