    What is Christian in Christianity?

    What is Christian in Christianity?

    How can faith be relevant in today’s culture to anyone; young or old, Christian or otherwise? By examining this question across a wide spectrum of the aspects of life: the arts, education, parish life, and politics, Monsignor Lorenzo Albacete served as a witness for how Christians can engage with the world fully without losing sight of what is Christian in Christianity.

    On the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the Monsignor’s passing, the Albacete Forum and the Catholic Information Center invited the public for a discussion with Kathryn Lopez, Fr. Lee Fangmeyer, and Helen Whitney on what his writings and perspectives offer to our engagement with the current cultural, social, and religious dialogues we face daily.

    Authentic Freedom in the Novels of Graham Greene

    The Thomistic Institute and Catholic Information Center present a lecture by Prof. Frederick Bauerschmidt of Loyola University Maryland titled “Authentic Freedom in the Novels of Graham Greene.”

    This lecture will explore how the genre of narrative is uniquely useful in showing the nature of true freedom. Three of Graham Green’s “Catholic novels,” The Power and the Glory (1940), The Heart of the Matter (1948), and The End of the Affair (1951) will be discussed as examples of the narrative depiction of the interplay of human freedom and divine grace.

    Nationalism: Virtue or Vice?

    Dr. Samuel Goldman, Assistant Professor of Political Science at The George Washington University, and Ramesh Ponnuru, journalist and visiting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, engage in a spirited debate on the virtues and vices seen in the recent rise of nationalist sentiment in the West. Can loyalty to one’s nation promote human flourishing? How should Catholics understand nationalism in the context of solidarity, subsidiarity, human dignity, and the common good?

    From Fire by Water: My Journey to the Catholic Faith

    From Fire by Water: My Journey to the Catholic Faith

    Listen as Sohrab Ahmari recounts this unlikely passage, from the strident Marxism and atheism of a youth misspent on both sides of the Atlantic to a moral and spiritual awakening prompted by the Mass. At once a young intellectual’s finely crafted self-portrait and a life story at the intersection of the great ideas and events of our time, Sohrab marks the debut of a compelling new Catholic voice.

The Best Catholic Podcast Out There

Informed speakers or panels discuss issues of the day. Wonderful for those who want to better understand current
social issues through the Church.

I'm giving 5 stars for content and sound quality. But is it possible to get dual sound? It only plays through one side of my headphones and I'm getting a headache.

Excellent content, terrible sound quality

I would love to listen to this, but the recording blasts one ear and completely excludes the other. I’ve tried to knuckle through because there are some incredible speakers, but I get a headache after ten minutes. I really wish I could listen to this podcast!
