The Battle for Family: Bishop Carl Kemme


It’s the solemnity of St. Joseph (March 19th), and we’re talking about the Battle for Families with Bishop Carl Kemme of the Diocese of Wichita. Even before Pope Francis did it for the whole Church, Bishop Kemme declared a Year of St. Joseph for the Diocese of Wichita to help guide us as a Church, clergy, and especially as fathers and families. He joins us to talk about this, the hope that he sees for families, and why treating Sundays as sacred is such a game-changer.

Weekly Challenge: Make this upcoming Lord’s Day holy.

Prayer to St. Joseph, Terror of Demons:

Saint Joseph, Terror of Demons, cast your solemn gaze upon the devil and all his minions, and protect us with your mighty staff. You fled through the night to avoid the devil’s wicked designs; now with the power of God, smite the demons as they flee from you! Grant special protection, we pray, for children, fathers, families, for priests and religious and the dying. By God’s grace, no demon dares approach while you are near, so we beg of you, always be near to us! Amen.
