Joseph Pearce Reflects on the Life of Pope Benedict XVI
"Talk to you about the life of Benedict, the 16th. By the way, how old is he today? Now, last week, he celebrated 95th birthday. So he's had a long, long arduous life. That's hard for me to believe that he could be 95, my goodness. Now, so let's talk about his life. Obviously, German, his last name, ratzinger, I assume in your book, you go through his life from the beginning. Yeah, basically that the book is a part of the fee and an overview of the legacy. So it's not a conventional biography or Benedict the 16th, but it does tell the story from the beginning from his childhood where of course he grew up as a child under the tyranny of Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich. So he knows what totalitarian secularism is. Because he experienced it firsthand. As did of course St. John Paul the second with his experience of communism and the Nazis are both. So these men know the dangers of the absence of God in human affairs because they experienced it firsthand as young men. And
Why Joseph Pearce Wrote 'Defender of the Faith' on Pope Benedict XVI
"Decidedly literary person and a man of great faith. His name is Joseph pierce. He's been on the program before talking about many books. His books on Chesterton and souls and eats it in so many others. He has a new book out about someone you may have heard of, Benedict the 16th. I think you can tell from the name that he was Pope. Remember, Benedict the 16th, a biography titled defender of the faith by our friend Joseph pierce, Joseph pierce, welcome back. Great to see you. The greatest year again, Eric, it's been some time. Good to see you again. It has. And I just have to say, congratulations on the book. It's a beautiful book. I may not be a Catholic, but I am a Christian and I have been a huge admirer of so many Catholic Christians through the years. Obviously, Chesterton at the top of the list. But Benedict the 16th. Always, in awe of him, his leadership, his intellectual abilities, his fierceness as a defender of the faith. So it seems appropriate to me that you titled the book defender of the faith. What was it that led you, Joseph, to write this biography? Well, like you, Eric, I've been an admire of Benedict XVI for many years since time when he was cardinal ratzinger prior to that. We need to remember that as well as the relatively few years he was poked. He was St. John Paul the second's white hand man for a quarter of a century prior to that. So this man was basically the most powerful man in the church apart from St. John Paul the second for a period of a third of the century. And he's a time I think of a restoration for the church after what we might call the madness and miasma of the modernism of the 1970s where the world where the church or at least certain members of the church were seduced into trying to become like the world to sort of follow the world and you and I both had my chance to turn and Chesterton said we don't want a church that will move with the world. We want to charge that will move the world. And I think this St. John Paul the second and Benedict the 16th moved the world rather than moving with it. And there's a crucial difference. I think you're quite right. And I

Writer Andrew Klavan Describes the Ultimate Freedom of Christianity
"And we're back one on one with Andrew Cleveland. Let's go there. I wish we had hours to discuss it, so let me see if I can couple two things together. You talked about your 50 year journey towards Christ and towards the foundation of this civilization, which is our savior. Then you use the phrase in your last podcast. Mental slavery. That the left has created that woke ism is a form of mental slavery. Can you artificially strain this? But let's talk about that concept of mental slavery, and let's talk about why Christianity is the ultimate freedom in terms of, yes, it's about sacrifice. Yes, it's about pain. Yes, it's about the authority of God. But as the St. John Paul said, freedom isn't the freedom to buy Playboy. It's making the choice to do the right thing. That's the beauty of freedom. Right. I'll let you free. I think the most important meant not the most important one of the important things about Christianity is it's a path to forgiveness. And if you have a path where you can say, oh, you know, I did that wrong. And God says, hey, turn around, start doing it right. The prodigal son, the minute the father sees him on the road. He runs off to meet him. That's the way God treats us. That's a beautiful thing and it's an incredibly liberating thing because it means you can make mistake after mistake mistake and say, oh, I'm turning around. I'm going home. If you can't do that, if you are committed to lies if your whole philosophy is based on an untruth, you have to keep going deeper. And so you start with this stupid little lie, a man can become a woman and you wind up with children being raped. It's an amazing path into darkness. This little bit of intellectual corruption will take you right down the road to hell and it is I've seen this again and again because you have no way of turning back. You have no way of saying, you know what? I'll take the shame and God will take that shame off me. You have no way of saying it. You just stuck with the shame. And people will do anything to avoid

"Never forget the day that we love. We could open the way sometime and escape the hustle and bustle of life. Chris again lyrics on that one these supposed. Well that's again another live version And we did that in the studio for a video and you know you wanna know the sort of how it was written I wrote that when i was first married. My wife's brother's wife was Young twenty one or so and killed in a car crash and so That's about when they opened up the door I was. I never you know. Is that the that the week and families are for the first time and it just it was just. It was just one of the worst moments in my life and then My grandmother died and so sort of fruit to song about. You know the things that trouble us about about. You know our lives in god in the ground. It's sort of you know something. We all have to come to terms with and But i wrote it in in sort of a you know with my with major court so it wasn't really like a downer and i remember playing it on the stoop for my father after my grandmother passed and him just looking at me and just saying well that's pretty deep and I just sort of lifted off of my my dad to say that he was a man of few words And that's a common that song but It's interesting that you picked that because you know people here different songs and i'm always always Surprised by the song that move people and you know even the review of the album. Everybody of pick different songs that were their favorites than And they were all across the board in terms of the album and just of. I went to youtube Into their phone pick tiven mike one relevant to his covenant of albany hislop pill got out of them are just picking the one that was covering under realized Money the second one. But yeah i just listen to indict in dall- and that sound sim. It is a little bit depressing but again it's not it's more authentic understanding i guess of a problem except for taking a look at things the way they are without without a sense of hope acceptance without. That's the one the way you described. The i seem us talking about looking at the people who I absolutely hated that myself. And a couple of days ago images. Ima sleep and a week later sweating and since it went to the crematorium when funding light twice Yet that that that went but it shocked me. Because i've never seen mia will anybody. Momentum was the first than at least that's been well. I just know that you know. I've been to so many wakes and you know the typically the casket is either open when you get there. It's closed and just to doing the family arrived wrong. Suzy young grows very very different than she died. Tragically so it was just a when they opened up the casket. I'll never forget. The sounds. I heard and i just still sticks in me so here but i don't dwell on and look it's part of life. Death is part of life like i said earlier. We're here for a short time. Might as well make the most of it in libya dreams Not afraid of dying and So i just love but Listen to that album they can go on any of the major music platforms They can buy on my website. Ww chris saint john dot com or they can just listen. If you have spotify or any of your napster any of the you know pandora you can find christine john. I'm dreaming and you can just give the album. Listen it's fifteen songs And i help. People like and designate Halo missions dog is while if anyone wants to donate to the puck is enough except the one i don't want i'm sorry interrupted but one of the things i want to mention that about the charity. You know you go on charity navigator navigator and you knew you learn about charities and some of them you know. Ninety five percent of the money goes to administration to the salaries of the executives. And then you always hear these horror stories about people cheating people out of money on a charity. I can say this almost all the money we raised now comes from our own pockets or you know we put a lot of money in and we pay our own travel expenses. So i would say about ninety nine percent of the money that comes in goes to the kids it goes to the people were serving. We're not here to you know be kept small enough that we don't have to hire someone to to run it. We run it ourselves and whatever we bring in we know where every penny goes. And i wouldn't be a part of a charity that that spent the money And other places that the other than where it's where we want it to go absolutely final topic.

