April Course: Iota Unum

Happy Easter! The end of Lent has, as always, brought the eternal joys of the Redemption and Resurrection alongside the temporal promise of spring. And this year, it has also brought a brand new radio program to True Restoration! Iota Unum features Father Arnold Trauner of the Mater Boni Consilii Institute and is hosted by Stephen Heiner. This series will cover the book Iota Unum: A Study of the Changes in the Catholic Church in the 20th Century by Professor Romano Amerio, which is available at the True Restoration Bookstore: https://www.truerestoration.org/press/iota-unum/.

The April course of Iota Unum will consist of 10 episodes to be released throughout the month, with the series continuing next broadcast season. It will begin with an introduction to Father Trauner and to the book. The first two episodes (Episode 0.0 and 0.5) are free to the public. Watch for the first episode on April 6.

For those who don’t yet have a True Restoration membership and find the Annual Membership beyond their reach, we are now offering a very affordable Monthly Membership which grants access to all of this season’s new releases (including Iota Unum) and all of last season as well! The details can be found here: https://www.truerestoration.org/monthly/.

Listen in with Father Trauner and Stephen Heiner to understand why the modern world and Catholicism are incompatible!
