061: What is Apostolic Succession and Why Does it Matter? (w/ Bishop Thomas Dowd)

061: What is Apostolic Succession and Why Does it Matter? (w/ Bishop Thomas Dowd) May 27, 2020

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I’m joined by Bishop Thomas Dowd of the Archdiocese of Montreal to discuss incredibly important topic of apostolic succession.

Listen, and learn how the Catholic Church traces its authority, its succession of bishops, right back to the charge which Jesus gave his followers to “bind and loose.” Plus, we talk about the Jewish roots of the priesthood and why it’s important to have a body of bishops which can authoritatively explain the Bible and the Catholic Christian faith.

To find out more about Bishop Dowd you can visit his website or follow him on Twitter where he is active daily.
