Screens and Shallow Learning: Digital Dangers #3 *

3/1/2024
We’ll continue exploring the effects of modern technology on our lives, particularly our mental and spiritual health. As discussed in the last episode, technological tools such as smartphones and state-of-the-art search engines like Google grant us unprecedented access to nearly unlimited information. In addition, algorithms and tracking software lead us through a sea of content calibrated to our interests, which keeps us fixed to our devices. In this episode, we discuss why this is dangerous and what we can do to place ourselves on guard against an overwhelming amount of content, much of which is misleading and potentially harmful. Ultimately we ask, How do we separate the digital wheat from the chaff? These and other salient points will be addressed by Father Jonathan Kopec on this third episode of Digital Dangers.

The SSPX Podcast is produced by Angelus Press, which has as its mission the fortification of traditional Catholics so that they can defend the Faith, and reaching out to those who have not yet found Tradition. What is the SSPX? The main goal of the Society of Saint Pius X is to preserve the Catholic Faith in its fullness and purity, to teach its truths, and to diffuse its virtues, especially through the Roman Catholic priesthood. Authentic spiritual life, the sacraments, and the traditional liturgy are its primary means of bringing this life of grace to souls. Although the traditional Latin Mass is the most visible and public expression of the work of the Society, we are committed to defending Catholic Tradition in its entirety: all of Catholic doctrine and morals as the Church has always defended them. What people need is the Catholic Faith, without compromise, with all the truth and beauty which accompanies it. https://sspx.org

How Does Technology Affect Us? Digital Dangers #2

2/23/2024
Today, in the second part of our ongoing series Digital Dangers, we examine the effects of modern technology on our mental fitness, spiritual well being, and even our physical health. While technology such as smartphones, state-of-the-art search engines, and artificial intelligence give us access to vast reservoirs of information, are we harming ourselves intellectually through the superficial acquisition of knowledge? What adverse effects does this technology have on brain development and can it lead to addiction? Moreover, is technology damaging our capacity to have interpersonal relationships and, most importantly, a relationship with God?

The Final Thought: Why Should I Become Catholic? Apologetics #42

2/9/2024
On the final episode of the Apologetics Series, we answer one last remaining question, “How do we know with certainty that we should join the Catholic Church?” Over the past 41 episodes we have shown that God exists, that His Word is true, that we can find Him, that Jesus is Him, and that the Church was given to us for our salvation. Yet we may still wonder if we should join an institution that has had corrupt leaders throughout history and today appears to be self-contradictory at points. Fr. David Sherry will join us for the final word. View on YouTube:

Judaism: Is the Old Covenant still valid? Apologetics #41

2/4/2024
On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we continue with the “Why Not” questions about what is reasonable to believe. In this episode, we turn our attention to Judaism. The Jewish people were the chosen people of God with whom He made a divine Covenant. Given this, is it true that this Covenant is still valid? Following the coming of Jesus Christ and the founding of the Church, is it right to practice Judaism today? View on YouTube:

Mormonism: A False American Religion – Apologetics #40

1/13/2024
On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we continue with the “Why Not” questions about what is reasonable to believe. In this episode, we examine Mormonism or, as it is officially known, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. On the surface, there are many similarities between Mormon families and traditional Catholic families. Their values seem to match up. But even though the surface is similar, there are substantial differences between Mormon beliefs and Christianity. View on YouTube:

Is the God of Islam the Same as the God of Abraham? Apologetics #39

1/10/2024
On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we continue with the “Why Not” questions about what is or is not reasonable to believe by examining Islam. Islam is the second largest religion in the world behind Christianity and therefore warrants special attention. To help unpack this religion, we review the so-called “Five Pillars of Islam” while exploring whether it has some of the same basic roots as Judaism and Christianity. View on YouTube:

False Pagan Religions: Animism, Hinduism, and Buddhism -Apologetics #38

12/22/2023
On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we’ll start our last batch of episodes – those dealing with the “why not” questions about what is reasonable to believe. Today we’ll be looking at the basic premise of Paganism – why Polytheism, animism, spiritualism, even if they have been at times very popular in history, and seem to be trendy now, simply don’t make sense to the reasonable person. We’ll see how, based on logic, the ideas inherent in Hinduism, Buddhism, and native or aboriginal spiritualities simply won’t match up to reality. You can find notes to all these episodes at sspxpodcast.com/apologetics, as well as all our previous episodes. There as well, you can find a link to help support this project.

