Encyclicalpedia: Spe Salvi (Benedict XVI)

Encyclicalpedia: Spe Salvi (Benedict XVI) In this episode, Zac and Kevin discuss Benedict XVI's Spe Salvi, a masterpiece of Christian theology that is addressed to the faithful and intended to remind us that our faith is not merely informative--it doesn't just tell us about what we should hope--but rather it is performative, changing and transforming our lives as we are conformed to the image of Christ. This is a great encyclical to read, so head here (read free online) or here (buy on Amazon) to find it! We'd love to hear what you think of this episode!

George Weigel and "This Catholic Moment"

George Weigel and "This Catholic Moment"

George Weigel and "This Catholic Moment" In this episode, Zac and Kevin talk about George Weigel's article in the October 2019 issue of First Things, in which Weigel dissects the relationship between modernity and Catholicism and argues that knowing the past 200 years of Catholic history is essential to understanding where the Church finds Herself today. This understanding is especially critical in light of efforts by the German bishops to pursue a synod that hasn't been approved by the Vatican, and by the efforts of certain prelates to modernize the Church via this month's Amazon Synod.

Is it *really* the Body and Blood? w/Kevin Beauchemin

Is it *really* the Body and Blood? w/Kevin Beauchemin

Is it really the Body and Blood? In this episode, Kevin Beauchemin and I break down the Church's teaching on the True Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, focusing on three main questions: 1. Is it in the Bible? 2. How can Jesus be in multiple times and places at once? 3. Is the dogma metaphysically sound? We barely scratched the surface so can promise future episodes along these lines in the future, but if this piqued your interest, we recommend Brant Pitre's Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist and Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger's God is Near Us: The Eucharist, the Heart of Life. And, of course, the Summa Theologica. We also mentioned: - Dominicana Journal - Scripture Catholic's Eucharist Page We'd love to hear what you think of this episode!
