November Course: The Summa Theologiae

All Saints’ Day has brought in November, the month dedicated to the Holy Souls in Purgatory. True Restoration encourages all of our listeners and followers to take advantage of the generosity Mother Church offers us to aid the Church Suffering this month, including visiting a cemetery to pray for the Faithful Departed from 2 November through 9 November. Let us always remember those Catholics who fought this fight before us. Fidelium animae, per misericordiam Dei, requiescant in pace. Amen.

As the liturgical year draws to a close at the end of November, so will our broadcast season. To close Season 7, we present a new series studying The Summa Theologiae by St. Thomas Aquinas. Father Arnold Trauner, IMBC will be hosted by Stephen Heiner in this all-important venture. The Summa is widely available, but for those interested in free online access, it can be found here. Father Trauner encourages listeners not to be intimidated, but rather to be patient and take this endeavor slowly.

Ten episodes will be released beginning on Thursday, November 2.

All of the most recent episodes of True Restoration programming are accessible only to our members. In an effort to bring quality Catholic content to all who seek it and in response to frequent requests, this season we are offering Monthly Memberships.
