A Catholic podcast brought to you by the Archdiocese of Regina where we attempt to navigate this winding road of faith in Jesus Christ so that we might know him more intimately, love him more profoundly and together serve him more deeply in our daily lives.

Show Snippet: "David Clayton wrote this book, it's called "The Way of Beauty" and he does two or three chapters just on proportion, and symmetry, and harmony...that's a very Catholic perspective."
The Language of Pain: The Psalms and Mental Health
Deacon Eric Gurash discusses the healing grace in speaking our pain out loud and the role the Psalms can play in helping us to do this.
Show Snippet: "God understands what the UCLA study and others like it indicate; speaking our feelings of abandonment, powerlessness, fear, and even anger out loud can be the exact antidote we need."
Resurrection Part 2 - Resurrection and the New Creation
Conversing about resurrected bodies, the end of history, and new creations. Join the discussion in this part 2 of 2, this week on the Thinking Faith Catholic Podcast!
Show Snippet: "John takes all these things which we imagine in the indefinite future; judgment, exaltation, whatever, and he makes them happen right now...and its the same thing when Jesus says 'I'm the Resurrection' - yeah we know our brother will be raised somewhere down the line and he's like, 'No, you're lookin at it.'"
Resurrection Part 1 - Resurrection and the Christian Claim
In this part 1 of a two-part conversation on the Resurrection, Deacon Eric and Dr. Brett discuss the intricacies of that most unusual of Christian claims, belief in the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, and of our own lives.

Middle Earth, Magisterium, And Modernity With Guest Frederic Heidemann - Part 3
Guest Fredric Heidemann discusses his written work with Word on Fire ministries on modernity, secular humanism, and the pitfalls inherent in breaking with a Judeo-Christian worldview.
Show Snippet: "You're assuming all sorts of things about the moral life...all these things and it's like, this is what makes us fundamentally human but they're just utterly ungrounded in that 'detached from religion' universe."
Middle Earth Magisterium And Modernity with Guest Fredric Heidemann - Part 2
We continue with Fredric Heidemann of Word on Fire discussing his conversion from staunch atheist to Catholic.
Show Snippet: "The Catholic Church was the patron of all these arts, the Catholic Church was doing all this...and the Universities, and sponsoring all this education; and I think "man, I can't seem to get away from the Catholic Church!"...and I was reading through my history course, I took AP History, and I thought "if you were going to be Christian, why wouldn't you be Catholic?""
