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?"

This week on Thinking Faith, in keeping with the Marian theme of this Month of May Eric and Brett discuss our Church's Marian Dogmas. We'll look at what the Church has to say about Mary's role as Theotokos (God Bearer), her Immaculate Conception, Perpetual Virginity and Assumption into heaven all through the lens of a very exciting dialog document produced by the Anglican-Roman Catholic International Commission (ARCIC) seeking common ground on Mary between Anglican's and Catholics. AND if this piques your interest, you can even read ARCIC's "Mary: Grace and Hope in Christ" document for free right here; 

Mary: Grace and Hope in Christ

And really, what could be better than free things and Mary?

In preparation for World Day of Prayer for Vocations on Sunday, May 7th, we've got a very special treat for this week's Thinking Faith! Chris Juchacz is a seminarian studying to be a priest for the Archdiocese of Regina. In this interview, featuring guest host William Sinclair of “The Real Truth About You Podcast”, Chris speaks openly and candidly about his own journey to the priesthood.

 

This week on Thinking Faith Eric and Brett step out onto shaky ground as they approach Paul's Letter to the Ephesians chapter 5 and try to get to the bottom of just what Paul means when he says "Wives, submit to your husbands". We're jumping in with both feet and eyes closed. Pray for us!

TF31: Thinking About The Resurrection

Last updated on April 18, 2017

This week the Christian world rejoices in our Risen Lord! What better time to sit down and do some serious thinking about the fact of the Resurrection. All four Gospels assert it, our Creeds profess it, and Saint Paul boldly declares  that “if Christ has not been raised, then our proclamation has been in vain and your faith has been in vain.” (1 Cor 15:14). This week on Thinking Faith Brett and Eric discuss what happened in the tomb on that Easter Sunday 2000 years ago and what the Resurrection means for us today.

This week on a special Holy Week Edition of Thinking Faith! We'd like to invite you to join us in a few moments of retreat. In preparation for the Triduum celebrations to come this Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday we're going to take some time to reflect on Christ's call to be the face of mercy that this world so desperately needs. Now, this is a few segments of a Lenten Retreat on the theme of Mercy that I delivered just a few weeks ago for the folks at St. Aloysius parish in Filmore Saskatchewan. We'll take some time to deepen our understanding of the merciful love of God, and discover the importance of experiencing the merciful love of God ourselves before we can be the face of Christ's mercy for others.
