This week Bishop and Vicars take a look at the Crusades. Often the Crusades are seen as a war of imperialism, but historical research shows us otherwise. Bishop and the Vicars discuss why the crusades were called, why people went on a crusade and why it matters to us in the 21st century.

This week on the Bishop and Vicars, the idea of virtue and men's spirituality is on the table. From calls for a "new knighthood of holy virtue" at the recent Pheonix, Arizona men's conference, to the rise in popularity of Jordan Peterson the question of what it means to be a man in the 21st century is a pressing topic. Bishop and the Vicars take up the idea of how, as Catholic Christian men, we could and should pursue a life of Christian virtue and holiness.

This episode Bishop Daly welcomes back to the show local author Marja Henderson. Marja has recently published a book entitled Long Shall You Live

 "Long Shall You Live is a memoir following the lives of a young couple, Mienus and Suze, during the Nazi occupation of Holland during WWII. It traces Mienus’ involvement in the Dutch resistance in Vlaardingen and Rotterdam as a young patriot, and his subsequent struggle to survive the horrors of Buchenwald concentration camp. This story shares the love and the faith of these first-generation survivors following their liberation, and the challenges they faced immigrating to the United States. The book continues with the personal story of the author’s life as a second-generation survivor, and the fulfillment of the commitment she made to her parents “never to forget and never let it happen again.'"

Long Shall you Live is also available on Amazon.

This week on the Bishop and Vicars, the idea of human dignity is our topic of discussion. In our society today our understanding of anthropology has been increasingly unmoored from objective standards. The human person is whatever he or she wants to be. As Father Connall pointed out in our last episode the quote from Supreme Court's 1993 decision in Planned Parenthood vs. Casey "At the heart of liberty is the right to define one's own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life," is a sort of modern "non serviam." The defiant cry of Satan to God, "I will not serve." Opposed to this relativistic understanding of the human person is the Catholic concept of human dignity. In light of so many school shootings and the increasing division in our own society we need the revolutionary understanding of the human person that is brought to light by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Its a contest of Hallmark vs the Church this Ash Wednesday, as Valentine's Day falls on Ash Wednesday. As the Bishop and the Vicars note Ash Wednesday is in many ways a celebration of love and forgiveness. We can turn towards one another and offer both contrition and forgiveness in this Lenten season. While we must abstain from meat and fast this February 14th; Ash Wednesday and the love we celebrate on Valentines are not opposed. Ash Wednesday and Lent invites us to go deeper into the meaning of love; to the eternal Love of God, and to the Ressurection of Christ at Easter.
