Should parents tell their college-bound students, “Enjoy your next four years; they’ll be the best years of your life” ? No! says Frank Hanna to host Doug Keck on this EWTN Bookmark episode. Author of A Graduate’s Guide to Life: Three Things They Didn’t Teach You at College That Could Really Make the Difference, Hanna believes that education’s purpose is to create a fully realized human being who grasps reality, whose goal is to amass an abundance of happiness and blessing, and who goes to work each day with the intention of creating value for his or her employer. This book for young people is a stand-out among those they’ll receive at graduation; its teachings are for all of us. Do yourself a favor – read A Graduate’s Guide to Life before you pass it on; you’ll thank Frank Hanna for his brevity, frankness, and solid advice.
Steve Weidenkopf talks with Doug Keck on EWTN Bookmark about his latest book, The Real Story of Catholic History: Answering Twenty Centuries of Anti-Catholic Myths. Weidenkopf gathered 55 of the most common untruths that we’ve heard over the years from friends, colleagues, and relatives. The Real Story of Catholic History answers these myths, ranging from Catholicism’s pagan origins, to Galileo and the Inquisition, to the Church’s alleged wealth, with the implication, Weidenkopf comments to Doug, that “Catholics should alleviate human suffering by liquidating its assets.” Above all, Doug and Weidenkopf agree, our answers should be full of clarity and charity. A great book to read, and to give, and an insightful EWTN Bookmark interview.

At abortion’s epicenter is the tragic death of a baby…and what of the mother, father, grandparents, friends who counseled for and against this, and even present and future siblings of the child ? Janet Morana, bestselling author, executive director of Priests for Life, and co-host of EWTN’s The Catholic View for Women, presents a sobering, well-documented picture of the lives, besides the child’s, also adversely touched by this unspeakable horror. Even those who are solidly pro-life need to be reminded of, in Teresa Tomeo’s words, “the ferocious fall-out of a so-called ‘women’s right to choose.'” Don’t miss Janet Morana‘s episode on EWTN Bookmark with host Doug Keck, or her Shockwaves: Abortion’s Wider Circle of Victims.
