The Global Philosopher: Should Borders Matter?. Michael Sandel explores the philosophical justifications made for national borders. Using a pioneering state-of-the-art studio at the Harvard Business School, Professor Sandel is joined by 60 participants from over 30 countries in a truly global digital space. Is there any moral distinction between a political refugee and an economic migrant? If people have the right to exit a country, why not a right to enter? Do nations have the right to protect the affluence of their citizens? And is there such a thing as a 'national identity'? These are just some of the questions addressed by Professor Sandel in this first edition of The Global Philosopher.Audience producer: Louise ColettaProducer: David EdmondsEditor: Richard Knight(Image taken by Rose Lincoln)

You can support Pints With Aquinas here: Patreon.com/pwa --- Here's what Aquinas had to say about homosexuality (among other things): Wherever there occurs a special kind of deformity whereby the venereal act is rendered unbecoming, there is a determinate species of lust. This may occur in two ways: First, through being contrary to right reason, and this is common to all lustful vices; secondly, because, in addition, it is contrary to the natural order of the venereal act as becoming to the human race: and this is called "the unnatural vice." This may happen in several ways. First, by procuring pollution, without any copulation, for the sake of venereal pleasure: this pertains to the sin of "uncleanness" which some call "effeminacy." Secondly, by copulation with a thing of undue species, and this is called "bestiality." Thirdly, by copulation with an undue sex, male with male, or female with female, as the Apostle states (Romans 1:27): and this is called the "vice of sodomy." Fourthly, by not observing the natural manner of copulation, either as to undue means, or as to other monstrous and bestial manners of copulation. ST II-II, Q. 154, A. 11.

Rank #2: Beware of Lukewarm Christianity!. In America, most of us do not have any big needs.

Rank #1: 08/11/19 Living By Faith. Homily from the Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time.A disciple is a decision-maker.Faith is more than belief. It “acts”. It can be seen. In fact, what we choose reveals our faith. And our decisions shape our lives, here on earth and in eternity.

Rank #2: 10/29/17 Enough: Never Enough. Homily from the Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time.So many people feel like they can never do enough. In life, in relationships, in their faith. Because of this, people try to do everything and then beat themselves up over the fact that they are not able to do everything. But doing everything was never the goal. The goal, given by Jesus, is to love God with all. The question we are left with is therefore not “How can I do everything?”, but “How can I do the one thing that will grow love?”Mass Readings from October 29, 2017:Exodus 22:20-26Psalm 18:2-3, 3-4, 47, 511 Thessalonians 1:5-10Matthew 22:34-40Listen to more homilies...TO DOWNLOAD THE BIBLE STUDY TAP ON THIS LINK OR COPY THE FOLLOWING LINK IN YOUR INTERNET BROWSER (Chrome, Firefox, Safari):http://bulldogcatholic.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/Enough_Never-Enough.pdf

Rank #1: Talking Porn with Matt Fradd – Episode 71. Matt Fradd author of, The Porn Myth, joins us on The Catholic Man ShowCheck out Matt's Podcasts: Integrity Restored and Pints with AquinasThis episode of The Catholic Man Show was sponsored by a Council of Man member: Dr. Michael Malloy. Thank you for all of your support!The Porn Myth is a non-religious response to the commonly held belief that pornography is a harmless or even beneficial pastime. Author Matt Fradd draws on the experience of porn performers and users, and the expertise of neurologists, sociologists, and psychologists to demonstrate that pornography is destructive to individuals, relationships, and society. He provides insightful arguments, supported by the latest scientific research, to discredit the fanciful claims used to defend and promote pornography.This book explains the neurological reasons porn is addictive, helps individuals learn how to be free of porn, and offers real help to the parents and the spouses of porn users. Because recent research on pornography's harmful effects on the brain validates the experiences of countless porn users, there is a growing wave of passionate individuals trying to change the pro-porn cultural norm-by inspiring others to pursue real love and to avoid its hollow counterfeit.Matt Fradd and this book are part of that movement, which is aiding the many men and women who are seeking a love untainted by warped perceptions of intimacy and rejecting the influence of porn in their lives.MAN DRINK: Oban 14 year ScotchMAN GEAR: The HammerMAN TOPIC: PornographyWe would love to hear your feedback!

