Elevator Pitch: God works intentionally. Mary was chosen by God and set aside to be different than everyone else. Christ’s Kingdom is here and now, booyeah!

The whole ball of yarn: We talk about three things in this episode: Mary and her attributes, the mystery’s of Christ early life, and the Kingdom of God.

The Lord works with purpose, and when were talking about His one and only Son, nothing was going to get past Him. Mary was a virgin, so Christ could be conceived by the Holy Spirit and God would be Christ’s one and only Father. Mary is the new Eve, mother of the living. she freely cooperated with the Lord.

No less attention was given to the early life of Christ. The Bible only gives a brief glimpse into the life of Christ and grants us what is necessary for our salvation. Every story shared serves a very specific purpose. God began the fulfillment of His kingdom through Christ’s death and resurrection. We as the Church are the seed, the beginning of that kingdom.

Join us with special guest, Nick Padley, as the bells from the elevator outside our hotel room ding (yes, now you will be distracted by the dings in the podcast).

Elevator Pitch: Jesus is the Son of God and the son of Mary. True God and true man. Fully God and fully man.

The Yarn-ball Unraveled: The Trinity is a mystery but we attempt to crack it open here as we discuss that Jesus is the Son of God. We are also sons and daughters of God but in a different way. sites list He says, “my father” but instructs us to pray, “our father.” The Word became flesh for us men and for our salvation but more specifically:

  1. in order to save us by reconciling us with God (457)
  2. so that thus we might know God’s love (458)
  3. to be our model of holiness (459) – love one another as I have loved you
  4. to make us partakers of the divine nature (460)
“What the Catholic faith believes about Mary is based on what it believes about Christ, and what it teaches about Mary illumines in turn its faith in Christ (487).” The dogma of the Immaculate Conception teaches that she was born without original sin, meaning she didn’t have concupiscence, meaning she didn’t have the inclination to sin. She still had free will but her will was perfectly aligned with God’s!
