Made for Love Ep. 81: The Marriage Catechumenate

Posted Jan. 14, 2022 by DOM No comments yet

Marriage prep varies widely from place to place. The marriage catechumenate is changing the way formation works for couples as they prepare to live out their life in Christ together. This responds to a call from Pope Francis, echoing JPII, in reforming sacramental catechesis. Richard Budd from the Diocese of Lansing is here to help explain what that means, how the kerygma plays into it, and how some practical angles usually go overlooked.

Coco (2017)

 

“[W]e must say that the essence and role of the family are in the final analysis specified by love. Hence the family has the mission to guard, reveal and communicate love, and this is a living reflection of and a real sharing in God’s love for humanity and the love of Christ the Lord for the Church His bride.” -John Paul II, Familiaris Consortio 17

Made for Love Ep. 79: Body Image plus The Great Divorce part 2

Posted Dec. 3, 2021 by DOM No comments yet

Struggles with body image don’t get a lot of attention in our culture, but Dr. John Acquaviva is here to help with that. He walks us through the ways which JPII’s Theology of the Body catecheses and scripture can resolve those struggles so they don’t stand in the way of loving relationships. Then, Kara rejoins (29:48) for the second half of our coverage of C.S. Lewis’s The Great Divorce.
