    John 2:4 and Christ's Words to His Mother - Fr. Skip Thompson

    In the story of Jesus' first miracle at the Wedding of Cana, many Catholics focus on Mary's words to the servants there, "do whatever he tells you," as a model for Christian piety and action. On today's episode, however, Fr. Skip Thompson, a convert to the Catholic faith, focuses on the words of Our Lord to His Mother in that exchange: "O woman, what have you to do with me? My hour has not yet come." Is this merely a rebuke of Mary? Or is there a lot more to this passage, beginning with the fact that Jesus refers to his mother as "woman" rather than "mother?"

    One More Suggestion: Advice from Hebrews for Today's Crisis - Marcus Grodi

    In the midst of scandals and chaos in the Catholic Church, how should those in Christian leadership conduct themselves? As a former Presbyterian minister tasked with the pastoral care of souls, Marcus Grodi looks at some of the current measures that are being considered by bishops and priests to help establish a "code of conduct" to encourage fidelity, and prevent further scandal. Marcus suggests that maybe the solution to these problems lies not with something new, but rather with a return to something timeless: namely, the clear call in the New Testament letter to the Hebrews, to "strive for peace with all men, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord."

    The Cross, Baptism, and the Eucharist - Marcus Grodi

    Many Christians today see physical expressions of faith as superficial, or unnecessary to the Gospel. For them, salvation can be distilled down to an assent of the mind and affinity of the heart toward God. In the latest episode of Deep in Scripture, Marcus Grodi reflects on how Christ's sacrifice on the Cross, a physical act with eternal spiritual consequences, is an indication of the way that in the age of the Church, God chooses to mediate his grace to us through physical means in the sacraments. Marcus looks at the wealth of evidence from Scripture that points toward this sacramental understanding of the economy of grace.

    What does it mean to be born again? John 3:3-6 - Steve Gleason

    Marcus Grodi welcomes former nondenominational pastor Steve Gleason to the program to discuss the words of Jesus in John 3, when he tells Nicodemus that he must be born again, of water and the spirit. Steve and Marcus reflect on what they thought it meant to be "born again" when they were Protestant Christians, and how they understand this teaching of Our Lord now as Catholics.

    "Hold fast to the traditions you were taught..." 2 Thessalonians 2:15 - Marcus Grodi and Mike Peters

    In this episode, Marcus Grodi and former Evangelical campus minister Mike Peters look at 2 Thessalonians 2:15, where St. Paul admonishes his readers to stay true to the things he has told them about the Gospel. Mike shares how the Bible translations he used in his campus ministry rendered that verse, and how understanding the original intent of Paul's writing helped him better understand the difference between the kind of tradition condemned by St. Paul, and the kind of tradition to which St. Paul urged Christians to hold fast.
