Today on Kresta - October 27, 2010

Talking about the "things that matter most" on Oct. 27

4:00 – By What Authority?: An Evangelical Discovers Catholic Tradition
The authority of Sacred Tradition is the big dividing line between Catholics and Protestants. We hear the story of how one former Evangelical, with the unlikely help of the Jesus Seminar, became convinced that Catholic Tradition was the other side of the coin of biblical revelation. Mark Shea tells his story.

5:00 – Aborted Remains Found in Trash – MI Attorney General Conducts Investigation
More remains of aborted babies have been found in dumpsters outside of abortion mills in the State of Michigan. More patient information has been found on documents in dumpsters outside of those abortion mills. And the MI Attorney General has conducted an investigation. Monica Miller of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society is here to fill us in on the results of the investigation.

5:20 – USCCB Reprimands 2 Creighton Theologians Over Their Book The Sexual Person
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops last month issued a sharply worded rebuke of a book co-authored by two Creighton University theologians. The Sexual Person: Toward a Renewed Catholic Anthropology was published in 2008 and written by Todd A. Salzman, chairman of the Creighton University Department of Theology, and Michael G. Lawler, the department’s professor emeritus. The book attempts to provide moral justification for contemporary sexual behaviors that consistently have been held to be immoral by the Catholic Church. Drafted by the USCCB’s Committee on Doctrine, it calls the authors’ conclusions “a radical departure from the Catholic theological tradition,” erroneous, and “harmful to one’s moral and spiritual life.” We talk to Fr. Daniel Mindling of Mount St. Mary’s Seminary.

5:40 – The Pope in the UK: The View a Month Later
It’s been a month since the Holy Father visited the UK. Fr. Robert Barron joins us to recap that visit now that the dust has settled and we have some distance. How was the message received, what will be the lasting impact, and what will change in the relationship between the Catholic Church and Anglicanism?


  1. Why aren't all Catholic Universities required to use the "Catechism of the Catholic Church, Second Edition" as a Student Text as part of its core cirriculum, so student can spot heretical teachings? This CCC contains required Church Doctrine on Faith and Morals and was first printed in the USA in March 2000. The Holy See holds the copyright.

  2. Creighton is just one more Jesuit Catholic University that thinks it is above the Doctrine of the Church that all Catholics are required to adhere to (contained in CCC 2nd Ed) in entirety.

    Most of these Universities refuse to follow the teachings of the Magesterium and the Pope.
    ON CATHOLIC UNIVERSITIES can be found on the Vatican web site.
    #27 "One consequence of its essential relationship to the Church is that the institutional fidelity of the University to the Christian message includes a recognition of and adherence to the teaching authority of the Church in matters of faith and morals. Catholic members of the university community are also called to a personal fidelity to the Church with all that this implies. Non-Catholic members are required to respect the Catholic character of the University, while the University in turn respects their religious liberty."
