Papal Heresy and Loss of Office – SSPX Interview Series | Fr. MacGillivray

Today we’re speaking with Fr. William MacGillivray on a topic that has gained renewed attention in recent days – the question of the possibility of a heretical pope. What happens if a pope speaks heresy? This has been a topic of controversy over the course of the pontificate of Pope Francis, and it has only grown following a recent audience given by the Holy Father where he indicated that the Catholic Church includes heretics, apostates, etc.

The Five Deaths of the Faith – I: Chesterton on the Church in Crisis

Fr. Paul Franks starts our mini-series on G.K. Chesterton’s “Five Deaths of the Faith” from his book “The Everlasting Man” by reading this chapter, and explaining why this section of Chesterton’s book is so important.

Sacraments #7: Are the Mass and the Eucharist the Same Thing? w/ Fr. Paul Robinson

Father Paul Robinson will join us to discuss Holy Eucharist. In this first of three episodes on the Blessed Sacrament, Father will explain to us the relationship between the Sacrifice of the Mass and the Holy Eucharist, then how the Eucharist is distinct from all the other sacraments, yet still intimately related to it. Next we’ll look at the importance of the Mass, and finally, we’ll see how the Faithful are meant to participate in the Mass – the Priest is performing the action, but there is an aspect of the priesthood that is shared with the Faithful – how are we supposed to participate in the Mass?

Sacraments #6: Why No One Cares About Confession Anymore – With Fr. David Sherry

Today we’ll look at the new understanding of the Sacrament of Penance. To do that, we’re going to take a step back, and see how much of the hierarchy in the Church today sees sin differently, or at least there’s a different emphasis. Then we’ll see how that impacts the Sacrament of Penance. We’ll also take a moment to see how the rite has changed.

Sacraments #5: Why Do We Confess Our Sins to a Priest? With Fr. David Sherry

We’ll take a magnifying glass to Penance today. To do that, we’ll start by looking at the concept of sin itself. Then we’ll look at the penitent, and the priest. What is Father looking for when he asks us those questions in the Confessional? And why do we have to do a penance afterwards? Fr. Sherry will walk us through the traditional form of the Sacrament of Penance

Why the Family Meal is Vital for Catholics – Questions with Father #29 w/ Fr. Gardner

On this episode, we’re happy to welcome Father Nicholas Gardner for the first time, to answer a question about the family meal – the question was concerning whether or not it’s really that important. The answer, yes. But Father will explain how it’s not just good for the family, but it’s good for the practice of virtue as well, and how this simple action can keep a family stronger, closer, and holier.

Sacraments #4: Why the New Rite of Baptism is Deficient

Father Wiseman will join us again, this time to look at the New Rite of Baptism. While the sacrament in both the old and the new rites are valid, nearly every other aspect of the new Rite – all the sacramentals, blessings, prayers, and exorcisms, have either been removed or drastically changed. Why? And if these things have been removed or changed, what has replaced them?

Sacrament Series #3: The Traditional Rite of Baptism w/ Fr. Wiseman

Father Alexander Wiseman, professor at St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary is joining us for the next two episodes, first to look at the Traditional Rite of Baptism. As you’ll see, it is so much more than simply pouring water, and saying a few words of the formula. The Church has filled the ritual with exorcisms, symbolism, and graces for the benefit of the new Christian being Baptized.
