Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on April 29, 2020
4:00 – Social Science Apologetics: The Liturgy of the Domestic Church
Have you ever thought of your family life as a liturgy? The word “liturgy” describes the specific “work” the Church does to heal the damage sin creates in our relationships with God and others. The Liturgy of the Eucharist conquers sin’s power to separate us from God and gives us the grace we need to go forth and build a civilization of love and the complementary liturgy of domestic church life enables us to bring Jesus home (so to speak), empowering us to heal the damage sin has done to the very root of civilization: the human family. We talk Domestic and Monastic spirituality with Dr Greg Popcak.
5:00 – Lessons from St Catherine on Times of Plague and Crisis
In many ways the world of St Catherine of Siena mirrors our own. The Church was shaken by scandals of clerical abuse and division and the bubonic plague was ravaging the developed world. But out of this chaos arose a newly inspired and empowered laity. We celebrate her life and feast day with Fr Thomas McDermott.
