Station XV – Episode 31 – Abuse, apologies and another round

The 15th Station podcast

It’s not a pleasant topic to cover, but we’d be remiss in leaving it out this month.  So we deal in detail with the growing abuse scandal in Europe and the attacks on the Pope, the Waihopai Three spybase destroyers and their “not guilty” verdict, the terrible case of a woman starving herself to death, and the pubs in Ireland opening on Good Friday…for a football match!

Catechiwi: Poverty, Chastity and Obedience

The Catechiwi Podcast

They’re the evangelical counsels — better known today as the religious vows. For centuries, religious priests, brothers and sisters have been adhering to the vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. But, as Fr Bernie Thomas, OFM, explains, those principles provide a blueprint for living for all people. Gavin Abraham talks to Fr Bernie about how living the counsels has changed over the centuries, but in many ways stayed the same.

Station XV – Episode 30 – Around the world

The 15th Station podcast

A great show that takes us all over the world this month!  We talk about the debate around adopting the upcoming changes to the Mass missal, the NZ Medical Council losing the plot and forcing Catholic doctors to refer for abortions, how Christian are the Christian Democrats in Germany, atheists failing to get on the bus with their ad campaign copied from the UK, and a French project for dialling in for Confession.  Turns out, that’s not allowed. Check it out, and follow us on facebook.com/station15 or twitter.com/station15.

The Ultimate Form of Prayer

The Catechiwi Podcast

After hearing from Fr Merv Duffy last month — last year even — on the various forms of prayer, this month’s episode of Catechiwi looks at the Holy Mass, generally considered to be the ultimate form of prayer. When was the first Mass? What are the various parts of the Mass? How does the Mass prepare us for the world? Fr Merv is back to answer those questions and others.

No Station 15 episode for January

Well it’s summer time down here in NZ, and the living may be a little too easy as we’ve been unable to call the crew together for an episode recording! Whether it’s a honeymoon, Hearts Aflame (www.heartsaflame.org.nz) or just the call of the Kiwi beaches, we are all scattered across the country and the globe at the moment, so there won’t be a 15th Station episode this month.
Awwww…don’t cry! We’ll be back next month, we promise. Until then, maybe listen to some of our old episodes you might have missed? Or spend the time praying for some needy causes – the tragedy in Haiti springs to mind.
See you next month!
