    Our Entrance into the Story: The Seven Scriptural Sacraments

    in Christianity

    The Catholic Church professes seven Sacraments that convey the grace they signify: Baptism, Confirmation, Communion, Confession, Anointing of the Sick, Ordination, and Marriage. The spiritual life of the church revolves around these signs of God's love and grace. But how does a Sacrament "work"? Are there rules to them? Where in the bible can we find them? Do Catholic's believe they are more important than the bible? Only the Holy Spirit can give grace, not things made on Earth, right? What do they do? Where do they come from? Why do they matter? Who needs them and when? How do they work? 


    In this series, Kristina Rake, theologian, lecturer, author, and award-winning preacher, explains everyhing you need to know about the Sacraments and why they are vital, not only to the life of the Church, but to Your life in Christ. 


    Kristina Rake has her Masters in Theology and Scripture from Andover Newton Theological School in Boston. She is the author of numerous articles on theology and the bible and is an expert in educational curriculum. She is currently in formation for the priesthood in the United States Old Catholic Church under Archbishop James Long, her ordinary. Kristina has been teaching Catholic Apologetics, Scripture, Theology, and Spirituality since 1999, when she herself entered the Church from the Protestant Ministry. She can be reached via Facebook under Kristina Rake.

    Sunday Morning Divine Service_4.11.15_Lamb of God Lutheran Church Papillion NE

    in Christianity

    9 am Sunday morning Divine Service for Sunday 4/12/15. Traditional liturgy and law gospel sermon. Pastor Houser’s sermon from the gospel of John 20: 19-31. The disciples are in the upper room and terrified they will be dragged away. But Jesus, in His resurrected body, was manifest. He declared the gospel saying, “Peace be with you”. He means, “I am here with you. Do not fear - believe”. Forgiveness of sins has been won. A new day has dawned. It’s all about the gospel and its distribution.


    Thomas is not the only one who needs to see and hear. We do as well, and we do through the means of grace: word and sacraments; holy communion and baptism. Jesus Christ is here with us now.

    St. Peregrine - Patron Saint of Cancer Patients

    in Religion

    Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org


    St. Peregrine - St. Peregrine was born in Forli, Italy, around 1265. At that time, Forli was governed by the Pope as part of the Papal States, and Peregrine grew up in a family that was actively involved in the opposition, or anti-papal party. Because of anti-papal activity, the city was under the church penalty of interdict, meaning that Mass and the Sacraments could not be celebrated there. St. Philip Benizi, Prior General of the Servants of Mary, went to Forli to preach reconciliation. Young Peregrine, very intense in his political fervor, not only heckled Philip during his preaching, but, in fact, struck him. Philip, instead of responding with anger and violence to the attack, turned and forgave Peregrine.


    This encounter with Philip is said to have dramatically changed Peregrine. He began channeling his energy into good works and eventually joined the Servants of Mary in Siena, Italy. He returned to Forli, where he spent the rest of his life, dedicating himself to the sick, the poor, and those on the fringes of society. He also imposed on himself the penance of standing whenever it was not necessary to sit. This led to varicose veins, which later deteriorated into an open sore on his leg, and was eventually diagnosed as cancer.


    Peregrine's leg wound became so serious that the local surgeon decided to amputate the leg. The night before the surgery, Peregrine prayed before the image of the crucified Christ, and when he awoke, the wound was healed and his leg saved. He lived another 20 years, dying on May 1, 1345, and the age of about 80. Peregrine was canonized on December 27, 1726, and has been named the Patron Saint of those suffering from cancer.

    Socially Awkward 10: The Big Gay Episode

    in Pop Culture

    An impromptu, post-Christmas episode brings us Flynt & Paisley discussing gay marriage, sacraments, bakeries, kids in glasses, dimetap, Sons of Anarchy, and the awesomeness of Trey Parker & Matt Stone.  (Editor's Note-This was recorded about 3 months before Nebraska's stupid constitutional ban on gay marriage/civil unions was struck down; that still seems to be tied up in court so who knows what'll happen here.)

    Deepertruth: The History Of Lent, and The Sign Of The Cross

    in Religion

    One of the most visible signs that identify Catholics together as a group is “The Sign Of The Cross” which depicts the cross as a sign and a prayer of the Trinity, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.


    In Baptism, we are given a mark sealed by the Trinity. Jesus instructs the Church to Baptize the nations in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. The Sign of the Cross reflects this mark given to us at our Baptism. Just as in the time of Ezekiel, we have a choice to follow God or follow the way of the world.


    The book of Revelation also speaks of another mark on the forehead of those who reject God. We definitely do not want this mark! Through the Sacraments, we are made clean so that before the Lord, we are made innocent (Rev 14:4-5). Just as it was in the day of Ezekiel, we have a mark that is like the original “X” and it is made into a “+”.

    Restoring All Things in Christ, with David Rodriguez

    in Religion

    St. Anselm famously described theology as "faith seeking understanding." All of us are called to Faith by Christ, and we all want to understand what we believe and why as Catholics. These days there is much confusion regarding the Catholic Faith and so it becomes even more important for each of us to deepen our Faith and study theology. Join us as host David Rodriguez (M.Th.) takes us through traditional sources of our Basic Catholic Faith:  the Sacred Liturgy, the Sacred Scriptures, the Fathers, Doctors and Saints of the Church, the encyclicals of the Popes, and the Roman Catechism edited by St. Charles Borromeo and published under Pope St. Pius V. This series focuses on the Creed, The Sacraments, The Ten Commandments, and the Life of Prayer. Listeners may also call in with their questions as each session includes time for Q&A. This program is sponsored by the St. Vincent Ferrer Foundation of Texas, dedicated to recovering and restoring of our traditional Catholic Faith.
