Show Notes – A Good Habit 4/8/15

On this week’s episode of  A Good Habit we were joined by Dr. David Delaney, doctor of systematic theology and founder and director of the Mother of the Americas Institute.  Since it was the anniversary of St. John Paul II’s funeral, and since this Sunday the Church celebrates Divine Mercy Sunday, it was the perfect time to discuss JPII and the importance of the Divine Mercy message, to which he had such deep devotion.

The topic of Divine Mercy is a popular one, and we got lots of emails during the show asking about the Divine Mercy grace and the plenary indulgence the Church has attached to this feast day.  Please read this article for an explanation of the difference between the Continue reading

A Good Habit Show Notes

Proclaim the truth of marriage articulately and convincingly, and lovingly as well.

-Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco

Blessed Friday to everyone!

On Wednesday’s show we featured Dr. David Delaney, doctor of systematic theology and director of the Mother of the Americas Institute.  Dr. Delaney had been a guest with us last month, but we were glad to have him back again so soon because the topic, and the timing of it, were just too important to pass up: Marriage.  Yesterday was the National March for Marriage, and cities across the country, including our own San Antonio, were holding rallies in conjunction with those in Washington, DC and San Francisco, to show their support for traditional marriage.

The timing is perfect, too, because on Saturday begins the Fortnight for Freedom, two weeks of prayer and action focused on defending our religious liberty, which is under attack on many fronts, and is most definitely affected by the attack on traditional marriage.

Have you ever been asked to defend or explain your belief in traditional marriage by family members or friends?  If you haven’t been asked yet, you will one of these days, as the push for normalizing so-called same-sex marriages continues.  We urge you to attend the upcoming forum on marriage hosted by Dr. Delaney and Mike Dunnigan, from the St. Joseph Foundation.  It’s a great opportunity to hear the Church’s timeless teachings on marriage explained, as well as learning how to convey this to others who don’t understand, or don’t share, this belief.  If you’ve ever had trouble countering any of the arguments put forth by society in favor of so-called same-sex marriage, then this forum is for you!

Show Notes – A Good Habit 5/21/14

A Good Habit Show NotesGood morning, everyone! I’m trying to be super diligent and get these Show Notes posted since I’ve slacked off on posting the last ones.

On yesterday’s show we were joined by Dr. David Delaney, doctor of systematic theology and director of the Mother of the Americas Institute.  Our topic was everyone’s not-so-favorite subject: persecution and suffering.  But not just that, because the two essentials for enduring any kind of suffering are joy and hope.  The focus was on Robert P. George’s address at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast last week.  You can find the full text of the address here, or the video here (his address begins at 15:10 in the video).  These are weighty words that deserve to be read and taken to heart.

Also, on a previous episode we promised to give you the link for listening to MP3s of Fr. Mitch Pacwa’s talks on Divine Mercy which he gave here in San Antonio during the Divine Mercy SA Weekend.  Those talks will be available here.  Although I did not see them yet, there are lots of other great talks by Father you should check out.
