In Your Faith: Season 1
Join Byron, Chantal and Rosanna, as they explore the Church’s teachings in a fast-paced and fun way, offering you a practical message, and giving you an opportunity to discuss what you have to say about what the Church has to say.
1 - What is God?
People have been asking that question for centuries. It's right up there with "what is the meaning of life" Maybe it should be, Who is God? Do you know who or what is God? Or even, does God exist?
2 - (If God is A God of Love) Why Do Bad Things Happen?
Does anyone know why bad things happen? It seems to be a fact of life. But, so many people reject the existence of God precisely because of that question. Why believe in a God who is completely unfair and lets all these bad things happen?
3 - How Do I Beat Violence?
Violence is not a good thing, agreed. Most of us agree with that Church teaching. Still, why is there violence? Is it because of sin? We do know that violence exists, so what do we do in the face of sin?
4 - Why Does True Love Have to Wait?
The Church says that if you truly love someone you should wait to have sex with them. So, this is the episode about sex. If you truly love someone, then why wait until you get married to have sex?
5 - Y B Catholic?
Do you think Jesus thought that we would all be Catholics? Doesn't He just want us to follow His teachings and get to have a personal relationship with God? Isn’t it enough just to follow the teachings of Jesus?
6 - Why Doesn’t the Church Get With the Times?
Lots of people, Catholics and non-Catholics alike, have been asking that question for a long time. It's another question that has made people leave the Church, never to come back. Why does the Church seem to be stuck in the 4th Century?
7 - If God Has a Plan For Me, Do I Really Have Free Will?
Does God really know our future? Is it because He planned it? If so, then doesn't that mean that we don't have free will? Can we change the future? And, how do we know God's will? .
8 - Who is Jesus?
He was from Galilee, son of a carpenter, a preacher, a prophet, a teacher. But was he God? This man never wrote a book, never fought with an army, never really travelled very far from his home town, yet his teachings, some will say, are the foundation for the entire western civilisation.
9 - Who is Mary?
A lot of people think that Catholics worship Mary - or that Mary is like some sort of God. But is that true? Why do we have such devotion to Mary? Byron and Rosanna explore the Church's teachings on Mary and our devotion to the Mother of God.
10 - Who the Hell is the Devil?
Does the devil exist? Is he really a red guy with horns, a tail and a pitchfork who lives in a fiery hell? What does the Church teach about Satan? Byron and Rosanna explore the nature of Evil and the personhood of the devil.
11 - Where is Heaven?
What does heaven look like? What is it? Where is it? For that matter, what happens when we die? We don't have any details of life in heaven. Nobody has ever come back to tell us what it's like. But we do have some informed speculation.
12 - Who Am I?
Do you know who you are? Do you know what you are? Is there a difference? Are you always the same person or do you change as you grow? If we are created by God, what does that mean about who we are?
13 - Where Do I Fit In the World?
What is the meaning of life? People have been asking this question since the beginning of time. We all want to know that our lives have an impact, that there is a reason for being. We know who we are - but what do we do with that? Byron and Rosanna explore our mission as human beings, our reason for being and possibilities for vocation.
