Show Snippet: "In English, hope means 'wishing'. "I hope the Roughriders will get a playoff spot..." and, I mean, that's nice, that's part of hope. But not by far the strength, the core, the heart of what hope means...in Latin 'expectare', in French 'esperance', same word. And it means, expectare, it means 'to wait for, and expect...'"
A Deacon's First Wedding - Part 2
Deacon Eric continues the discussion about what it was like to preside at the marriage of his daughter over the summer and how the vocation of marriage impacts not just married couples, but the world.
Show Snippet: "That's one of the reasons I chose to speak not just to my daughter and my new son-in-law about this vocational calling, this missionary nature of marriage, but I specifically addressed all couples that were gathered there to remember that there's a mission, there's a purpose for you being together..."
A Deacon's First Wedding - Part 1
This week on Thinking Faith, Deacon Eric discusses the profound summer experience of presiding not only at his first wedding as a Deacon but at the marriage of his daughter.
Show Snippet: "A lot of the questions, and I think legitimately, were from my daughter to me saying "Dad, do you actually think you can do that; officiate at my wedding without bursting into tears?" Because I can tend to get a little emotional..."
Summer Master Class On Eucharist - Part 9
We continue our Summer Masterclass on the Eucharist featuring a series of talks previously delivered by Dr. Brett Salkeld for the Archdiocese of San Francisco. This week's episode completes our masterclass and concludes last week's examination of liturgy in culture, life, and the Mass.
"If you want to make citizens for a consumer culture, you need people with low inhibitions because consumer culture doesn't like people who are self-possessed and self-controlled because they don't need to buy a bunch of garbage. What you need is people who have bad impulse control. Those are good consumers."
Summer Master Class On Eucharist - Part 8
We continue our Summer Masterclass on the Eucharist featuring a series of talks previously delivered by Dr. Brett Salkeld for the Archdiocese of San Francisco. This week's episode examines liturgy in culture, life, and the Mass.
"The culture isn't just feeding us evil, it's feeding us good in the wrong proportions or in the wrong perspective, and that throws us off. All the things we're addicted to, what are you addicted to? Work? Sex? Those are good! What are you looking for in your addiction? You're looking for something that that thing, it promises, but it can't deliver."
Summer Master Class On Eucharist - Part 7
We continue our Summer Masterclass on the Eucharist featuring a series of talks previously delivered by Dr. Brett Salkeld for the Archdiocese of San Francisco. This week's episode will conclude the topic of Real Presence and Ecumenical dialogue.
Show Snippet: "There's a misunderstanding that Catholics sometimes have that the reason protestants can't normally receive the Eucharist in a Catholic celebration of the Mass, is because they don't believe in Real Presence...that's not actually the reason."
