Author interview with Marcus Grodi on his book, ”Life from Our Land”

Ignatius Press Podcast

Join us as Kathryn Lopez from the National Review Institute interviews Marcus Grodi, author of Life from Our Land: https://www.ignatius.com/Life-from-Our-Land-P1484.aspx Voices from every direction beckon us, even push us, toward better and faster technology, with the promise of more wealth, more pleasure, and, consequently, more happiness. But have we become so bewitched by the siren song of material progress that we've lost the ability not just to achieve, but to discern what true happiness is? What criteria do we use to plan for the future, for retirement? At the end of our earthly lives, how will we measure our fruitfulness? In this book Marcus Grodi discusses what he and his family discovered, mostly by surprise, after moving from the city to twenty-five acres of Ohio farmland. This move involved a radical shift in priorities for all of them, but mostly it helped them to discover some critical truths about our relationship to nature and to nature's Creator that apply regardless of where a person lives. He offers wonderful reflections on his going- back-to-the-land experience as a metaphor for drawing closer to God.

Wrapping up the Epistle of St. James – Marcus Grodi and Ken Hensley

Deep in Scripture Radio

Marcus Grodi and Ken Hensley conclude their study of the Epistle of St. James by giving a larger look at the perspective on trials and priorities that we hear about in this rich letter from the New Testament. After recalling the opening verses of James, which focus on perseverance in the face of testing, Marcus and Ken look at the ways in which the COVID-19 pandemic provides a fresh opportunity to revisit how James reminds us of what’s truly important in the sight of God, and why the call to holiness remains, no matter what circumstances the Church may face at any point in history.

TDB 11 The Conversion of Marcus Grodi part 6

ThornCrown Network

We conclude our analysis of Marcus Grodi’s conversion from Presbyterian pastor to Roman Catholic apologist, as he invokes the writings of Clement of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, Irenæus of Lyons and Cyprian of Carthage to provide evidence of Roman and Papal primacy in the early church, and that the Roman bishop and congregation served as the standard of apostolic truth and unity. What we find instead is a collegiality and fraternity of bishops and congregations throughout the known world at the time, as the many bishops exchanged letters of encouragement, admonition and fraternal affection between congregations. And more often than not, those bishops scattered throughout the world had to restrain the bishop of Rome as he stumbled into error, propagated heresy, wavered in indecision and compromised the unity of the church through his impudence, arrogance and petulance. It was the Scriptures, rather, that served as the standard of truth and unity in the early church, and instead of looking to Rome as a standard, the surrounding bishops rather had to bring the Scriptures to bear on the errors of the Roman bishop.Notes:Clement of Rome To the CorinthiansJames A. Kleist’s 1949 translation of Clement, to the Corinthians, paragraph 63":“You certainly will give us the keenest pleasure if you prove obedient to what we have written through the Holy Spirit, and extirpate the lawless passion of your jealousy in accordance with the pleas we have made in this letter for peace and concord.” J. B. Lightfoot’s 1890 translation of Clement, to the Corinthians, paragraph 63:“Ye will give us great joy and gladness, if ye render obedience unto the things written by us through the Holy Spirit, and root out the unrighteous anger of your jealousy, according to the entreaty which we have made for peace and concord in this letter;”John Keith’s 1896 translation of Clement, to the Corinthians, paragraph 63:“Joy and gladness will you afford us, if you become obedient to the words written by us and through the Holy Spirit root out the lawless wrath of your jealousy according to the intercession which we have made for peace and unity in this letter.” Charles Hoole’s 1885 translation of Clement, to the Corinthians, paragraph 63:“For joy and rejoicing will ye afford us if, becoming obedient to the things that have been written by us, ye put an end, by the suggestion of the Holy Spirit, to the unlawful wrath of your discord,”Ignatius of AntiochEpistle to the Ephesians Epistle to the Magnesians Epistle to the Trallians Epistle to the Romans Epistle to the Philadelphians Epistle to the Smyrnæans Epistle to PolycarpIrenæus of Lyons, Against HeresiesRoman Catholic Encyclopedia, Pope St. EleutheriusCyprian of CarthageEpistle 25, From the Roman Confessors Epistle 39, To the People of Carthage, Concerning the Schism of Felicissimus Epistle 43, To the Roman Confessors, that They Should Return to UnityEpistle 45, To Cyprian, from Cornelius, on the Return of the Confessors to Unity Epistle 49, Maximus and the Other Confessors to Cyprian, About Their Return from SchismEpistle 51, To Antonianus About Cornelius and NovatianEpistle 54, To Cornelius, Concerning Fortunatus and Felicissimus, or Against the HereticsEpistle 67, To the Clergy and People Abiding in Spain, Concerning Basilides and MartialEpistle 72, To Jubaianus, Concerning the Baptism of HereticsEpistle 73, To Pompey, Against the Epistle of Stephen About the Baptism of HereticsEpistle 74, Firmilian, Bishop of Caesarea in Cappadocia, to Cyprian, Against the Letter of StephenTreatise I, On the Unity of the Church
