Fr. John Wauck Did a Podcast About the DV Code

Here's the link.

In it, Father comments on:
  • the Annunciation (includes the Gospel Reading from 03/25/06, Luke 1:26-38).
  • What is it that makes the DV code compelling and popular with millions of people around the world.
  • A person who reads this novel and treats it as "Fact" is making a huge error.
  • Where we should start when evaluating the inaccuracies contained in the DV Code.
  • The Gnostic Gospels. (The best "cure" for thinking the Gnostic Gospels have validity is read them!)
  • The Council of Nicea: Who called it, why it was called, what was its purpose.
  • There is no coherent theological system contain among the Gnostic Gospels.
  • Why it is important for Catholics to believe that Jesus wasn't married.
  • The role of women in the Catholic tradition is greater than that of any other religion that we know of.
  • The "missing Mary" of the DV Code is not Mary Magdalene, it is the Blessed Virgin Mary.
  • The definition of monk as a one who lives in a monastery
  • The canonical status of Opus Dei as a personal prelature (not a sect or an order)
  • The Priory of Sion was actually fabricated by a French fraud from the 1950's
  • Dan Brown's gigantic exaggeration and narrow interpretation of the practice of corporal mortification
  • Opus Dei is not a secretive organization
  • The mission of Opus Dei is to promote holiness among lay Catholics, that every baptized person is called to be a saint and an apostle, to convert the "prose of everyday life into heroic verse"
