Chris Ferrara vs. Mark Shea: The AOTM Pregame Show
Michael Matt interviews Chris Ferrara moments before the AOTM's "Great Debate of 2016". Has the Catholic Church abandoned her defined dogma on the necessity of Baptism and membership in the Catholic Church? Does the divine commission still apply, that we must go forth to make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Ghost?
A growing number of Catholics, including cardinals and bishops, are coming to recognize that the current pontificate is causing grave harm to the Church. Is it time for Pope Francis to step down? Michael discusses it.
SUNDAY SERMON. Father offers commentary on Satan's recorded words in Holy Scripture, especially his desperate attempt to tempt Christ in the desert. Why did St. Augustine call the Cross "Satan's trap"?
Did Pope Francis get the Church's teaching on Confession wrong? Sunday Sermons from South St. Paul tackles the question. Plus, did the Risen Christ appear to Mary first? Why did He not admonish the Apostles in the Upper Room for abandoning Him on Calvary? What can we learn about Doubting Thomas, mercy and the establishment of Sacred Tradition?
A follow-up to last week's episode, Michael discusses the cultural void and how answers can be found by rebuilding Christian culture in the home rather than trying to ban Katy, Miley and Gaga. Plus, a word about the great Pilgrimage to Chartres, France -- Catholic counterculture in action.
Before the recent Catholic Identity Conference, I sat down with Bishop Athanasius Schneider and asked him a few questions about the Traditional Latin Mass, Amoris Laetitia, Cardinal Burke and the Dubia, Communion in the hand, the coming desecration of the Eucharist, resisting Pope Francis, and the increasingly obvious failure that is the Second Vatican Council.
Please keep in mind that it was not my intent to “grill the bishop”. I have known him for some time and have come to respect him more than I can say. It was my intent to assist our readers and friends around the world to get to know this most courageous churchman—a man of faith and deep appreciation for the traditions of Holy Mother Church.
