Pastoralia, Episode 3: Godparents, General Confession, & What is Permissible on Sundays

On this month's episode of Pastoralia we will be discussing several topics that face Catholics at some point in time in their lives. We will be starting with Godparenting - how many "children" should I have, who's qualified, can I ask a priest, what are the qualifications, etc. We will move into the clerical dress topic of clericals vs. cassocks - is Father a modernist for wearing clericals? We will then talk Sundays - so what "can" we do on Sundays? More importantly, what should we be doing...


Pastoralia, Episode 2: Etiquette and Comportment at Mass

Following last month's episode on proper etiquette towards clerics, this month's Pastoralia takes on etiquette and comportment at Mass. We will be discussing a wide variety of topics that at one time or another, we have all wondered to ourselves what we should be doing, such as: When should one arrive and leave for Holy Mass? What should I be wearing for Sunday Mass versus a weekday Mass? If the baby is crying, what do I do? Should there be a crying room or not? Is there a "cell phone...


Pastoralia, Episode 1: Etiquette Towards Clerics

Restoration Radio returns to the airwaves in 2014 with the launch of Pastoralia. This show will attempt to answer important questions that aren't always addressed in sermons or catechisms. Our first episode takes on an important topic: how should we behave towards priests in and out of church? How should we conduct ourselves in correspondence? What are general principles to help guide our behavior? We will address these and other issues. Join us as host Stephen Heiner discusses these...


Work of Human Hands, Episode 7: Introductory Rites - The Meet and Greet

On this month's episode of Work of Human Hands, we will now transition from laying the groundwork of the New Mass by the revisers into looking forensically at the changes themselves. We begin with the Introductory Rites, and it does not take more than the sign of the cross to begin seeing the radical makeover, the prayers stripped, and the theology revolutionarily changed in the mass of Paul VI. We will begin by discussing the Novus Ordo "meet and greet" theology where we revisit the...


Work of Human Hands, Episode 6: Ready for Assembly

On this month's episode of Work of Human Hands, we will be discussing the results of the groundwork that was laid out in last episode, where we discussed the idea of theological makeover of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as an assembly. With all the groundwork in place to radically re-make the liturgy, now we focus on what those re-made aspects resulted in as it relates to the externals of both the Rite of Paul VI itself, as well as the externals of art, architecture, and furnishings in...


Work of Human Hands, Episode 5: The Cleverness of the Revisers

On this month's episode of Work of Human Hands, we will be discussing in great detailThe Ottaviani Intervention, it's background, principal objections, effects, and key figures. Anyone familiar with the fight for Tradition will know well the name Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani, but might not be quite familiar with his earth-shaking criticisms of the New Mass of Paul VI. When we study these writings, we see clearly that His Eminence attacked the New Mass on the level of doctrine and morals, not...


Work of Human Hands, Episode 4: The Mass As An Assembly

On this episode of Work of Human Hands, we dive into the "nuts and bolts" of the fundamental theological changes in the Novus Ordo Mass from the Traditional Latin Mass. We talk about the very foundation that was laid which has caused most of us to experience the abominations that we have had to endure at one point or another. We will cover the topics of Boyer's idea of the Mass as an "assembly" of the people of God, the destruction of the fundamental understanding of the Real Presence, the...


Work of Human Hands, Episode 3: Latin to the Vernacular - Lost in Translation

On this month's episode of Work of Human Hands, we will be continuing on to Chapter 4, which discusses what exactly was lost in the translation from the Latin to the Vernacular, and that these changes are no small matter. We will discuss the dangerous and ambiguous wording of Vatican II's document on the Sacred Liturgy (Sacrosanctum Concilium) which has allowed the novelties which are realized today. Further, we will discuss why, for 1600 years, Latin was absolutely preserved as the...


Work of Human Hands, Episode 2: The Creation of the New Mass

On this episode of Work of Human Hands, we will springboard from chapters 1 and 2 into chapter 3, which discusses the background and the cast of characters involved in the creation of the "New Mass." We will once again revisit the usual cast of characters: Jungmann, Boyer, and the biggest sinister name in the entire process, that of Archbishop Annibale Bugnini, a freemason and the architect of the destruction of the Roman Rite. We will tie in the building blocks of the experimental Easter...


Work of Human Hands, Episode 1: Old Mass or New Mass - What's the Fuss About?

Another in a series of new shows for Season 3 is Work of Human Hands, sponsored by Roman Catholic Archive, ( a publisher of the beautiful Pre-1955 Altar Missal. Episode 1 of Work of Human Hands will start with Chapters 1 and 2 of the book, Work of Human Hands. ( In this show, we will discuss the genesis of every traditional Catholic's journey to tradition - the Mass itself. Is...


