"I met Gavriella last Fall when I had the privilege of touring the Union Station exhibit: Auschwitz: Not Long Ago, Not Far Away, and then participating in a conversation with other KC area clergy about the problem of antisemitism.  Sadly, in January we were all reminded of the reality of how Jew’s don’t feel safe to go to worship, when a gunman took hostages at the Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville Texas.  So, I invited Gavriella to come help us better understand the growing problem of antisemitism and what we as Catholics can do."  Deacon Bill Scholl

"Living Waters provides a thoughtful and safe place to look at the ways we’ve become ensnared. Through weekly times of worship, teaching and small group prayer, our program leaders walk with participants in their struggle so they can live in freedom and truth. We pray for God’s healing to restore broken areas of life so that people can “love well” as God intended.

Living Waters is a 20 week closed group for men and women seeking healing in their lives. It is an intensive and unique small group. Ultimately, we learn how to press into Jesus more deeply, allowing Him to meet our needs and transform us for His Kingdom purposes. With groups all over the world, and with over thirty years of ministering God’s healing love, the Living Waters program is a proven path of healing."

Archbishop Naumann interviews Mary Dudro, translator of Bernadette Chovelon’s Salt and Light: The Spiritual Journey of Élisabeth and Félix Leseur.

This true story explores the tender relationship between an unbelieving husband and a faithful wife who trusts God completely is a compelling witness to the transformative power of love.

Élisabeth and Félix Leseur began their life together in France as a carefree young couple with a bright future ahead of them. They were beautifully and compatibly matched, except for one major difference—Élisabeth was a devout Catholic, and Félix was a firmly decided atheist. As they faced the seasons of life together, their relationship was tested, and both were called to deep spiritual transformation.

Out of love for her husband, Élisabeth spent her life offering her many sufferings for the sake of his conversion. After her death, and in response to the profound love he encountered in her writings, Félix converted and offered the rest of his life to God as a Dominican priest.

This biography is a lovely narrative of their marriage and the transformative power of God's love and grace in their lives. It also presents a charming picture of upper-middle-class French society at the turn of the last century. The cause for the canonization of Élisabeth Leseur has been opened by the Catholic Church.

Archbishop Naumann dialogues with Chuck Weber, executive director of the Kansas Catholic Conference about the Value Them Both Amendment, which returns to voters the right to pass reasonable regulations to abortion.  This conversation was recorded on March 16th when the coronavirus social distancing orders were going into effect.

They discuss how the Kansas Supreme court through its Hodes v. Schmidt decision has unleashed limitless abortion upon the state and so the only recourse Kansans have is to pass an amendment to the state constitution. The  Value Them Both amendment is not a ban, but simply ensures the people can place basic regulations to protect both mothers and babies.

Naumann dialogues with Chuck Weber of the Kansas Catholic Conference and Deb Niesen of the Pro-Life office about restoring the rights of Kansans to pass common-sense, pro-life laws by overturning the Kansas Supreme Court's recent ruling that the there is an inherent "right" to abortion in the Kansas Constitution.

What Happened? 

On April 26, 2019, the Kansas Supreme Court took power from Kansas voters and found—created—a nearly unlimited “right to abortion” in our 1859 State Constitution. Prior to this ruling, through widely supported limitations, our state’s abortion rates had been reduced by 43 percent since 1999 and partial-birth abortions had been completely banned. Essentially, women and their preborn babies have now been abandoned to an unregulated abortion industry.

Because of the Kansas Supreme Court’s April 26, 2019, ruling, existing bans on partial-birth and taxpayer-funded abortions are now in danger of being rendered unenforceable. Furthermore, the ruling allows violent live dismemberment abortions to continue and threatens these lifesaving limits:

 

  • Parental consent for minors seeking abortion
  • Informed consent, alerting women to potential health risks
  • 24-hour waiting period
  • Abortion clinic sanitation and safety standards

How Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the man known in the 1970s as “America's Abortion King", helped NARAL launch the national campaign for abortion-on-demand by deceiving the Courts and Americans and undermining the Church, and after his Saul-to-Paul conversion, became a staunch defender of life!
