One of ETWN’s longtime hosts, Fr Mitch Pacwa, interviewed Fr Andrew Pinsent, co-author of the Evangelium catechetical course on EWTN Live Wednesday 27th July.
The interview examined the approach of the course, which is published by CTS and available here and the general challenges and opportunities for the New Evangelisation, including the relationship of faith and science.
Fr Andrew outlines how his work in advertising before he became a priest has taught him to apply the same techniques when presenting the faith, making it attractive and comprehensible. He also points out that the faith can appeal to both sides of the brain: the left being our more mechanistic half and the right is more responsive to music, images and such like. Since Catholicism is based around the Incarnation, Fr Andrew argues, presentations of the faith must appeal to the physical as well as the intellectual side of man.
It will be repeated on EWTN on Sunday 4am ET (9am UK).
CTS is delighted that its products are being used increasingly across the world in support of our shared goal to spread the riches of the Catholic Faith.
