St. Joseph’s Workshop with Father Matthew Spencer, December 5, 2018

On today’s show:

  • Maybe you think of the color purple. Inside the church during the season of advent violet starts popping up inside of the church. We should be thinking about the great example of faith that we have inside of our own catholic faith. Saint Joseph plays an important role in the life of Jesus. Father reflects on a few qualities of saint Joseph.  https://catholicexchange.com/five-ways-st-joseph-shows-us-how-to-live-out-advent.
  • Father received a frustrated email about a teacher who was let go in Pennsylvania. The email was sharing their frustration because a high school teacher got pregnant, is this not against the prolife message. The teacher is not Catholic herself and neither is her boyfriend.  Now that she is pregnant the school cannot turn a blind eye to it.
  • Not long ago father was talking about Netflix’s dark remake of Sabrina the teenage witch. The new remake is much darker and it shows imagery from the occult and the satanic temple. They took Netflix to court for 50 million dollars, Netflix had used a statute from the satanic temple. A new statue inside of the statehouse inside of Illinois, the satanic temple in Chicago started a go fund me. In order to have a statue inside of the state house next to the Christmas tree.
  • Maybe you heard about the letter Albert Einstein wrote, yester it was sold in an auction in New York. This letter talks about his position and understanding of God. He doesn’t have much sympathy for religion, “the word God is for me nothing than the expression of human weaknesses”. Father feels the same about Stephen hawking’s writings as well.