I mean i can do yours for you if you want. 'em the bottle of the music funds dot co dot uk Hundreds of thousands of hits. I'm we've only got like a dozen musicians. Have the reason being. Obviously we wanted to get the festival solta out and then we can get the moved. Everything council After that so i am inviting every musician to send me the profile and we put on the battle of visit funds concept. Is i think the key to google and you no. That is the fans of the musicians. Now if the funds shed daily weekly monthly whatever they can do and if they passed on his By amount of people to do it.

"One of the others working good but not both together. Well first of all that by the way people can just go to. Www christine john dot com Bought that also simplify but that version was alive. Version that we did in the studio to make a video out of and the the Studio version it's a little bit more Uptempo and That's been the most successful song hitting number three on the indie charts and so The folks i play with our very talented. And that's not me on the lead guitar playing the cousteau rhythm but That song you you're gonna ask me so i'll tell you what it's about. I was writing producing the album. I'm jianming. I wrote that song in about fifteen minutes at seven o'clock in the morning it just came flying out of me and It's really not about a lost love In the traditional sense it's about you know love affair with alcohol that You know he made me happy until you made me cry pre. I'll never see you again. I called you rosen. I called you cold. I called you. Whiskey called you my friend. It's about you know starting drinking at a young age in really enjoying it and falling in love with it. Until i couldn't really control it any longer and i decided it was time to walk away and it's very hard to walk away from from any sort of thing that you become addicted to hard to walk away from love affair to walk away from alcohol but i did decide that my son was too and i said you know. Never gonna let my boy me drunk. And so i put the bottle down and that's it But that's what that's about. I absolutely love the couldn't find the of aversion to download the voice over night. Willie's i mean little story now I've been invited zombie at least five times. I've lost contact with the guy now but run a charity full often. Children again is very similar to the halo missions is helping learning learning for orphans. Yeah and they want may go either just see yet but in the engine wanting another with family life and never got him but he started sending me these virtual components a said you can make a fortune on them. And you know and it's about these people this is why when given this example when he said give me fifty pounds and monumental more money and koshi think african scam but i i i did i but i sent him the money in. He sent me the goods on might five hundred pound on it because the time you think he's still very similar now they can get things very cheap for the might very cheap and you can sell them for ten times so i might lost some money in lots of holidays in the early two thousands from this passage. I've lost contact. I'm sure could find him against but these african people especially in zambia mean Zombie just the most loving genuine people that love god and love each of a of ever ever met me. Tell us a bit more about what you do what you did what you did. We find them for these 'em zambian people. I know you help us out. My both. my parents were single orphans. and came from nothing. And you know. I had a Situation where i had a serious medical condition and god gave me a second chance. And i promise that i i'd pam back and I i asked. One of my doctors became really close with as a friend. If you would join me in this endeavor and to to to help kids excel. We wanted to help the extreme poor And there's no place like like africa or the caribbean or some other places in central american and other places where there are extremely poor people and we want an in particular help kids because you know they had a You know the in in zambia. The kids have no medical care and for the most part the orphans. Living in the bush is there's many many hundreds of thousands of kids living without apparent because of the aids epidemic and they don't have medical care and they they can't go to school because you need a uniform to go to school and they can't afford so we went over there about four times and he'd ride a couple hours in the morning and way back in a night we we a dental facilities and We performed cataract surgeries on the caregivers. We tested all the kids for malaria. We built a water system For them to irrigate their plants into drink. And we we just Just kept making it bigger and better. Every year we had general surgeon over there with us to And you know the experience was just so rewarding. And you're right the kids They're so religious they They're holding hands at the end of the day. They're so grateful for for their lives and for each other that they have no materials and things of were of any value but they're happy And they were really happy to see Because you know they had You know bad tooth decay and and pull the tooth or to to fill it You know you're you're making a difference in and to treat the kids from la area and other illnesses and then to buy them clothing to go to school. You know we can't. We can't help them for the rest of their lives but we gave the ideas we want to give them a chance at a good life which was to get them in in good medical condition and get them into school and we did for for many hundreds or thousands of them So it was kind of feeling that you get when you do something like that that lasting and and worthwhile that you can't get that feeling from anything material When you give to people who can't give you anything in return and you just see how happy they are. That's a that's a gift from god and and when you you feel that joy. There's nothing like that. I've experienced other than maybe not some moment musical moments when everyone's on the same page but in terms of pure joy nothing like it in the world agree and i think now i know so. I know not just income. 'cause i've been to thailand. Been to live. East eastern standard should countries never been traffic car which had gone now even when the poor. They've got nothing to eat nothing to drink those good for them. This still now. Happy to london or new york. Australia straights the poor kids on the streets. Or if you're hungry actually very sad. But i just amazing to see african nation. Kids happy when they've got nothing really donnelly flew in at night. You know you see fars everywhere asked to one of the folks that were in the mission was who was the guy from zambia. What what was going on. And they said well a lot of the kids at night lights at either end of of you know. Rodents borough and they eat them because there's nothing else to eat and So it's sad. Makes you grateful for all you have. I mean if you're born in in a country like the united states or in the united kingdom or any Any advanced nation. You really need to count your blessings instead of looking so deep for someone to blame for fear station in life and the sense of gratitude and a sense of perseverance and hard work is typically the antidote for a life that you're not happy with And i think we need more of that really do exactly kennesaw. Second sound Look towards the end of the show at Due two shows afoot for musicians is just. So i always do think forty five minutes please. Maximum for listeners them. But but this one. I really liked the song as two second as one of got from you know internet formula is never.

I can't wait every five years to something bad happens to write a song. I just sat down. And i banged up one after another over a couple of months and sometimes you just creates a story in your mind which is really neat and be able to do that. Takes some practice and It's it's easy to write when you're in you're in in a different state of mind especially difficult state of mind to look the emotion slow out. It's another thing to be able to be in a comfortable frame of mind and to be able to you know write music professionally Where you just sit down. And say i'm going to write a song and And i think I think it's going to turn out pretty good. Have just about you know when you perform in likes to people in console even just family. Isn't it nice to see their. You've kind of decided briefly. While i was trying to highlight is very nice to see people's reaction to what you do. I mean you know. I guess if you singing the why the room got ten relatives or friends and the Dickens's either the of a way of looking at is of clicking the fingers or the clapping or just sitting there waiting interested really happy. I mean you know the fantastic when the well. Yeah i mean you know what i typically do is does a company or friends over a family.

That was. Oh yeah well you know one of the funny things. Is you know you get to know other attorneys and judges and you know I think they have them. Think i'm crazy and half of them are really happy about it. you know they see me in the local papers online and all the reviews that are coming out about the salom is in what the heck what what is he doing. Well you know i. I work seventy hours a week.

