On this edition of What Catholics Believe, Tom and Fr. Jenkins discuss: What is the difference between the active will of God and the passive will of God? • What is the ‘Oath Against Modernism’? • Is the ‘Oath Against Modernism’ binding upon successive popes? • Can an encyclical be overturned by a later pope? • Was Vatican II the result of God withholding his graces? • What was the Miracle on the Vistula? • How was ‘Humanae Vitae’ a restatement of previous Church teachings? • How was ‘Humanae Vitae’ also different from previous Church teachings? • Why do the members of the Novus Ordo have a myriad of views on morals? • Lastly, Fr.

We return to the email inbox on this episode of What Catholics Believe. Among the many questions examined and answered: • Is it possible that Vigano is an actor and his letter was staged? • How does one go about rejecting the Novus Ordo and by whose authority? • What is a Catholic to do when they have no traditional Catholic priest available? • How to answer those whom have the approach that being quasi-traditional is better than nothing? • If it is sinful for one to smoke marijuana, wouldn’t it be logical to conclude it would also be sinful to use cocaine even if it were consumed in a drink? • In the Gospels are there more references by Our Lord, Jesus the Christ, to heaven or hell?
