    Are You Teaching Your Kids to Pray? (Special Podcast Highlight)

    Play Episode Listen Later Sep 18, 2023 13:13


    Do you pray with your children? You may feel overwhelmed and not sure where to start! Get some helpful tips in this episode of Morning Air. Glen Leverenz and Sarah Tafoya are joined by Kim Morgan, a Catholic wife and mom who is also a licensed independent clinical social worker. Here's a summary of the key points made in the podcast: Starting Early with Mealtime Prayers: The hosts and Kim emphasize the importance of introducing prayer to children from a young age. They suggest that one of the first steps is teaching children to say grace and give thanks before meals. This is seen as a natural and simple way to initiate children into the practice of prayer. Praying Throughout the Day: They discuss the idea of incorporating intermittent prayer throughout the day. They highlight the significance of mealtime prayers, morning and bedtime prayers, and even prayers during daily routines like car rides to school. Kim particularly mentions the importance of modeling and scripting prayers for children. Exploring Prayer's Historical Context: Kim recommends using books, games, or flashcards that provide historical context and stories behind prayers. Understanding the origins and significance of prayers, such as the Fatima Prayer, can help children appreciate their depth and meaning. Creating a Prayerful Environment: They stress that creating the right environment for prayer is crucial. This environment doesn't always have to be formal or quiet. They share personal experiences, like praying the Rosary in the car with children during daily commutes, as an example of how the environment can be adapted to fit a family's lifestyle. Encouraging Conversational Prayer: The conversation also touches on the importance of teaching children to have a running conversation with God throughout the day, much like talking to a friend. This helps build a strong relationship with God and encourages children to pray from the heart. Bedtime Prayers: Bedtime routines are highlighted as a great opportunity for children to open up and pray for what's on their hearts. Children often show empathy and thoughtfulness by praying for others, such as their friends or classmates. Teaching by Example: They encourage parents and grandparents to model prayer and engage in prayerful activities with children. Making prayer a joyful and meaningful part of family life is seen as a beautiful way to nurture a child's faith.

    If you and your spouse are struggling with infertility, you know how difficult of a cross it can be. The pain can be overbearing, and it can feel like a bad dream that won't end. You might wonder why God allows this cross and where to go from here. John Morales speaks with Dr. Joseph and Dr. Marie Meaney about this deeply personal topic. The couple shares their own journey, highlighting the shock and cross they faced when discovering they couldn't conceive naturally. Their story underscores the emotional impact and existential questions that arise when parenthood doesn't unfold as expected. Dr. Marie, drawing from her experience and her book "When Expecting Doesn't Happen: Turning Infertility into a Journey of Hope," reflects on the emotional turmoil they went through. She candidly discusses the lack of resources during their own struggle. Her passion to help others navigate this often-overlooked territory shines through as she emphasizes that the infertility journey, though intensely challenging, can lead to renewal and growth. Dr. Joseph encourages listeners to understand that infertility is a medical challenge and not a form of divine punishment. Instead, he highlights that it can become an opportunity for spiritual renewal, deepening one's faith and trust in God's plan. The Meaney couple stresses the importance of unity between spouses during this time, offering insights into how they coped with differing responses and encouraged open communication. The conversation turns to the Catholic Church's perspective on infertility treatments, particularly in vitro fertilization (IVF). Dr. Joseph explains the Church's stance, noting that IVF, which replaces the marital act and creates embryos outside the womb, is ethically problematic due to its disregard for the dignity of human life and its consequences on individuals and relationships. He contrasts this with alternative approaches like the Creighton method and treatments offered by the Pope Paul VI Institute, emphasizing their success rates and alignment with Catholic principles.

    Play Episode Listen Later Aug 31, 2023 9:50


    Have you been feeling worn out by extreme heat in your area? Has the weather been concerning you? Perhaps the wildfires are making you wonder if climate change is the cause. Chuck Gaidica, a former meteorologist on Detroit television, joins John Morales of Morning Air to give his expert advice on all things weather.  Check out some of his main points. 1. Climate Change vs. Weather Patterns: Chuck cautions against confusing climate change with short-term weather patterns. He explains that the current heat wave could be attributed to a weather pattern, like El Niño, which originates in the Pacific Ocean. 2. Politicized Issue: Chuck notes that the topic of climate change has become highly politicized, making it difficult to discern unbiased information. He highlights that weather events and wildfires are often extrapolated to support specific narratives. 3. Historical Context: Chuck recalls attending a conference on global climate change in the past. He mentions the phrase "extreme extremes," suggesting that if the Earth's climate is changing, there could be more intensified and unusual weather events. 4. Natural Factors: The conversation turns to discussing natural factors that contribute to temperature variations. Chuck explains that high-pressure systems, like the dome of high pressure over the United States, can lead to heatwaves due to compression and heating of descending air. He also mentions the influence of El Niño and volcanic eruptions on global temperatures. 5. Volcanic Eruptions: Chuck references a recent underwater volcanic eruption in Tonga that NASA acknowledged could affect Earth's temperature for several years. He questions why such natural phenomena are often overlooked in favor of focusing solely on human activities. 6. Media Attention: Chuck addresses why certain events, like volcanic eruptions, might not receive mainstream media attention. He suggests that media coverage tends to focus on events with broader impacts or relevance to specific regions. 7. Natural Cycles: Both hosts emphasize the importance of recognizing that natural cycles play a role in climate and weather variations. They urge listeners to consider that today's extreme events may not necessarily indicate long-term global trends.
