New Episode of Word for Word: Saying is Believing

December 30, 2010
As a proud mom, I would like to say with pride and excitement that my not-quite-two-year-old son can read. When we pull out his favourite books, he happily finishes the sentences for us, correctly filling in the last one or two words. The truth is, of course, that he’s not reading but spouting off the words and lines he has memorized given the high frequency with which we read these favourite books.
Maybe this is an experience you can relate to… not that you have lines from books memorized but the ways we can quickly recite words very familiar to us without giving them the meaning or attention they deserve. For example? Reciting the Apostles Creed during Mass. We know the words; we say them quite quickly; but do we stop to ponder what they really mean?
This week on Word for Word, we’re encouraged to do just that. Msgr. Peter Vaghi joins us to talk about his book, The Faith We Profess: A Catholic Guide to the Apostles Creed, and to help us slow down and make this statement of our beliefs with great conviction. We also meet Josephine Lombardi, author of On Earth as it is in Heaven, who walks us through the petitions of the Lord’s Prayer. Join us on December 24th at 9pm ET and say, “I believe.”
