Gus unveils a new segment called Friday with the Fathers, which he'll do every Friday in an effort to show that the things the Church still teaches today were present from the very beginning. One of our most popular segments is the Conversion Corner, where Gus has an in-depth interview with a convert or a revert to the Catholic faith. Quite often, the interview subject states that a determining factor of their recognition of the Catholic Church as the one, true Church of Jesus Christ was reading the writings of the early Church fathers, which include the Didache, much of which is attributed to St. John the Apostle, Athenagoras of Athens, St. Justin Martyr, St. Ignatius of Antioch, Iraenaeus, Tertullian and Origen; all of whom lived in the 1st and 2nd centuries A.D. Their writings are uniquely Catholic and discuss things like mass, the Eucharist, baptism and catechesis. Gus begins by reading the first seven chapters of the Didache.
Gus talks about the closure of the DNC where Fr. James Martin gave the closing prayer in which he offers prayers for those most in need, which included the unborn child in the womb.
And, it's Friday and that means Prayer Time on Seize the Day.
Friday’s with Fathers was amazing. I really loved what you read about st ignatious…. The saint knowing that he was going to die and how he was so ready. The one thing I did not catch and would love to read is the book you mentioned on Jurgens. Would love to continue reading.. Can you plz send me the name of the book… God bless and Thank you.
I found Friday with the Fathers very very interesting and enlightening! I am most interested in learning more! You mentioned a book or two about the Didache, I believe it was by someone with the last name of Jergens? Could I have more information please. I wish I could listen all day on Fridays especially so I would not miss this segment. I will need to catch up on my own. I had never heard of the Didache before and am excited to hear about it!! Thank you Gus!
