Questions Covered: 03:58 - In the Genesis account of the flood, when it speaks of the earth, can this apply to just a regional area? 07:22 - How do I explain a non-Catholic what salvation means for Catholics? 12:36 - Where do we see the apostles going out, hearing confessions, or telling people that, to have their sins absolved, they must confess to a priest? 18:05 - Does ‘thy kingdom come’ mean that God will bring his kingdom to earth? 20:22 - What is the Protestant argument against the Eucharist when it is so clearly laid out in Scripture? 31:01 - During the Exodus, did plagues really come down upon the Egyptians? 34:20 - Do animals go to heaven? 42:50 - When you promise to give up something for Lent, but you don’t fulfill your promise, is that a sin? 47:30 - Is it wrong to attend more than one rite in the liturgy? 49:32 - What is the link between the Christian priesthood and the Jewish priesthood?
