Just War?

Just War?

May 17, 2022

This week we discuss with Dr Robert Haddad the Catholic Church's teaching regarding the conditions for a just war, and we dissect the conditions in detail to be able to discern correctly regarding this vital area. We proceed to discuss the situations in Ukraine and the Iraq war and Robert shares his interesting insights.

This is an episode not to miss, with some very interesting practical tools, which involve even breaking down war to your own personal defence and how to discern in any situation you find yourself in, if a war is what you should wage.

Why Be Catholic?

Why Be Catholic?

April 8, 2022

This week we speak with the Director of Catholic Answers, Tim Staples about his personal journey, combined with the Art of Apologetics to prove that the catholic Faith is the true religion of God on earth and the actual Church established by Jesus Christ himself.

Tim was a former Baptist and Assemblies of God Pastor after his Catholic friend in the United States Marines challenged him , which set him on a journey which led him to cross the tiber to the faith. Tim was the man who initially inspired George Manassa the host and founder of this show to study his way into the faith, so this episode has some sentimental significance.

From Anglican Bishop to Catholicism

From Anglican Bishop to Catholicism

March 24, 2022

This week we have former Anglican Bishop of Rochester, who came to the fullness of truth in the Catholic faith, now the Rev. Fr Nazir Ali. He is now a priest in the Ordinariate created by pope Benedict XVI in 2011 and currently teaches at Oxford University, and is president of OXTRAD and continues to contribute towards unity.

He has a profound story of how he once was working as Anglican Bishop to help Catholics and Anglicans reach unity, which facilitated his conviction to cross the tiber himself.

This is an episode not to be missed and a rich story which will leave you amazed.

Book Launch: Dying to Live - Reflections on Life After Death

Book Launch: Dying to Live - Reflections on Life After Death

February 27, 2022

This week we launch the new book Dying to Live - Reflections on Life After Death by John Flader. This is a spectacular book which takes the most vital questions of our existence and ponders on the origins of the world, the existence of a God, and most importantly what will happen when we die. In this book he attempts to make the case for the existence of meaning in our lives, the existence of the soul outside the body, and finally the existence of a deity.

He tackles this from a purely human perspective attracting all people to these questions. The remarkable parts of this book is that it draws on empirical evidence through the experience of people having a 'near death experience' and return to the body after. They leave us with much wisdom and data to draw upon, in making a decision regarding our own spiritual awareness. 

Towards the conclusion of the book, the additional extra cases are made for why Jesus also may provide us with more of this very key 'data' about the spiritual world. At least he would be world listening to! Then this 'Church' which he founded which has stood the test of time and preached the truth may also be worth considering. In no way does the book impose the faith upon the reader, but it impresses upon the human questions and makes the case from Science and Reason, which finally may open the reader to think on a supernatural level as well. However the natural human concerns of the existence of this world and life after death will be met for each person.

 

To summarise - Every Human being over the age of reason and capable of reading must read this book.

 

Biography of the Author

((St)) Valentine’s Day - Unpacked

((St)) Valentine’s Day - Unpacked

February 22, 2022

This week George and Akita Manassa go into great depths to study the life of St Valentine and look at the origins of the celebration associated with this holiday and how it become very commercialised, to the complete exclusion of the life of St Valentine. Our secular world has often forgotten the great men and women behind many of our well known celebrations.

There are some very insightful Tools in this episode if you find yourself alone this Valentines Day, or if you are simply sick of the commercial aspects which leave no room for authentic love. 

 

Wishing that everyone has a blessed Feast of St Valentine.

Political Influence Today

Political Influence Today

January 26, 2022

This week we discuss Political Influence which we as faithful should rightfully yield in our world today. We are called to be a beacon of hope and not a light kept to ourselves. We draw on the vast wisdom and experience of a very inspiring women who has fearlessly spent much of her life in public office, as a retired Member of the British Parliament. She is a convert from Anglicanism, during the time which the Church of England began to ordain women and modernise it's institution. We are proud to have the Rt Hon. Ann Widdecombe DSG.

Eastern Catholic Churches

Eastern Catholic Churches

January 20, 2022

This week we continue kick starting our year by heading East to our beloved Eastern Catholic Churches with expert on the subject Anthony Cleary. In this episode you will learn that the Catholic Church as a whole is not Just Latin, but is also Eastern. We will look at the history of the Roman Empire and then continue to show the origins of Eastern Catholicism in all the Churches (Maronite, Melkite, Armenian, Coptic...etc).

The take home message is to experience all the different EXPRESSIONS of the same Catholic Faith in what capacity you can. The beauty of our faith is it's oneness in belief but its liturgical and cultural expression can vary based on the cultural and liturgical adaption to a particular region.

The 1 Practical Tool is very important to look out for, and is a serious challenge that each person in the faith should take up.
