The Catholic Culture Podcast: Episode 4: The Marian Option

May 22, 2018

There is an easy, short, perfect and sure way to save our
failing Western civilization that is often overlooked in the
endless slew of books and articles penned by Catholic
intellectuals: Turn to Mary. Carrie Gress’s book The Marian
Option: God’s Solution to a Civilization in Crisis
reminds us
that in crisis after overwhelming civilizational crisis, Mary has
saved the day when her children had the humility and simplicity to
beg her for help. Our age is no different.

In this episode, Carrie and I discuss The Marian
as well as her latest book, Marian Consecration
for Children
the importance of women in the church, and the
pernicious attempts by “Catholic feminists” to remake Mary in the
image of Beyonce.

Come, Holy Spirit! Mary, Mother of the Church, pray for us!
