Callers choose the topics during Open Forum, peppering our guests with questions on every aspect of Catholic life and faith, the moral life, and even philosophical topics that touch on general religious belief.  Questions Covered: 4:04 - Why are we focusing on the Eucharist and Reconciliation in second grade, but then wait so long to give them Confirmation? Shouldn’t the sacraments be taught every year so that they understand what they are receiving when they are older?  13:46 - Can a person who is incoherent receive the sacrament of the sick?  16:15 - Why don’t Catholics dance as a form of worship?  30:29 - If the orthodox and Catholic Church’s both have valid sacraments, can I go to confession to my orthodox priest friend?  33:33 - What is Catholic understanding of what happens to babies who die before they can be baptized?  38:13 - What makes a sacramental marriage?   43:50 - I’m a Catholic school teacher and one of my students is saying that there is a patron saint of lesbians. My principal is backing this up. How can I redirect them toward orthodoxy?
