Fr. Robert Barron on the Pope Francis Interview

I am a bit late in posting this video, but here is some commentary from Fr. Barron, regarding the big interview with Pope Francis that was all over the media several weeks ago:



If you would like to read the entire interview, you can find it here. (I admit I got only about halfway through it, but I hope to finish reading it when I get some time.)

The Alleged Conflict Between Science and Faith

Here is a talk given in Ireland by a British priest and physicist, Fr./Dr. Andrew Pinsent, on "The Alleged Conflict Between Science and Faith":

The Election of Pope Francis - Remixed

The same gentleman who created the video which I posted as "Pope John Paul II Remixed" has done another video for the election of Pope Francis. This one is not quite as good as the first one, but it's entertaining, and it was nice to revisit Pope Francis's election:



In the video description on YouTube, the video creator says that he already has plans for a third video. I will watch for it and try to post it here when it's available.

Fr. Robert Barron on "The Child-Free Life"

I am a bit out of date in posting this video, as the Time magazine article mentioned by Fr. Barron is from a few months ago, but this is a good commentary:



Fr. Barron also made a follow-up video on the same topic:

NaPro Technology: Morally acceptable medical treatment for infertility

The two videos below provide testimonials on NaPro Technology and the Creighton Model of natural family planning. NaPro Technology is a system of treatments for infertility and other reproductive health issues that aims to treat the underlying cause of the problem. The Creighton Model is a method of charting a woman's cycle in order to postpone or achieve pregnancy, that can also help doctors to diagnose underlying medical issues. The two methods work together, and are fully in accord with Catholic teaching on sexuality and openness to life (as opposed to IVF and contraception, both of which separate reproduction from the marital act).





To learn more about NaPro Technology and the Creighton Model, including finding a doctor who is trained in these methods, go to fertilitycare.org.

Jennifer Fulwiler on Atheism, Science, and Belief in God

Catholic blogger Jennifer Fulwiler posted on her blog today about the Explore God campaign which is being heavily promoted in and around Austin, Texas. This campaign appears to be designed to lead people to Christianity, mostly from a non-denominational or inter-denominational Protestant perspective, though I found some information on the site that is somewhat Catholic-friendly.

Jennifer mentions that, to her surprise, she is featured in one of the videos on the Explore God web site. In the video she talks about how she came to Christianity from atheism. Here is the video:



And please do take the time to read Jennifer's blog post if you get a chance. She make some great points about what it really means to have proof of the truth of Christianity.
