October Course: The Second Vatican Council

October has begun, and for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, it brings a nip in the air and a bounty of color and crop. More importantly, it brings to all the Faithful the month of the Most Holy Rosary and the Holy Angels, and the recitation of the beautiful prayer to St. Joseph. Remember to say your daily rosary followed by the prayer to St. Joseph with the intention to gain the indulgences attached to them each day this month, it is a wonderful opportunity to aid the Holy Souls.

For October, we are again releasing a new series. The Second Vatican Council features Father Arnold Trauner hosted by Stephen Heiner, and is based upon the book The Rhine Flows Into the Tiber by Fr. Ralph M. Wiltgen, S.V.D. The text can be purchased at a notably low price in the True Restoration Bookstore here. Topics will include the liturgy, sources of revelation, non-Christian religions, and collegiality, amongst many others.

Ten episodes will be released beginning on Tuesday, 9 October.

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. These inexpensive memberships include access to all of the current season’s releases along with last season.