"Saint john music. Don't come in. We have chris to today. Welcome to the show chris. Thanks for having me andrew. How are you. I'm absolutely brilliant. a. I love music. I love talking to people about music. We all know that music a here love it can be. You can put music on if you angry. You can put it on if you happy you can put on if you just want to meditate sometimes and you can put it on for various reasons and i always have people very similar questions. Because i think there isn't many questions to ask a singer songwriter. Only in a food basics like the first one will be chris. How did you become interested in musicans and make a bevaqua lot of shirl. When i was about five years old. I became an enormous beatles. Fan i had all the memorabilia ian New all their albums were on their albums. And i just really got into music at a very young age and then I wrote a song at seven. Wasn't very good but it was good for seven-year-old thinking When i was about Fifteen or sixteen. I picked up my first guitar. And i took one lesson and self taught myself the rest and started to write songs around sixteen seventeen and i've wrote songs for a long period of time before i decided to put this album. I'm dreaming In march I had been writing for many many years and I'd played out a little bit but i had gone on a cattle roundup out to Big big horn mountain in wyoming and i Punch two hundred fifty cattle data mountain over week. And i fell in love with the the cowboy life and and the horses tonight bought the third when i wrote and he's here with me in new york and i wrote a song called. I need a horse. So i had it produced and then it came out so so pleasing to me. I was I went ahead and did the rest of the And that's how i got here. While was anybody in the family moves. Colo wasn't justice expensive just explained the got you there. One of my relatives was quite a quite a crooner On my mother's side several generations ago but I know my brother plays. You could start but i've been i think the most Enthusiastic and practiced and have been the one to take What i'm feeling be able to convey it into song And if i think and it's funny you mentioned holes is because apologized if you can get traffic in the background. It's just where we live at the moment the whole sides event. My wife absolutely loves in. 'cause we got an hala our september I decided that let's find a whole century. Where in january in the canaries which is almost halfway. I think to america by anyway with not only found one passion that she's always wanted to was is it can buy demos well. It's actually a anonymous century for dogs. Cats she loves all that stuff at you know. She suffered a few mental health problems in life and as a treat most people would want to no go to the war park which will public given in the zoo and the bars and restaurants but she wants to go see around the malls. She says the animals talked to her. You know. I mean obviously not in a way. She can hear them in arrears but the kind of do something to heaven. I guess assigned with music. It talks to people music. I it it. It doesn't matter what language it's being sung in it doesn't matter what instruments are being played if if it's pleasing to any individuals ear it speaks to them and i think you know that's why you know we like indian music and eastern music and They like our western music and so And sometimes you can connect the two and do something. Special like the beatles did and i just played with an indian sitar and flew player and we played one of my songs in the studio and it was really it was magic in the air. It was it was just. Everybody was tuned into each other and the energy was Like nothing i've really felt before So yeah it's I think it's something that The world really not be the same place without it. that's for sure. And you're right about when you talked about listening happy songs and sad songs. They the in many ways music becomes sort of a roadmap of our life when we hear a so it. It takes us back to that time in our life when we heard it on the radio and and it reminds us It's almost like you know your mother's home cooking.

Liberals Burn Their Own Cities, Calling Riots as 'Peaceful Protests'

"Did still. They allow us to discover in his actions shrouded in silence as they are an aura of deep contemplation. Joseph was in daily contact with the mystery hidden from ages past and which dwelt under his roof. This explains for example. Why saint theresa of jesus the great reformer of the carmelites promoted the renewal of veneration to saint joseph in western christianity. The total sacrifice. Joseph surrendered his whole existence to the demands of the messiahs coming into his home becomes understandable. Only in the light of his profound interior life it was from this interior life that very singular commands and constellations came bringing him also the logic and strength that belong to simple and clear souls and giving him the power of making great decisions such as the decision to put his liberty immediately at the disposition of the divine designs to make over to them his legitimate human calling his conjugal happiness to accept the conditions the responsibility and the burden of a family but through an incomparable virginal love to renounce that natural conjugal love. That is the foundation and nourishment of the family. This mission to god this readiness of will to dedicate oneself to all that serves. Him is really nothing less than that. Exercise of devotion which constitutes one expression of the virtue of religion the communion of life between joseph and jesus leads us to consider once again the mystery of the incarnation precisely in reference to the humanity of jesus as the efficacious instrument of his divinity for the purpose of sanctifying man by virtue of his divinity. Christ's human actions were some vic for us causing grace within us by merit or by a certain efficacy. Among those actions. The gospel writers highlight those have to do with the paschal mystery. But they also underscored the importance of physical contact with jesus for healing and the influence jesus exercised upon john the baptist. When they were both in their mothers wounds as we have seen the apostolic witness did not neglect the story of jesus's birth his circumcision his presentation in the temple..

"The oft repeated formula this happened so that there might be fulfilled in reference to a particular event in the old testament serves to emphasize the unity and continuity of the plan which is fulfilled in christ with the incarnation. The promises and figures of the old testament become reality places persons events and writes interrelate according to precise divine commands communicated by angels and received by creatures who are particularly sensitive to the voice of god. Mary is the lord's humble servant prepared from eternity for the task of being the mother of god. Joseph is the one whom god chose to be the overseer of the lord's birth the one who has the responsibility to look after the son of god or deigned entry into the world and accordance with divine dispositions in human laws all of the so-called private or hidden life jesus is entrusted to joseph's guardianship the census journeying to bethlehem for the census in obedience to the orders of legitimate authority. Joseph fulfilled for the child the significant task of officially inserting the name jesus son of joseph of nazareth in the registry of the roman empire. This registration clearly shows that jesus belongs to the human race as a man among men the citizen of this world subject to laws and civil institutions but also savior of the world. Origin gives a good description of the theological significance by no means marginal of this historical fact since the first census of the whole world took place under caesar augustus and among all the others joseph to went to registered together with mary. His wife who was with child. And since jesus was born before the census was completed to the person who makes a careful examination it will appear that a kind of mystery is expressed in the fact that at the time when all people in the world presented themselves to be counted christ to should be counted by being registered with everyone. He could sanctify everyone inscribed with the whole world and the census. He offered to the world communion with.

"Council teaches the obedience of faith must be given to god as he reveals himself by this obedience of faith men freely commits himself entirely to god making the full submission of his intellect and will to god who reveals and willingly assenting to the revelation given by him this statement which touches the very essence of faith is perfectly applicable to joseph of nazareth therefore he became a unique guardian of the mystery hidden for in god as did mary in that decisive moment. Which saint paul calls the fullness of time when god sent forth his son born of woman to redeem those who were under the law so that we might receive adoption as sons in the words of the council it pleased god in his goodness and wisdom to reveal himself and to make known the mystery of his will his will was that men should have access to the father. Through christ the word made flesh in the holy spirit and become sharers in the divine nature together with mary. Joseph is the first guardian of this divine mystery together with mary and in relation to mary. He shares in this final phase of god's self revelation in christ and he does so from the very beginning looking at the gospel. Tanks of both matthew and luke one can also say that joseph is the first to share the faith of the mother of god and in doing so. He supports his spouse in the faith of divine annunciation. He is also the first to be placed by god on the path of mary's pilgrimage of faith it is a path along which especially at the time of calvary and pentecost. Mary will precede. In a perfect way. The path that was joseph's his pilgrimage of faith ended. I that is to say before.

