TF42: Thinking About Annulments with Marriage Tribunal Case Instructor Joan Myers

This week Eric and Brett welcome Joan Myers from the Archdiocese of Regina’s Marriage Tribunal office to discuss the marriage annulment process. We’ll examine some of the most common misconceptions about annulments, and look at some of the nitty-gritty details about the process itself.  We’ll also be looking at the kinds of things couples can do even before the wedding day itself, to lay a solid foundation on which to build a lasting marriage. What to do before you say… Read more

TF41: Can We Say Anything Else About The Trinity?

Is the Trinity really an unfathomable mystery? Did we exhaust all our material last week? Does any of this have any real application to our daily lives? And what the heck is a Filioque…and if you’ve got one, is there a cure? These questions and more get answered in part two of our series on the Trinity – wherein we also quite intentionally ignore the fact that we’ve done only two episodes on…the Trinity. Also this week – your last… Read more

The one thing I’ll add to all the Trump-parsing

Since the rise of The Donald, journalists and analysts have been racing to keep up with the tumult in his wake – from the already breathless hype of the 24-hour news cycle, which may perversely see him as something of a boon, to the somber head-scratching of some of the more thoughtful commentators.  Without wanting to add to the noise, there is one thing my mind keeps coming back to, one glaring thing that much of the dissection of words… Read more

A short prayer

Lord, what is man that you are mindful of him? Or the son of man that you should care for him? For you have made him little less than the angels, setting him over the wonders of Your creation, to tend and to care for them, to study them and to learn Your ways. Lord, make me a worthy steward of Your creation, guide me in the paths of Your righteousness, and make me an overflowing vessel of your love…. Read more

TF40: Can We Say Anything About The Trinity?

We begin a two-part series on the Trinity this week on Thinking Faith! It’s one of the most central doctrines of our Christian faith and can be found etched in our prayer, sacramental and liturgical lives and yet, it can be one of the most challenging doctrines for Christiane to speak about with others. This week we’ll delve into the mystery that is the Trinity. We discuss what it actually means to call the Trinity a Mystery, we’ll ask hard hitting questions like “Is… Read more

More Life Imitating Art

Recognize this story? An incompetent leader covers up his incompetence with arrogance and bravado, is hypercritical of anyone who annoys him or gets in his way but makes constant excuses for himself, covers his own mistakes by blaming those around him, acts brashly authoritarian and always certain of being in the right yet at odd moments desperate to be liked, distracts from substantial concerns with petty and far-flung accusations, makes ethically dodgy demands for personal loyalty, flies off the handle when confronted, and progresses… Read more

TF39: The God Of The Shack

The movie The Shack hit theaters mid-Lent and with it arose much discussion surrounding some of the feminine imagery – for God the Father and God the Holy Spirit – used in both the film and the book. Following on the tails of last week’s ‘Heresy’ episode, this week Eric and Brett take a look at the kinds of language and images that can be used in reference to God. We regularly call God ‘Father’, can God be ‘Mother’ too? And what… Read more

Good News, Everyone!

Vox Nova is pleased to present the following guest post by Ben Johnson. When I joined the Catholic Worker movement it was very easy to believe initially that my task was to aid people in finding the stability offered by the governmental and economic systems we currently have. Find a job. Get a car. Get an apartment. These are the things that many expect the Catholic Workers to be encouraging our guests to acquire. I have found in my time… Read more
