Default Stump Your Fellow Listeners!

We present our "Who Wants to be an Apologist?" game show about once a quarter. And it's our crack staff of apologists who come up with the questions we ask our listeners.

But, if you could forumlate a question for that show, what would it be?

Go ahead and suggest questions on this thread that you feel would be good to use on our game show broadcasts.

Jerry

How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

Assuming angels dance, here's my answer:

In the Summa Theologica, prima pars, q. 52, a. 1, St. Thomas Aquinas says angels can be in a place, not as bodies, but by "application of the angelic power in any manner whatever to any place." Further, in article 3 of that same question, St. Thomas shows that there can only be one angel in one place, since the angelic power is an immediate cause, and two complete causes cannot be the causes immediately of one and the same thing. Assuming the head of a pin is one place, only one angel at a time could dance on that head. However, being matter and indefinitely divisible, we might say there are an indefinite number of places on the head of a pin, and therefore an indefinite number of angels could be dancing on the pin head.

Of what religious order was Martin Luther a member?

Was it...

a) Benedictine
b) Franciscan
c) Jesuits
d) Augustinian

(By the way, I was a contestant on 'Who Wants to Be an Apologist?' about two and a half years ago. I got four out of five and got tripped up on a question about Blaise Pascal and the heresy to which he subscribed near the end of his life.)

Cite the origins of the quote "dunghills covered with snow" often attributed to Martin Luther.

You didn't fall flat on your face! You knew more about the dates most of the books were written than I did (I just knew the one I asked about).

To actually say something on topic:
How can the connotations of the words anamnesis (Greek) and zikaron (Hebrew) be used to explain remembrance of Christ in the Eucharist?

Who wrote this on the Eucharist would be a good one:

"Take note of those who hold heterodox opinions on the grace of Jesus Christ which has come to us, and see how contrary their opinions are to the mind of God. . . . They abstain from the Eucharist and from prayer because they do not confess that the Eucharist is the flesh of our Savior Jesus Christ, flesh which suffered for our sins and which that Father, in his goodness, raised up again. They who deny the gift of God are perishing in their disputes"

None. That is, if you consider sacraments that may have taken place BEFORE his ordination :-P

Wifes can pass on. Converts. Eastern rites... the question is too riddled with conditions.

Before his ordination he is not a priest. Thus, as priest, he cannot perform a marriage.