"He is the one true christ. It was an expectation of this great messiah. The chosen people the jews or israelites or hebrews for these are different names for the same people looked out from age to age. He was to come to set all things right and next to this great question which occupied their minds mainly when was he to come was the question who was to be his mother. It had been told them from the first noth- that he should come from heaven but that he should be born of a woman. At the time of the fall of adam god had said that the seed of the woman should bruise the serpent's head who then was to be that woman thus significantly pointed out to the fallen race of adam at the end of many centuries it was further revealed to the jews that the great messiah or christ the seed of the woman should be born of their race and of one particular tribe of the twelve tribes into which that race was divided from that time. Every woman of that tribe hoped to have the great privilege of herself being the mother of the messiah or christ for its duration since he was so great the mother must be great and good and blessed to hence it was among other reasons that they thought so highly of the marriage state because not knowing the mystery of the miraculous conception of the christ when he was actually to come they thought that the marriage right was the ordinance necessary for his coming hence was if mary had been as other women she would have longed for marriage as opening on her the prospect of bearing the great king. The chain was to humble and too pure for such thoughts. She had been inspired to choose that better. Way of serving. God which had not been made known to the jews the state of virginity. She preferred to be his spouse to being his mother. Accordingly when the angel gabriel announced to her her high destiny shrank from it till she was assured that it would not oblige her to revoke her purpose of a virgin life devoted to her. God thus was it that she became the mother of the christ not in that way which pious women for so many ages had expected him but declining the grace of such maternity she gained it by means of a higher grace and this is the full meaning of saint elizabeth's words when the blessed virgin came to visit her which we use in the hail mary. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of the womb and therefore it is that in the devotion called the crown of twelve stars. We give praise to god the holy ghost through whom she was both virgin and mother. Mary is the mater salvatori. He's the mother of the savior here again. We must understand what is meant by calling lord savior saviour in order to understand why it is used to form one of the titles given to mary in her litany the special name by which our lord was known before his coming was as we found that of messiah or christ thus he was known to the jews but when he actually showed himself on earth he was known by three new titles the son of god the son of man and the saviour the first expressive of his divine nature the second of his human the third of his personal office thus the angel who appeared to mary called him the son of god the angel who appeared to joseph called him jesus which means in english savior and so the angels to cold him a savior when they appeared to the shepherds but he himself specially calls himself the son of man. Not angels only call him savior but those two greatest of the apostles saint peter and saint paul in their first preachings. Saint peter's says he is prince and a savior and saint. Paul says a savior jesus and both angels and apostles. Tell us why he is so called because he has rescued us from the power of the evil spirit and from the guilt and misery of our sins thus the angel says to joseph thou shalt call his name jesus for he shall save his people from their sins and saint peter god has exalted him to be prince and savior to give repentance to israel and remission of sins and he says himself the son of man has come to seek and to save that which is lost now. Let us consider how this affects our thoughts of mary to rescue slaves from the power of the enemy implies a conflict our lord because he was a savior was a war year. He could not deliver the captives without a fight nor without personal suffering. Now who are they who especially hate wars a heathen poet answers wars. He says or hated by mothers. Mothers are just those who especially suffer in war. They may glory in the honor gained by their children but still such glorying does not wipe out one particle of the long pain the anxiety the suspense the desolation and the anguish which the mother reversal feels so. It was with mary for thirty years. She was blessed with the continual presence of her son name she had him in subjection but the time came when that war called for him for which he had. Come upon earth certainly. He came not simply to be the son of mary but to be the savior of men and therefore at length. He parted from her. She knew then what it was to be. The mother of a soldier who left her side. She saw him no longer. She tried in vain to get near him. He had for years lived in her embrace. And after that at least in her dwelling but now in his own words the son of man has nowhere to lay his head and then when you had run out she heard of his arrest his mock trial and his passion at last she got near him when and where on the way to calvary and when he had been lifted upon the cross and length she held him again in her arms yes when he was dead crew he rose from the dead but still she did not thereby gain him for he ascended on high and she did not at once. Follow him no. She remained on earth many years in the care. Indeed of his dearest apostle saint john but what was even the holiest of men compared with her own son and him the son of god. Oh holy mary. Mother of our saviour in this meditation. We have now suddenly passed from the joyful mysteries to the sorrowful from gabriel's enunciation to the to the.

"Being deceived. Mary is the newel. Cheney the gate of heaven. mary is. Cool the gate of heaven because it was through her that our lord passed from heaven to earth. The prophet ezekiel prophesying of mary. Sands the gate shall be closed. It shall not be opened and no man shall pass through it. Since the lord god of israel has entered through it and it shall be closed for the prince. The prince himself shall sitting it now. This is fulfilled not only in our lord having taken flesh from her and being her son but moreover in that she had a place in the economy of redemption it is fulfilled in her spirit and will as well as in her body. Eve had a part in the fall of man though it was adam who was representative and who sinned made us sinners. It was eve who began and who tempted adam scripture says. The woman saw that the tree was good to eat and fair to the eyes and delightful to behold and she took of the fruit thereof and did eat and to her husband and he did eat. It was fitting. Then in god's mercy that as the woman began the destruction of the world so woman should also begin its recovery and that as eve opened the way for the fatal deed of the first atom so merry should open the way for the great achievement of the second adam even our lord jesus christ who came to save the world by dying on the cross for it hence. Mary is called by the holy father's a second and a better eve. As having taken that. I stabbed in the salvation of mankind which eve took in. Its ruin how and. When did mary take part. And the initial part in the world's restoration it was when the angel gabriel came to her to announce to her great dignity which was to be her portion saint. Paul bidzos present our bodies to god as a reasonable service. We must not only pray with our lips and fast and do outward pennants and be chased in our bodies but we must be obedient and pure in our minds and so as regards the blessed virgin. It was god's will that she should undertake willingly and with full understanding to be the mother of our lord and not to be a mere passive instrument whose maternity would have no merit and no reward. The higher our gifts the heavier. He's it was no light lot to be so intimately near to the redeemer of men as she experienced afterwards when she suffered with him therefore weighing well the angels words before giving her answer to them i she asked whether so great an office would be a forfeiture of that virginity which she had vowed when the angel told her no then with the full consent of a full heart. Fool of god's love to her and her own loneliness she said behold the handmade of the lord be done unto me. According to the word it was by this consent that she became the gate of heaven. Mary is the motto. Create aures the mother of the creator. This is a title which of all others wishing have fought it impossible for any creature to possess at foresight. We might be tempted to say that it throws into confusion our primary ideas of the creator and the creature the eternal and the temporal the self subsisting and the dependent and the ad on further consideration. We shall see that we cannot refuse. Tidal to marry without denying the divine incarnation. That is the greet and fundamental truth of revelation. That god became man and this was seen from the first age of the church. Christians were accustomed from the first to call the blessed virgin the mother of god because they saw that it was impossible to deny her that title without denying saint. John's words the word that is god. The son was made flesh and in no long time it was found necessary to proclaim this truth by the voice of an ecumenical council of the church for in consequence of the dislike have mystery the error sprang up that our lord was not really god but man differing from us in this merely that god dwelt in him as god dwells in all good men only in higher measure as the holy spirit dwelt in angels and prophets. As in a sort of temple or again as our lord now dwells in the tabernacle in church and then the bishops and faithful people found. There was no other way of hindering. This false bad video being taught but by declaring distinctly and making it a point of faith that mary was the mother not of men only but of god and since that time the title of mary as mother of god has become what is called a dogma or article of faith in the church but this leads us to a larger view of the subject. Is this title as given to mary. More wonderful than the doctrine that god without ceasing to be god should become men. Is it more mysterious. That mary should be mother of god than that. God should be man yet. The latter as i have said is the elementary truth of revelation witnessed by prophets evangelists and apostles all through scripture. And what can be more consoling and joyful than the wonderful promises which follow from this truth that mary is the mother of god. The great wonder namely that we become the brethren of our god that if we live well and die in the grace of god we shall all of us hereafter be taken up by our incarnate god to that place where angels dwell that our bodies shall be raised from the dust and be taken to heaven that we shall be really united to god that we shall be partake of the divine nature that each of us soul and body shall be plunged into the abyss of glory which surrounds the almighty that we shall see him and share his blessedness. According to the text who so ever shall do the will of my father that is in heaven. The same is my brother and sister and mother. Mary is the motto christine. The mother of christ each of the titles of mary has its own special meaning in drift and may be made the subject of a distinct meditation. She is invoked by us as the mother of christ. What is the force of thus addressing. Her it is to bring before us that she it is whom from the i was prophesied of and associated with the hopes and prayers of all holy men of old true worshippers of god of all who looked for the redemption of israel in every age before that redemption came. Our lord was called the christ or the messiah by the jewish prophets and the jewish people. The two words christ and messiah mean the same. They mean an english. The anointed in the old time there were three great ministries or offices by means of which god spoke to his chosen people the israelites or as they were afterward called the jews that of priest that of king and that of prophet those who were chosen by god for one or other of these offices were solemnly anointed with oil or oil signifying the grace of god which was given to them for the due performance of their high duties but our lord was all three a priest prophet and king a priest because he offered himself as a sacrifice for our sins a prophet because he revealed to us the holy law of god and king because he rules over us thus.

