Jack & Lizzie start their new series on the sacraments by looking - quite naturally - at Baptism. What is it? And how does it change us? What does it mean to be baptised people? The book Jack mentioned isn't called 'What's in a name?' at all, but rather The Power of the Name, by Kallistos WareBy Jack Regan & Lizzie Wakeling
 
In a rare unplanned episode, Jack and Lizzie discuss vaccine ethics, Catholic humour, ecumenical councils, 'Catholic guilt' and the Primary of Conscience. Note that this episode was recorded before the new Covid rules were announced and Lizzie (poor Lizzie!) was put in to Tier 4. To get in touch we are @CatholicBants on Twitter or Facebook. Here's …
 
This week, Jack and Lizzie discuss the latest Encyclical from Pope Francis. Yeah, it's like a really long letter where the Pope teaches us stuff - and this one's really good. It's got a lot to say about the world we live in. So, sit back as Jack and Lizzie talk about Francis, Trump, Biden, Nukes, War, Politics, and - of course - banter! Here's the …
 
We're back! Admit it - you've missed us, right? In this first episode of the new season, Jack and Lizzie go through the 'Discover Course' from CCO and talk about the Love of God. Despite the title, the episode isn't actually really about the aforementioned Cory Asbury song, but here is the video Jack refers to.…
 
In possibly our most awesome episode yet, we're joined by a brand new priest. Father Tom Kent was ordained on Saturday July 11th, just six days before we recorded. He sat down to speak to us about his journey, his training, what it's like being a priest and whether (as Jack suggested) he looks at bread in a different way now he's got the power to t…
 
This time, we take a look at some common myths about the Catholic Church that we might hear from our non-Catholic-but-still-Christian friends. Do we worship Mary? Do we think confession is like a carwash? Do we think the bible doesn't matter that much? Do we think there's a scorecard up in Heaven? The answer is clearly NO. Wanna see how we get ther…
 
This week, Jack and Lizzie talk about sainthood and a few of their favourite saints. These are the guys and girls we talk about: The big ones: St John Paul II St Bernadette St Therese of Lisieux St Michael the Archangel St Philip Howard St John Bosco And the ones we briefly touched on: St Clement of Alexandria St Wilfrid St Augustine St Thomas Aqui…
 
Join Jack and Lizzie as they take apart some commonly held - yet totally untrue - assumptions about the Catholic Church. Did the Church help Hitler? Do we hate the gay community? Is the Church full of abusers? Are we anti-women? I mean, it's not the most laugh-out-loud episode, clearly, but hopefully still worth your while. As ever, get in touch on…
 
Jack and Lizzie talk about whether or not we can prove and defend the resurrection. I mean, we can, of course, but it's kinda fun seeing how they get there! They also talk about what it means to have a relationship with the Risen Christ, and a few other random things like escape rooms! As ever, get in touch on Twitter @CatholicBants and if you feel…
 
This week, we're joined by our first guest, the brilliant Father David King, who gets in on the banter and talks to us about life as a priest in the lockdown, about his journey to faith and, most of all, about evangelisation. How can we reach other people and let them know how amazing this whole Jesus thing is? What is evangelisation really about? …
 
Join Jack and Lizzie as they bite off way more than they can chew in an unusually theology-heavy podcast looking at Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body. What does it mean to be human? Why do we have bodies? What is sexuality really all about? And how does that link to the Trinity, the Church, the Incarnation, and, well basically everything!? A…
 
Following on from the last episode on Faith & Science, we take a look at some of science's darker accomplishments and how we decide which tools to use, which to use sparingly, and which to keep in the drawer. It's a good one. I mean, I'm biased, but still... We look at things like 'double effect', abortion, nukes, warfare, drones, AI, and a few oth…
 
We're celebrating the fact that we're still in lockdown by asking if faith and science are compatible..? I mean... (spoiler alert...) they are. They totally are. But it's worth having a listen to see how we get there! Also - check out 'Easter Journey 2020' a beautiful set of reflections for young people, which Lizzie is involved in - https://easter…
 
In this - shorter than usual - episode, we reflect on what it means to be a Catholic Christian in this time of Covid-19, Lockdown, and online Mass streaming. We try to look for the positives, try to help you to make sense of it, and offer a few tips for staying connected and looking after yourself and each other. Yes, even amid a global pandemic, t…
 
This week Jack and Lizzie shamelessly retreat into very familiar territory as they talk about youth ministry. What is youth ministry? Who is it for? What's working? What's not? And who is likely to win this year's Champion's League. Okay, well not the last one, but definitely the others. Enjoy! As ever, you can get in touch by Emailing mail@jackreg…
 
For Episode 3, we’re talking about songs. Mostly Christian ones, but we’ve thrown in a few wildcards as well. If you want to get in touch, we’re on Twitter @CatholicBants. Here – before you ask - are the songs we discuss with some links. Enjoy… Our God Reigns - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2ApFDxq-ew Daughter of God -https://www.youtube.com/wat…
 
We're back for Episode 2, and we're talking about books! Catholic books, Christian (but not Catholic) books, and books that make us think. Follow us on Twitter @CatholicBants Here, in no particular order, the books we discussed... Rebuilt, Fr Michael White and Tom Corcoran Forming Intentional Disciples, Sherry Weddell Divine Renovation, Fr James Ma…
