Why the Cross? Episode 1: Frenetic Intemperance

Restoration Radio listeners over the years may have been used to hearing Fr. Trauner and Stephen discuss history and doctrine, but this season they will have a chance to hear them discuss spiritual matters using the text Why the Cross? by Fr. Edward Leen, C.S.Sp.


Christ Carrying the Cross

Christ Carrying the Cross by Titian

The approach in each episode will be to share a few quotes from the text on a specific theme and have Father develop the ideas a bit further.

The series is no substitute for actually reading the book, and we hope that these episodes may whet the appetite of our listeners for the material, which they can find in our bookstore.

In this episode Father covers:

  • The frenetic intemperance with which modern man lives his life
  • The desire of modern man to “add a cubit to his stature”
  • The inability of modern man to be still and know that God is God

    I’m loving this book. Especially impressive in chapter 1 is the reference given to Aristotle. Difficult to stay tuned listening to Father; he’s soft spoken.
