How do we shield ourselves and our loved ones from the perils of the online, artificial world? Are smartphones a blessing or a curse? How can we safely navigate the digital landscape without damaging the sanctuary of our family homes? Join us as we tackle these questions and more throughout the series.

In this ten-part series, we’ll answer questions about modern technology's complicated nature and its lurking hazards. In a world where technology reigns supreme, we'll explore its effects on us, our children, and our eternal destiny.

On the final episode of the Apologetics Series, we answer one last remaining question, "How do we know with certainty that we should join the Catholic Church?" Over the past 41 episodes we have shown that God exists, that His Word is true, that we can find Him, that Jesus is Him, and that the Church was given to us for our salvation. Yet we may still wonder if we should join an institution that has had corrupt leaders throughout hi...

On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we continue with the “Why Not” questions about what is reasonable to believe. In this episode, we turn our attention to Judaism. The Jewish people were the chosen people of God with whom He made a divine Covenant. Given this, is it true that this Covenant is still valid? Following the coming of Jesus Christ and the founding of the Church, is it right to practice Judaism today?

On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we continue with the “Why Not” questions about what is reasonable to believe. In this episode, we examine Mormonism or, as it is officially known, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. On the surface, there are many similarities between Mormon families and traditional Catholic families. Their values seem to match up. But even though the surface is similar, there are substantial dif...

On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we continue with the “Why Not” questions about what is or is not reasonable to believe by examining Islam. Islam is the second largest religion in the world behind Christianity and therefore warrants special attention. To help unpack this religion, we review the so-called "Five Pillars of Islam" while exploring whether it has some of the same basic roots as Judaism and Christianity.

Today we’ll be looking at the basic premise of Paganism – why Polytheism, animism, spiritualism, even if they have been at times very popular in history, and seem to be trendy now, simply don’t make sense to the reasonable person. We’ll see how, based on logic, the ideas inherent in Hinduism, Buddhism, and native or aboriginal spiritualities simply won’t match up to reality.

This is one of the most common objections to the Catholic Faith, namely that Catholics pray to Mary and the saints instead of going directly to Jesus. This criticism, common among Protestants, is often rooted in the Bible’s directive to go directly to Jesus and His Father.

Today we’ll see how the other 5 sacraments are reasonable and logical. Can we show that Our Lord instituted these sacraments?  Can we show that there is an unbroken tradition of belief in them, and that there is there a better answer than “the Catholic Church says so”?

On this special episode of the SSPX Interview Series, we're joined by Fr. Patrick Summers, the District Superior of Asia for the Society of St. Pius X. Father Summers shares some of the unique challenges and stories of the life of Tradition in the missions and encourages us to pray that the Lord send more laborers into the vineyard.

On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we begin the first of two episodes on the sacraments, and show that not only are they necessary, but they are rooted in Scripture. In this installment, we look specifically at the concept of the Mass as a sacrifice and the priesthood. Does God really require sacrifice? And what about the Mass itself? Did Our Lord intend us to take Him literally when he declared that the Eucharist really is Hi...

On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we continue discussing the concept of morality with Fr. Palko. In the last two episodes, we looked at morality in a theoretical and principled way. Today, we examine specific moral issues while tackling traditional moral positions that contemporary society views as “outdated" regarding sexuality, abortion, euthanasia, organ transplants, and more.

Last episode, we saw that an objective moral law exists. Now we begin to explore what this means for our lives. Are there circumstances where the same action can be more or less bad? What role does conscience play in making moral choices? Does an individual’s conscience “reign supreme,” as is often said? Finally, there is often talk about how we should not judge someone’s motivations, but is that true?

On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we continue our Apologetics Series by looking at the concept of morality. This is the first of three episodes on the morality, with each one examining a unique spect of this topic. First, we explore if there is such a thing as objective and universal moral truth. For instance, are moral rules the same for all people across cultures? If there is universal morality, how do we know what it is an...

On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we continue the Apologetics Series by looking at what is commonly called, “The Last Four Things” – that is: heaven, hell, purgatory, and judgement. What happens after we die? Is it fitting that we will be judged by God? And is it compatible with our understanding of God that we could either spend an eternity in a paradise beyond our knowledge, or in a place of suffering that will never end? T...

On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we’ll continue our Apologetics Series by furthering our understanding on one of the more complex issues dividing various Christian denominations – Predestination. We know that God knows all things – so He knows whether we will achieve salvation. So, why does it matter whether we do anything for our own justification, if God already knows the outcome? Protestants will further say we can’t help...

On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we’ll continue our Apologetics Series by looking at Justification – or how to get to Heaven. How are we justified? Did Christ do all the work through Redemption? Do we simply need to believe that His infinite merits are enough or do we need to do something more? The Catholic understanding of justification is one of the major dividing points between the Church and Protestantism, and so Fr. Loo...

This episode of the SSPX Podcast continues the Apologetics Series by examining further one of the fonts of revelation: Sacred Scripture. Having previously discussed the truth of the Bible and its divine inspiration, the Podcast turns to a major point of contention between Catholics and other Christian denominations, namely the interpretation of Scripture and the role the Church plays in safeguarding and disseminating a correct unde...

Over the last few episodes, we’ve identified some concerns about the Church – today, we’ll look at the attributes of the Church – or what the Church needs to have in order to be real, and believable. Does the Catholic Church fit all the criteria for believability?
