Friends, I have long been interested in exploring The Catechism of The Council of Trent on lionandox. Inspired by the popular Fr. Mike Schmitz and his podcasts The Bible in a Year, and now The Catechism in a Year, it seemed to me (as imitation is the highest form of flattery), that we could do no better than Exploring The Catechism of the Council of Trent, intending that we also would complete the project in a year!
Written in the second half of the 16th century (under the direction of two saints!), The Catechism of The Council of Trent is arguably the clearest and most succinct presentation of the Catholic Faith available.
The newer Catechism of the Catholic Church, was not intended to replace the Catechism of Trent (aka “The Roman Catechism”) but was intended as a supplement. A great idea for Catholics to have both!
Given that the year appears to have already commenced, our new podcast will therefore have to accomplish the entire task in less than a year.
Therefore, beginning this Wednesday – January 11, 2023 – watch for the beginning of this exciting new series!
Given the nature of things, we do not anticipate necessarily posting a new installment of this series on a daily basis, but then again we just might.
Unfortunately, there does not appear to be a way to disable email notifications. Consequently, with our apologies, some subscribers may find it necessary to unsubscribe from the blog (sadly) in order to eliminate crowded inboxes.
I hope you will enjoy this new feature hosted on lionandox.com.
Bring it on! Great news, we are in!
What a great idea! My guess is that these other podcasts are aimed primarily at οί πολλοί. A worthy endeavor, but one that might leave your sagacious audience wanting. The Roman Catechism should provide an excellent and substantive alternative to Fr. Mike’s latest work. I look forward to the first installment.
Can you somehow get this podcast hosted somewhere it can be searched in Apple or overcast’s directory, or provide an RSS link?
I pasted your wordpress URL in my podcast app and it “just worked”. Looking forward to the series.
Thanks for the interest! I actually just switched the podcast host, so the new RSS link is: https://anchor.fm/s/d91b1618/podcast/rss.
I’m working on getting the podcast on Apple Podcasts and Overcast, but for now its just available on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/0F09HNm8O21AxBiQtS8Vjh
