In this episode of the Catholic Link podcast, Fr. Rob is back again and this time, he talks about the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Fr. Rob reveals that in the past he struggled to fully understand the Assumption of Mary and other Mariology topics. It seems, though, that he has come around. Fr. Rob discussed the theological implications for the Assumption, and its patristic roots to the early Church Fathers. Finally, he talks about how we are called to live our eternity on this side of life. Meaning, we live Heaven or Hell on this side of life and then, life in eternity is a continuation of that in the most complete way. So, enjoy this podcast about the Assumption.
Listen to the previous episode where Fr. Rob talks about St. Clare of Assisi: Everyone knows St. Francis and most people probably know that St. Clare worked closely with St. Francis. However, as Fr. Rob explains, many may not know that St. Clare provided support to St. Francis in a truly unique way. Many times, saints come off with these “crazy” tendencies in order to look less holy. St. Philip Neri, for example, would shave only half of his face. St. Francis had similar tendencies where he tied himself to a donkey, removed his clothes, and allowed the donkey to drag him through the streets of Assisi–pretty intense to say the lease. Fr. Rob explains that St. Clare helped tame some of those quirks of St. Francis.
