Catholic Answers Live - Made in the Image and Likeness of God

November 12, 2019

Where does the idea that we are made it God’s image and likeness come from?

Questions Covered:

  • 11:50 - I have some cuts on my wrists from a serious depression that I went through. Am I forgiven for hurting myself like that? Am I still in the image of God? 
  • 19:15 - How can we understand original sin and being made in the image and likeness of God? 
  • 33:42 - If we are made in the image of God, why are we so prone to sin?  
  • 43:20 - I think tattoos can be a way to beautify the body. How is it an evil or different from piercing the ears?

  • 52:04 - How did your father’s pro-life view affect you?
Catholic Answers Live - Year of Matthew

Catholic Answers Live - Year of Matthew

November 12, 2019

This upcoming liturgical year features Matthew’s gospel in the Sunday readings. Why Matthew is so important for us today?

Questions Covered:

  • 31:22 - My pastor said that Jesus was being sarcastic when he told the story of the shepherd leaving the 99 to find the one lost sheep. Is this a new theory? 
  • 33:33 - Some skeptics say that Jesus never claimed to be God in the book of Matthew. How can I respond? 
  • 40:56 - What does it mean when Jesus was on the Cross and he said, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” Is Jesus quoting the Psalms and showing solidarity to the Jewish people? 
  • 46:48 - Why does Jesus speak in parables so much about separating the sheep from the goats?

Clumsy Theosis - Imaginative Prayer vs. Quiet Prayer

Clumsy Theosis - Imaginative Prayer vs. Quiet Prayer

November 11, 2019

God reaches out to us in many creative ways including our imaginations and through the deep quiet stillness of our minds. Richaél Lucero describes two prayer methods that allow us to respond to God through these means. Listen in to learn how easily you can make these fruitful methods a part of your prayer life. SHOW NOTES: —Catechism reference: CCC 2567 God calls man first. Man may forget his Creator or hide far from his face; he may run after idols or accuse the deity of having abandoned him; yet the living and true God tirelessly calls each person to that mysterious encounter known as prayer. In prayer, the faithful God's initiative of love always comes first; our own first step is always a response. —Books mentioned: —Spiritual Exercises by St. Ignatius of Loyola: https://www.amazon.com/Spiritual-Exercises-Saint-Ignatius-Profound/dp/0385024363 —The Way of Perfection by St. Teresa of Avila: https://www.amazon.com/Way-Perfection-Image-Classics/dp/0385065396 —Prayers mentioned: —The Jesus Prayer SOCIAL MEDIA: Instagram— https://www.instagram.com/clumsytheosis/ Twitter— https://twitter.com/ClumsyTheosis Facebook— https://www.facebook.com/clumsytheosis VISIT MY WEBSITE: http://www.clumsytheosis.net

Bible Study Evangelista - Catholic TV Series: Episode 5 - Elijah: Digging Out of Depression

Bible Study Evangelista - Catholic TV Series: Episode 5 - Elijah: Digging Out of Depression

November 11, 2019

Elijah was one of God’s two greatest prophets, and he dealt with extended depression over what God was not doing in his life and ministry. He experienced fear, suicidal tendencies, excessive tiredness, and feelings of rejection for over two months, well past the time modern doctors would diagnose clinical depression. Elijah was angry at God.

In Romans 11:2-5, St. Paul uses Elijah as an example of how God considers our complaints against the people we serve, and our dejection when we think He’s not busy “doing something.” Find out how God helped Elijah dig out of depression.

5 Learnings for Midlife: 1 - We have to get lost in order to find ourselves - 11/11/19

5 Learnings for Midlife: 1 - We have to get lost in order to find ourselves - 11/11/19

November 11, 2019

Today we're starting a series of five podcasts on my "midlife learnings." The first one we take up today is about getting lost. These middle years can leave us feeling lost at times as we transition from who we have been to who we are to become.... Jeannette de Beauvoir and I take up this conversation of why it is important to get lost sometimes. "Being lost is challenging. Dante wrote about his traveler finding himself 'in dark woods, the right way lost' when he descended into the Inferno, and that’s what it can feel like, being in dark woods. You don’t know which way to take to get out. You don’t know what tomorrow will look like. You wish you had what you lost, even if it wasn’t good for you. You might even feel like God has abandoned you. But that’s when he’s closest. That’s when he’s saying, 'Take my hand. Trust me. I love you. I’ll show you the way out.' "

The Frank Friar - Episode 209: Purification: It Is More Than a No

The Frank Friar - Episode 209: Purification: It Is More Than a No

November 11, 2019

November is a month when the Church calls us to think about death. One of the practices during this month is praying for the dead. From the practice many conversations around the topic of purgatory arise. The term purgatory has in it the term and idea of purification. Today, I speak about that concept of purification and some good ways to think about it.

#principleoftheday: Emotional Intelligence - EQ vs. Intuition

#principleoftheday: Emotional Intelligence - EQ vs. Intuition

November 11, 2019

#principleoftheday: #EmotionalIntelligence vs. #intuition.

Am I the accuser taking on God’s role, or am I looking at the situation circumspectly?

Am I focused on what I want over caring for people or focused on caring for people and as a result receiving what I want?

Am I focused on this earth and what I gain here, or the next?

Am I projecting what I want to see to justify my poor actions (demanding grace for me) while expecting to impose harsh punishment upon those committing similar acts (demanding perfection towards me)?

Those needing power will often demand others to agree with them and will gain those that do.

Someone with friends who are willing to stand up to them, rather than conform to their viewpoint to justify their wrongdoings as good, has real friends.

The latter creates and befriends only sycophants.

Those who prefer sweet lies will not be thankful for harsh truths, and only regard people as kind or friendly, unless they aren’t willing to confront them and allow them to commit harm to anyone they rationalize as suitable.

Those who regard their harsh truths as accurate without ever doubting their accuracy are blind to how they hurt themselves and others.
