Matthew has long equated the Catholic lay apostolate with the ideal of chivalry. On this program, Matthew reviews how this is reflected in the Vatican II document Apostolicum Actuositatem.

February 18, 2014 – Fr. Sauppe

Fr Sauppe’s 2013 article about the demographic winter that forced closing of his parish school received lots of attention because it brought focus to a national problem affecting most communities and the Church–not enough children. See www.onemoresoul.com/pdfs.
If the AVERAGE woman in a country consistently births fewer than 2.1 children in her life time, the country’s population will eventually decline. This population shrinkage is already in process throughout Europe.

In “The Church in the Modern World as I lived It”, The Bellarmine Forum (Winter 2013), Father shares his experience as a seminarian and priest/pastor in the post Vatican Council II Catholic Church. His experience verifies that some of the good of VCII was sabotaged by efforts to hitch change agendas to VCII’s call to open the windows and let fresh air into the Church. Unfortunately, the infiltration included a “progressive wind” and the “smoke of Satan” that joined other events to weaken the Church in modern times.

Fr Sauppe is taking steps to blunt these evil forces and turn his small part of Church back to a renewed sense of God in the liturgy and the family. In this effort, he draws encouragement from the 1985 Extraordinary Synod on “The Twentieth Anniversary of the Conclusion of the Second Vatican Council”.

Since Father is also a Mariologist (working toward the STD at the International Marian Research Institute), I can ask him Mary is guiding the Church in the Modern World.

March 25, 2013 – Mrs. Aileen Blachowski, Endow Facilitator

Host Kathleen dialogues with Aileen Blachowski on “Endow: Educating on the Nature and Dignity of Women”. Aileen shares how her vocation as wife and mother (of six children) is profoundly blessed by “Endow Groups” where women discover their God-given dignity and grow to understand their role in humanizing and transforming society through the service of love. They discuss the synergy between “Magnificat, A Ministry to Catholic Women” and “Endow Groups”, both of which enjoy widespread ecclesial support of bishops and priests in over 90 dioceses.

Evange-lies and Misconceptions Part 2 – September 5, 2012

Picking up from where we left off from the previous episode, we will continue to explore the many reasons/excuses (what I call Evange-lies and Misconcep-tions) that Catholics use to justify their failure to evangelize and will seek to counter these with the Church’s authentic teaching on Evangelization as found in the Scriptures, the New Catechism, the documents of the Second Vatican Council and Papal documents.

On this program Mark and Frances speak again about the importance of Mary in the life of St Raphael Kalinowski. They also discuss the role he played in helping to bring unity between the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox churches. Finally, they discuss how St. Kalinowski was actually a forerunner for the teachings of the Second Vatican Council.
