Off the Shelf 026 with Father Michael Kerper

episode-026-fr-michael-kerperFather Michael Kerper grew up in Philadelphia, attended Catholic schools as a boy, and then studied politics and economics at La-Salle University, labor relations at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and moral theology at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary in Emmitsburg, Maryland. Ordained in 1985 for the Diocese of Manchester, Father Kerper has worked as a parish priest throughout New Hampshire.

Father Kerper and I discuss his book from Sophia Institute Press A Priest Answers 27 Questions You Never Thought to Ask. The premise of the the book are questions and answers Father has collected and answered. These questions run the gambit some being obvious and others not so much. From Holding hands and kissing: Why does everyone do something different at Mass? to Do ghosts really exist? this book is an interesting resource. Listen in as Father and I cover how the book came about and we discuss the answers to a number of the questions found in its pages.