Catholics Worship Mary! …and other Myths About Saints: Apologetics #37

12/15/2023
This is one of the most common objections to the Catholic Faith, namely that Catholics pray to Mary and the saints instead of going directly to Jesus. This criticism, common among Protestants, is often rooted in the Bible’s directive to go directly to Jesus and His Father.

Is it Reasonable to Believe in the 7 Sacraments? – Apologetics #36

12/8/2023
Today we’ll see how the other 5 sacraments are reasonable and logical. Can we show that Our Lord instituted these sacraments? Can we show that there is an unbroken tradition of belief in them, and that there is there a better answer than “the Catholic Church says so”?

District Superior of Asia Fr. Patrick Summers – Interview Series #9

12/2/2023
On this special episode of the SSPX Interview Series, we're joined by Fr. Patrick Summers, the District Superior of Asia for the Society of St. Pius X. Father Summers shares some of the unique challenges and stories of the life of Tradition in the missions and encourages us to pray that the Lord send more laborers into the vineyard.

How Can We Prove the Eucharist is Our Lord? – Apologetics #35

11/25/2023
On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we begin the first of two episodes on the sacraments, and show that not only are they necessary, but they are rooted in Scripture. In this installment, we look specifically at the concept of the Mass as a sacrifice and the priesthood. Does God really require sacrifice? And what about the Mass itself? Did Our Lord intend us to take Him literally when he declared that the Eucharist really is His Body and Blood? By examining Scripture and Tradition, show this to be true.

Sexual Morality, Transgenderism, LGBTQ+, Abortion, Euthanasia – Apologetics #34

11/18/2023
On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we continue discussing the concept of morality with Fr. Palko. In the last two episodes, we looked at morality in a theoretical and principled way. Today, we examine specific moral issues while tackling traditional moral positions that contemporary society views as “outdated" regarding sexuality, abortion, euthanasia, organ transplants, and more.

What’s More Important, Morality or Conscience? – Apologetics #33

11/11/2023
Last episode, we saw that an objective moral law exists. Now we begin to explore what this means for our lives. Are there circumstances where the same action can be more or less bad? What role does conscience play in making moral choices? Does an individual’s conscience “reign supreme,” as is often said? Finally, there is often talk about how we should not judge someone’s motivations, but is that true?

Is There Such a thing as Morality?- Apologetics #32

11/5/2023
On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we continue our Apologetics Series by looking at the concept of morality. This is the first of three episodes on the morality, with each one examining a unique spect of this topic. First, we explore if there is such a thing as objective and universal moral truth. For instance, are moral rules the same for all people across cultures? If there is universal morality, how do we know what it is and who is in charge of enforcing these rules?

Is it Logical that Hell and Purgatory Would Exist?- Apologetics #31

10/28/2023
On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we continue the Apologetics Series by looking at what is commonly called, “The Last Four Things” – that is: heaven, hell, purgatory, and judgement. What happens after we die? Is it fitting that we will be judged by God? And is it compatible with our understanding of God that we could either spend an eternity in a paradise beyond our knowledge, or in a place of suffering that will never end? These topics and more will be addressed in this episode.

Do We Have a Choice in Our Own Salvation? – Apologetics #30

10/21/2023
On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we’ll continue our Apologetics Series by furthering our understanding on one of the more complex issues dividing various Christian denominations – Predestination. We know that God knows all things – so He knows whether we will achieve salvation. So, why does it matter whether we do anything for our own justification, if God already knows the outcome? Protestants will further say we can’t help with our own salvation since we are so damaged. What’s the answer?

How Do We Save Our Souls? Faith, Works, or Both? – Apologetics #29

10/14/2023
On today’s episode of the SSPX Podcast, we’ll continue our Apologetics Series by looking at Justification – or how to get to Heaven. How are we justified? Did Christ do all the work through Redemption? Do we simply need to believe that His infinite merits are enough or do we need to do something more? The Catholic understanding of justification is one of the major dividing points between the Church and Protestantism, and so Fr. Loop is here to assist us in sorting out this critical but often misunderstood theological concept.
