Clumsy Theosis - Repost - The Immaculate Conception

December 4, 2020

Listen as Richaél Lucero covers this along with how the celebration of the Immaculate Conception fits perfectly within the Advent season. SHOW NOTES: —Episodes mentioned: -Doctrines and Dogmas: What’s the big deal? https://clumsytheosis.net/2019/05/17/dogma-and-doctrine-whats-the-big-deal/ —Catechism references: -CCC 491 Pope Pius IX proclaimed: The most Blessed Virgin Mary was, from the first moment of her conception, by a singular grace and privilege of almighty God and by virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, Savior of the human race, preserved immune from all stain of original sin. - CCC 494 St. Irenaeus saind, “Being obedient she became the cause of salvation for herself and for the whole human race." Hence not a few of the early Fathers gladly assert. . .: "The knot of Eve's disobedience was untied by Mary's obedience: what the virgin Eve bound through her disbelief, Mary loosened by her faith." Comparing her with Eve, they call Mary "the Mother of the living" and frequently claim: "Death through Eve, life through Mary.” —Scripture references: -Hail Mary, Full of grace.

Clumsy Theosis - The Letters of St. Ignatius of Antioch: Link Between the Apostles and the Church Fathers

They paint a vivid picture of the Catholic Church after the time of the Apostles. Listen as Richaél Lucero points out some of her favorite parts in these need-to-read Catholic letters.

-“...worthy of God, worthy of honour, worthy of the highest happiness, worthy of praise, worthy of obtaining her every desire, worthy of being deemed holy, and which presides over love.
... you who are filled inseparably with the grace of God, and you who are purified from every foreign stain, I wish abundance of happiness in Jesus Christ our God.” -Letter of St. Ignatius to the Romans

-”I exhort you to do all things with a divine harmony, the bishop is to preside in the place of God, while the presbyters are to function as the council of the Apostles, and the deacons are entrusted with the ministry of Jesus Christ.” Letter of St. Ignatius to the Magnesians

-”So, then, be on your guard against such people! And this you will do if you are not puffed up and also if you cling inseparably to Jesus Christ our God, to the bishop, and to the precepts of the Apostles.” Letter of St. Ignatius to the Trallians

-”Give heed to the bishop, that God also may give heed to you. Labour together; strive together; run together; suffer together; rest together and rise together. You are stewards in God’s house, members of His household and His servants.
Please Him under whom you fight, from Whom you receive your wages. Let none of you be found a deserter. Let your baptism be your armour; your faith be your helmet; your love be your spear; your patience as a complete panoply. ...
To sum up: be long-suffering towards one another and gentle, as God is with you.” -Letter of St. Ignatius to St. Polycarp

Clumsy Theosis - Are You an Intentional Disciple?

July 3, 2020

An intentional disciple follows Jesus by mimicking what he did during his life. What exactly does that entail? Listen in to learn.

June 6, 2020

“Baptism of the Spirit” is a term many Catholics have heard. But one that leaves a lot of question marks. What’s the difference between the sacrament of baptism and baptism of the Spirit? Is baptism of the Spirit in the bible? I didn’t hear about baptism of the Spirit when I was younger—is this something new in Catholicism? Listen as Richaél Lucero answers all of these questions and more.

Clumsy Theosis - Do Converts Know More About the Faith?

Clumsy Theosis - Do Converts Know More About the Faith?

May 29, 2020

Have you ever encountered a convert to Catholicism who seems to know the Faith inside and out—more so than most Cradle-Catholics? There is a major difference between those new(er) to Catholicism and those who have had the Faith the majority of their lives.

After reading a book for new converts, “I’m Catholic. Now What?” Richaél Lucero realized that difference is a strong sense of wonder and an appetite for answers. Listen to learn the part wonder plays in your knowledge of your Faith, what you can gain from new converts, and how to reignite your spark for wonder in the Faith.
