Evangelization has become the buzzword among Catholics for quite some time now - and the mission is for all of us, to bring Christ to the nations! Living in a post-Christian society, the mission field is often no further than our front door, our workplace, our schools, our neighborhood. We continue the conversation burning on our hearts about how best to bring Jesus to the world! Join Fr. Joseph, Carmelena, Sakhile, and John as we discuss the evangelical mission of the Church in the modern world!
"What is truth?" asked Pontius Pilate - and in our modern world, that question has ever more relevance. Can we know the truth? Should we always tell the truth? How can we discern the truth from all of the lies that constantly bombard us? Tune in to hear how Fr. Joseph, Lauren, and Matt discuss how they seek to live in accords with the Truth!
Pretty much everyone listens to music. Whether classical or contemporary, soothing or exciting, music provides the background to our life - and often the background to our spiritual lives as well, as music can be a powerful tool to encounter God (or for drawing us away from Him!). Tune in to hear Fr. Joseph, Lauren, and Matt discuss how music has impacted their lives and their journey of faith.
Do you like to laugh? There is something so delightful and joyful about humor. One might even say that humor is a gift from God, who created the world with all its funny absurdities and follies and puns which bring a smile to our faces! Tune in to hear some (corny!) jokes and how Fr. Joseph, Paul, and Diane enjoy a good laugh together - and how it brings them closer to God!
"The Church doesn't HAVE a mission, the Church IS a mission." The very nature of the Church is to fulfill Jesus' command to "go forth and preach the Gospel to all nations." But how well is the Church doing with that mission, especially in today's post-Christian society? And how can young adults contribute to that mission of bringing the Gospel to their neighborhoods, workplaces, and friendships? Tune in to hear Fr. Joseph, Carmelena, John, and Sakhile as they discuss evangelization from the perspective of a parishioner in the pew!
In this second part of the two-part episode, Fr. Joseph, Lauren, Diane, and special guest Mary Kulhanek discuss how the teachings of Humanae Vitae are lived out in the different stages of life. Openness to, and appreciation for, the gift of human life is important to all Catholics, whether married or single, young or old!
Have you ever read the document "Humanae Vitae"? Many young adult Catholics have never even heard of this earth-shattering encyclical, released by Pope Paul VI in 1968. At the apex of the Sexual Revolution, Pope Paul's words ring prophetic about the dignity and beauty of human sexuality in the way that God intended it. Tune in to Fr. Joseph, Paul, Lauren, and Diane as they discuss Humanae Vitae's relevance to our modern world today!
As Catholics, we value all life as sacred, from the moment of conception until natural death. But what does that mean, practically - especially for young adults? Join Fr. Joseph, Lauren, Diane, and Carmelena as we talk about our own efforts in the pro-life movement, and how we can contribute to building a culture of life!
Normally, Fr. Joseph asks the questions - but this time the tables are turned! Tune in to this week's episode of Restless to hear Paul, Lauren, and Diane try to stump Fr. Joseph with their best questions about our Catholic Faith!
