Podcast cover
Read more
The grace of the Year of Faith is meant not only to help Catholics in their personal following of the Lord, but also to impact their families, parishes, communities, and societies, strengthening them in faith to become the salt, light, and leaven of all of society. In the midst of secularist attempts to reduce faith to private behavior, both the Pope and the U.S. Bishops have been calling Catholics to a truly consequential faith that works through love (Gal 5:6). In this talk, Father Landry will examine how the Year of Faith is meant to impact the public witness of both Catholic individuals and Catholic institutions.

Father Roger LandryFr. Roger Landry writes and speaks widely on the thought of Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI and on difficult and controversial issues of Catholicism to priests, religious, students and at conferences and parishes. He is the national chaplain for Catholic Voices, an organization founded in early 2012 to train and send forth bright Catholic lay spokesmen to defend and promote Catholic teaching and practice in the public square. His writings, homilies, and lectures are available on catholicpreaching.com.

“What Did Philosophy Get from the Bible, and Why Should It Matter to Me?”

What does it mean to be a “person” and where does this concept come from? Most of us today would be surprised to learn that it comes from the Bible, and that philosophers did not discover it on their own. Hear why and how this idea came to take shape, and what might become of it, and of us, if we forget where we first learned it.
