Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on August 3, 2018
4:00 – The Catholic Church Saved my Marriage
Before they became Catholic, Dr Dave Anders and his wife had just one thing in common – their contempt for each other. Today they are extremely happy together – thanks to their embrace of the Church’s teachings. Dave joins us with the story of how the Church saved his marriage – and possibly even his life.
5:00 – Taking Action against the Abuse Scandal
What can the Church do to clean up the mess of the ongoing abuse and financial scandals? How can the laity get involved? Fr. Gerald Murray has some ideas. We also discuss the changes to the Catechism and the Church’s understanding of the dignity of the human person.
5:40 – Pope Francis and Capital Punishment
The Vatican has announced that the Catechism will be changed to declare the death penalty “inadmissible,” due to the “inviolability and dignity of the person.” Why has Church teaching allowed for the death penalty up until now? What did the Fathers and Doctors of the Church have to say on the matter? We talk with Ed Feser.
