We're back with lots more Lord of the Rings and its significance for fantasy and family! First, the founder of Tea with Tolkien joins us to share her mission of spreading the author's wisdom and world. Then, Kara joins to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the film release of Fellowship of the Ring. Topics covered include: the Immaculate Conception, Frodo paying off his student loans, Tom Bombadil's divisiveness, and trees. Lots of trees. Episode Notes
Kara and Andrew go on a journey with Sir Gawain to see if he’s up to the Green Knight’s challenge. Honestly, though, traveling with Bilbo or Frodo would be a more enjoyable experience. Topics include: Memento Mori, humanity’s relationship with nature, talking foxes, and random giants. Episode Notes
Our journey through Men, Women, and the Mystery of Love concludes with the book’s author, Dr. Edward Sri! Join us as he gives the inside scoop on the book’s background and where it leads. Topics covered include: doing it for the gram, the scourge of event maybes, Jesus is enough, and the point of virtue is to give us the freedom to love. Episode Notes
We had too much to say about When Harry Met Sally! We’re back with the second part of our chat about this endlessly entertaining, and at least somewhat edifying, look at relationships. Topics include: Gerald Ford, 80’s hair, the disputed nature of “chick flicks”, and the applicable ideas from Men, Women, and the Mystery of Love. Episode Notes
We finish up our two-part interview with Eden Invitation’s Anna Carter BUT we also start another multi-parter with the first of (at least) two episodes on When Harry Met Sally, the classic romcom from 1989. Seriously, we had way too much to say about this movie, even more than we thought going in. Episode Notes
In the first of a two-part interview, Anna Carter imparts her wisdom gained from Eden Invitation's exciting ministry relating to same-sex attraction and gender discordance. Following that, Kara jumps in to wrap up Men, Women, and the Mystery of Love with a cool conversation about remote preparation for marriage (i.e. singlehood). Episode Notes
Damon Owens of Joyful Ever After joins for a surprisingly fun chat about NFP Week. Then Kara stops by for a while to cover Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, one of our favorite movies. Topics covered include: Elon Musk’s space ambitions, the Trinitarian theology of booby traps, and can archeology serve as a vessel for loving your family? Episode Notes
Our guest Alice Heinzen tells us about grandparenthood, but maybe we should have brought her back for the second segment too. Kara and Andrew talk about Men, Women, and the Mystery of Love‘s section on tenderness, and find themselves disagreeing a bit. Is this the end for our heroes? Nah, it’s fine.   Episode Notes
To mark Father's Day, Bishop Konderla joins us to chat about St. Joseph, fatherhood, and Pope Francis's apostolic letter Patris Corde. Then later we keep the Father's Day vibes rolling when Kara joins to talk about A Quiet Place (2018) and A Quiet Place Part II (2021), starring Emily Blunt and John Krasinski. Topics covered: cheating off of Bishop Barron's work, Neil Young's devotion to music at risk of life and limb, and does John Krasinski's fatherhood model Christ's sacrificial love?   Episode Notes
Dr. Abigail Favale is back for part 2 of her interview about language in Gender Theory. Plus, Kara joins us to cover Men, Women, and the Mystery of Love chapters 7-9. Topics covered include chastity, modesty, the Me Too movement, and frat bros.   Episode Notes
Dr. Abigail Favale joins us for part 1 of her interview on the language of Gender Theory, which has a huge influence on current thought about what the human person is made for. Then, Kara talks excitedly about Pride and Prejudice (the 1995 BBC miniseries, not so much the movie).   Episode Notes
The second part of our interview with Mike and Alicia Hernon of the Messy Family Project continues our conversation about balancing priorities in a marriage. Totally by coincidence, our discussion of Men, Women, and the Mystery of Love later in the episode happens to intersect.   Episode Notes
Mike and Alicia Hernon join us for part 1 of their interview on how to balance loving your spouse and kids. Kara stops by to chat about the Oscar contender Minari.   Episode Notes
Dr. Greg and Lisa Popcak are back for part 2 of our interview on overcoming resentment, this time in marriage. Later, Kara returns to talk about chapters 3-4 of Men, Women, and the Mystery of Love.   Episode Notes
Dr. Greg and Lisa Popcak are here to offer ways to help with resentment in dating and breakups. Kara joins us to cover Pixar's most recent film Soul, starring Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey, because how could we not? Jazz and metaphysics never went so well together.   Episode Notes
Fr. Philip Bochanski, Executive Director of Courage International, about accompaniment and same-sex attraction. Then Kara joins us to start our journey through Dr. Edward Sri’s Men, Women, and the Mystery of Love, with detours through Sex and the City and the Supreme Court. You know, like you’d expect. Episode notes
Made for Love returns to talk about the impact of the sacraments on life as an embodied person, plus Andrew and Kara chat about the Studio Ghibli classic movie My Neighbor Totoro.   Thanks to Sara Perla for everything she did to get this show off the ground and pilot it for the first two years. Without her efforts, we would not be able to continue on. She has moved on to work at the Catholic Project on their podcast "Crisis".   More show notes
In this pandemic, it is more important than ever to love one another! Today's episode features Amy Stout (and family), Sarah Engel, Fr. Dan Leary of the Archdiocese of Washington, and Jason Kidd. This is also the last episode of Made for Love for now, as Sara Perla is leaving for another adventure!
Kathryn Jean Lopez meets Christ on the streets every day in New York City.
The primary place for education on human dignity is the family. Racism has no place in Catholic families. Today’s episode features Bishop Fabre of the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, Danielle Brown, Associate Director of the Ad Hoc Committee Against Racism for the USCCB, and Louis Damani Jones, intern at the Catholic Campaign for Human Development in St. Louis. Reminder that show notes are at the blog at Marriage: Unique for a Reason.
