‘Repent & Submit’

A smackdown between Mother Theresa and Pope John Paul II?

A debate on which celebrity’s conversion would most benefit the Catholic church?

A humorous discussion series on CatholicTV?

Consider this a call to Repent & Submit: a new half-hour hosted by social media stars Tommy Tighe (aka The Catholic Hipster) and Steve the Missionary (aka Steven Lewis).

Alas, someone up there decided that Repent & Submit will premiere this coming Tuesday, October 2, at 2 am ET!  If you like to sleep at night, no problem: the series will settle into a regular 8 pm weekly timeslot starting on Wednesday.

Each episode promises to pit saints against each other (Peter vs. Paul in the premiere), spotlight a favorite bishop, and look at a favorite online destination (NerdyCatholicTees.com, for example). The hosts will also probe such issues as the type of beer that will make you most authentically Catholic and which celebrity’s conversion would most benefit the Church.

Five episodes are scheduled through Halloween night, when the show’s title will be “Fasting is So Much Easier When I Eat Lunch.”

You can stream Repent & Submit and the entire Catholic TV schedule at CatholicTVLive.com, on AppleTV and Roku, or over Android and iOS apps.
