Join Michael Voris as he discusses the damage done in recent years to the Bride of Christ. The ruptures that wound the unity of Christ’s Body – here we must distinguish heresy, apostasy, and schism (cf. CIC, can. 751) – do not occur without human sin: “Where there are sins, there are also divisions, schisms, heresies, and disputes. Where there is virtue, however, there also are harmony and unity, from which arise the one heart and one soul of all believers” (CCC: 817).read more
The Cross is perhaps the hardest thing about Christianity – it is so difficult for us to accept. Join Michael Voris as he explores the meaning of the cross. “Jesus, the Son of God, also himself suffered the death that is part of the human condition. Yet, despite his anguish as he faced death, he accepted it in an act of complete and free submission to his Father’s will (cf. Mk 14:33-34; Heb 5:7-8). The obedience of Jesus has transformed the curse of death into a blessing (cf. Rom 5:19-21; CCC: 1009).read more
Sometimes all Catholics suffer pain and loss, sometimes God can seem very far from us. This episode addresses the issue of suffering – both for individuals within the Church and for the world as a whole. Answering questions such as ‘Where is God when it hurts?’, this is an episode not be missed.
This video is well done to challenge the purpose of our existence and the reason to look at the relationship of abortion to freedom. “Man’s freedom is limited and fallible. In fact, man failed. He freely sinned. By refusing God’s plan of love, he deceived himself and became a slave of sin. This first alienation engendered a multitude of others. From its outset, human history attests the wretchedness and oppression born of human heart in consequences of the abuse of freedom” (CCC: 1739). “The exercise of freedom does not imply a right to say or do everything. It is false to maintain that man, “the subject of this freedom,” is “an individual who is fully-sufficient and whose finality is the satisfaction of his own interests in the enjoyment of earthly goods” (CDF, instruction, Libertatis conscientia 13). Moreover, the economic, social, political, and cultural conditions that are needed for a just exercise of freedom are too often disregarded or violated. Such situations of blindness and injustice injure the moral life and involve the strong as well as the weak in the temptation to sin against charity. By deviating from the moral law man violates his own freedom, becomes imprisoned within himself, disrupts neighborly fellowship, and rebels against divine truth” (CCC: 1740).read more
This video is done well by Michelle Yax about the reason to look at the morality of stem cell research, and the Church’s position on it. “Research or experimentation on the human being cannot legitimate acts that are in themselves contrary to the dignity of persons and to the moral law. The subjects’ potential consent does not justify such acts. Experimentation on human beings is not morally legitimate if it exposes the subject’s life or physical and psychological integrity to disproportionate or avoidable risks. Experimentation on human beings does not conform to the dignity of the person if it takes place without the informed consent of the subject or those who legitimately speak for him” (CCC: 2295).read more
Michael Voris presents a talk in Colorado about these two interconnected concepts: Masculinity and Catholicism. “All Christians by the example of their lives and the witness of their word, wherever they live, have an obligation to manifest the new man which they have put on in Baptism and to reveal the power of the Holy Spirit by whom they were strengthened at Confirmation” (CCC: 2472).read more
There are many so called ‘Churches’ out there… but which one is Christ’s? “This is the sole Church of Christ, which in the Creed we profess to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic” (LG 8). These four characteristics, inseparably linked with each other, indicate essential features of the Church and her mission. The Church does not possess them of herself; it is Christ who, through the Holy Spirit, makes his Church one, holy, catholic and apostolic, and it is he who calls her to realize each of these qualities” (CCC: 811).read more
