Segment 1 (0:00)

  • Celine – I think we chose the wrong godparents. Can we pick someone else?
  • Gill – debating about salvation: The Bible says believe in the Lord and you will be saved. (acts 16:31). My Catholic friend thinks ‘saved’ is only for Protestants. What should I say?

Segment 2 (19:22)

  • Dennis – Q: what does Father think about the Neo-Catecumenal way? Why do they have so many young people attending?
  • Mary – Comment: I’m a catechist and I teach 8th grade. I had a parent that was unhappy with the sponsor her son picked. The mom was worried; I said to her that this is God’s way of bringing the sponsor back to the Church. I hope that God made a difference in this man.
  • Rose Mary – Praying the rosary with a group you get a plenary indulgence. Do you get a plenary indulgence even if you don’t know you can get one?
