HALTING THE CANCEL CULTURE – The Importance of Knowing Your History

Homily – 4th Sunday of Lent – B

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.

WITHOUT FAITH THERE IS NO SCIENCE

New Podcast – “Faith, Hope & History with Fr. Bill”
How and why the Catholic Church is NOT against Science.

“Following ‘the Science'” is a common invocation asserted by many as a one-upmanship to those who profess particularly a Christian faith; as if those of a deep faith are closed to accepting “the science.”  More often than not the Church’s conflict with Galileo is invoked as a demonstration of how the Catholic Church and the Christian Faith is hostile to Science.  Fr. Bill discusses the issue, demonstrating that the opposite is true.  Not only does Christianity, and in particular Catholicism, have no problem with Science, but it is because of the Christian Faith, and in particular the Catholic Church, that Science and scientific studies were able to grow and flourish in the West.

Join Fr. Bill as he talks about the how Christianity and the Judeo-Christian worldview paved the way for the growth of Science, and how the Catholic Church fostered such studies.  He will even name a few priests and bishops who were pioneers in many of the modern fields of scientific study.  Some of them may surprise you!

NATIONAL HEROES & CATHOLIC SAINTS – A Lesson for Post-Election America

Homily
ALL SAINTS DAY

What can we learn from the lessons of our National Heroes as Americans, and our Heroes in Holiness as Church? Fr. Bill gives a vision for a post-election 2020 America in which the Church, by the example of American Heroes and Catholic Saints, can itself be an example for our fellow countrymen and the world in moving beyond our differences and moving forward as a nation.
