Audio Highlights

Recordings from special events, guest speakers, live drives, and more.

One day in 1961, the famous physicist Richard Feynman stepped in front of a Caltech lecture hall and posed this question to a group of undergraduate students: “If, in some cataclysm, all of scientific knowledge were to be destroyed, and only one sentence was passed on to the next generation of creatures, what statement would contain the most information in the fewest words?”

In today’s episode we apply that same thought experiment to some of the greatest thinkers and saints from our tradition. What one sentence would encapsulate their thought? We look at Moses, Jesus, Paul, Augustine, Aquinas, Merton, and even Bishop Barron’s own “cataclysm sentence”!

A listener asks whether God made a mistake in creating humans.

At some point, the exile will end. You will be able to go back. But why? What is the reason why you will go back?

Dr. Chris talks with Deacon James Keating about his personal journey of faith and what we can learn from it.

Pray With Us

We invite you to pray our special presentation of the Real Presence Radio Family Rosary. We visited families throughout our listening area and recorded this beautiful prayer with moms, dads, and their children. As your family of faith and hope, we’re excited to join with you in this prayer!
