Our very special guest this evening on the Busted Halo Show is two-time Academy Award winning actor/director, Kevin Costner.  Even though he just turned 60, he hasn’t slowed down—as evidenced by the fact that he is starring in two movies opening the next couple of weeks.  He’s here today to talk about the first, a film he also produced, called Black or White.  It’s the story of a custody battle over a young bi-racial girl. Her parents are out of the picture, but her grandparents are played by Oscar winners Octavia Spencer from “The Help” and Kevin Costner.   That’s the movie“Black or White,”  and we’re honored to have its producer and star with us… welcome to the Busted Halo Show, Kevin

Should we have female altar servers? It may seem like an odd question to some, but it is very real and serious to some, as well. The question has been put back in the news recently when the archbishop of San Francisco upheld a decision by a local priest to not allow altar girls at his masses. What do you think? Listen to Father Dave’s take here.

Just this past May, Pope Francis asked: “Imagine if a Martian showed up, all big ears and big nose like a child’s drawing, and he asked to be baptized. How would you react?” Hmmm. Can’t say I had thought of that, Holy Father. But our guest has!
