    #11770 AMA - Tim Staples

    #11770 AMA - Tim Staples

    Questions covered:

    04:26 – How can God be infinite if he became man in the Incarnation?
    18:10 – How do you respond to someone who says the Catholic Church got its traditions from the Roman Empire?
    28:28 – Is my understanding of faith and works correct?
    36:12 – The Catholic church teaches that in ongoing justification, works justify us and are not merely a sign. How is this different from a works-based salvation?
    47:12 – When James 3 says teachers will be judged more harshly, does he mean judged by God or by men?
    51:11 – Would it be sinful to read things formerly banned by the Church, like Machiavelli?

    #11769 Divorce and the Eucharist - Rose Sweet

    #11769 Divorce and the Eucharist - Rose Sweet

    Questions Covered:

    22:27 – A relative of mine just had his spouse leave him out of nowhere. How should we guide him towards hopeful reconciliation? 
    30:31 – If a couple is living in a sinful divorce, goes to confession, but then goes right back to that same lifestyle, do they have to confess again before receiving communion and keep doing that over and over? 
    33:58 – If your spouse had a previous marriage that was never annulled, and then they go through the annulment process, do you now need to get your marriage convalidated? 
    35:44 – My brother married outside the Church and got a divorce. Now he’s dating a Catholic, cohabitating with her, and receiving the Eucharist. Should I say anything? 
    42:01 – I was civilly married, then we had our marriage convalidated in the Church. My husband was a non-Christian. Now during our divorce he’s saying he never intended to become Catholic or raise our children Catholic. Is this grounds for annulment? 
    45:43 – If someone’s spouse dies, does she still need to get an annulment before marrying someone else? 
    49:12 – I’ve had two priests say it’s okay for me to date before I’ve had an annulment. Are they correct? 

    #11768 Ask Me Anything - Jimmy Akin

    #11768 Ask Me Anything - Jimmy Akin

    Questions Covered:

    01:55 – The Church Fathers have different interpretations of the unforgivable sin. How can we know the true meaning of that passage?
    10:50 – How do we reconcile the consecration to the Immaculate Heart with the accusations from Protestants that Catholics worship Mary?
    14:11 – Is it possible there were non-human civilizations on Earth before Adam and Eve?
    19:46 – I was surprised that Catechism 1856 names immoderate laughter and idle chatter as sins. Are they really sins?
    29:02 – It seems like near death experiences confirm that the soul is eternal and this life is just a passing form. Why doesn’t the Catholic Church deal with this instead of persisting with the idea of Hell to scare people into being good?
    40:54 – My family believes in Oneness theology. How might I convince them of the Trinity?
    47:24 – Can you obtain an indulgence now for someone who is not dead yet? And for getting an indulgence for 30 minutes of Eucharistic adoration, does it have to be the exposed Eucharist, or can it be in a closed tabernacle?
    53:17 -Are we obligated to fraternally correct others?

    #11767 Ask Me Anything - Jimmy Akin

    Questions Covered:

    05:21 – What is that Protestants have against Mary, and how can I give scriptural responses to their objection?
    13:55 – I am a comic book artist. I want to create comics that are appropriate but not sterile. What principles can guide me to have this balance?
    18:49 – How do we know for sure that the woman in Revelation 12 is Mary? It seems that part is really about Israel.
    23:50 – It seems like there is a lot of tension between the Vatican and the Latin Mass People. Do you think the Vatican should have a concordat with the TLM community to keep the conversation going?
    33:21 – Can you elaborate on the story of remote viewing Jesus that you mentioned a couple weeks ago?
    36:38 – What is the Catholic Church’s teaching about cremation? And can you spread the ashes?
    41:18 – Do you think there is any connection between the assassination attempt on Trump and the apparitions at Fatima? They both happened on July 13. And I’ve seen clips of a Protestant who supposedly prophesied the assassination attempt — do you think there is anything to this?
    51:24 – I’ve heard that the canonization of St. Josemaria Escriva was controversial because there were some negative testimonies that were not heard. What do you make of that situation? Can someone be canonized who shouldn’t be?

Accent

Why is Jimmy playing around with his accent? I know he’s from and now returned to the South, but the accent feels a bit like a performance.

Thank you thank you thank you!!

I don’t think my conversion would have been possible without Catholic Answers and the guys that are on the show. I can’t express how thankful I am for this wonderful resource that has led me to a place where I can receive the true body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ on every Lords Day! Such a wonderful ministry and surely a blessing to so many people that now worship Christ in the way He intended in the one true Church that Christ started. Thank you so much!
