November 12: Key Moments in the History of the Catholic Church
Our host: Father Matt
As Catholics, we are heirs to a remarkable heritage. It is a fascinating story of adventure, rebellion, tragedy, and triumph. Please join us as we continue the journey through history. This month we move from the late 1800s to the 20th
The First Vatican Council and a World at War.
The First Vatican Council,
the 20th council
held, was convoked by Pope Pius IX
to deal with “modern problems” facing the Church. What was the Pope was referring to? Why wasn’t the council formally dissolved? What happened? Two doctrinal constitutions: Dei Filius
, and Pastor Aeternus
, were accepted. Why are these important today?
In the midst of WWI, three childern experience a mircale. The Virgin shares profetic secrets and requests all soulds to pray the rosary. What were the messages? How did this mircale later influence Pope Pius the XII? By what action was this Pope remembered during WWII? Don’t miss this interesting period in Catholic history.
