Individual Topics

Keeping Holy the Sabbath

This episode focuses on ways we can have a good rule of life on our journey as Christians. We look at why God commands us to keep holy the Sabbath, why we do so on Sunday, and the practical ways we actually do keep this day holy.

Daily Rule of Life

In this talk, we look at habits we can incorporate into our daily lives, including the Liturgy of the Hours, which is the official public prayer of the Church. We look at what it is, why to pray it, and how to do so.

Cardinal Virtues

In this talk, we looked at the cardinal virtues- prudence, justice, courage temperance. It highlights an overview of the moral life, human nature, and then Fr Greg finishes looking at the particular virtues themselves.
