Marcus welcomes former Episcopal priest Fr. Eric Bergman, currently a Catholic priest in the Diocese of Scranton, PA. Marcus and Fr. Eric discuss the Sacrament of Marriage as a model of the Church, as well as the roles of husbands and wives and Christ and His Mystical Body, the Church. Often a controversial set of verses, Fr. Eric discusses why the awesome unfolding of this verse was pivotal to strength of his marriage, his rejection of contraception, and, ultimately, his conversion to the Catholic Church.
Text of the Scripture verses: Ephesians 5:1-2, 21-33
***Note: On May 8, 2012, the St. Thomas More Society purchased its own property and became St. Thomas More Catholic Parish, the first Parish of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of Saint Peter, with Fr. Bergman as the U.S. Ordinariate’s first Priest, under the auspices of the Apostolic Constitution “Anglicanorum Coetibus.” The new website is now www.stmscranton.org, and details about the congregation’s journey into the Catholic Church are available at these two pages on the parish website:
