3MC - 3 Minute Catechism - (English) Episode 16 - What is the Trinity?

Last edited 13th May 2016

What does it mean that God is Triune? Christians believe in one God but this God is a communion of persons. The Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Where did this complex idea of the Trinity come from? Well in the history of revelation God made one thing clear - that there is only one God. Then came Jesus and by forgiving sins and referring the Divine name to himself he made it clear he is also God and then it is explained that the Holy Spirit is God just like the Father and the Son.

Summary of Amoris Laetitia: On Love in the Family from the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference

Last edited 11th April 2016

The Apostolic Exhortation Amoris laetitia seeks emphatically to affirm not the “ideal family” but the very rich and complex reality of family life. Its pages provide an openhearted look, profoundly positive, which is nourished not with abstractions or ideal projections, but with pastoral attention to reality. The text is a close reading of family life, with spiritual insights and practical wisdom useful for every human couple or persons who want to build a family. Above all, it is patently the result of attention to what people have lived over 7 many years. The Exhortation Amoris laetitia: On Love in the Family indeed speaks the language of experience and of hope.

The Rise and Fall of a Prophet and What His Story Means for Us

Last edited 16th December 2015

He is one of the more curious figures of the Bible; the details of his life and story are caught up in textual complexities in the Book of Numbers. Though a prophet, he was not even an Israelite. He wrote no book and is not counted among Israel’s prophets. And yet a prophet he was, for he spoke the oracles of God and brought blessings to Israel at a critical time in its history.
