Some in the Catholic Church address "lower goods" while ignoring "higher goods". "Doing" good means tending to ALL goods, in harmony. But some feed the poor, but fail to lead them to Jesus Christ. They address the family, but fail to orient the family to God. Tending one Good and ignoring another is pointless
In this first episode of Showing Up Catholic, Vickie gives a perspective on Peter's answer to Jesus' question "Who do you say I am?". She gives some interesting background regarding where this event occurred and discusses the Rock on which Jesus builds his Church and what it means to say the Gates of Hell will not prevail against it.
Vickie is talking about the authority of the Church in this episode. She talks about relying on the Church's ability to interpret herself "in keeping with the whole". She talks about understanding Vatican II within this context and having confidence in the Church's understanding of it rather than our own.
