Surviving Depressing Church News, Doom Porn, and Spiritual Vampires: BFP 006

In episode 6, Landon DePasquale and John B. Manos talk about the drag that depressing Church news can have on one’s spiritual life and how to avoid it.

You may not even realize how this problem creeps into your life…

  • Spiritual vampires and how they suck all the energy out of you by dragging you into an addictive loop of fear mongering.
  • “Doom Porn” as a commodity traded among people addicted to doomsday watch.
  • The illusory allure of it and how it entices you to join in.

They share clues on how to survive the daily onslaught and what you can do to make the Church better, stronger, and be happy knowing you helped.

How the news plays into a “strategy of tension” among right sided Catholics. Why progressives can present a single vision of the future Church (but traditionalists can’t and shouldn’t). Why it’s wrong to say that without the SSPX, there’d be no Latin Mass.

…and other topics here and there throughout!

  • Enjoyed the talk. Will need to listen to it again. I have to apply subsidiary to myself and not worry about the world other than pray that God’s will be done and accept what happens because God allows it to happen which in the end will be for His greater glory.

    A little surprised that St. Faustina wasn’t mentioned as her feast day was yesterday since the Rosary March in Poland is happening tomorrow in the Feast Day of Our Lady ofvthe Rosary.

    John, if you’re ever in the Cincinnati area, please send me an e-mail. I’d like to meet up with you.

    God bless.

    • Awesome! Thanks be to God.

      And yes on Cincy. I do get there frequently.

      I’m excited about the rosary at the border in Poland. I need to make a post about it!
