Steve Skojec on Restoring the Faith Media

Mike and Joe over at the (relatively new) apostolate called Restoring the Faith Media (check out their YouTube channel right here) interviewed me a couple weeks ago for their show, Full Disclosure, which just launched this week. So far, they’ve also got an interview with Michael Warren Davis, editor of Crisis Magazine, up on the channel, and I know there are more coming soon.

As far as I know, they plan to continue interviewing Catholic influencers and media figures for the show, and it’s an interesting format. They’re also developing other lines of programming — they’ve got a series called “Fathers and Doctors,” another called “Living the Faith,” and a third that is dedicated to teaching various prayers. Overall, I think Restoring the Faith looks like a very promising apostolate with good production values and a lot of content in the pipeline, and I enjoyed my conversation with the hosts. I encourage you to check it out and consider adding RTF to your list of Catholic media subscriptions.

Are millennial Christians really killing evangelization?

Washington D.C., Dec 23, 2019 / 03:06 pm (CNA).- Millennials are notoriously blamed for being killers of previously-thought-necessary industries and activities: Applebees. Napkins. Golf. Mayonnaise. Lunch. And so on.

For the ever-shrinking number of millennials who are practicing Christians, could evangelization be on the chopping block next?

Data released this year from the Barna group, which researches the intersection of faith and culture, shows that of millennials practicing their Christian faith, almost half – 47 percent – believe it is at least somewhat wrong to “share one’s personal beliefs with someone of a different faith in hopes that they will one day share the same faith.” This is significantly higher than the number of Gen X-ers (27 percent), and Boomers (19 percent), who said the same.

U.S. bishops praise rule publicizing abortion ‘surcharge’ in health plan exchanges

Washington D.C., Dec 23, 2019 / 03:00 pm (CNA).- The U.S. bishops have welcomed changes to the way abortion coverage is billed in some federally-funded health plan exchanges, saying the changes will allow Americans to choose health care plans consistent with their views.

Those who purchase health plans “have a right to know if they are paying for elective abortion,” said Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann of Kansas City in Kansas, chairman of the Committee on Pro-Life Activities for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

“While the Affordable Care Act still allows government-subsidized plans to cover abortion, at least with this rule, Americans can now see and try to avoid complicity by choosing plans consistent with their consciences,” he said Dec. 23.
