At first I didn’t get it. But after taking a closer look, I now do…totally.

I’m talking about a theology of home. So much of what happens in our lives and how we even approach life begins within the four walls of home.

It’s thoroughly Catholic and way deeper than it first appears.

I’m joined today by one of my most popular guests, Dr. Carrie Gress, author of amazing books like The Marian Option and The Anti-Mary Exposed. She’s a total powerhouse for the Catholic faith.

Her latest work is a two-volume work titled Theology of Home (links below). And while it might not sound all that masculine (at least not to me:), trust me when I say this is an important episode for both men and women.

  • How a Catholic theology of home is different from Protestantism and other faiths
  • The prime role of beauty in the home
  • The relationship between “home” and your spiritual life
  • Why Scripture emphasizes hospitality and the importance of its role
  • How Our Lady teaches us a theology of home

So get comfortable in your home (or your second home…your car:) and enjoy.

  1. Hi, Matt! Thanks for the interview with Dr. Carrie Gress – I’ve already purchased two of her books thanks to your podcast and am about to buy two copies of Theology of Home II.

    Both your podcast and NLCA are truly a God-send; they help me reorient myself back to God fairly regularly. In my younger and more naive days, I used to scorn the Israelites for falling away from God so frequently, but it would seem theirs is the last laugh. I see myself in them all of the time now.

    Appreciate your work and praying for you! God Bless!
