Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on January 28, 2019
4:00 – The Truth Shall Set Us Free, but Only if We Let it
We’ve seen this routine before: a story breaks online, the media rushes to judgement, celebrities and politicians jump on the bandwagon demanding justice and social media follows suit. A few days later, more information emerges and the initial villain is seen in a very different light. And then the mea-culpa media bemoans the nature of the internet mob and promises to do better. We saw this last week with Nick Sandmann and we’ll likely see it again. Will it ever change? We talk with Teresa Tomeo, who focuses on this topic in an upcoming webinar.
4:20 – Kresta Comments: The Church’s Relations with China
4:40 – “For the Love of my People, I Will Not Remain Silent”
The relationship of atheistic China with the most universal global spiritual power—the Catholic Church—is in a state of flux. There are two Catholic communities in China: the “underground”, or unofficial, Church and the official, government-controlled Patriotic Church. The Vatican is trying to build its relationship with the Patriotic Church – but is it doing so at the expense of its faithful underground Catholics? Cardinal Joseph Zen joins us.
5:00 – What is the Development of Doctrine?
We spoke the other day with Jimmy Akin about the different levels of Authority within the Church and how they apply to Church teaching. Jimmy joins us again to continue the conversation with a focus on the Development of Doctrine.
