Good Listening, Catholic Style

Here are a few podcast episodes that I really enjoyed in the last few days:  

  • Disney and Theology.
    Brandon and Father Blake at The Burrowshire Podcast discuss the The Disney Renaissance (aka The Disney Decade), lasting from 1989-1999, and examine the religious themes of four Disney films: Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
  • Catholicism and Race.
    Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers (a favorite speaker of mine) is on Catholic Answers Focus with an answer to the scourge of racism — imitating Jesus. Our society refuses this path, preferring a culture of constant critique and revolution. It is time that the revolutionaries heard the hard truth—their cure is no cure at all. Real healing requires us to take up the Gospel with courage and humility.

  •  The Poison of Indifference.
    Indifference does not mean you don’t care; it just means you don’t care enough to move. Father Mike Schmitz's homily about allowing one’s circle of interest to outstrip one’s circle of influence.

  • The Best Argument for Outlawing Assisted Suicide.
    Trent Horn reports on a worrisome uptick in assisted suicides in Canada and lays out a blueprint for arguing against this offense to innocent human life.