"The two archangels. Who have a special office in. The gospel are saint michael and saint gabriel and they. Both of them are associated in the history of the incarnation with mary. Saint gabriel when the holy ghost came down upon her and saint michel when the divine child was born. Saint-gabriel hailed her as full of grease and has blessed among women and announced to her that the holy ghost would come down upon her and she would bear a son who would be the son of the highest of saint michael's ministry to her on the birth of that divine son. We learn in the apocalypse written by the apostle saint john. We know our lord came to set up the kingdom of heaven among men and hardly was he born when he was assaulted by the powers of the world who wished to destroy him. Herod sought to take his life but he was defeated by saint joseph's carrying his mother and him off into egypt but seen john in the apocalypse tells us that michael and his angels were the real guardians of mother and child then and on other occasions. I saint. john saw envision a great sign in heaven meaning by heaven the church or kingdom of god a woman clothed with the sun and with the moon under her feet and on her head a crown of twelve stars and when she was about to be delivered of her child. There appeared a great red dragon. That is the evil spirit ready to devour her son when he should be born. The son was preserved by his own divine power but next the evil spirit persecuted for saint michel however and his angels came to the rescue and prevailed against him. There was a great battle. Says the sacred writer michael and his angels fought with the dragon and the dragon fought and his angels and that great dragon was cast out the old serpent who is called the devil now as then the blessed mother of god has hosts of angels. Who do her service. And she is their queen. Mary is the specula- mu st ti. The mirror of justice. Hugh i we must consider what is meant by justice for the word is used by. The church has not that sense which bears an ordinary english by justice is not meant the virtue of fairness equity uprightness in our dealings but it is a word denoting all virtues at once a perfect virtuous state of soul righteousness or moral perfection. So that it answers very nearly two what is meant by sanctity therefore when our lady is called the mirror of justice in his meant to say that she is the mirror of sanctity. Holiness supernatural goodness next. What is meant by calling her a mirror a mirror is a surface which reflects as stillwater polished steel or a looking glass. What did mary reflect. She reflected our lord but he is infinite sanctity she then as far as a creature could reflected his divine sanctity and therefore she is the mirror of sanctity or as litany says of justice. Do we ask how. She came to reflect his sanctity. It was by living with him. We see every day. How like people get to each other. Who live with those. They love when they live with those whom they don't love as for instance the members of family who quarrel with each other then the longer they live together the more unlike each other they become the when they love each other as husband and wife parents and children brothers with brothers or sisters friends with friends then in course of time they get surprisingly like each other all of us perceive this we are witnesses to it with our own eyes and ears in the expression of their features in their voice in their walk in their language even in their handwriting became like each other and so with regard to their minds as in their opinions though tastes their pursuits and again doubtless in the state of their souls which we do not see whether for good or for bad now. Consider that. Mary loved her divine son within unutterable love and considered to. She had him all to herself for thirty years. Do we not see that as she was full of grace before she conceived in her womb. She must have had a vast incomprehensible sanctity when she had lived close to god for thirty years. A sanctity of an angelic order reflecting. Back the attributes of god with the fullness and exactness of which no saint upon earth or hermit or holy virgin can even remind us cruelly. Then she is. The specula- did see the mirror of divine perfection. Merry is the set as soppy. Nci the seat of wisdom. Mary has this title in her litany. Because the son of god who is also called in scripture the word and wisdom of god once dwelt in her and then after his birth of her was carried in her arms and seated in her lab in his first years less being as it were the human thrown of him who reigns in heaven. She is called the seat of wisdom in the poet's weren't his throne thy bosom blessed mother under filed that thrown if ought beneath the skies. Besim the senlis child but the possession of her son lasted beyond his infancy. He was under her rule. As saint. luke tells us and lived with her in her house till he went forth to preach that is for at least a whole thirty years and this brings us to a reflection about her cognitive to that which was suggested to by the title of mirror of justice for if such close and continued intimacy with her son created in her sanctity inconceivably. Great must not also the knowledge which she gained during those many years from his conversation of present past and future have been so large and so profound and so diversified and so thorough that though she was a poor woman without human advantages she must in her knowledge of creation of the universe and of history have excelled the greatest of philosophers and in her theological knowledge the greatest of theologians and in her prophetic discernment the most favored of prophets. What was the grand theme of conversation between her and her son. But the nature the attributes the providence and the works of almighty god would not our lord be ever glorifying the father who sent him would he not unfold to her the solemn eat decrees and the purposes and will of god would he not from time to time in light in her in all those points of doctrine which have been i discussed and then settled in the church from the time of the apostles till now and all shall be till the end navies and far more than these all that is obscure all that is fragmentary in revelation would so far as the knowledge is possible to men be brought out to her in clearness and simplicity by him. Who is the light of the world and so of the events which are to come. God spoke to the prophets. We have his communications to them in scripture but he spoke to them configure and parable. There was one moses to whom he vouchsafed to speak face to face if there be among you a prophet of the lord. God says i will appear to him in a vision and i will speak to him in a dream but it is not so with my servant moses for i will speak to him mouth to.

