Diving Deeper

1. In the episode Libby says that when Jesus walked the Earth he taught about love, forgiveness, and the value of human lives. Who are some examples of people that live these out today?

 

2. Kai and Libby mention that Catholics were the first to open hospitals and universities, and even promote science and discovery. What do you think motivated them to do this? How do these things express the faith?

 

3. Kai quotes author G.K. Chesterton, who said “Catholic doctrine and discipline may be walls; but they are the walls of a playground.” Do you agree with this? Which Church teachings are hard for you? Why?
