What should we do?

That’s the question that keeps coming up in my conversations and email exchanges.

What is the appropriate response of faithful Catholics to this ongoing crisis?

While some are leaving and others are all-out attacking, most of us are caught somewhere in the middle.

We’ve always thought of ourselves as faithful Catholics. We’ve always honored our priests and bishops. We’ve always been a bit awed by the papacy.

So we’re torn.

We want this all to be fixed, but don’t know what tools are really at our disposal. We’re not totally sure what attitude and posture should we take.

That’s what I want to address in this episode. And I’m going to do it with Sacred Scripture.

I think it gives us some pretty clear direction. So in this podcast we’ll discuss:

  • The Scriptural origins of the Catholic priesthood
  • Why it can never be “us” vs “them”
  • The role of the Holy Spirit in choosing a pope
  • Extremely important takeaways from the story of King Saul and David
  • The powerful tool used by the prophet Daniel
  • The end result we should all be praying for

Based on what’s going on, this is an important episode that will provide some rich food for thought as you discern and pray about your personal response to the crisis.

God bless you and keep the Faith always!

Matthew
