The Pope They Called a Heretic (Honorius I) - Infallibility Series, Pt. 3

May 12, 2018

Wait, a pope was actually condemned as a heretic by an ecumenical council of the Church? Sounds like the jig is up – papal infallibility is a false doctrine! Right? Well...we shall see.

The Pope Who Was Once an Antipope (Vigilius) - Infallibility Series, Pt. 2

April 20, 2018

This week's pope was one of the only guys to have been an anti-pope before getting legitimately elected, he pretty much killed his predecessor, and was a bit of a wuss to boot. Yes, even the Bishop of Rome can be a weak-willed flip-flopper, and it followed him around during all 18 years in office.

The First Pope to Not Be a Saint (Liberius) - Infallibility Series, Pt. 1

March 22, 2018

How would you like to be the first pope to not be named a saint? First in 350 years and the only non-saint pope in 5 centuries was still pretty holy, but people thought he might be heretic. Also, people use him as an argument against papal infallibility.

The Prophetic Pope (Bl. Paul VI)

March 8, 2018

Paul VI was nothing short of a prophet. He called out society’s future ills decades before they actually happened, and reigned as pope through the assassination of an American President, the sexual revolution, and a sweeping reform in the Church. Plus … drumroll … he’s about to be made a saint.

The Pope Who Confirmed the Canon of Scripture (St. Damasus I)

February 23, 2018

Ever wonder where the official list of the books of the Bible came from? Well, this guy you’re about to learn about is who we have to thank. Every single one of those 73 books you find in Catholic Bibles was listed out by this guy, at a meeting in Rome, 16 centuries ago.

The Pope Who Battled Attila the Hun (St. Leo the Great)

January 31, 2018

This week we’ve got a pope who was here to chew bubblegum and battle heresy … and he was fresh out of bubblegum. He also once convinced Attila the Hun to hightail it out of Rome. In short, he’s one of the greats. Literally.
