Questions Covered:

  • 01:57 – What’s Jimmy’s favorite meal to eat on a Friday during Lent?
  • 03:35 – Do I get to keep my tattoos after the Last Judgement?
  • 07:00 – Apart from Jesus’ Passion, would Jesus ever have gotten sick or hurt, or would Psalm 91, which Satan quotes, apply and he would be protected? Would He have allowed Himself, Mary or an Apostle to become sick or hurt?
  • 11:32 – Does the Emily Blunt character in the Tom Cruise movie “Edge of Tomorrow” commit murder every time she kills his character to restart the day?
  • 17:25 – What should we make of the up and coming problem of human composting of bodies vs. Catholic burial? It is being implemented in Seattle and already approved by law there.

  • 22:41 – What do you think the spiritual state of a Time Lord is?
  • 24:24 – Given that Divine Revelation has provided us knowledge of invisible beings called angels and demons, and given that the fall of Adam is what threw the entire universe into discord, and given that all rational creatures are necessarily disposed to worship of God through the Incarnation of Christ, what possible room could there be for the existence of an unknown, unreached race of intelligent beings on other planets not accounted for by Revelation?
  • 30:37 – In what sense could it be said that unicorns (or dragons or trolls or Captain Picard) exist?

  • 39:50 – If Raiders of the Lost Ark was written to have Indy and his girlfriend open the Ark instead of the Germans would they have died in the same way the Germans did or no since they didn’t have any evil intentions with the Ark itself?
  • 41:47 – I would love to hear a layman’s explanation of the immutability of God—how God is unchanging and exactly what that means for a personal God who watches over us changeable beings.
  • 43:38 – What happens when you have two popes and, God forbid, the second one dies first?
