    Catholic Social Teaching and the Family --Bo and Bud--01/30/19

    Bo and Bud discuss Catholic social teaching in relation to the family--how economies should be structured to serve the family and not the other way around. Per Catholic teaching, the family is the basic unit of community life, such that no society can be truly healthy without fostering conditions within which the family can thrive. All that being said, the family is not simply the insular nuclear family. Rather, families need the support of the broader community and should, in turn, do all they can to strengthen communal bonds at both the neighborhood and city-wide levels.

    Conversion and The Common Good -- 01/23/19 -- Dr. R.J. Snell

    An interview with Dr. R.J. Snell, Director of the Center on the University and Intellectual Life at the Witherspoon Institute, talking about his new book "Mind, Heart, and Soul: Intellectuals and the Path to Rome." We explore not only features of conversion and the intellectual life, but the way in which conversion contributes to the Common Good and is truly a communal effort on the part of the Church.

    Newman and "Full Sanctity" -- 01-16-19 -- Dr. David Delio

    We have Dr. David Delio, President of the Newman Idea and UCG all-star, back on the show. With the canonization of John Henry Newman on the horizon, having two Newman Scholars in the house allows us to hear fantastic stories regarding Newman's "full sanctity," not only the intellectual life he is so well known for, but his concern for the poor and lost souls.

    Foolish Gratitude at the End of Time: Bo and Bud discuss “the end of time,” both liturgically (the last week before Advent) and historically (the time after the coming of Christ) and how this shifts both our love and attachment to this world.
