Vatican II and the Will of God

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. Jenkins shares a few spiritual thoughts on preparation for the season of Advent.

Questions: A Vigano conspiracy? Pope Leo XIII OK’s cocaine?

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?
