Season 4, The Catholic Home, Episode 5: Establishing and Maintaining Catholic Homes in a Mission Country (Part 2)

Agnus Dei and Relics

Agnus Dei and Relics

In Part 1 we heard all about two Australians' "theological travels" which eventually led them into the true fold and into a mission locality to boot. Wow! What an adventure that was!

The exciting journey continues as Phil explains some of the amazing resources his family uses regularly to fulfill the various duties in the Catholic home and how his wife accepted the challenge to take their children out of the "Recognize and Resist" school in order to home-school them, and thus provide a proper Catholic education. Louise's family do things a little bit differently, and she has some delightful insights and ideas of how to make the home vibrant, and one's family flourish, in the fullness of our beautiful and rich Faith!

Louise even puts the hostess, Theresa, on the spot and assumes the interviewer's role towards the end. There is talk about the pioneering days in setting up the Australian Catholic mission, some amusing incidents that go part and parcel with such an endeavour - and German chocolate even gets a mention.

The battle for souls continues in the antipodean mission and so does our trio's chat. Please do enjoy!
