The Chaplain Is In

December 5, 2018 - 11pm

We focus on pastoral concerns but welcome any question callers would like to ask a Catholic priest as we are joined by the Catholic Answers chaplain, Norbertine Father Hugh Barbour.

Questions Covered: 

  • 08:19 - How can I explain why masculinity is essential to the priesthood?
  • 13:43 - When did crucifixes become a symbol of the Faith? I know Christians could not wear crosses for fear of their lives at first. When did that change?
  • 20:21 - When is it appropriate to talk to my pastor about the way the liturgy is run at my church? Can I make suggestions to him as to how things could be more beautiful, etc.?
  • 24:12 - How am I supposed to understand the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary? What truly is her role?
  • 28:51 - Why can’t I have a nuptial Mass on All Souls’ Day?
  • 32:58 - What is the relationship between how we are made in the image and likeness of God and the Incarnation?
  • 35:43 - You say a man is someone who takes care of someone else. If that’s true, then what is a woman?
  • 37:46 - I have seen a series of anti-Catholic comics. I am wondering what Fr. Hugh can suggest to me.
  • 45:00 - Can you explain the idea of the New Adam and New Eve?
  • 48:44 - Does God kill the human ego?
  • 51:30 - Is taking care of people masculine or feminine?
