Season 10, April Course: The Councils

The penitential season is nearly over... has your Lent been as fruitful as it ought? Remember that Our Lord will never be outdone in generosity; the Sacred Triduum is the perfect time for additional penance and alms. And the joys of Easter, and spring, and “Alleluia!” will soon be with us!

The Easter season will bring with it our April course. Father Arnold Trauner returns with host Stephen Heiner this month for a third season of The Councils. They will cover the Third and Fourth Lateran Councils, both Councils of Lyons, and the Councils of Vienne and Constance. Finally, they’ll wrap up the season with a two-part miniseries on the Council of Florence, which addressed various Schismatics. Eight episodes will be released throughout the month of April beginning during Easter week.

Please note that all of the most recent episodes of True Restoration programming are accessible only by our Monthly and Annual members.
