The question of obedience seems to be lurking in the background of a lot of Catholic conversation these days.
When is it no longer a virtue? Is there a point at which we can rebel or abandon ship? What about when there are doubts concerning particular matters or teaching?
These are real issues.
And while there’s no way to address all the facets of obedience on one podcast, there are some basic principles we need to keep in mind.
So after some preliminary remarks and practical advice, I’m going to share with you a lesson on the virtue of obedience from the Science of Sainthood in Next Level Catholic Academy.
Among other things, I’m going to cover:
- Why should authority be followed in the first place?
- Does the Bible have anything to say about obedience?
- What should we do when an issue isn’t clear?
- What is a spiritual key to obedience?
To be honest, when I filmed this, I had no idea how important the topic would become. But given all the confusion in the Church right now, we need to know our responsibility as faithful Catholics.
God bless and enjoy.
