  • 17:15 - Deuteronomy 22:5 talks about how men that dress in women’s clothes are condemned and looked at in a negative manner. Is that talking about transgenderism, and can that be applied today?
  • 21:26 - With the young adult peer group I have, how do I speak the truth to my friends about chastity and gender without being insensitive and hurting their feelings?
  • 31:30 - How do you know if your child is going through a transition without you knowing about it?
  • 37:11 - We are grandparents of a 15-year-old girl that we’ve heard is thinking about transitioning. She’s threatening to commit suicide if everyone doesn’t support her. How can we deal with and help this situation?
  • 45:10 - How can we as Catholics provide outreach to people that are dealing with this gender situation and do so in a way that is non-judgmental?
  • 52:26 - I saw a study that said transgender identity can be linked to brain activity. Is this true?

Catholic Answers Live - Accompanying Those with Same Sex Attraction

January 25, 2022
  • 15:12 - My 27-year-old daughter has come out. If God makes you who you are and being gay is a sin, then how can a child be born gay? How am I supposed to as a mom accept her lifestyle if it’s a sin to be gay?
  • 24:37 - In the bible, God says marriage is between a man and woman and to cut off people that aren’t doing what’s right. In that context, how do we deal with the difficult relationships in which we know people that are same sex attracted?
  • 33:34 - If the bible says it’s not right to be a homosexual, like in Sodom and Gomorrah, then why do some religions not take this into account?
  • 46:32 - I’m 42 and grown up Catholic my entire life. I’m a gay man. We were always told that homosexuality is wrong but because I was being told that, I found myself hating myself. When I went to a private Methodist college, I branched out and spoke to many different priests. Isn’t it worse to lie to yourself?

Simply Holy - Imitating St. Paul

Simply Holy - Imitating St. Paul

January 25, 2022

Paul (Saul) believed he was doing the right thing by rounding up Christians and executing them out on the streets. They were blasphemers and idolaters. They dishonored God and needed to be destroyed. Then one day Jesus appeared and literally knocked him off his high horse, blinding him and rendering him powerless. Paul had two questions for this Being who spoke to him: “Who are you, Sir?” and then, finally, “What shall I do, Sir?” These two questions should be the guidelines for our lives in imitation of St. Paul.

A Seeking Heart - Catholic Wedding Planner

In this episode, Allison chats with the dynamic duo of Mary Beth Giltner and Rebecca W. Martin, creators of The Catholic Wedding Planner, available now from Our Sunday Visitor.
 
What a wonderful rush of memories when I opened my examination copy in the mail. Recalling the details from the engagement to invitations, to dress selection, reception (oh the sitting arrangement), to the dreaded invitations. However, THIS planner is so much more with inspiring reflections, the beauty of the Sacrament, and so much more!
 
A thoroughly engaging conversation about God's plans (and ours, of course—which don't always necessarily jive. Just as these two amazing ladies whose own weddings needed to pivot thanks to covid).
