Today’s Guest Dr. Carrie Gress, Author of The Marian Option – Dr. Gress makes her second appearance on the Mike Church Show on the eve of The Marian Option’s release. This Saturday marks the 100 year anniversary of the start of the Fatima apparitions that would continue until the Miracle of The Sun on 13 October. Dr. Gress’s message for a world reeling in sin ands chaos is both bold and simple. “The Marian Option is, at its root, the message of Fatima. While the savvy, erudite, and proud might scoff at it, the underlying message of Fatima – and the solution to all of our civilizational ills – is very simple: Pray the Rosary.” Listen to Mike Church’s previous interview with Carrie Gress here.
