A caller named Michael asks, "What is the difference between a basilica, cathedral, and regular church?" Michael recently attended Mass at a basilica and it made him wonder why we call churches by different names. Father David explains that a Cathedral is the seat of the bishop in a diocese. A basilica is designated by the Pope, and a regular parish is under the authority of a priest. Original Air 1-16-18

A listener named Augustine asks, "Is getting paid a salary for hours that you didn't work offensive to God?" Augustine explains he'll occasionally leave work early, but still gets paid for a full eight-hour shift because he is a salaried employee. Father Dave says that as long as we are not intentionally cheating the system, we should be in good conscience that we are not doing anything wrong. Original Air 2-27-18
