Catholics Answers’ chaplain, Norbertine Fr. Hugh Barbour, joins Cy to take any question of a pastoral nature. He discusses the Latin mass, swearing oaths, calling men "father," Communion, and more. Questions Covered: 03:38 - What are the pros and cons of going to the Latin mass instead of the vernacular? 17:40 - How can I, as a corrections officer, go about my Christian duties when I know the evils that some of the inmates have committed? 22:11 - Matthew 5:33-37 tells us not to swear or take false oaths. What is the meaning of “swear” there? 29:35 - Does God love the Devil? 32:51 - Why do we call men “father” when the Bible says not to? 42:20 - What should be my role as a parent of an unfaithful spouse? 46:20 - Are military chaplains actual Catholic priests or are they just general ministers who go through the motions? 48:19 - Can someone who is outspokenly pro-choice (but hasn’t had an abortion) receive communion? 51:00 - What are the limits of having to obey the pope?
