Pints With Aquinas

If you could sit down with St. Thomas Aquinas over a pint of beer and ask him any one question, what would it be? Every episode of Pints With Aquinas revolves around a question, a question that St. Thomas addresses in his most famous work, The Summa Theologica. So get your geek on, pull up a bar stool, and grab a cold one. Here we go!

This week’s episode of “Pints with Aquinas” is all about demons. I talk with Fr. Vincent Lampert about what it is like being an exorcist and how he became one.

We also discuss:

 - The difference between demonic influence and mental health
 - The process an exorcist must go through to determine if a person is suffering from demonic influence
 - Fr. Lampert’s many experiences during exorcisms
 - The different types of demonic activity and how to identify them.

In this episode, I chat with Fr. Vincent Yeager, a Franciscan priest, and vocations director, about how to find your vocation. We share tips and examples from our own journeys — his as a priest and mine as a married man — and we discuss:

 - Whether you can choose the wrong vocation
 - How to recognize signs from God
 - Small “v” vocations and big “V” vocations
 - What to do when you’re attracted to two different vocations
 - Five keys to discernment you need to know

If you’ve been wondering about your vocation in life (or know someone who is), this is the episode for you!

Pull up a barstool with me and relax. I mean it! We need to relax.

This week’s episode of “Pints with Aquinas” is all about overwork, why technology makes us more stressed, and how to find true rest and leisure. We’re going to look at a pretty hard-hitting argument from Aquinas for why we need to be joyful and get some pleasure in our lives. We’ll also talk about:

 - What is true rest for the soul (the answer may surprise you)
 - The difference between true leisure and distraction
 - The sin of not playing (yes, this is for real)
 - Some practical tips for detaching yourself from technology

In this episode, Christopher West of the Theology of the Body Institute comes on the show to chat about Pope St. John Paul II's "Theology of the Body," and a whole lot more — from Descartes to coffee addictions.

We sit back and let the conversation flow about all kinds of things, including:

  • How a philosopher who died over 350 years ago is affecting how we think about sex and our bodies
  • The real meanings of hot-button words (do you know where the word “gender” comes from?)
  • Why you need to open up your messy life to God and what happens if you don’t
  • Where to find the marriage imagery in the Bible
  • Where the Church is headed and how to live with hope in a post-Christian world
