Misinformation and disinformation about the earthly work of the Catholic Church is corrected. “Setting the Record Straight” will quench the thirst of Catholics who want to hear true stories explaining their glorious heritage.
Amusing stories of miracles performed by saints. But these stories are mostly forgotten today, perhaps because, in this skeptical age they seem unimportant and a bit embarrassing to Catholics. Yet, given God’s powerful authenticated miracles , they seem to be certainly possible Perhaps they are true, partly true, or perhaps they are just invented tales. They are called hagiographies, that is, biographies that put the saint in a very flattering light. Hagiographies make the subjects seems like saints. Whether these particular miracles happened or not, they were saints for other reasons.
It is necessary for you to enter the Adoration Chapel. Evil is often done by ordinary men. Evil is banal. If you haven’t realized this then you have not been awake to the domain of pain which we inhabit. We are in great peril, teetering on the cliff edge of chaos. But since some cannot admit it their vision reaches only to the the curtains of their dreams. They ignore the chaos beyond the window. A rational materialist sees what is happening and hardens or despairs. An ordinary man may commit astoundingly evil acts under the influence of a faulty ideology. When one does believe, however, and realizes the truth of the Presence, one will perceive that the depravity of the world will finally be healed. When we merge with the Presence order assembles out of chaos. This podcast was inspired by the work of the phenomenal Jordan Peterson.
Jordan Peterson has created a sensation. He is a Canadian Professor of Psychology whose Book “12 rules For Life” is the #1 Best Seller on Amazon. He gives numerous sold-out lectures on college campus. Pay attention, because this rebellious and brilliant academic, whose religious preference is hidden, may be the one of most effective evangelists for Catholicism today. One of his basic messages is that we must recognize the fallen nature of humanity. And confront it. And understand that we are inhabited by Eden’s snake. Check out the “You Tubes” of Peterson’s devastation debates and gentle yet fiery lectures. There is no one like him.

No matter how often slavery is abolished it sprouts up again and again like a weed. But when and where was slavery abolished? Well…the full answer is complicated. Slavery was abolished over and over again in various locations. A simplified answer might be that it was opposed and/or abolished frequently in a lot of places, most often in a time and place where the Catholic Church was influential. Most educated people know about the achievements of Wilberforce and Lincoln. But those two men were late to the game of abolishing slavery. Under Catholic emperors the late Roman Empire abolished slavery a millennium-and-one-half before Wilberforce. All this leads to “Another Daring Proposition”from Setting The record Straight”. Catholicism did more to abolish slavery than any other entity.
