Sacraments #14: Why Marriage is a Crucifying Sacrament w/ Fr. Loop

Today we’ll be looking at the basis of marriage. We’ll look at its institution, and we’ll also look a the purposes of marriage – are there some that are more important than others?

Sacraments #13: What’s Wrong with the Sacrament of the Sick? w/ Fr. Reuter

How Should We Properly Date? – Questions with Father #35 w/ Fr. Gardner

The world has a very different idea about dating – so much so that it’s properly known in the Catholic sense by an entirely different word – courtship.

This is an episode that every young man or woman should review before they begin any sort of dating — or courtship.

Interview: The Inspiring True Story of Fr. Marco Tilosanec

This past winter, we spoke with Father Marko Tilosanec, a Croatian priest who has a fascinating story. He was ordained a priest in the standard diocesan structure in Croatia – even before his ordination, he began to seek out more information about tradition. After his ordination, he experienced difficulties while attempting to follow his conscience in learning and celebrating the Latin Mass.
This prompted him to visit the society of saint Pius X seminary in Zaitzkofen, Germany… and eventually, to become a priest within the SSPX.
This is the story of one priest’s journey to tradition. But it’s also the story of attempting to bring tradition back to an entire country that was left behind – first by the Communists, then by the Modernists.
This is the story of Father Marko Tilosanec
