Luke and Gomer became friends Freshman year at the Franciscan University of Steubenville and 14 years later they started a podcast. The show oscillates between a conversation between just the two of us and interviews that we do together of other, fancier people. Sometimes we get explicit either by being too honest or by being too stupid. Either way, it's fun!

    I'd be temperate if it weren't so boring...

    I'd be temperate if it weren't so boring...

    **PROBLEM: **When goes a good thing become a bad thing? What if temperance looks a lot different (and maybe harder) than just not getting drunk or endlessly binging shows? Worse of all, what if temperance bores me to death and I don't want to do it anymore?


    CCC #1809: Temperance is the moral virtue that moderates the attraction of pleasures and provides balance in the use of created goods. It ensures the will's mastery over instincts and keeps desires within the limits of what is honorable. the temperate person directs the sensitive appetites toward what is good and maintains a healthy discretion: "Do not follow your inclination and strength, walking according to the desires of your heart." Temperance is often praised in the Old Testament: "Do not follow your base desires, but restrain your appetites." In the New Testament it is called "moderation" or "sobriety." We ought "to live sober, upright, and godly lives in this world."

    Four Quartets - 1 Burnt Norton — Neither plenitude nor vacancy. Only a flicker
    Over the strained time-ridden faces
    Distracted from distraction by distraction
    Filled with fancies and empty of meaning
    Tumid apathy with no concentration
    Men and bits of paper, whirled by the cold wind
    That blows before and after time,
    Wind in and out of unwholesome lungs

    Main question: What happens after the gimmick is done?



    Marvel Problem- a lot has been said in other podcasts, not looking to rehash what other people have said, but looking at the phase four problem under this guise of this quote- something about how god forgives and nature revolts

    Principles of Liturgy with Dr. Chris Carstens

    Principles of Liturgy with Dr. Chris Carstens

    Get his book, Principles of Sacred Liturgy and of course read through it. It will open your mind towards right and good attitudes that transcend the silliness of personal preferences and attachments to this or that thing. "Start with the documents" and not our idealogy.


    I bring up a lot of cultural issues that go along with liturgy: heretical hymns published in Catholic hymnals, confusion over what the Church is asking of us liturgically, music issues in the Mass, liturgical vs. devotional music, and the role personal prayer plays in the "wild creativity" that Pope Francis blames in part for liturgy wars today.

    Dr. Abigail Favale on Gender Theory, with surprise guest LUKE CAREY!

    Dr. Abigail Favale on Gender Theory, with surprise guest LUKE CAREY!

    I love Dr. Abigail Favale and her work in the Church is much needed. Her new book, The Genesis of Gender: A Christian Theory by Ignatius Press is out and is poppin' fresh. We discuss the main figures of the feminist movement and the core of their philosophies as it shifts into the gender movement: Simone de Beauvoir, Margaret Sanger, and Judith Butler.


    Then Luke walks in. Literally, he walked straight into her conference room where Dr. Favale was recording and joined the show. His audio sucks because he's on his phone. I spent 40 minutes just trying to make it sound better. This is what you get.


    Anywho, good conversation. And boy do I miss Lukey.

    Into the Deep- Wipf and Stock PublishersThe Genesis of Gender — The question of gender—who we are as men and women—has never been more pressing, or more misunderstood. Weaving personal experience with expert knowledge, Dr. Abigail Favale provides an in-depth yet accessible account of the gender paradigm: a framework for understanding reality and identity that has recently risen to prominence. Favale traces the genealogy of gender to its origins in feminism and postmodern thought, describing how gender has come to eclipse sex, and how that shift is reshaping language, law, medicine, sexuality, and our own self-perceptions.

    Nothing Excessive: faith and the sacraments with John DeRosa

    Nothing Excessive: faith and the sacraments with John DeRosa

    John DeRosa is an incredible Catholic who runs the Classical Theism Podcast. He interviewed me for the show and we decided to dual-release it. His version will come out in a couple of weeks or so because, unlike me, he plans ahead for months. We talk about why the sacraments are not "super-added" to simple gospel faith, but are integral to it.

    Clean My Space interview with Melissa Maker!

    Clean My Space interview with Melissa Maker!

    Gomer got another YouTube religion: clean my space. So while Luke is away, I decided to email my favorite YouTubers and chat about their life, work, and success. Melissa was the first to get back to me and she does not disappoint. We talk cleaning, our hatred of it, how it can ruin marriages, and then practical products and tips on actually cleaning. It's like therapy.

Symbolism

Have you checked out Jonathan Pageau’s podcast, the Symbolic World? His whole focus is on how the modern West has lost sight of the symbolic, opting instead for what can be “proven,” counted, etc.
