The Frank Friar - Episode 75: Pope Francis, Silence, and Gaudete et Exsultate

April 17, 2018

Pope Francis released an apostolic exhortation this week on holiness.  Within this document he has several thoughts about silence in the life of holiness.  If his comments are taken out of context, Our Holy Father is treating the gift and tool of silence in a harsh way.  In the podcast episode today, I offer a way for us to understand his words, particularly in the context of this document.  Silence can never be an excuse or an escape from the life of charity that we are all called to.

the Misfit Faith podcast - Episode 20: Faith Getting Woke: Overcoming our Body Issues (with Seth Taylor)

April 16, 2018

Episode #20 of Misfit Faith begins a new series on how Christianity can survive in our twenty-first century postmodern culture. I address the various ways we might respond to this challenge, and then chat with Seth Taylor about the church’s fear of the body and of the material world. I answer a listener’s questions about priestly celibacy and the threat of hell, and end the episode with some straight-talk about how damn old we all are.

Questions Covered:

  • 03:11 - What’s the Catholic equivalent of the question “have you been saved?” When are we saved?
  • 05:00 - My wife and I are going through a rough patch, and I heard a phrase that said “marriages should mirror the gospel.” What does that mean and how would I do that?
  • 11:26 - If Jesus was Jewish does that mean Judaism was around longer than Catholicism?

Catholic Answers Live - Open Forum with Jimmy Akin - April 12, 2018 - 6pm

April 16, 2018

The callers choose the topics during Open Forum, peppering our guests with questions on every aspect of Catholic life and faith, the moral life, and even philosophical topics that touch on general religious belief.

Questions Covered:

  • 06:18 - I saw people kneeling when they received communion and I thought it was so beautiful, and when I went to my home parish they told me that was frowned upon. What should I do?
  • 15:59 - Is it possible that there will be a unification between Catholics and Protestants?
  • 22:37 - If laws in UK, Sweden, Norway, and Denmark were to change to allow for a Catholic monarch, would there conversions be handled by an individual bishop or several bishops to handle any needs they might have? Additionally, with Prince Charles, how would his previous marriage be handled?
  • 29:43 - I know the teaching of the Church is that Mary was conceived sinless and that means it was preordained, predestined, but then it is also said that Mary had a choice and she said yes when the angel told her she would conceive. So I’m confused about if she was predestined to be chosen or if it was her free will?
  • 33:00 - What will Jesus do when he comes back to earth, and what will happen to us? What would happen to me if I wasn’t baptized?
  • 36:55 - Is there a difference between an atheist and an agnostic atheist?
  • 42:40 - What role does a sense of humor play in our Catholic faith, and are there instances of humor in the bible?
  • 52:37 - What’s the difference between spirit and soul? Does the Church have a teaching on this?

Bible Study Evangelista - Episode 11: The “Who” of the Old Testament

April 16, 2018

God says He is Who He is, and nothing else. In the Bible, in His own words, we see that He is a living, personal God who insists on treating the persons He has made as persons too, by revealing Himself to them. In encountering God in the scriptures we can then consider that the Old Testament, and indeed the whole Bible, is about this same gradual, increasing self-disclosure to a particular race of people just like me: the revelation of a Person to persons, like ourselves, who also actually lived in a certain place at a certain time.

Notes and References

“A name expresses a person’s essence and identity and the meaning of this person’s life. God has a name; he is not an anonymous force. To disclose one’s name is to make oneself known to others; in a way, it is to hand oneself over by becoming accessible, capable of being known more intimately and addressed personally” (CCC 203).

St. Irenaeus, who was the bishop of Lyon in late second-century France, said that to understand “the divine program and economy for the salvation of humanity” we have to understand God’s “several covenants with humanity” and also “the special character of each covenant.” (Against the Heresies, Book I, Chapter 10, no. 3).
