RomeCast 8: The Theology of the Ascension

By |2019-05-30T21:19:19+00:00May 30th, 2019|Podcasts, Sermons, Talks|

In today's podcast we discuss Ascension Thursday, 40 days after Easter. “I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him. And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed."—Dan 7:13-14

RomeCast 7: The Left Changes Their Vocab on Abortion

By |2019-05-29T01:29:08+00:00May 29th, 2019|Podcasts, Sermons, Talks|

Andromeda discusses the changing language of an ABC article linked here where a woman describes her 15 abortions in 16 years.   Far from condemning her, we notice on this podcast how often the term "baby" is now employed by non pro-life Americans, a significant shift in the vocabulary of today.  In this podcast, I also suggest a book called "Forbidden Grief:  The Unspoken Pain of Abortion."  Andromeda indicates Bernard Nathanson's movie about a live abortion called "Eclipse of Reason" (caution:  very violent content.)  The music bumpers and above photo are both from the national Shrine of St. Maximilian Kolbe, Marytown.

Mahound's Paradise tells me in the Loop of Chicago's famous "Russian Tea Time" of his conversion to Catholicism.  This conversion includes St. John Cantius in Restoring the Sacred.  [Correction:  The Charlie Hebdo shooting actually occured on On 7 January 2015.]

Can a Priest Baptize the Baby of a Same-Sex Couple?

By |2023-08-29T19:17:47+00:00May 22nd, 2019|Theology|

In the photo above, a priest baptizes a baby that will be raised by two women. This took place at St. Cecilia’s in California on 7 May 2017. P/C USA Today’s Desert Sun. When a large homeschooling family brings their 9th baby to be baptized, that infant, at the moment of baptism, dies to the original sin in which it was born, comes out of the water risen with Jesus Christ and is a tabernacle of the Blessed Trinity, now beginning life as a son or daughter of God. When two same-sex guardians bring an infant to be baptized, that infant, at the moment of baptism, dies to the original [...]

World Religions Part III: Real Catholicism is the Only Antidote to Chaos

By |2019-05-18T12:38:36+00:00May 18th, 2019|Theology|

I attempted to prove in World Religions part I and part II that Catholicism is the only world religion that even claims to deliver lasting fulfillment to modern man. In this blog post, I will attempt to show that an "updated" Catholicism can never do this.  Only real Catholicism can serve as "an antidote to chaos" to borrow a term from the best-selling book by Jordan Peterson. Yesterday, I drove from Denver to Chicagoland to be with my grandma for what may be her last month on earth. I am vigiling by her bed with both an iPad to get some work done and the old Collectio Rituum to begin [...]

By |2019-05-16T18:50:49+00:00May 16th, 2019|Podcasts, Sermons, Talks|

Oz discusses a Florida bishop from the 1980s who reflected the courageous acts of an ancient saintly bishop, Saint Ubaldo of Gubbio. I then discuss the conversion of grandmother, now 103, seen in the featured picture above. Please pray for her failing health. Finally, sorry about the bad sound quality—we recorded this podcast while I was driving across the country and we are working on getting better recording equipment.

On today's podcast Andromeda and Fr. Dave discuss persecution of Christians in the USA as well as what it means for a priest to wear his cassock or habit.   As will be the custom, we will always close with a quote from the Life of the Virgin by St. Maximus the Confessor.  It can be found on Amazon here.
