The Catholic Tradition Podcast: Ep. 80 – Convey Out Your Useless


Jul 3, 2020

Modernity treats the human physique just about as a machine for the
manufacturing of delight. It’s tuned up, fueled, and oiled for peak
efficiency, after which when it’s not of use, it’s burnt and
disposed of in a maximally environment friendly method.

Paradoxically, the denial of a soul which persists after bodily
dying has led us to disclaim the physique itself as basic to human
id. The allegedly soulless fashionable has much less hope of
resurrection than the Saducees ever did. We one way or the other worry dying extra
but by no means interact with the truth of dying.

Scott Hahn joins the present to speak about how the incarnation,
dying and resurrection of the Son of God modified how our
civilization considered the physique, dying and the afterlife.

doesn’t convey this actuality. But how we method dying &
burial has the potential to point out the Catholic distinction and
evangelize our tradition.
