The Catholic Faith. On Demand.
Jesus and His Church with Cardinal Dolan
In this presentation from the Napa Institute, Timothy Cardinal Dolan speaks with great clarity and pastoral care about one of the greatest challenges facing the Church today: protecting the spousal oneness of Jesus Christ and his Church. He describes our current times as a post-ecclesial world, in which individuals accept "spirituality," but not "religion," and want to "believe," but not to "belong." Cardinal Dolan proposes a need to revive the perspective of the Church as family—a communion of people which we belong to, rather than choose. He states that to be baptized into the Catholic faith is to have a birthmark we cannot erase. "What God has joined, man must not divide" (Mark 10:9).
