    I very much enjoy these videos about the Catholic church.

  2. Kathy Crosas says:

    Are mortal sins forgiven? If so, do people who have committed a mortal sins still go to hell?

    1. Corinne M. says:

      Simple. God knows that in their heart they are not truly repetant of the sin. They are insincerely asking for forgiveness. St. Pio could actually sense people in the confessional like this and would throw them out.
      A person must be truly contrite and THEN ask for forgiveness through confession. Then they must intend to do all they can to change and not committ that sin again. They must do the penance they are given by the priest. Without these, the sin cannit be forgiven.

  3. This is a sincere topic. I love comedy but I did not choose to watch the podcast to listen to the jokes. None of them are funny or clever. It’s self indulgent and it struck me on the only other time I watched one of these is that it seems to be about the personalities first and the topic subservient to that. You only need the preist and the compare and get to the topic. Be funny on your own time

        Rude response. Even if the guy above is too serious (if that is possible when discussing everlasting torment) your response was immature.

      2. Red beard says:

        I agree with the Talk show

    1. Kris Britt says:

      Yes, they need to cut to the chase

    2. Phillip says:

      Jesus said he is the high priest of our confession.
      We are to confess our sins to him in order to obtain forgiveness .
      No amount of Hail Marys or penance can set you free.
      The blood of Jesus sets us free.
      Yes we need to be contrite but by saying that we need to earn our forgiveness is not biblical.
      Read the bible for yourself and form a relationship with God through Jesus .
      Don’t rely on another man to bridge the gap .
      Jesus wants us to go through him.

    3. Dorothy Miller says:

      I TOTALLY agree with Anthony Barber….This topic is very serious! They are always joking too much. It can be a turn off with people who want to hear the Catholic version.

  4. Robin Sellers says:

    The question that “What is the Hell like according to people who have seen it?” In my view, I thought the speakers have expressed the general understanding of hell by examining the versions of each mystic saints in detail. As we all know that hell is very scary topic for all of us who believe in God. That means talking about it one has to use any possible means he/she thinks is good enough to convey the scary message to their audiences without scaring them to death 💀 . Here I’m not trying to defend the speakers. Let’s say for example, a father or a mother who tries to explain a difficult topic or sad news to their children, how would they present that scary message to their kids? Will they present it with a negative emotion such as fear with frightening look on their faces or will they just present it with a positive emotion such as calmness and smiling attention although it is difficult? I may be wrong, but I will leave it for audience members to decide. Additionally, in the presentation we have also learned that the four mystic saints were almost scared to death 💀 during their mystical experience with the vision of hell, but the Omnipotent and Omniscient God had helped them (the saints) to endure the terrible vision of hell until the end. Perhaps, this could be the reason why the speakers have used some kinds of jokes to deescalate any fear that may arise from the scary talks on Hell topic.
    Well, some may argue that in the letter of St. Paul to Philippians (2:12), St. Paul states that “workout your salvation with fear and trembling”. And I agree with that because fear of the Lord is very important things for us to do. As it is stated in Proverbs 1:7 that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fool despise wisdom and instructions”. In Matthew 10:28, Jesus says “do not fear those who kill the body, but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear Him Who can destroy both soul and body in the hell”. There are so many Biblical chapters and verses that talk about the fear of Lord and I absolutely agree with that. In other words, I don’t have any questions or doubts about the fear of the Lord at all.
    Again, this doesn’t mean that the speakers don’t have any fears of the Lord. The speakers do fear the Lord and they also fear the hell like any one of us would, but they have just chosen to present their talks on hell with the calmness and smiling faces to deescalate fear that may result from the presentation. In other words, they have just presented the difficult topic of hell in the same way any caring father or mother would present a sad news to their little ones. I may be wrong and I will accept any constructive criticism to my comment on this Catholic Talks Show!

    I have to wonder if some of the people commenting actually understand the audience for this podcast….

    1. Frances says:

      I don’t need so much “ humor “ I’d rather have facts about hell and then balance via the kind promises of God. I hardly ever hear homilies on hell. It’s a reality and I wish our priests would discuss it.

  7. Patricia Arbaugh says:

    Please give these three great devout Catholic guys the credit they deserve!! They are delivering a message from Jesus to us……are you listening?…Guess not from from your comments. This show is a blessing….wake up!

  8. Ashly says:

    This was awesome, informative, and hilarious. I appreciate the humor and the information. So glad this was my first episode. Cant wait to listen to more! God Bless.

  9. Tyron says:

    Hi all
    This was a brilliant podcast for me. I have watched a few videos (not all) and find the delivery to be excellent.
    For those that need clarity please look at the description
    ”The Catholic Talk Show is a brand new show and podcast. Featuring Ryan DellaCrosse, Ryan Scheel, and Fr. Rich Pagano, the show is hilarious, entertaining, and informative!”
    Humour is part of the show.

  10. Brandon says:

    With some of these comments it is no wonder people think that we as Catholics are “sticks in the mud”. Great job on the show guys. Love the humor and the topics. Keep up the good work.

  11. Andrea says:

    Hi Guys,
    If hell is the last stop what happens to those who are truly repentant in hell, there is no more hope of redemption or forgiveness? When Jesus died he spent 3 days in Hell, which always upset me and confirms there is a place called Hell, but why did he go there other than to offer redemption? Hell to me is the absence of God. Just think how empty you would feel without the presence of God within you. That to me is even more frightening than Dante’s visions. More frightening than the visions of saints.

    By the way, Satan only works for himself. He is the ultimate malignant narcissist.

    God bless us all, and may we all stay out of hell.
