Station XV: Episode 110 — Voting, Governing, Ordaining, Building and Writing

The 15th Station podcast

The remarkable and unexpected election of Donald Trump highlights this month’s episode, with stories about the voting patterns of Catholic and Evangelicals and the hope for shared priorities with the Catholic Church and the President-Elect. Pope Francis’s affirmation of the Church’s teaching on women’s ordination and the news that the Christchurch Cathedral could be fully restored — at the cost of $100 million — also feature on the show. But the big question of the month is “What happened to a New Zealand teddy bear at the Vatican?” Enjoy the show.

    Gentlemen, thank you for the great show as always. I really enjoy your cheerful and optimistic take on the Catholic life.
    I just wanted to throw in a quick plug for the role of women in the life of the Church – the stigmata has been a sign of the very holiest saints, yet of at least dozens of stigmatists, there has only been one priest (Padre Pio), and of the rest the vast majority are women…
    Obviously that’s just one sign, but the goal of the Church is the holiness of her members, not authority. This being the case, I think there are plenty of ways in which women have the advantage as it were.

The 15th Station is our active monthly news podcast.  We get a panel of Kiwi Catholics together to provide a Catholic perspective on the news and current events of the month.
Catechiwi is our archived catechesis podcast where we get a guest theologian from around the country or the world to speak on an aspect of the Catholic Faith.
Ignition leverages our partnerships with organisations like Hearts Aflame to provide a back catalogue of amazing lectures and talks from international speakers.  We divide these talks up into multi-part podcasts.
15 Minutes With The Bishop is a series of interviews with Bishop Patrick Dunn, DD, the Catholic Bishop of Auckland, New Zealand.
