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.

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.

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.

Catechiwi: Teach Me How to Pray

The Catechiwi Podcast

It’s something we should be doing every day, multiple times each day. No, not brushing your teeth (though that’s good too). In the December episode of Catechiwi, we speak to Fr Merv Duffy, SM, on prayer. Fr Merv, a Catechiwi favourite, talks about different reasons to pray, different ways to pray and gives some valuable advice on prayer in general.

Catechiwi — Episode 4: Viva il Papa

The Catechiwi Podcast

Fr Merv Duffy, SM, returns to the Catechiwi hot seat to help explain the papacy — not an easy task in 25 minutes or so. Fr Merv speaks with Gavin Abraham about the biblical origins of the papacy, some good and bad pontiffs and his time in Rome at the time of John Paul II’s death.

Catechiwi — Episode 2

The Catechiwi Podcast

Fr Merv Duffy returns for the second episode of Catechiwi, the new monthly podcast in The 15th Station stable. In the October programme, NZ Catholic editor Gavin Abraham asks Fr Merv about Mary — who she was, what her role was in the life of Jesus, how the Church honours her and much more. And, as a Marist priest, Fr Merv certainly knows a thing or two about this wonderful woman.
