Your host, John B. Manos, discusses how the fear of causing schism, offending people, or driving people out of the Church has caused us to become comfortable with error in the Church. This is the detent with the Devil at the table. In this stagnation, he covers some of the things that are upside-down today…

  • Who are the dreamers?
  • With whom should we be building bridges?
  • Who is marginalized?
  • Where are the real dreamers?

  • Fear of Offending God must before all else, or, one will lose one’s soul! “If you love me, keep my Commandments!” John 14:15

  • For what it’s worth, I much prefer blog articles to podcasts, especially when the authors are erudite like Mr. Manos and his guest contributors. Just a personal preference. It’s one thing to half-listen to a bunch of 50-something Star Wars nerds discussing variations in Han Solo action figures. If you miss something, no big deal.

    Bellarmine deals with much more serious-minded topics and their coverage often makes it worthwhile to save the articles as well. Podcasts don’t lend themselves very well to being quoted, either.

    • Spiffy, thanks be to God for your complement! So, you tempt me to talk about Star Wars in the next episode! Hah!
      I was considering repurposing this episode because many people have said it was good. I like the comments because it surprised me in a good way and helps me figure out what hits home and makes it worth listening. 🙂

      I hear you that you like to see it written out. I’ll see what I can do!
