Catechiwi: The Commandments, Episode 3

The Catechiwi Podcast

Fr Merv Duffy, SM, and Gavin continue to work through the Ten Commandments in the July episode of Catechiwi. This month, it’s commandments five and seven: Thou shall not kill and Thou shall not steal. As we’ve found with the other commandments, there’s often a lot more to them than meets the eye.

Sorry for the late upload. Technical difficulties.

Catechiwi Special: Australasia’s First Saint

The Catechiwi Podcast

On October 17, Pope Benedict XVI will canonise Blessed Mary MacKillop, making her St Mary of the Cross (MacKillop). Mary, born and raised in Australia, was a co-founder of the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart and spent approximately four years of her religious life in New Zealand. She encountered major obstacles along the way, but responded to them with charity and humility. In a special episode of Catechiwi, Sr Ann Neven, RSJ, speaks with Gavin Abraham on Mary MacKillop’s life and legacy just days before the canonisation. It’s the story of an Aussie battler — one who Kiwis can also claim.

Catechiwi – The Rhythm is Gonna Get You: The Church Year

The Catechiwi Podcast

The Church’s calendar is sometimes said to have a “rhythm” as we cycle from Advent to Christmas through Ordinary Time into Lent, Eastertide and back into Ordinary Time. How did this pattern evolve? When did Christians start keeping Sunday as holy, rather than the Jewish Sabbath? Was Jesus really born on December 25? And does it matter? Catechiwi regular Fr Merv Duffy, SM, sheds some light on those questions and others in this month’s episode.
