changes that have swept through the Church in the last generation have left
many Catholics confused and conflicted in their faith. Yet those responsible

According to Pope Benedict XVI, the clear cause of the crisis of confusion in the Catholic Church today is the popular perception (or misperception) of the Second Vatican Council. But, while the Holy Father insists that Vatican II must be interpreted “in light of Tradition,” progressive theologians continue to seek a complete break with our “unenlightened” past. The resulting doctrinal disorientation has many Catholics wondering, “Is the Church of today the same as the Church of the past? Or has it been changed without telling the faithful?”
In this three CD series, Father Shannon Collins provides an oasis of clarity and Catholic conviction amidst the turmoil that still surrounds the real meaning of Vatican II. Wielding the two-edged sword of Holy Scripture and the infallible teaching of the Church, Father Collins cuts through the confusion to reveal how the essential nature of the Church is changeless, and so true renewal in the Church must be connected with what has come before.
The Narrow Way
Perhaps nothing better illustrates the modern challenge to the faith than errors regarding the reality of eternal damnation. Now, Father zeroes in on the controversial topic of hell… and who goes there. As you listen, you’ll discover how the modern effort to deny the traditional teaching about hell reveals ignorance of the true nature of sin. Unpacking the unchanging wisdom of Holy Scripture and Tradition regarding hell, Father brings to light the fact that Christian hope is not just wishful thinking, but rooted in the reality of both God’s mercy and His justice.
In His Angels and in His Saints
The former rector of Mother Angelica’s Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Father Collins witnessed the sisters there reviving the traditional devotion to the relics of the saints. At a time when many holy relics have ended up in the attics of religious houses, the closets of parish churches, or worse, Father reveals that their veneration is not a matter of mere nostalgia, but an “occasion of grace” and physical contact with the transformation in Christ that can only come from a connection with the Apostolic Faith.
The Two Shall Become One
Tackling the thorny topic of modern marriage, Father confronts the common charge that a substantial break with the past occurred regarding the wife’s submission to her husband. Now you’ll discover how John Paul II’s contributions regarding the family, the dignity of human person and the mutual subjection between husband and wife actually support the Church’s Traditional teaching that God brings order to the equality of dignity between man and wife.
The Truth Exposed
Illuminated by insights from sources as diverse as Pope John Paul II and J.R.R. Tolkien, Father Collins exposes the truth that limiting ourselves to the last forty years of Catholicism is like only reading the last forty pages of a 2000 page book. Simply put, those who refuse to see that Vatican II must be understood in light of the previous ecumenical councils limit both themselves and their understanding. Order today and discover how to take advantage of the Tradition of the Church to live your faith today!
What You’ll Discover:
Why the essential nature of the Church cannot be changed
How confusion in Church today stems from disdain of what has come before
Why Catholic education should not abandon good Q&A catechisms
What Holy Scripture, the Saints and private revelations say about hell
Why the double element of mortal sin requires a double punishment
Where the key to restoring marriage is found in Holy Scripture
How the greatest disciples of the Church have been women
Why Christianity is an incarnational religion
What are the different “classes” of relics
Why true renewal must always be connected with what has come before
And much more…
Now on CD, Fr. Patrick Brannan reveals the authentic teaching of the fundamental document of Vatican II, the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, Lumen Gentium. A Jesuit for over fifty years, and a gifted linguist, Father Brennan was personally involved in the Council. Although Vatican II was primarily a “pastoral council,” Father reveals that Lumen Gentium was one of two dogmatic statements in which the Council explicitly and formally proclaimed the Church’s teaching on fundamental issues of our Faith.
More than any other document of Vatican II, Lumen Gentium (Light to the Nations) reveals the council’s desire to proclaim the Gospel and bring the light of Christ to all men. As you listen, you’ll uncover how it sets forth the nature of the Church’s mission according to the tradition of earlier councils, but in a way that speaks to everyone, not just Catholics. Because the Church is the source of Christ’s light and she wants to share it with the whole world.
All Catholics know that the Church is hierarchical, but the lines that separate the work of the clergy and the laity have been blurred, causing great confusion. But was this mandated by the council? As Father unpacks how Lumen Gentium actually maintains the fundamental distinction in the Church between clergy and laity, you’ll discover what it means that we are all one body, but different members. And how all the baptized share in the priestly, kingly and prophetic offices of Christ.
Lumen Gentium closes with a section on the Blessed Virgin Mary as the Mother of God, the Mother of the Church, and the Model Christian. Originally intended as a separate document, you’ll learn why the council Fathers insisted on making Marian doctrines an integral part of the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church. Because, as Father explains, understanding Mary is absolutely essential to understanding the Church.
How to bear witness to the faith and love of Christ through the family
Which teachings of Vatican II are dogmatic and which are pastoral
How the council preached to everyone - not just Catholics
What are the amazing parallels between Mary and the Church
Why the Church is always countercultural
What it really means that the “Church of Christ” subsists in the Catholic Church
Why Mary’s “fiat” was not a “one time thing”
What path the Church must follow in the modern world
Why freedom doesn’t mean doing whatever you want to do
