Callers choose the topics during Open Forum, peppering our guests with questions on every aspect of Catholic life and faith, the moral life, and even philosophical topics that touch on general religious belief. Questions Covered: 04:38 - I am a convert. Something that concerns me is that my boyfriend’s Catholic grandmother takes seriously a book that says many things that are contrary to what the Church teaches. How can I talk to her about the errors that are contained in this book? 19:08 - Can our relatives that have passed away see what we do here on earth? 22:07 - Is advice or counsel given in Confession given in persona Christi? 28:48 - Is there any spiritual danger in doing yoga that is devoid from any spiritual aspects and is done purely for physical health? 35:00 - Is there salvation outside of the Catholic faith? 47:47 - Is it ethical to donate your body to science once you’ve died? 49:40 - When Jesus is tempted by Satan and offered all the kingdoms of the world, Satan says that the kingdoms were given to him and that he had the power to give them away. Why were they given to him? 52:12 - Is it wrong to receive the Eucharist when you’ve committed a mortal sin?
