Where does the Nicene Creed come from? The Council of Nicea! This week, our Stillwater based priests discuss the history and importance of Church councils. Over the centuries there have been a bunch. What are they and what are they important? Tune in and find out.

The Nicene Creed

I believe in one God,
the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,

and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
and became man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
he suffered death and was buried,  
and rose again on the third day
in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead
and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.

With the forthcoming opening (October 20, 2019) of the St. Joseph Priest Residence (aka the rectory), wherein all the priests of Stillwater where live, Father Kerry and Father O'Brien speak about this new building, its importance to the life of the parishes of Stillwater and to the priests themselves.  

Inspired by Luke 16 (The Rich Man and Lazarus), Father O'Brien and Father Kerry teach on how we can best serve those in need right in our midst. 

Do Catholics have to get married in a church? In a Catholic church?  The Pastors of Payne (County) dive in to the question many young people are asking as they prepare for marriage.

With the arrival of the new St. Teresa of Calcutta statue at St. Francis Xavier, our Stillwater priests jump into to the old arguments about Catholics and our use of images in our churches and homes. Do Catholics worship graven images? Listen and find out (hint: NO!).

Father O'Brien and Father Kerry are talking about the Eucharist again! Having looked at the Old and New Testaments and the Early Church, they offer practical advice on increasing your devotion to the Blessed Sacrament. 

Father O'Brien and Father Kerry continue their series on the Eucharist in the life of the Church. They explore New Testament passage about the Eucharist and dive into the early Church fathers and what they had to say about this great Sacrament.

After a recent Pew Research survey noted that many Catholics don't believe or don't know what the Church teaches about the Eucharist, Fr. O'Brien and Fr. Kerry break down the survey and give listeners the basics on what we know to be true about The Eucharist.
