Talking about the "things that matter most" on Apr. 30
4:00 – The Church: Unlocking the Secrets to the Places Catholics Call Home
Your local church is not only a physical place, but a spiritual home. Mike Aquilina is here to illuminate the importance of the Church in its many guises and examine the theological ideas behind the physical structure of churches, cathedrals, and basilicas. How is a church designed? What is the function of the altar? What does the nave represent? What is the significance of the choir loft? With eloquent prose and elegant black-and-white photography, these questions and many more will lead to answers that illuminate the history and practicality of Catholic life.
5:00 – Jacob's Ladder: Ten Steps to Truth
There are ten important questions everyone should ask; and the answers to these questions, which lead to ultimate truth, are a matter of reason, not of faith. This is the thesis of well-known Catholic philosopher and writer Peter Kreeft who tackles each of these questions in a logical step-by-step way, like climbing the rungs of a ladder. Because questions are best answered by dialogue, Kreeft answers these fundamental questions in an imaginary conversation between two very different people who meet at the beach. Dr. Kreeft joins us.
