Defending the Sacrament of Marriage with Fr. Sebastian Walshe

Defending the Sacrament of Marriage with Fr. Sebastian Walshe

August 10, 2020

Fr. Sebastian Walshe spends some time with me this week to discuss strengthening and defending marriage. He is part of Saint Michael's Abbey in Orange County, California. Learn more about the Abbey and the amazing Abbot's circle at https://www.theabbotscircle.com/

This exclusive Abbot's Circle video series is led by Fr. Sebastian Walshe, O.Praem., who is also the author of the recent book, "Understanding Marriage & Family: A Catholic Perspective". The understanding of marriage and family in western culture has changed significantly in the past 30 years. What used to be taken for granted is now challenged and even rejected. The first series in this course of videos will consider the meanings of the terms ‚Äúmarriage‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúfamily‚ÄĚ and will answer modern objections to the traditional definitions of marriage and family. Among other things, the course will consider the foundations of marriage and family in human experience and human nature. In a second series, the course will cover marriage as a sacrament, that is, insofar as God has revealed truths in sacred Scripture about marriage and family. Finally, in a third series, the course will give practical advice to Christian couples about how to live a flourishing family life. During a time when U.S. marriage rates have plummeted to the lowest in recorded history, and marriage and the family is under attack -- it's important for Catholics to be educated, enlightened, and knowledgeable on issues of faith, marriage and the family, and this series seeks to be a catalyst during this time in our world.

How Old Is Your Church?  with Ken Litchfield

How Old Is Your Church? with Ken Litchfield

July 15, 2020

Apologist and author Ken Litchfield joins me on the program this week.  We discuss his book and some common objections to Catholicism.  He answers the question of what church did Christ establish and where we got the Bible.  It os very informative.

 About Ken's book:

This book is an introductory guide to the Catholic Faith. It is great guide for new Catholics, fallen away Catholics and cradle Catholics. It would be very useful supplement for a confirmation class or an RCIA class.This book explains what the Catholic Church teaches in plain language for the regular pew sitter. It explains the Old Testament Jewish roots of Catholic teachings and the New Testament references for Catholic teachings. As a bonus I provide quotes from early Christian teachers that give the a Catholic interpretation of the Old and New Testaments before 500AD. The book is laid out to take a person from pagan to Catholic in 100 pages or an individual chapter can be read on its own. This book is a first step into the field of Catholic Apologetics with plenty of references for further study.

 Check out the book here:  https://www.amazon.com/How-Old-Your-Church-Introductory-ebook/dp/B07JDD4RGH/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=ken+litchfield&qid=1593990106&sr=8-1
