TF44: Thinking About NFP - Part 2

Last updated on July 18, 2017

This week on 'Thinking Faith!', Eric and Brett continue their discussion of Natural Family Planning looking more closely at what NFP actually involves, the kinds of healthy conversations that it encourages couples to have in their relationship and we'll look at the potential NFP has for providing a surprising avenue of spiritual growth for couples and individuals. Due to the program content, you may not want to share this with your kids so find a quiet place or put your headphones on and enjoy the exciting conclusion to our discussion!

TF43: Thinking About NFP - Part 1

Last updated on July 11, 2017

This week Eric and Brett begin a two-part series on Natural Family Planning. It's a topic that can result in interesting and animated conversations with family and friends and in parish groups. In the next two episodes, we'll make some distinctions and clarifications around what NFP is and isn't as well as our general attitudes towards family, relationships, and sexuality. Due to the program content, you may not want to share this with your kids so find a quiet place or put your headphones on and let's see what all the fuss is about.

This week Eric and Brett welcome Joan Myers from the Archdiocese of Regina's Marriage Tribunal office to discuss the marriage annulment process. We'll examine some of the most common misconceptions about annulments, and look at some of the nitty-gritty details about the process itself.  We'll also be looking at the kinds of things couples can do even before the wedding day itself, to lay a solid foundation on which to build a lasting marriage. What to do before you say "I Do", and how to navigate the often messy labyrinth of a broken relationship through this surprisingly healing ministry of the Church on Thinking Faith!

Is the Trinity really an unfathomable mystery? Did we exhaust all our material last week? Does any of this have any real application to our daily lives? And what the heck is a Filioque...and if you've got one, is there a cure? These questions and more get answered in part two of our series on the Trinity - wherein we also quite intentionally ignore the fact that we've done only two episodes on...the Trinity.

We begin a two-part series on the Trinity this week on Thinking Faith! It's one of the most central doctrines of our Christian faith and can be found etched in our prayer, sacramental and liturgical lives and yet, it can be one of the most challenging doctrines for Christiane to speak about with others. This week we'll delve into the mystery that is the Trinity. We discuss what it actually means to call the Trinity a Mystery, we'll ask hard hitting questions like "Is God really a shamrock, or is He more like an apple?" and try to figure out if there is anything we can say at all about...the Trinity.

TF39: The God Of The Shack

Last updated on June 13, 2017

The movie the Shack hit theaters mid-Lent and with it arose much discussion surrounding some of the feminine imagery - for God and the Holy Spirit - used in both the film and the book. Following on the tails of last week's 'Heresy' episode, this week Eric and Brett take a look at the kinds of language and images that can be used in reference to God. We regularly call God 'Father', can God be 'Mother' too? And what can we say about the Holy Spirit? We're playing the "Is it heresy?" game once again on Thinking Faith!

TF38: Trying Not To Be Heretics

Last updated on June 6, 2017

This week on Thinking Faith! Eric and Brett are trying their darndest to NOT be heretics. We'll look at what heresy is (and isn't) we'll talk about some common examples and share some tips on what to do if you think you've encountered a heretic in your midst! From Dominican video games to St. Nicholas punching Arius in the face, we'll see if our hapless hosts can avoid getting fired over this one!

 

TF37:TransubstantiationRedux

Last updated on May 30, 2017

Eric and Brett return to the Mailbag to answer a listener question surrounding our February podcast on Transubstantiation. This week Sam wonders about our relationship with our Lutheran and Anglican brothers and sisters in faith who often also express similar beliefs about their Eucharist celebrations as being more than merely symbolic. We'll talk about what kinds of things we hold in common, what still separates us and dig a bit deeper into our own understanding of this mystery that is for Catholic "The Source and Summit of the whole Christian life". It's one of our most shared topics so far - we just can't get enough of Transubstantiation!

This week on Thinking Faith we're honoring Catholic Education week with our special guest Miles Meyers Coordinator Catholic Education Services for the Regina Catholic School Division. We'll be talking about Catholic Identity in our Catholic Schools and specifically about what is known as Curriculum Permeation which has the potential of being a complete 'game-changer' in faith-based education. Join us as we ponder the plethora of prolific potential in permeation!

Welcome to another week of Thinking Faith! Brett and Eric are continuing with last week's Marian theme (In keeping with this Marian month of May) and ripping into the mailbag to answer some listener questions about Marian Apparitions. This week we address questions from James and Elaine who find themselves wondering about the propensity of Mary to appear from time, the tradition of the Church to mark some of these places as special pilgrimage sites, and just how we, as Catholics, ought to approach the testimonies and experiences of the witnesses, seers, and pilgrims associated with them. As we prepare to honor the 100th Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions which began on May 13, 1917, we invite you to join us as we ask "What's A Catholic To Believe About Marian Apparitions?"
