Chapters & Verses? Mass Before Trent? Ordinary Marriages & Sainthood?

BY Jimmy Akin

| Posted 1/28/12 at 9:38 PM

 

We all know about citing the Bible with chapter & verse—but where did the chapter and verse divisions come from in the first place and why are they there? Who added them, and when?

We all know about the ordinary form of Mass that arose after Vatican II and the extraordinary form that arose after the Council of Trent—but what was the Mass like before Trent? Why did they feel it needed to be changed? And why can’t we celebrate the Mass in its pre-Trent form today?

We all know that there were saints who were married, but none of them were famed for having holy, ordinary marriages. They all had unusual marriages, or they are saints because they had otherwise unusual lives. Why aren’t there any saints who are saints because of their ordinary, holy marriages? Does this say anything about the Church’s view of marriage?

These are among the questions we explore in this week’s episode of the Jimmy Akin Podcast!
