Friday, September 25, 2020 – Over the next five days I will be doing our standard captain’s log round-ups of previous super basic primers because why not have everything in one handy place, right!?

Day 192 – Mrs. Flusche’s Super Basic Primer on the Three Pillars of the Church’s Authority (Part IV)

Thursday, September 24, 2020 – Okie dokie campers! Today is the last of the THREE PILLARS OF THE CHURCH’S AUTHORITY: THE MAGISTERIUM, which is probably the most difficult of the three pillars to grasp. A lot of people confuse this pillar of the Church’s authority to mean anything that bubbles out of the mouth of Read More

Day 191 – Mrs. Flusche’s Super Basic Primer on the Three Pillars of the Church’s Authority (Part III)

Wednesday, September 23, 2020 – Yesterday I regaled you with an extremely short history of the protestant reformation and Sacred Scripture.

Day 190 – Mrs. Flusche’s Super Basic Primer on the Three Pillars of the Church’s Authority (Part II)

Tuesday, September 22, 2020 – Normally, we would discuss today’s topic (SACRED SCRIPTURE) and tomorrow’s topic (SACRED TRADITION) as part of the THREE PILLARS OF THE CHURCH’S AUTHORITY together because they make up the “deposit of faith.” Also, that is how the Catechism deals with them. However, I want to look at each separately because Read More

Day 187 – Mrs. Flusche’s Super Basic Primer on Types of Prayer (Part XI)

Saturday, September 19, 2020 – Yesterday we walked though going to Confession and showed how it goes through each of the expressions and forms of prayer. Today we want to do that for the Mass. Now, the Mass has a lot more “stuff” to it, so I will be pulling out examples rather than a Read More

Day 186 – Mrs. Flusche’s Super Basic Primer on Types of Prayer (Part X)

Friday, September 18, 2020 – Over the next two days I am going to cover specific “times of prayer,” for lack of a better phrase. Basically, I want to take two very important “things” we do as Catholics—going to Confession and going to Mass—and talk about how the expressions of prayer and the forms of Read More

Day 185 – Mrs. Flusche’s Super Basic Primer on Types of Prayer (Part IX)

Thursday, September 17, 2020 – For our last FORM OF PRAYER, we will be talking about PRAISE.
