The Greatest Problem Known to ManIn today's episode we briefly explore the "Problem of Evil," using atheist J.L. Mackie's formulation, which can be paraphrased as: "It is not possible that all three of the following are true at once: 1) That God is omnipotent; 2) that God is wholly good; 3) that evil exists."Is Mackie right? Is God not all good? Does God cause evil or only permit it? Why? Send your feedback to zac@creedalcatholic.com or kevin@creedalcatholic.com. Thanks for listening!P.S. Tune in next week for a discussion about Familiaris Consortio. We'd love to hear what you think of this episode!

Encyclicalpedia: Spe Salvi (Benedict XVI)In this episode, Zac and Kevin discuss Benedict XVI's Spe Salvi, a masterpiece of Christian theology that is addressed to the faithful and intended to remind us that our faith is not merely informative--it doesn't just tell us about what we should hope--but rather it is performative, changing and transforming our lives as we are conformed to the image of Christ. This is a great encyclical to read, so head here (read free online) or here (buy on Amazon) to find it! We'd love to hear what you think of this episode!

George Weigel and "This Catholic Moment"In this episode, Zac and Kevin talk about George Weigel's article in the October 2019 issue of First Things, in which Weigel dissects the relationship between modernity and Catholicism and argues that knowing the past 200 years of Catholic history is essential to understanding where the Church finds Herself today. This understanding is especially critical in light of efforts by the German bishops to pursue a synod that hasn't been approved by the Vatican, and by the efforts of certain prelates to modernize the Church via this month's Amazon Synod.

Is it really the Body and Blood?In this episode, Kevin Beauchemin and I break down the Church's teaching on the True Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, focusing on three main questions:1. Is it in the Bible?2. How can Jesus be in multiple times and places at once?3. Is the dogma metaphysically sound?We barely scratched the surface so can promise future episodes along these lines in the future, but if this piqued your interest, we recommend Brant Pitre's Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist and Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger's God is Near Us: The Eucharist, the Heart of Life. And, of course, the Summa Theologica.We also mentioned: - Dominicana Journal- Scripture Catholic's Eucharist PageWe'd love to hear what you think of this episode!

Tarantino's Theology w/ Fr. Jim BaronIn this episode I sit down with my pastor, Fr.

We discuss the echoes of Flannery O'Connor in Tarantino's work, his characters' collisions with grace, the purpose of the violence, and whether or not Tarantino is a pre-modern or post-modern artist.

Dare We Hope?In this episode of Creedal Catholic, I sit down with Fr. Harrison Ayre, Pastor of Holy Family/Notre Dame Parish in Port Alberni, Canada, to talk about Hans Urs von Balthasar's controversial Dare We Hope That All Men Be Saved? Fr. Harrison and I discuss the broader context of Balthasar's work, whether or not Balthasar is guilty of advocating apokatastasis (universal reconciliation), Josef Pieper's two categories of hopelessness, Balthasar as an antidote to the dual predestination of Calvinism, whether or not God created hell, and the devil as an "un-person." It's a fascinating conversation and I hope that you enjoy!Fr. Harrison mentioned a few articles by Balthasar that I promised to links:"Theology and Sanctity" is in this larger work (Ignatius)The Fathers, the Scholastics, and OurselvesReach out to us: Email | Instagram | Twitter | PatreonOther shows on the Vernacular Podcast Network:Vernacular | Breaking Pod | The Popped Cast | The Lineup
