    Pope Benedict XVI and Sexual Abuse in the Church

    Pope Benedict XVI and Sexual Abuse in the Church

    31 - Pope Benedict XVI just published this past Wednesday, April 10, 2019, a 6,000 word essay titled: The Church and the Scandal of Sexual Abuse. This bombshell piece of work shows what he believes lead to the sexual abuse crisis that we have witnessed in the Catholic Church and in society at large over the last several decades. 

    For more in depth coverage of this essay please listen to the Dr. Taylor Marshall Catholic Show podcast which will be out later today, April 11. Dr. Marshall and Tim Gordon will talk in depth about this essay and what it means for all of us. 

    You may also want to listen to the Patrick Madrid Show podcast or his show archive on Relevant Radio from his Thursday show. Patrick devoted the majority of his three hour show to reading and talking about Pope Benedict's essay as well as giving people the opportunity to call in live to discuss how they felt. 

    You don't want to miss either of those two shows.

    Please visit Catholic News Agency for the full text version of Pope Benedict's essay.

    What are the Rules for Receiving Communion

    What are the Rules for Receiving Communion

    30 - The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches us in order to receive the Eucharist during Holy Communion at Mass, we need to be in a State of Grace, free from mortal sin. We also need to observe the required fast by not eating or drinking within one hour of receiving the Holy Eucharist. We should also be going to confession often to keep our souls clean as possible, free of all sin, mortal and venial. Receive communion as often as you can, even every day, as long as you only receive once per day. 

    Before and after communion, give thanks to God for the great gift he has given us and take time to pray for your special intentions.

    The Bread of Life | Change Your Life Forever

    The Bread of Life | Change Your Life Forever

    29 - Jesus said, "Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day." Welcome to Lesson 29 in the All About My Catholic Faith Podcast. We continue this week in our catechism series talking about the Holy Eucharist. I used to think that a person needed to belong to the Catholic Church in order to be saved and have eternal life in heaven. This lesson will teach you what Jesus actually taught 2,000 years ago. 

    What was the manna that God sent to his people?

    Did all of the disciples of Jesus believe he was God?

    Was Jesus speaking figuratively when he told his disciples to eat his flesh and drink his blood?

    Do we really need to eat the flesh of Jesus and drink his blood?

    How can one receive the body and blood of Jesus?



    Bible Reading for today:

    The Bread of Life Discourse: Gospel of St. John, Chapter 6

    The Perfect Sacrifice - The Holy Mass

    The Perfect Sacrifice - The Holy Mass

    This is lesson number 27 - The Sacrifice of the Mass - The Holy Eucharist as the Perfect Sacrifice.

    Welcome back to another episode of All About My Catholic Faith. This is the second of three lessons about the Holy Eucharist. Last week we talked about how the Holy Eucharist was a sacrament. Today in this lesson, we're going to talk about how the Holy Eucharist is a sacrifice.

    The areas we're going to talk about in today's lesson are about the Mass being a sacrifice. We're going to talk about the cross being the perfect sacrifice and we're going to talk about the Mass also being the perfect sacrifice continued from the original sacrifice on the cross. I will also to talk about the Mass being a ceremony, as well as the purposes of the Mass, and how the Mass is our sacrifice, and finally how we should assist at Mass.

    So let's start talking first about the Mass being a sacrifice. Two thousand years ago, on Calvary, Jesus Christ was sacrificed in a bloody manner, which means that he gave his life. He gave every drop of his blood as a sacrifice for us and to save us from our sins. The Mass that we go to every week is also a sacrifice of Christ that's offered in a sacramental manner, not a bloody manner. And of course, not only is the Mass a sacrifice, it is also a sacrament like we talked about last week. The Mass is indeed a Sacrament, or a sign of the sacrifice of Jesus. In this way, it's actually a sign of Christ, in action, offering himself in love to God the Father as he did when he died on the cross. When Jesus died on the cross for us he did it out of pure love for us and for his Father. The Mass is also an act of love, it's our share in the great act of love that Christ made on the cross.

    Bible Reading for this lesson:  

    1st Corinthians, Chapter 11: 23-30

    The Source and Summit - The Holy Eucharist

    The Source and Summit - The Holy Eucharist

    John 6:52 - The Bread that I will give is My Flesh for the life of the world. This week's lesson is on the Source and Summit of our Faith, the Holy Eucharist. Actually, the Holy Eucharist is so important in our faith that this lesson will be spread over the next three weeks. In this first lesson will see the way in which Christ is contained in the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist, Next week’s lesson we’ll see that the Sacrament is a sign of Christ sacrificed.  The third episode we will see that the Sacrament is the food for our soul.

     Hello everybody and welcome back to another episode of All About My Catholic Faith. I really hope that you're doing great today and having a wonderful Lent so far. If you're not listening to this podcast during Lent then I hope you're having a wonderful week whatever time of year it is.  

    When did Jesus start the Holy Eucharist and how did he do it? How are the bread and the wine changed into the Body and Blood of Jesus? How can that be done still today when Jesus is not here with us? 

    Bible Readings for this lesson: 

    1st Corinthians chapter 10: 16-17 

    Gospel of St. Luke chapter 22: starting verse 7

    Christ instituted and started the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper when he took the bread, and he blessed, it and he broke it, and he gave it to his disciples saying “Take and Eat, This is my Body,” and then he took the cup of wine, he also blessed it and he gave it to his disciples and said “All of you drink this, for this is my Blood of the New Covenant which is being shed for many unto the Forgiveness of sins.” Finally then towards the end of the Last Supper, he gave his Apostles a very important assignment which was their commission to go out into the world and do this same celebration in remembrance of him. And this didn't just mean for them to go out and eat bread and drink wine and to remember this last supper that they had just had with Jesus. No, actually he was telling them, his new priests of his Church, to go throughout the world teaching and preaching, as well as giving them the power to change simple bread and simple wine into his real, true Body and Blood.

    Does the Bishop Hit You at Confirmation

    Does the Bishop Hit You at Confirmation

    The Character of Confirmation gives us the power to be soldiers in Christ's army, fighting with him against the enemies of the Faith. We do not fight against persons, but for them, as an army of liberation to free them from the enemies of their soul.

    This is lesson number 25, the Sacrament of Confirmation

    Hello everybody, I want to welcome you back to another lesson of All About My Catholic Faith. If this is the first time that you've joined this podcast, I want to thank you and welcome you, and if you've been here before, then also a very big thank you. If you need to go back and review some of the previous lessons, you can do that by looking In the archives where you get your podcast or you can go to our website, All About My Catholic Faith.com were you’ll find all the past episodes and lessons for this catechism series.

    I'm so thankful to be joined by my son Christopher again this week.

    Last week we started the series on the Sacraments by talking about Baptism, and remember Baptism is the gateway to all of the other Sacraments of the Church. In order to receive any of the other Sacraments, you must first receive the Sacrament of Baptism. If you remember from last week's lesson, on Baptism we are born again of water and of the Holy Spirit. This week we're going to talk about Confirmation. At Confirmation, the Holy Spirit gives us power to grow from our infancy to adulthood in the life of Grace in the Church and gives us the strength of a soldier to fight for Jesus Christ.

    Bible Readings for this lesson:  

    St Luke's Gospel, chapter 10: 1-20

    Acts of the Apostles, chapter 8: 14

    Acts of the Apostles, chapter 2

    1st Peter, chapter 4
