A Catholic podcast from the USCCB asking the important questions about the call to love.
Kara and Andrew go on a journey with Sir Gawain to see if he’s up to the Green Knight’s challenge. Honestly, though, traveling with Bilbo or Frodo would be a more enjoyable experience. Topics include: Memento Mori, humanity’s relationship with nature, talking foxes, and random giants.
Our journey through Men, Women, and the Mystery of Love concludes with the book’s author, Dr. Edward Sri! Join us as he gives the inside scoop on the book’s background and where it leads. Topics covered include: doing it for the gram, the scourge of event maybes, Jesus is enough, and the point of virtue is to give us the freedom to love.
We had too much to say about When Harry Met Sally! We’re back with the second part of our chat about this endlessly entertaining, and at least somewhat edifying, look at relationships. Topics include: Gerald Ford, 80’s hair, the disputed nature of “chick flicks”, and the applicable ideas from Men, Women, and the Mystery of Love.
We finish up our two-part interview with Eden Invitation’s Anna Carter BUT we also start another multi-parter with the first of (at least) two episodes on When Harry Met Sally, the classic romcom from 1989. Seriously, we had way too much to say about this movie, even more than we thought going in.
In the first of a two-part interview, Anna Carter imparts her wisdom gained from Eden Invitation's exciting ministry relating to same-sex attraction and gender discordance. Following that, Kara jumps in to wrap up Men, Women, and the Mystery of Love with a cool conversation about remote preparation for marriage (i.e. singlehood).
Damon Owens of Joyful Ever After joins for a surprisingly fun chat about NFP Week. Then Kara stops by for a while to cover Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, one of our favorite movies. Topics covered include: Elon Musk’s space ambitions, the Trinitarian theology of booby traps, and can archeology serve as a vessel for loving your family?
Our guest Alice Heinzen tells us about grandparenthood, but maybe we should have brought her back for the second segment too. Kara and Andrew talk about Men, Women, and the Mystery of Love‘s section on tenderness, and find themselves disagreeing a bit. Is this the end for our heroes? Nah, it’s fine.
To mark Father's Day, Bishop Konderla joins us to chat about St. Joseph, fatherhood, and Pope Francis's apostolic letter Patris Corde. Then later we keep the Father's Day vibes rolling when Kara joins to talk about A Quiet Place (2018) and A Quiet Place Part II (2021), starring Emily Blunt and John Krasinski. Topics covered: cheating off of Bishop Barron's work, Neil Young's devotion to music at risk of life and...
Dr. Abigail Favale is back for part 2 of her interview about language in Gender Theory. Plus, Kara joins us to cover Men, Women, and the Mystery of Love chapters 7-9. Topics covered include chastity, modesty, the Me Too movement, and frat bros.
Dr. Abigail Favale joins us for part 1 of her interview on the language of Gender Theory, which has a huge influence on current thought about what the human person is made for. Then, Kara talks excitedly about Pride and Prejudice (the 1995 BBC miniseries, not so much the movie).
The second part of our interview with Mike and Alicia Hernon of the Messy Family Project continues our conversation about balancing priorities in a marriage. Totally by coincidence, our discussion of Men, Women, and the Mystery of Love later in the episode happens to intersect.
Dr. Greg and Lisa Popcak are here to offer ways to help with resentment in dating and breakups. Kara joins us to cover Pixar's most recent film Soul, starring Jamie Foxx and Tina Fey, because how could we not? Jazz and metaphysics never went so well together.
Fr. Philip Bochanski, Executive Director of Courage International, about accompaniment and same-sex attraction. Then Kara joins us to start our journey through Dr. Edward Sri’s Men, Women, and the Mystery of Love, with detours through Sex and the City and the Supreme Court. You know, like you’d expect.
Made for Love returns to talk about the impact of the sacraments on life as an embodied person, plus Andrew and Kara chat about the Studio Ghibli classic movie My Neighbor Totoro.
