Thomas glad to be here. And i've got michelina host of way of the fathers with mike. Aquilina eight. Thanks for having me tom. So i think the appropriate to just give some personal details about how we got here doing the work that we're doing and mike you're of course guest quite early on in the catholic culture podcast. I think it was like episode. Eleven or twelve or thirteen. Something like that. We talked about your career bit there and will recover some of that. Same ground again here in brief reform. But since since we've already talked about your career about. I think i'll start with james and then we'll ask you a bit later. I'm going to delete all of this and again feel free to both of you have projects that sort of converge at some points dealing both with with the church fathers to a large extent. So it'll be sort of interesting to see if what kind of conversation emerges about that coming at it from two different angles james. So your project is catholic. Culture audiobooks and that is for people who don't know it's a series of free very well produced audio books that we have in podcasts worm and on the catholic culture dot org website of classic works of catholic literature mostly focusing on the church. Father has well as to a certain degree on the writings of saint john. Henry newman so you have kind of a unique avenue in approaching this with training and a couple of different areas. So could you please give us some of your background and a little bit of your life story. That sort of leads you to be equipped to do this kind of project sure. Yeah well thomas. Our friendship goes way back. You and i went to high school together and have been friends. Ever since and i. i went to school for philosophy. That was my my main interest before dropping out to be a rockstar. I was playing in a band at the time. And i thought i want to pursue an artistic route while is often want to happen with bands. The band broke up not long after that and i was left in a vacuum and so i auditioned for my very first shakespeare play and at the time i was kind of bewildered. I didn't think i would get cast in this community production of macbeth but the rest was history after doing that performance on it was a very small role i continued doing shakespeare in particular but other classical works became quite enamored with performance. It was really in the context of doing theater. That i discovered what i thought was a call to the priesthood. It i think you know there's something about saying words that are not your own as a prophet does or the performance of ritual and the sacrifice of a priest. I was finding these things in the theater. World and my heart was so enlivened that i felt well. I have to take seriously the possibility that god might be calling me to be a priest so this is probably where my main credentials come in are beginning to come in is that i went to seminary for three years completed my college education there got my philosophy degree while also was exposed to the primary subject of this audio book series. The church fathers. I never read the fathers before..

"But i'm just so used to the craziness at this point that i skipped past the disappointment stayed in went straight to appear aesthetic appreciation of that. Perfect turn he made from the sensible into the absurd. And that's something that i really appreciate. The timing of it was was amazing. There's so much crazy stuff going on where i live that. You really just have to learn to enjoy it. This next clip is from episode. Thirty six bridges to hell or heaven toxic femininity and the spirit of anti mary. And in this kerry grant and i talk about how men can help the angry feminists in their life including Of course correcting them in the most effective manner at one point in this clip. I tell a little story about a friend of mine and The woman who ended up becoming his wife and you may be interested to know that. That's actually about catholic cultures on james mayevsky who hosts the podcasts catholic culture audio books and co hosts criteria the catholic film podcast with me and actually korea has his wife. You can hear her voice occasionally on catholic culture audiobooks as well. It's incredibly tragic. Because you know it's back to that adage the people that need the most love are the hardest to love because these women make themselves incredibly difficult to allow because their behavior so largely I think that's a great point in. I think seeing that also is a helpful way to approach women who are struggling with this because we know that they're unhappy in obviously you. We can't break through to. All of them somehow helps us rather than being irritated with on helps us understand their broken hill and approached them in a way with compassion instead totaling rotation so Yeah that's a good question. I'm sure this will come later when we talk more directly about mary. But how can how can men well okay. So a friend of mine referred to these women as he said something like. Nobody likes being around. A disagreeable woman is the word. You wanna be with an agreeable woman. You don't wanna be the disagreeable woman. How how can men help the disagreeable women in their lives. It's a very sensitive thing you know. It almost seems self defeating in a way to lecture. Someone who's who's already predisposed to to reject everything you say because you're a man. It's a very delicate thing. And i and. I honestly have no idea. Obviously women need to to sort of police each other more and in a way but but at the same time it is the role of men too to stand up for truth and be strong and to sort of lay down the law to a certain extent so it can be you know what i'm getting at but it's sort of puzzling situation to be in on on the ground level in terms of social interactions. No i think it's incredibly challenging again. Because of this reason that women largely are following the advice of of other women and That was one of the fun parts about writing. This book was even just looking at a throughout history. What is it men law about women while it's not anger and bitterness. It's not you know self-absorption narcissism these are not the traits that we hear love songs that the words of love songs are not conveying. These ideas conveying. They're conveying kind of woman. James taylor has these great lyrics. He obviously would probably consider himself a feminist and yet he described so beautifully. What is it that women love about..