"st john" Discussed on Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution!
"Like the socialization matt socialization. Yeah people say aren't you worried about socialization. I'm like thank you for asking me that question. I am so worried that i pulled my kids school. That's how that's how that's how word about socialization. That's why i took my kids out of school. So when people say salt might unlike. That's exactly why. I took my kids out of school. They're not ready to be sought my and when they are they can do whatever god's equipped him and called them to do and they'll be ready for maybe they will go back in the public school though they'll go as a teacher. They'll go as an administrator. They're not going to be there as a student. If i have anything to do with it. Yeah that's right. that's so awesome. So you've hit on the salt and light. We've talked a little bit about some of the kind of excuses that parents give as to why they can't and it really comes down. I believe to selfishness. Like the second part of the big house right and we've talked about his socialization. Okay so one that. I get a lot. is okay so this is all great and fine. Heidi i will. I will keep them home. And then when highschool comes. I really need them to be exposed to these things so that they can come back at the end of the day and we can talk through these things together because otherwise i'm just going to send him out to the world completely unprepared for the things that are going to face Someone actually said to me the other day. Like i want to know. I need to send my kids highschool. So they can be offered a beer so that then they can come home and we can talk about it like that. that's the mentality. How do you address this Let's homeschool him up until high school. And then let's send them so they can get a little exposure while they're still under the safety of my roof. Well i think there's two ways you can look at it. I mean there's a negative way in a positive way right so the the negative way would just be to say your kids are gonna be exposed to you know when you want experimenting with drugs to you're going to say really what mike is experiments dogs. I really hope my kid. Experiments was sex so the by the time he gets to marriage. Boy he gets. He really understands. You know i it's too again. That is a basic misunderstanding of the danger. That we're putting our kids in and it's you don't understand that their minds are still being formed. I want my kids to be so well prepared that they are going to be when they finally because they are going to get out onto the battlefield giving half. My kids are grown. I've got a daughter in her thirties. My kids are they range in age from thirty to ten. Wow i said that out loud thinking thirty two ten so most of my kids right now. Four of our seven are in their twenties there there in the world my son's working at costco. I've got another one that works for amazon. He's coming all the things that happened at amazon and the warehouse. I'll tell you what that's that's a college education right there. But i'm not worried about him because he's twenty years old. He's been trained in. Righteousness he knows right from wrong. You're this idea that your kids have to experience life in high school so they can experience life is so misguided and again it's misses the market doesn't understand the magnitude of the crisis that we're facing the other thing. I think you know people say well. I don't have the money okay. So if you didn't have the money let's say you're broke. Let's say you're broke. And a pandemic comes. Your school is just love to go back to the pandemic. We're all familiar with it now. Ray right pandemic schooner. Yeah i'd take you out. But i just can't afford to bring you home no you would go on bringing you home. Figure it out. I'll figure it out. I'll figure it out. I'm always john parents. Look your worst day of home schooling and you will have some bad ones. Your worst day of homeschool is going to be better than their best day in the public school kids. Your kids are going to be taught that their loved. they're going to be taught. They have a crater. they're going to be taught. They recruited on purpose with purpose. They're going to be taught the value of family One of the right out of the marxist playbook i mean we basically have marxism in our country right now which for people who aren't familiar. Everyone's familiar with socialism because we all know bernie sanders right. Marxism is violent socialism. That's all it really is. Marxism is socialism with a gun pointed at your head. That's what it is. And that is what we have on the streets of seattle. That is what we have in portland oregon right now. That is what we have all over. The nation and our kids are literally being trained into this sort of marxist this mark society algae which turns them against their parents right out of a marxist playbook is to a deteriorate the family whatever have been doing for the last hundred years in this country. We want our kids to learn about religion. We sent him to the youth pastor. We want our kids. Learn spelling in math and history. We sent him to the teacher. What are the parents doing except for going to work and making sure the kids have a roof over their head and making sure they get into soccer. It's ridiculous it's like the things that matter. The most they do value family the the The weeding hearts together inside the home. Which is the fabric of the society. Those things have been torn away not to such a point where children are more interested in their teachers opinion than they are in their parent's opinion and that has happened on the watch. Parents who have ceded the education of their children to every person under the sun at the first chance they got and now that we're seeing sound the alarm sound the alarm learn. It's all i mean. We're so far down the rabbit hole. Now that it's going to take a generation. That's why i said. I think these kids could be the reformers right now. These my generation your generation. These are the rescuers and may we might even you. Two generations of rescuers might mean that arcade that we rescue arcades and they continue the rescue process until reformation can happen but we are in a crisis. Now it's worse than the ronin. And i i you know i wish i could be nicer about it. But i'm out of nice words while we want. We want truth right now. You know as you were talking about the battle. That's going on for the hearts and minds of our kids in the school system in about them being salt and light. I was thinking of evasion. Six ten three twenty really is the whole chapter. But i just put up in in. Our family has worked to memorize through this whole section of scripture But versus twelve through twelve and thirteen say for we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against the rulers against the authorities against the cosmic powers over this present darkness against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. And that's exactly what's going on. And then verse. Thirteen is therefore take up the whole armor of god that you may be able to withstand in the evil day having done all to stand firm and that is the job that got his given us as parents is to help our kids. Learn how to take that armor of faith through the word of god through prayer through true train with a biblical foundation a biblical worldview. And we're not doing that. Many parents are in it. I'm so grateful for the parents who have taken that responsibility to train. Hard to minds of their kids but so many are not doing that. There are many reasons why we're gonna take a quick break and come back and talk about that just a minute learning to write well. In order to effectively communicate ideas can be a challenge for many students equipping teachers and teaching parents with methods and materials which will aid them in training their students to become confident and competent communicators and thinkers is key. The institute for excellence in writing is an organization dedicated to training mentoring and providing a model for teachers in a clear sequential and effective method of teaching writing that reinforces history science literature and content areas. Our methodology begins with dictated content. So rather than to child here. Think of something and learn to write. We actually give them. The content and through our nine units gradually win them from dictated content to that blank page through the process of learning to write. Well students learn how to think clearly and to express themselves eloquently and persuasively for more information or twitter. The program visit i e w dot com. Do you love books.

