Against the sins of homosexuality (sodomy) the Church has always taught. With Scripture, Tradition and Reason, it is evident that homosexuality is a grave sin that cries to heaven for justice. Lumped together with that detestable act, are bestiality, pedophilia, incest and all unnatural sexual lusts and acts. As Christians we must reject sodomy as a gross sin (like rape, murder, thievery, etc) and do all we can to pray for and guide the erring to justice and virtuous living. Thus we love one another.
Included in the video are 3 paintings of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah with Lot leaving the city. The two songs are a Byzantine Chant “Communion Verse” and Gregorian Chant “Os Iusti”.

Abbot Charles Wright, O.S.B. answers a caller who asks how God can be in purgatory and hell at the same time.
Abbot Charles Wright, O.S.B., conducts retreats, offers spiritual direction and occasionally assists in parish ministry.
After serving in the U.S. Army in Germany, he joined a monastery (now Prince of Peace Abbey) in Oceanside, CA. He attended seminaries in Indiana and Oregon respectively, and was ordained in 1970 after receiving a B.A. and M.A. in Theology. In 1983, the monastery became an abbey and the then-Fr. Charles was appointed the Prior — assistant to the Abbot. After the Abbot retired in 1994, Fr. Charles was elected Abbot and has held that position ever since.
This is a somewhat abridged/alternative version of the most famous litany of the Church, the Litany of the Saints. While creating the video I have not included lyrics, as it is quite easy to understand what is being chanted and uses simple and oft repeated words which even a beginner can follow. Instead, I have included several art works, that depict the Saints. The great men and women of God, who have lived and died in His grace, are always there to intercede for us and to be our loving role models. Not only those mentioned by name in this version, or in other versions of the prayer, but all the Saints of God, please pray for us!
Catholic Answers Senior Apologist Jimmy Akin answers a caller who asks if animals go to Heaven or Hell after they die.
Jimmy Akin was born in Texas and grew up nominally Protestant. At age 20 he experienced a profound conversion to Christ. Planning on becoming a Protestant pastor or seminary professor, Jimmy started an intensive study of the Bible, but the more he immersed himself in Scripture, the more he found it to support the Catholic faith. Eventually, he was compelled in conscience to enter the Catholic Church, which he did in 1992. His conversion story, “A Triumph and a Tragedy,” is published in the book Surprised By Truth.
Akin is a Senior Apologist at Catholic Answers, a member on the Catholic Answers Speakers Bureau, a weekly guest on the global radio program, Catholic Answers LIVE, a contributing editor for Catholic Answers Magazine, and the author of numerous publications, including the books Mass Confusion, The Salvation Controversy, The Fathers Know Best, and Mass Revision.
