As we continue our journey through Lent, Bishop Rhoades offers his reflections upon two key parables: the Pharisee and the Tax Collector, and The Sermon on the Plain. Hear more about how these Gospel readings can bring us closer to Christ through humility and charity.

– 25:07 – I have two questions, and I should tell you I am a teenager. My first question would be what steps I can take to become a married deacon? The second would be if I could be a lay cannon lawyer and what steps I should take to do that. My goal is to attend Ave Maria, but if there are other college suggestions I would like those too.
– 28:44 – Is it better to pray out loud or is it okay to pray in silence?
– 30:15 – What would be your number one tip for parents of an adult child who has left the faith?
– 32:30 – Does the commandment “Honor your father and mother” apply in reverse so parents have to honor their children as well?
– 37:25 – Why can’t we have a little more Latin in Mass besides at Advent and Lent?
– 41:05 – Do doctors of the Church perform surgeries? Do you have a favorite?