Why oftentimes parents don't take on that responsibility to train up. Their kids are to pull them out of public schools and there are many reasons it's scary. It's expensive. I think one of the reasons that we often see. In addition to the argument that our kids need to be sultan is that it's just straight up scary. We were not raised in a society where it was normal to have our kids out of school. You know all of us were raised in a traditional school whether private or secular no heidi to you and i grew up in private school abbey growth in a in a public school but it was normal and so when we had kids it was normal that you just put your kids in school and it is a scary thing to do so i. I wanted for the last half of of this episode. I want to give hope to the parent. Who just as i i want to. But i don't know how i don't know what to do. I don't have what it takes to get my kids out especially those who are. Maybe you're a single mom and you feel like you can't have to work to support your kids and maybe you're working two jobs to support your kids. Whatever the case may be. How can we bring encouragement to the mom and the dad who feels like we just. We don't have what it takes sweet. We can't do this school thing. I'm glad that you can do it. I'm glad you feel smart enough and organized enough and all the things that you need to be to home school. But i don't have that. How do you encourage parent. Why i think it's it's an. It's a misnomer to assume that everyone who home schools spills equipped. I think when you say. Oh you know. I can't tell you how many times i've been mistaken for a woman with extraordinary patients taking my kids like walmart. You know i mean i have seven children and so there are many years when i would go to the grocery store in the middle of the day and the checker would be like. Oh kids. who aren't you in school. Oh we home school the guy would just look at us like we had six heads or miller and then i saw that i would inevitably here. Oh could never do that. I don't. I don't have that kind of patience. And i i was. I think i told you that before. I just want to go on. Patients don't have the patience. I don't have that kind of patience. I don't have the kind of This extraordinary administrative skills. I didn't even think i'd be a good teacher. That's not what it's about. It's about recognizing that something needs to happen. And i'm the one to make it happen. You know and so it's it's a matter of personal responsibility you know. People have read becoming monster anger. Any of the books that i've written i. I explained there were months and months when our family was on food stamps that we did. We went down to one car. We did all of those scenes. So that i could stay home with our kids and so it was an extraordinary sacrifice. And it's interesting now because as our kids will sit around the dinner table when everybody's altogether which isn't very often anymore if you hear them talk about their growing up particularly savannah now. She's got three kids of around. When you hear my kids talk about their growing up. They never mentioned the things that i thought they would be stuck on forever I never hear them say. I remember when we didn't have heart lena. We didn't have much food or oliver clothes. Were hand me downs. Or you know you know. All of our furniture came from the salvation army. Which did i. we just loved it. We love garage selling. It was fine. I mean i was an adventure you know and so i think we have. This misunderstood the this wrong idea about what it takes to home homeschool. I always tell people you want to know what it takes to home school. It takes love. That's what it takes because love love. Mix sacrifice love says okay. I'm gonna i'm gonna. I'm gonna give this up so that this can happen. It is a sacrifice and so for us. Pretend like it isn't it's not it's it's dishonest at its root and so i was think too. I wish someone had told me years ago because we pulled our our oldest daughter out of school after two nephews of public school. I wish someone would have told me how much life there was waiting. Rest i i would have been less scared. I wish i wish someone would have said this is going to bring you so much joy. You will never regret this. We have never regretted not a single time and has have there been dazed. have been difficult absolutely. Did we have to work really hard. Yes we did. did we go without. Yes absolutely would. I do it again. Yes i would do it again. And i think people need to know how much joy there isn't it. You're gonna find that this will dry you closer to your children closer to the lord it absolutely will and you are going to have stories to tell your children of the miraculous way that god provided for you when you chose to obey him and put your children above any other pursuit that you had god will provide and he will. He will be the one that you look back at. I i mean. I'm certainly doing it now looking back and just saying thank you. Thank you thank you. the provision. God made for our family in times when there should have been no provisional an archetype miracle stories to tell him because we stepped out and said we trust you trust. You're gonna make away and you know what Here's here's how i know it's worth for sure. And all seven of our children are walking with the lord off. Do we agree on everything now but none of my kids are socialists. I think that again. None of my kids are socially. I have one of my favorite t shirt says. I'm just ordinary mom. Try not to raise communist right when you're when you're in portland. This is a. This is a job with our kids. The conversations we had around the dinner table the the The opportunity people want my kids to abby spina. What my kids to go to school so they experienced life. All you gotta do is go to walmart is agreements life. Just go there. You know this idea that somehow life happens outside of home is ally ness life. The life that god has free begins at home and begins there. The foundation is there. The relationships are born there. The trust in the faith and the goodness and the things that you want to cultivate your children it all starts there and either the parent because people are going to make excuses and we make excuse for all kinds of things. Like i can't lose weight because blah blah blah. I can't be pay my bills. Because oughta and i'm just like okay. I can actually do this thing. I can't homeschool seven children. And i literally can't keep houseplants alive event. I've told us when the rona started. I did the thing like i bought like seven hanging baskets and i was like. This is the year that i'm gonna find my green thumb. This is it. no every single one of them died. I tried everything. I took one back to the flower lady. I brought her my dad potted plant and i said listen your plants or committing suicide on my back porch and she ended up heavy. Because i've been giving it too much water so apparently had root root rot and that was the thing and she goes. Oh honey my plants are not killing themselves your murdering them but the reality is I don't care as much about my plans. I do about my kids now. If those plans for kids i would figure it out. As it was a bummer. I'm never doing that again. I'm getting silk plants from now on and that's what i'll do but if it mattered i would have figured it out. Mya and parents need to care about their kids enough to say i want your your adult life to be one that is rooted instability. And in the truth. So that when anything comes out you. I believe we're raiding a very special generation of children and it requires a very special generation of parents were willing to sacrifice for their kids parents who are willing to say. This is going to be hard. I'm gonna learn some new recipes. We're going to have we're going to do a lot more crock pot cooking. We're not gonna go out as much as we did. And besides it's the ronan can go at any anyway. This is a great time to experiment with your crock. Pot just figuring out the new things a new way of doing it. And i'm telling you i promise you god. As my witness there is joy joy is waiting and it is a real joy a lasting joy. And you you will be able to look at your kids and say. I literally did everything that i could and mean it and so I just think people can do it and once you start. You're going to be hooked. That's what happened to me. I went kicking and screaming into home. Schooling and Is the best thing we ever did for our kids. Yeah yep you have no regrets. And that's the thing is you know. I and i've heard you say this. Heidi it's how we feel too. I want my kids to get to adulthood with as few regrets as possible with having us few regrets as possible and raising them in with them having as few regrets as possible in the years that they grew up under my roof But all by the grace of god we can do this with the help of the lord. We cannot do this on our own. We need to strengthen us to give us wisdom. James says if we ask for wisdom he'll give it and he does and he's good and he's faithful. We're not doing this on our own. Think that that's where so many people fail and they think i can't do it. Yeah you're right. you can't do it neither. could i. Neither can cabbie neither can heidi. We cannot do this without the help. And strength and power and wisdom of the lord but he is a god who sees us and he hears us he knows our needs and he knows her kids and he's going to. He's going to give us everything we need to be able to accomplish. What he has called us to and and that call is on every single parent and it's it's not an individual call like while heidi was called homes go on yvette was called homeschooling abby wise. But i'm not no. We are all called a raise our children and righteousness and we cannot do that when we are putting them in an institution. That is teaching them everything. That's contrary to the word of god parents to understand to homeschooling doesn't mean you do everything by yourself right so home. Schooling does not mean. You teach algebra. You teach chemistry. You teach a you know a high school writing. It means that you know exactly. Who's teaching your child. And if you can't do you find someone you trust you. Can maybe you swap with another parent. I mean i did one year. Biology i ordered. I ordered like a cat kit or whatever. I don't ever do that again once with all it took and i was like get myself a tutor that we did we you know from then on. They did biology at the home school cop and it might have cut navy semi back fifty bucks. I'd paid one hundred and fifty bucks. But i'm telling you what you were. You figure it out. And so i wanted. I always feel like it'd be a good idea to like. Lift the burden of expectation off of parents. Who are looking at it thinking. I'm this this would make me my child. One hundred percent fulltime teacher. No it makes your child's one hundred percent fulltime parents yet as the parent. Then you say okay you need algebra this year. i'm gonna. i'm working to help you figure that out. And i heard stories of people you know. Having their neighbor come over and teach the kid algebra because he just loved it or whatever. I was used math analogies because math. What i'm always trying to get out of right. I think parents need to understand just because you home school. Kids doesn't mean you're teaching them every single subject every single day. He doesn't mean that they won't be socialized. It doesn't mean any of those things that's what the world wants you to think. That's what i thought before. I home school my kids before i realized. Oh my goodness this is so much different than how the world has framed it and then it more doable. Because all of a sudden you think oh i don't have to do you know. Abc or whatever it is and so. I think parents need to hear that. Yep yep the body of christ working together just as as to do his word and we're not saying like you said we're not saying you can't outsource right we're nice and you can't but we are saying is as a parent than you ensure that everything your kid learns is through a biblical worldview. So if you're going to help or science to your neighbor you ensure it's a biblical world. Or as i like to say it's truth teaching them truth. And we're also not saying that every home schooled kid is going to choose to walk with christ and that's why we also need to say home. School isn't but here's the. Here's the thing at the end of the day when i stand before. God i'm going to be able to say i did what you called me to do. My child made their own choice. I god did we. You called me to do. And that is to teach and train up my child in your truth and i think one of the the number one things we can say when people go kicking and screaming. And i don't want to when we can't afford and this and that line your heart up with god's when you lie in your heart up with god's you're going to have a drive. I believe to want to raise your kids in truth. Because that is god's heart and requirement for us as parents so no. It's not easy it you're listening to three homeschool moms centenary here and not one of said it's easy but it's worth it. Every one of us is that it is worth it. It is worth it. It absolutely is so we're out of time. Heidi you're such a blessing. Thank you so much for all that you do. Where can people learn more about you. Tell us about your podcast and your ministry and what you have going on. Yes so i. It's hard to like encapsulating a little card. So so i run an organization called moms strong international and i think we're coming up on eighteen thousand people there now just studying god's word and i we released bible studies every single month which is a component called kids strong so that moms can teach their children what they're learning so i have just this. This burning desire to see parents pass on the truth to the next generation. So that's at mom's talking to national the heidi saint john podcast airs five days a week. Now i'm and so that has just exploded which is really fun. We run the home. School resource center. Which is where i'm at. I'm in the portland venture hoover metropolitan area last year. We had two hundred and fifteen families event. You would not recognize it this year. We have seven hundred and twenty seven. Fat is an absolute work. If god it's it's amazing. This is part of the nonprofit. The i founded twenty years ago. Call firmly planted family and The first week in january actually anybody. Who's interested in starting homeschool resource center in their area. We are opening the home school resource center up for that weekend. People find in from all over the country so that they can see what we're doing and we're gonna see about getting these planted in If honestly if these were in major areas across the united states. I think we would see the rate of people pulling their kids. Out of school skyrocket. Because this is like you know this is kind of like one. Stop shopping for home schooling. So all those things. I don't know what else i do. I write books coming on strong. We we will link to all of your books in the show. Notes and willing to the podcast. If you guys. Don't listen tidies podcast. You must is the one podcast that i listen to more than any other every years. You get your encouragement. The word wisdom yup linked to her podcast as well What are the dates of the training. That you're doing or the information that you're doing.

