In this episode, Father Philip Eldracher and Peter Eldracher discuss the First Commandment of the Church in which we are "commanded, in the first place, to keep holy the Sundays and the Holydays which the Church has instituted in honor of our Lord and of His Saints, by resting from servile work."
A Complete Catechism of the Catholic Religion by Father Joseph Deharbe, S.J. was originally written in German, was very popular in the 19th century, and was translated into English. Bishop Donald Sanborn finds the Deharbe Catechism to be the most complete to convert and instruct people in the Catholic Faith.
Father Eldracher is currently pastor of Mary Help of Christians chapel in Melbourne, Australia - and provides the Traditional (Tridentine) Latin Mass to faithful Catholics throughout Australia.