"james mayevsky" Discussed on Catholic Culture Audiobooks

"With all that said have a blessed holy week and a happy easter the mental sufferings of our lord in his passion read by me james mayevsky written by saint. John henry newman every passage in the history of our lord and savior is of unfathomable depth and affords inexhaustible matter of contemplation on that concerns. Him is infinite and what we i discern his but the surface of that which begins and ends in eternity. It would be presumptuous for any one short of saints and doctors to attempt to comment on his words and deeds except in the way of meditation but meditation and mental prayer are so much duty and all who wished to cherish true faith and love towards him that it may be allowed us my brethren under the guidance of holy men who have gone before us to dwell and enlarge upon what otherwise would more fiddly be adored than scrutinized and certain times of the year this especially call upon us to consider as closely and minutely as we can even the more sacred portions of the gospel history. I would rather be thought feeble or officious in my treatment of them than wanting to the season and so i now proceed because the religious usage of the church requires it and though any individual preacher may well shrink from it to direct your thoughts to a subject especially suitable now and about which many of us perhaps think very little the suffering is with lord endured in his innocent and senlis soul you know my brethren that our lord and savior though he was god was also perfect man and hence he had not only a body but a sole likewise such as ours though pure from all stain he did not take body without a soul. God forbid for that would not have been to become man. How would he have sanctified our nature by taking a nature which was not hours. Man without a soul is on a level with the beasts of the field but our lord came to save a race capable of praising obeying him possessed of immortality. The lead immortality had lost. Its promised blessedness man was created in the image of god and that image is in his soul when then his maker by an unspeakable condescension came in his nature. He took on himself a soul in order to take on him a body he took on him a soul as the means of his union with the body he took on him in the first place. The soul then the body of man both at once. But in this order the soul and the body he himself created the soul which he took on himself while he took his body from the flesh of the blessed virgin his mother thus he became perfect man with body and soul and as he took on him a body of flesh and nerves which admitted of wounds and death and was capable of suffering. So did he take sole to which was susceptible of that suffering and moreover was susceptible of the pain and sorrow with proper to a human soul. And as his atoning passion was undergone in the body. So it was undergone in the soul also as the solemn days proceed we shall be especially called on my brethren to consider his sufferings in the body his seizure his forced journeyings to and fro his blows and wounds his scourging. The crown of thorns the nails the cross. They are all summed up in the crucifix itself as it meets our is they are represented all at once on his sacred flesh as it hangs up before us and meditation is made easy by the spectacle it is otherwise with the sufferings of his soul. They cannot be painted for us nor can they even be duly investigated they are beyond both sense and thought and yet they anticipated his bodily sufferings. The agony a pain of the soul not of the body was the first act of his tremendous sacrifice. My soul is sorrowful even unto death. He said nay if he suffered in the body it really was in the soul for the body did but convey the infliction onto that which was the true recipient and seat of the suffering. This it is very much to the purpose to insist upon. I say it was not the body that suffered but the soul in the body it was the sole and not the body which was the seat of the suffering of the eternal word consider then there is no real pain though there may be apparent suffering when there is no kind of inward sensibility or spirit to be the seat of it. A tree for instance has life organs growth and decay. It may be wounded and injured it droops and is killed but it does not suffer because it has no mind or sensible principle within it but wherever this gift of an immaterial principle is found. Their pain is possible and greater pain. According to the quality of the gift how do we know spirit of any kind. We should feel as little as three fields. had we know soul. We should not feel pain. More acutely than a brute feels it but being men we feel pain in a way in which none but those who have souls can feel it living beings i say feel more or less according to the spirit which is in them brutes far less than men because they cannot reflect on what they feel they have no advertently or direct consciousness of their sufferings. This it is that makes pain so trying namely that we cannot help thinking of it while we suffer it. It is before us. It possesses the mind. It keeps our thoughts fixed upon it. Whatever draws the mind off the thought of it lessens it hence friends amuse us when we are in pain for amusement is a diversion. If the pain is slight they sometimes succeed with us and then we are so to say without pain even while we suffer and hence it continually happens that in violent exercise or labor men meet with blows or cuts so considerable and so durable in their effect as to bear witness to the suffering which must have attended their infliction of which nevertheless they recollect nothing and quarrels and in battles wounds are received which from the excitement of the moment abroad home to the consciousness of the combatant. Not by the pain. At the time of receiving them but by the loss of blood that follows i will show you presently my brethren how i mean to apply what i have said to the consideration of our lord sufferings i i will make another remark consider then that hardly any one. Stroke of pain is intolerable. It is intolerable when it continues you cry out perhaps that you cannot bear more patients feel as if they stop the surgeons hand simply because he continues to pain them. They're feeling is that they have worn as much as they can. Bear as if the continuance and not the intensiveness was what made it too much for them. What does this mean. But the memory of the foregoing moments of acts upon and as it were edges the pain that succeeds if the third or fourth or twentieth moment of pain could be taken by itself. If the succession of the moments that preceded it could be forgotten it would be no more than the first moment as bearable as the first taking away the shock which.

"Welcome to Catholic Culture audiobooks production action of Catholic Culture Dot Org and under the patronage of Saint John. Henry Newman my name. Is James Mayevsky Today's reading the so-called second letter of Saint Clement The second letter of Saint Clement is in fact neither letter nor by Saint Clement. It is instead a homily and not just any homily but the oldest example of Christian preaching that we have outside of scripture itself though its precise origin and author remain unknown. It has historically been termed the second letter of Saint Clement due to its appearance alongside Saint Clemens letter to the Corinthians in many early manuscripts highlights include the unambiguous affirmation of Christ's divinity right at the outset emphasis upon the resurrection of the body. And some moving words on penance. That Lichen God's work on us to that of a Potter's there are also numerous scriptural references strung throughout including interestingly a couple of unknown quotations. That likely came from one or more. Apocryphal Gospels all. In all though we may not be able to attribute this text to any particular figure among the early fathers. I think you'll find it's no less edifying. And perhaps all the more intriguing for it The transition comes courtesy of the exhaustive fathers of the Church series put out by Catholic University of America press an alternate translation.