you guys doing we're doing great that you're just hanging enraging doing all the things that you do getting ready for home schooling we are producing a movie yes I love it okay so for we have a lot of new listeners of the podcast since you were here last and by way of introduction you guys have quite an interesting story to tell you sold your home what in two thousand sixteen Yes yes and then you travelled out to the east coast guess and then you sold your your trailer and then you travel out to the West because he me interesting interesting right so what's going on why why would you do that well in two thousand six eighteen we felt like the Lord had put it on our hearts to film this documentary on home schooling and at the same time sell our house and most of our possessions slowed up in an RV and travel across the tree to film this documentary on home schooling and so so we did and we've been on the road for a few years now and it's been a really exciting thing just to see how God's hand has moved miraculously ways and the name of the documentary is schoolhouse rock you guys are talking about really a revolution happening around the country partic- really where education is concerned and people talk to me all the time of course I'm out on the road speaking to home schoolers but also to people who are thinking that home school thing you know I see is happening in the schools but I'm not really sure if I can do it at home are using this sort of the same thing happening like people are pulling their kids out of school yes yes all over the place we have been now I think to somewhere around thirty four states and we have met home school families along the way and most of those states and across the board is pretty much the same thing MOMS you're not feel like they are capable or equipped to home school their kids but it's it's been the most exciting thing because we get to talk to moms like yourself who have been there and who have grudges waited kids and who has come alongside of US moms and say you can do this you know if if God's calling you to it he's going to have you with everything you need to be able to accomplish it and that is not keep house plants alive and seven kids than anyone can do it yes anyone can do it I think sometimes we over think it do you think I think so yes well because it seems Gary because you look at what the school system is like on the outside and we feel like we need to bring that into our homes replicate it and it's impossible to do that and so when we can't replicate at that we feel like we're failing somehow yeah which is not the case of course no and I think it the revolution that you guys are highlighting in school house rock is this is the revolutionary idea the schools are actually doing it wrong right and when parents can come home and actually foster love of learning in their kids amazing things happen it kids are natural born learners they come into the world ready to learn and we've said through no child left behind and the ridiculous thing known as common core rate that our kids are all the same and so what works for my kid is going to work for you guys have two kids are the same not at all no that's a shocking that's a shocking fact you never talked to parents who say oh my kid is exactly like this all into the same box and it's impossible yeah to do that and so they end up either being left behind or being bored out of their minds and it's it's detriment until two kids and you talk about it being a revolution the interesting thing is it is revolution today but it's only been in the last one hundred sixty years or so that's right we've put our into these institutions called school right and but for years and years parents home schooled their kids taught their kids at home yeah and and and no made fun of him for it right socially awkward I love my friend Sam Sorbo and I were talking about this not too long ago and she was saying I say this many has I think it's just so powerful when did we start to buy the lie that the minute your kid turns five school district comes in and says Oh thank you good job and we can take it from here you bring your thank you for teaching and brush their teeth and you know thank you for getting them potty trained and in some cases even wait that long right before we take him to the school and the school is supposed to do what we can't do and I think the net result of that has been it's made parents feel Sort of inept right yes we just feel like well we what do we gotta give him to somebody else right right and the thing is it's not even about the academics you know we talk a lot about this and we've talked a lot about this in the movie is that home schooling is is important that academics are important because that's what points are children towards Christ but it's it's not parenting about academics it's about disabling training the hearts of our children and home schooling allows you to do that because when you're putting them in a classroom with someone else to train them for thirty five or forty.
