Jennifer Fulwiler Show: Can you bring your faith to work?

7 Feb

the-catholic-channel-logoNEW YORK (Feb. 7, 2017)–Legatus magazine editor-in-chief Patrick Novecosky was a guest on The Jennifer Fulwiler Show this afternoon on Sirius XM’s The Catholic Channel. Fulwiler asked Novecosky about the challenges about sharing one’s faith in the workplace. In a post-Christian culture, there is a debate about the best way to live between those who have a daily walk with Christ and those who live a secular life, he said.

They discussed how business owners and other leaders can live their faith at work — and also how regular workers can be more overt about their faith at the office. Novecosky talked about praying for those we work with and waiting for an opportunity to share our faith as St. Peter wrote: “Always be ready to give a reason for our hope.” CLICK HERE to listen to the entire interview (17 minutes).

The general and the cardinal: Separated at birth?

18 Nov

AVE MARIA, Florida (November 18, 2016) — In scanning the news this morning, I noticed that President-elect Donald Trump has asked Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Army, Retired), 57, to be his national security adviser. I also took note that Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich, 67, will receive his red hat from Pope Francis this weekend. It’s a monumental weekend for both men.

And I couldn’t help but notice that from a certain angle they look very much alike. A Google search for them pulled up zero mentions that they are brothers or perhaps twins separated at birth. The cardinal-elect should be flattered. He’s a full decade older than the general. Further, no one else has pointed out the striking similarity. Your thoughts?
