A listener named Beth asks about the Charismatic movement in the Catholic Church. Father Dave explains that the Church does not have any official teaching on the Charismatic Renewal. It is not suppressed by the Church, but we do not see it as often because it's not the mainstream form of prayer and worship in many Catholic communities, and also because it has ties to certain cultures.

Julie emails the show and asks a question about the Book of Life, which has been discussed a few times in her apologetics class. Father Dave explains that we see references to the Book of Life in the Book of Revelation, but that a lot of the Book of Revelation uses metaphorical language and symbolism, which makes it difficult to conclude that there is an actual book that gets one into Heaven.

A listener named Kathy calls into the show and asks, "Are we able to skip purgatory if we receive the Anointing of the Sick before death?" Kathy shares that she was taught this, and Father Dave explains that it's actually incorrect. He says that while our sins are forgiven by God, we still owe temporal punishment to purify ourselves.

A listener named Al asks, "Is it possible for Anglicans and Catholics to be in communion?" Father Dave explains that, under Pope Benedict, we made efforts to provide an avenue for those who wish to return to being in communion with the Catholic Church to do so. Pope Benedict gave the option for those in the Anglican community to come into full communion with the Church but still be able to use their common book of prayer and some other Anglican traditions.

A caller named Cindy shares her experience explaining the Church scandal to her teens. Cindy explained to them that Jesus is always at the center of our faith, even if people sin; and that not all priests are bad. She asks Father Dave if this was the right way to address it. Father Dave affirms Cindy and says that while we don't make excuses for this behavior, our faith is in Jesus, who has entrusted the Church to humans who are not perfect. Original Air 9-04-18

A caller named Sharon asks if Canon Law prohibits the laity from making decisions in the Church (besides doctrine). Father Dave explains that while there are certain decisions that fall only under the bishops' jurisdiction, there are many areas where the laity has a say in decision-making, like the National Review Board.

A listener named Sean shares that he went to Confession, and then his wife went in after him to the same priest. He explains that the priest told his wife some things Sean had said in Confession, but not his sins. He asks Father Dave if this is breaking the Seal of Confession.
