+  Sex and the Person: An Integral Vision

  • Description: Blessed Paul VI’s 1968 encyclical was situated between two other eventful summers – the 1967 “Summer of Love” and the 1969 mission to the moon. In a way, these events are connected – they both represent man’s desire to conquer the limits of nature. Mark Latkovic joins us with a look at the encyclical and the unique vision of the Person it presents.

    • Inseparable: Five Perspectives on Sex, Life, and Love in Defense of Humanae Vitae

      As the Church and the world remember this milestone anniversary of Humanae Vitae, Catholic Answers Press has published an important new multi-contributor exposition of that prophetic encyclical - Inseparable: Five Perspectives on Sex, Life, and Love in Defense of Humanae Vitae. Given the richness of Catholic teaching on the transmission of human life and the different ways due to their temperaments, habits of mind, and life circumstances that people respond to it, we asked our contributors to reflect on and defend that teaching from five perspectives: each of them compelling, all of them together forming a mosaic of truth. Biblical foundations of conjugal love, Nature Law, Personalism and the language of the body, Historical lessons from contraceptive culture, and a couple's witness of lived experience Contributors include some of the most knowledgeable and incisive writers on these subjects today: Joseph Atkinson- associate professor of Sacred Scripture, John Paul II Institute, Washington, D.C.: Paul Gondreau- professor of theology, Providence College: Mark Latkovic- professor of moral and systematic theology, Sacred Heart Major Seminary: Allan Carlson-distinguished visiting professor of history and politics, Hillsdale College, author, Godly Seed: American Evangelicals Confront Birth Control: and Shaun and Jessica McAfee- founder of Epic Pew and author of Reform Yourself! Together they contributed to Surprised by Life. All share a joyful conviction in the truth of Humanae Vitae and a desire to promote and defend it. His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke contributes the foreword. (learn more)

+  A Catholic Vision of the Reformation and Halloween (2 segments)

  • Description: Fall presents an interesting time for Catholics. Most of the rest of the Christian world is celebrating the anniversary of the Reformation – something Catholics see as a tragic failure of division. And of course the secular world looks forward to Halloween, rather than the Catholic celebration of All Saints Day. Rob Corzine joins us to discuss.
