Topics/Questions Covered in the Show:

  • How do we constructively face and overcome challenges in our parishes when the liturgy is contrary to the teachings of the Church?
  • How do these challenging experiences at Mass, to some degree, reflect Jesus’ road to Calvary?
  • Can the Lord draw us into a powerful, prayerful experience at Mass amidst the chaos?
  • how to endure and overcome liturgical difficultiesHow can we overcome the culturally induced mindset that the Mass should be entertaining?
  • These experiences can be a kind of suffering that we can offer to Christ.
  • How have liturgical abuses caused men to have a decreased faith life?
