The Catholic Herald Podcast: Merely Catholic with Gavin Ashenden

In the seventh podcast of the Merely Catholic series, Dr Gavin Ashenden talks to Ralph Martin about the ‘all-out civil war’ that has broken out in the Catholic Church largely between those who wish to accommodate contemporary mores and those who believe the Church must hold fast to the teaching of two millennia.

Dr Martin, an esteemed U.S. theologian and author of the 2020 book The Church in Crisis: Pathways Forward, predicts that the time is drawing near when bishops will increasingly conclude that they can no longer stay silent and will begin to take sides in a struggle which goes right to the heart of the Church’s mission and purpose.
