Well, here’s what I said in response to Ed, a recent caller to my “Open Line” radio broadcast (Thursdays from 3-5 p.m. ET). He also had doubts about the bodily Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, so we talked about that as well. To listen, click here, or click the image.


If you’d like to acquire a copy of my book on the communion of saints, Any Friend of God’s Is a Friend of Mine, I’d suggest to go first to your local Catholic bookstore. If you don’t have one near you, you can get the book here.


Here are some additional, popular-level resources on these subjects:


Any Friend of God’s Is a Friend of Mine

Immaculate Conception and the Assumption  

How to Argue for Mary’s Assumption


Assumptions About Mary

Saints Preserve Us
