Dec. 22, 2014 show

Claire Halbur, a parishioner at the Cathedral of St. Raymond in Joliet, joins Bob to talk about her experience on Lifetime channel's "The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns." The reality show followed Claire and four other young women on their journey of discernment as they visited three convents across the country. Then, Elizabeth Fenner, editor-in-chief of Chicago Magazine, talks about the just-published cover story she wrote on the decreasing number of Catholics in the Archdiocese of Chicago. To close out the show, Bob talks about the upcoming March for Life Chicago on Jan. 18 in downtown Chicago. Emily Zender, march chairwoman and executive director of Illinois Right to Life, tells about the great line-up of speakers, including Archbishop Blase Cupich and pro-life activist Abby Johnson. Mary Hallan Fio-Rito of the Archdiocese of Chicago discusses an Aid for Women brunch that will be held the morning of the march featuring Cardinal George as the key speaker and Father Rocky of Relevant Radio as the celebrant of Mass.
