Catechiwi — The Four Marks of the Church

The Catechiwi Podcast

Catechiwi — The Four Marks of the Church Each Sunday, Catholics profess that they believe in a Church that is one, holy, catholic and apostolic. What do those words mean? And how does that differ — if at all — from what other Christian denominations believe? Fr Merv Duffy, SM, explains the terms and their importance to the Faith in the month’s episode of Catechiwi.

Station XV: Episode 34 — Belgians and Blue Brothers

The 15th Station podcast

The panel returns with a series of hot topics to tackle this month, including the Belgian police raids that saw a number of a number of Catholic bishops detained as well as the upcoming visit of the Holy Father to the United Kingdom. We also discuss the Vatican’s newspaper endorsement of The Blues Brothers and their “Mission from God”, with L’Osservatore Romano saying it’s undoubtedly a Catholic film. If you’re looking for a Catholic spin on some of today’s film, you can check out the Australian Catholic Film Office or the United States Bishops’ Media Office for reviews.

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.

Station XV: Episode 33 — The priests and the vuvezelas

The 15th Station podcast

With the (Football) World Cup on in South Africa, we could hardly ignore it. But in this month’s episode we also mark the close of the Year for Priests, a time of great joy — and a few challenges — for the priesthood. We also talk about hell, chastity and work, three topics that don’t always follow on from one another with much ease.

Catechiwi – The Council of Nicaea

The Catechiwi Podcast

Two months ago, it was a discussion on the evangelical counsels: Poverty, chastity and obedience. This month, we’re talking about ecumenical councils, and specifically the Council of Nicaea in the fourth century. This was the Council that gave us the Creed we recite on Sundays. In this episode, Fr Merv Duffy, SM, is back to discuss that council and the legacy it left.

Catechiwi – Ascension and Pentecost

The Catechiwi Podcast

We often think of Christmas and Easter as the two great feasts of the Church’s year — and they are. But Ascension and Pentecost, the two dates at the end of the season of Easter, are also incredibly important dates in the Catholic calendar. Catechiwi favourite Fr Merv Duffy, SM, returns to the expert’s chair to discuss Christ’s Ascension into heaven and the descent of the Holy Spirit in this month’s episode of Catechiwi.
