    Vatican II: Has the Hermeneutic of Continuity Failed? w/Dr. Larry Chapp
    Today I am rejoined by Dr. Larry Chapp, Retired Professor of Theology at De Sales University and author of https://gaudiumetspes22.com/. Dr. Chapp and I discuss a recent blog post of his on Vatican II and the Hermeneutic of Continuity and discuss whether or not that hermeneutic has failed. The verdict: it hasn't, but it also hasn't totally succeeded yet!

Educating Catholics Everywhere

This is a phenomenal podcast filled with great content, intriguing topics, inspiring guests, and educational information. Highly recommend.

We need to educate and inspire

The progressive movement 1890-1950 created the systemic racism we see today

Democrats and some republicans of the south were progressive thinkers.

I push back on my party