Work of Human Hands, Episode 0: Introduction

In 2010, Father Anthony Cekada released his blockbuster masterwork Work of Human Hands: A Theological Critique of the Mass of Paul VI. Since that time, the work has been reviewed the world over and has received critical acclaim from the Catholic world as the definitive work explaining, in a methodical study, the theological break from Catholicism that is expressed in the rite of Paul VI. Father's erudition, clarity of expression, and facile wit has attracted readers of all ages to further...


S2, Flagship Show, Ep31: Season 2 Hosts Show & Round Table

S2, From the Pulpit, Ep15: Time and Death

Original Air Date: November 29, 2013 On this episode of From the Pulpit, as we close out both Season 2 of Restoration Radio, and From the Pulpit. We conclude with sermons reflecting on two focal points of the month of November: time and death. These two sermons are a font of material for meditation and reflection on these devastating subjects that we all must keep in the forefront of our minds, not just in the month of November. We close the season as we opened it, with these sermons being...


S2, From the Pulpit, Ep14: Have Confidence in God

Original Air Date: November 21, 2013 On this episode of From the Pulpit, we will be reminded to have confidence in God. Let's face it: it happens. We grow tired, we get worn down, we get tired and at times, it can seem like we are losing the battle. This is what is commonly called "battle fatigue" in war, and it is a common thing to befall Catholics who are trying to uphold, practice, defend, and spread the unchanged Catholic faith. Too often we feel as if we did not express our thoughts...


S2, Devotions with Bishop Dolan, Ep7: Relics

Original Air Date: November 23, 2013 On this episode of Devotions with Bishop Dolan, too often we have heard the Protestant objections to the veneration of relics as something morbid and macabre, but can we defend their usage and meaning to those who object? Do we understand ourselves as Catholics why the Church uses and classifies relics? In the finale of Devotions with Bishop Dolan, we discuss holy relics: their history, their meaning, their role in the Catholic Church and their use...


S2, From the Pulpit, Ep13: The Evil of Venial Sin

Original Air Date: November 17, 2013 On this episode of From the Pulpit, how often do we think of the venial sins we commit and meditate upon how even the smallest of sin offends Almighty God beyond our ability to comprehend? Are we the type of Catholic that falls into the trap and the common condition to believe that as long as we are not committing mortal sin, that we are doing just fine? Are we truly striving for Heaven, or are we simply content with trying to "make it" to purgatory? Do...


S2, Flagship Show, Ep30: Ordinations and the Priesthood

Original Air Date: November 8, 2013 On a special edition of the Flagship Show, we present a live show recorded on November 6, 2013 at Most Holy Trinity Seminary in Brooksville, Florida on the occasion of the ordination to the priesthood of Father Bede Nkamuke. Stephen Heiner sat down with Father(s) Oscar Saavedra, Daniel Ahern, Stephen McKenna, and Charles McGuire to discuss the significance of a priestly ordination and to reflect on their own ordinations. In a rarely heard perspective on...


S2, From the Pulpit, Ep11: The Holy Rosary and All Saints

Original Air Date: October 31, 2013 On this episode of From the Pulpit, we continue with our October themed selection of shows on the Holy Rosary. As we round out October, the month of the Holy Rosary, and move into November, we must keep in mind the reflections we have had this month on the Holy Rosary. On From the Pulpit, we have tried to provide spiritual boosters in the form of sermons to give food for thought and reflection for meditation on the Holy Rosary. On tonight's broadcast, we...


S2, From the Pulpit, Ep10: How to Pray the Rosary Well

Original Air Date: October 24, 2013 On this episode of From the Pulpit, the subject of the Holy Rosary may seem like a topic which Catholics think they know enough about, and it is a topic which they have probably had no shortage of Catechesis upon, but is it any coincidence that most Catholics admit to having trouble either praying the Rosary consistently, or praying it well? Why is this, if indeed, the Rosary is so "thoroughly understood?" The truth is that we must augment our spiritual...


S2, Devotions with Bishop Dolan, Ep6: The Holy Rosary

Original Air Date: October 19, 2013 On this episode of Devotions with Bishop Dolan, we will discuss probably the most popular devotion practiced amongst Catholics today: The Holy Rosary. Without a doubt the most well-known devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, it is yet impossible to have enough love for and to focus enough attention on this most powerful weapon given to the faithful from on High to grow in love of God, fight off the temptations of the devil, conquer personal sin and...
