We released a new Insights video with Fr. Jurgen Liias, who shared how his liberal view of Scripture as an Anglican priest was transformed as he made his way into the Catholic Church.

And on the latest Deep in Scripture podcast, Marcus Grodi and Mike Peters looked at 2 Thessalonians 2:15 and Paul’s discussion of the importance of tradition.
