    This volume contains seven of Austin Woodbury’s texts concerning the themes of the Family, Politics, Education and Formation. The first tackles the question: “Who has the right to determine and to provide the means of education, especially to the young?” The second refutes four objections against the Catholic Church’s law that Catholic parents choose a school to provide a Catholic education for their child, and identifies the root cause of these objections. The third identifies the nature and purpose of education, especially regarding physical education, sex instruction, co-education, religion in education, and the formation of character. The fourth explains the importance of piety and religion. The fifth identifies the means for obtaining maturity in the Christian life. The sixth identifies the two fundamental truths required for a correct political theory. And the seventh offers insights into the three forms of Capitalism and a corrective for the current situation in Western economies.

    When someone enters the Church they do so through her Baptismal Rite. During this beautiful ceremony, among other things, the baptismal candidate professes the Creed (or in the case of infant baptism, the God Parents do so on their behalf). By this profession the candidate is acknowledging they are accepting the faith of the Church. As Joseph Ratzinger (i.e., Pope Benedict XVI) says, in doing so they enter into something greater than themselves. So, what is the Creed? Where did it come from, and how are we to understand its articles? In this talk Andrew Wood answers these and many other questions concerning the this beautiful statement of Christian belief: the Creed.

    Why do Catholics 'believe in Mary'? Many people are somewhat confused about the role of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, in the New Testament. In this talk, Andrew draws deeply from Scripture to show the Old Testament roots of what the New Testament writers say about Mary. Andrew shows us how Mary is therefore understood to be the new Eve, the new Ark of the New Covenant, and the new Queen Mother of the newly restored Davidic Kingdom. This is truly a fascinating talk!

    Does God actually exist? If so, is our knowledge of God's existence merely a matter of opinion or can it be proved? If God's existence can be proved how is it done? All of these important questions and more are answered by Andrew in this talk by using the philosophy of Saint Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274).

    What is at the very heart of all our temptations? In this talk Andrew looks at the temptation Adam received in the Garden of Eden, at the dawn of time; the temptation of Israel to worship the Golden Calf after their Exodus from Egypt; Jesus' temptations in the wilderness at the beginning of his public ministry; and Jesus temptation in the Garden of Gethsemane prior to his passion and crucifixion.

    Why do we have the three Sacraments of Christian Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist? In this talk Andrew takes us through the Catechism of the Catholic Church regarding these three sacraments. By virtue of receiving these sacraments the Christian has entered into a new mode of existence, so that, with St Paul, the baptised can truly say, "It's now no long I that live, but Christ who lives in me" (Gal 2:20).
