Good morning! On today’s show, Matt Swaim and Anna Mitchell welcome pastoral Kevin Prendergast to look at whether New Year’s resolutions “work,” and if there’s a better way to think about them. Other guests include Rita Heikenfeld with ideas for easy meals to bring to the homebound, and Fr. Robert Nixon on the virtue of Justice. Plus news, weather, sports, and a whole lot more…


Come, Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth. 

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.


Recipes from Rita



1 pound bulk Italian sausage, mild or hot
1 small onion, chopped
2 teaspoons/2 cloves garlic, minced
26 oz jar favorite pasta sauce (I like plain Marinara)
1 bag frozen cheese filled ravioli – about 24 oz or so
3-4 cups Italian cheese blend


Heat oven to 350.
Cook sausage, onion and garlic over medium-high heat in skillet until sausage is done. Stir in pasta sauce.
Spray a 9×13 pan. Spread1cup of the sausage mixture into bottom. Arrange half of the ravioli on top, then sprinkle with half Italian cheese. Top with remaining ravioli, sausage mixture and rest of cheese.
Cover with foil and bake 45 to 50 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Remove foil and bake until cheese is melted. Let rest 15 minutes before serving.



Olive oil, enough to film bottom of skillet
1/3 cup diced onion
1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon garlic salt
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup sour cream
10.5 ounce can condensed cream of chicken soup
8 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup milk
28 ounce bag frozen tater tots


Preheat oven to 350-degrees and spray 9″ x 13″ casserole.
Add oil to large skillet, add onions and cook until translucent and a little golden brown.
Add beef and cook until done. Pour everything into large bowl.
Add salt, pepper, garlic salt, sour cream, soup, cheese, and milk. Give it all a good stir.
Pour evenly into casserole.
Top with tater tots.
Bake approximately 45 minutes or until tots are golden brown.

Tip: To get extra crispy tater tots, turn the oven on broil for the last five minutes. You’ll have some delicious golden taters!
