Questions Covered:

20:15 – How would you respond to someone who says that religion is just a series of stories, nothing more? 
23:35 – What do you think about the series that is currently out, The Chosen? Do you think that the imaginative license taken with it is useful and good? 
31:29 – Could you elaborate on the idea that maybe imagination and mysticism go hand in hand? How can we discern when we are imagining things versus having a mystical experience? 
50:08 – Are there any current authors who have captured imagination well that you would recommend? 
52:59 – How do you see Sam’s character in the Lord of the Rings? Is he an archetype for Christ? 

Questions Covered:

02:00 – I’m Catholic and I’m concerned about the religious indifferentism that is taking over and even seeping into the Catholic Church itself. 
08:21 – you have any advice on scrupulosity?  
17:00 – 18 yr old son came and said “I should not be Catholic because I do not believe everything the Catholic Church teaches” how do I respond to this? 
24:53 – In regard to the pandemic and lockdown what is your take on those of us who feel that the Churches should not have closed in the first place? I am having trouble trusting our shepherds now because of everything that went on during those times. 
34:53 – Here there is a 3 year wait for marriage annulment and the fact that one cannot receive Communion until they are fully annulled can be life-changing to some. Are steps being taken to change the waiting period? 
41:35 – Why is the stigmata on the shroud of Turin on Christ’s wrists while certain saints (for example Padre Pio) had the stigmata on their palms? 
45:36 – I have heard rumors that Pope Francis is going to release a document that hinders the celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass. Are there previous documents that “protect” the ability to perform the Traditional Latin Mass?  

Questions Covered: 

04:15 – I was raised Catholic but I was married in an Episcopalian church. I am wondering about the validity of my marriage. 
06:16 – In the catechism there are smaller “non heaven or hell issues” that I disagree with. How much of the catechism (or doctrines of the Faith) do I have to agree with in order to be a Catholic? 
17:00 – I was Reading about current Eucharistic issues and I read that abortion is an immediate cause for excommunication. Why are other forms/sins of murder not excommunicable? 
21:18 – I’d like to know how the apostles knew about events of Christ’s life where it seemed like only Jesus would have been present (as in when Jesus was before Pontius Pilate or when he was fasting in the wilderness). How can we trust the validity of the gospels? 
29:59 – The Bishops said that the president should not receive communion and I think that is crazy. The president is catholic shouldn’t he be able to receive communion. 
51:12 – I have a question about the passage John 8:1-11 I listened to a secular podcast where they said that this passage was added later to the bible.
