He delves into the historical context of the church and offers advice on navigating complex issues with faith and dedication.

  • Mark – Is it proper to have the crucifix with the Corpus?
  • Rafael – I think that if Jesus isn’t on the Cross, how can you say that the cross isn’t of one of the thieves or someone else.
  • Jake – Where does it say the pope is infallible? Why would this system even exist, it seems like an insecure system if he goes crazy. (11:39)
  • Teresa – I washed an old bottle of holy water in a tub. Can I poor the holy water residue in my planters?
  • Chris – I prayed in front of a nativity scene, but Jesus wasn’t in the manger, so do I still get an indulgence?
  • Vivian – My cousin doesn’t have a father figure in his life and he gets into trouble a lot. What should I do?

  • Laura – My son was dating a trans woman. How do I talk with him about this?
  • Joann – Did Jesus, Mary, and Joseph leave for Egypt because of the killing of infants?
