Two Catholic Priests from the Archdiocese of Dubuque talking about all things Catholic.
12 Episodes
Can we reasonably speak about angels? What do we actually believe about them and how do we know it? In this episode and a future one, we look into this topic. Today, we begin by looking at what we believe about God in order to see where angels fit in along with the rest of the created order. 
Today we unveil a new type of episode that we will do occasionally!  Every once-in-a-while we will do a mini study on a passage from scripture. Grab your Bible, pray with the passage, and see what the Lord speaks to you!
How did the early church talk about the Eucharist? In this episode we look at several different passages from St. Justin Martyr, St. Irenaeus of Lyon, and more. We also talk about the development in theology about the Eucharist and the history of the word transubstantiation in the tradition. 
Today we discuss the Eucharist, and the logic of it in the light of both the Old and New Testaments. We also talk about how our belief in the Eucharist naturally flows from the Principle of the Incarnation. Finally, we comment on the fitting eloquence of the Eucharist.
What is God calling you to do with your life?This week we have a special guest, Fr. Jeff Dole, illustrious Pastor of St. Francis of Barclay and St. Athanasius of Jesup, joining us to talk about his vocation to priesthood as we kick off Vocations Awareness Week. 
Today, we keep the discussion going by talking about what Confirmation looks like in the liturgy both in the East and the West, as well as in Christian antiquity.  Also, why do we celebrate the sacrament at different ages? Our Newman Question focuses on the difficulty of practicing our faith during the pandemic. Thanks for listening and feel free to reach out to us with your own questions:
As Pentecost is to Easter, so is Confirmation to Baptism. In this episode we discuss the question of what is Confirmation? We discuss the sacrament as well as some of the relevant scriptural background. Where in the Bible is it? Also, we answer a Newman Question asking if Christianity is just based off of a book. Enjoy!
In this episode we get a little more practical into what discipleship actually looks like. What are some different spiritual practices that I should think about in my life as a disciple?We also talk about a Newman student question that asks about God's causality in the world and how that relates to the problem of evil.
Mark 3:14 - “And he created twelve that they might be with him...”Discipleship is an intimate invitation to being with Jesus. The disciple learns from Jesus through spending time with and following the master. However, the master also invites us into friendship with Him. In this episode we discuss the Old Testament background to discipleship as well as discipleship from various New Testament passages. It is only in contemplation on the fullness of the Gospel, however, that we see discipleship in its totality.  We also answer a Newman Student question on our relationship with God before becoming priests. 
In this episode we talk about baptism. What's the biblical background? What does it look like? What are the effects of baptism?  2 Corinthians 5:17- "Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come."
God is not a distant God, but a God who wants to be close to us. When Jesus ascended into Heaven, He sent us the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit works through the Sacraments bringing about an intensification of God’s Presence in the world. So what are they? Give it a listen!Hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.  -Romans 5:5
