Enjoy this week’s podcast on the Pastoral Letter by Archbishop Cordileone in which I comment on common responses by Catholics who opt to excuse themselves from such basic teachings as the Sanctity of Human Life.

“Doubting Thomas” (John 20:19-31), showed us that without asking certain questions, Jesus would not have given us some of his most well known sayings: “Blessed are those that have not seen, yet still believe,” “I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life.”
Fr. Bill talks about questions that arose regarding his own doubts about a popular interpretation of this Sunday’s First Reading (Acts of the Apostles 4:32-35) and how his doubt led to a deeper understanding of Catholic Social Teaching.
Ignorance of History has led to the Cancel Culture that has diseased our society, in which an elite few have accentuated the worst parts of history in order to define our Church, Culture and Nation.
Fr. Bill speaks of how knowing our History is a key component in canceling the Cancel Culture and how St. Joseph personifies the history of Israel, and therefore encompasses the importance of History itself.
How does thee world cleverly draw us away from faithfully obeying the Ten Commandments and how does St. Joseph serve as a model of perfect adherence to them?
Fr. Bill talks about the Ten Commandments of God’s Law, what “Commandments” are imposed upon us by the secular world, and how the world draws us away from faithfully living the Ten Commandments by cleverly weaving a series of “exceptions” to the Commandments themselves that may be more familiar, and startling than we realize.
