Family – Episode 71

What do we do about Family interactions during the holidays?

In perhaps our most fun episode to date in terms of just rolling with it, Beth tries to make a point while Kristofer goes off into la la land.

Music, movie, cartoon, disco, philosophy, sitcoms and saint references seem to come easily when one person comes from a solid family of origin and another comes from the family that put fun into dysfunctional.

But, seriously, this is good stuff with some actual pointers. And even Larry gets into it…

LOTS of show notes with timestamps here, too.

Celebrating Advent – Episode 70

How is Advent celebrated?

Celebrating Advent is sometimes overlooked in anticipation of Christmas, but for a Catholic, Advent is that anticipation as we begin a new Liturgical Year.

In this episode we discuss the many ways our family does – and yours can – celebrate Advent, and not just with an Advent Calendar.

There are tons of ways to make it a celebration every day for all four weeks! This is how we do it…and we provide the resources for you to do it, too!

Why Does The Catholic Church Not Believe In Cremation – Episode 66

Why Does The Catholic Church Not Believe In Cremation? Beth and Kristofer do not accept the premise.

Does the Church discourage cremation? Sure.

But it also accepts the occasional necessity of cremation, and when chosen prudently it is not a sin.

But when done for the wrong reasons, it is a grave sin. No pun intended!

Listen to understand the nuances of the Church’s teaching on this sensitive and often gut-wrenching topic.