Rank #1: 086: Dr. Brant Pitre Blows Your Mind on Mary. I've got ten bucks that says you've never heard a lot of this stuff. When I was coming into the Church 20 years ago, I struggled mightily with the Virgin Mary. Partly, it was because I couldn't find Marian doctrine and devotion in Sacred Scripture.I was blind.Eventually, I came to realize how deeply Mary is woven into the fabric of the sacred text once you know how to really read the Bible.But Brant Pitre just blew my mind on a few things I'd never heard.(That's saying something given the fact that I've produced an entire series on Our Lady.)You're going to love this.So sit back and enjoy a wide-ranging, but pinpoint discussion on some incredible truths about Mary that will make you marvel at the handiwork of God.Among other things we discuss:The deep connection between Israel's Ark of the Covenant and MaryHow the Book of Numbers provides evidence of Mary's Perpetual Virginity and why Joseph was abstinent...so cool!Scriptural proof that Mary could've easily made a vow of virginity (as the Church Fathers teach)How the Collyridians (you've heard of them, right?) prove Catholics aren't Marian idolatersWhy John calls himself the "beloved disciple" and how it relates to MaryThis is one of the best interviews I've ever had on the Art of Catholic.

People spend a lot of money every year tracing their family tree (hoping it forks!).As Christians, we should desire to know our family tree, too.

We should want to know our history.Now's our chance.In this Art of Catholic episode, I'm featuring the first half of Lesson One of The Bible and the Church Fathers.

While I wrote the study, much of it is based upon Mike Aquilina's book The Fathers of the Church (3rd edition).As I mentioned, what you're about to hear is part 1 of Lesson One, which is titled Introduction to the Fathers. In my next episode, I'll have part 2.For now, pour yourself a nice tall cup of coffee, sit back, and enjoy...God bless!Matthew“All who have been lost were lost because they did not pray.” St. Alphonsus Liguori.

He shares personal stories from his relationship with St. Pio. St. Padre Pio Communion Prayer: Stay with me, Lord, for it is necessary to have you present so that I do not forget You. You know how easily I abandon You Stay with me, Lord, for You are my life and without You I am without fervor. Stay with me, Lord, for You are my light and without You I am in darkness. Stay with me, Lord, so that I hear Your voice and follow You. Stay with me, Lord, for I desire to love You very much and alway be in Your company. Stay with me, Lord, if You wish me to be faithful to You. Stay with me, Lord, as poor as my soul is I want it to be a place of consolation for You, a nest of Love. Stay with me, Jesus, for it is getting late and the day is coming to a close and life passes, death, judgment and eternity approach. It is necessary to renew my strenth, so that I will not stop along the way and for that, I need You. It is getting late and death approaches, I fear the darkness, the temptations, the dryness, the cross, the sorrows. O how I need You, my Jesus, in this night of exile! Stay with me tonight, Jesus, in life with all its dangers, I need You. Let me recognize You as Your disciples did at the breaking of the bread, so that the Eucharistic Communion be the Light which disperses the darkness, the force which sustains me, the unique joy of my heart. Stay with me, Lord, because at the hour of my death, I want to remain united to You, if not by Communion, at least by grace and love. Stay with me, Lord, for it is You alone I look for, Your Love, Your Grace, Your Will, Your Heart, Your Spirit, because I love You and ask no other reward but to love You more and more. With a firm love, I will love You with all my heart while on earth and continue to love You perfectly during all eternity. Amen.

Rank #2: Luke hits peak frustration. HEY BISHOPS: Seek justice, not just forgiveness... SHOW NOTESLinks:What to make of the Catholic reaction to McCarrick and the Pennsylvania grand jury report — This extraordinary turn of events bears repeating. In 2014, a bishop allowed a priest who had been charged with criminal sexual abuse of a child to serve as the canon lawyer for another priest charged with criminal sexual abuse of a child. Apparently, no one in Szatkowski’s religious community, the Diocese of Allentown, or the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith questioned the wisdom of that plan. Anyone who finds it difficult to understand the anger and resentment of Catholics toward their bishops in recent weeks need look no further than that story.Cardinal Wuerl named in Pennsylvania grand jury report, responds to criticism — “While I understand this report may be critical of some of my actions, I believe the report confirms that I acted with diligence, with concern for the victims and to prevent future acts of abuse. I sincerely hope that a just assessment of my actions, past and present, and my continuing commitment to the protection of children will dispel any notions otherwise made by this report.”Denver archbishop reflects on McCarrick abuse crisis — Archbishop Aquila said the Church’s abuse scandals originate from complacency, and a culture influenced by the sexual revolution.“We must recognize that complacency about evil and sin is present both in the Church and the world and has led us to where we are today. This culture of complacency among clergy and laity must come to an end!”“Sadly, too many, both clergy and lay, have listened more to the world than to Christ and the Church when it comes to human sexuality.”What did Wuerl know about alleged abuser- and how did he respond? — Washington D.C., Aug 15, 2018 / 04:00 pm (CNA).- Cardinal Donald Wuerl and the Diocese of Pittsburgh say that when the former Pittsburgh bishop approved the transfer of a priest accused of serial sexual abuse, he was unaware of the allegations made against the priest. The transfer is described in the Aug. 14 report issued by a Pennsylvania grand jury charged with investing clerical sexual abuse in six Catholic dioceses.
