Why are Catholic Churches filled with so many images? The First Commandment would seem absolutely to forbid the making of any kind of representation of men, animals, or even plants: "Thou shalt not have strange gods before me. Thou shalt not make to thyself a graven thing, nor the likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, nor of those things that are in the waters under the earth. Thou shalt not adore them, nor serve them" (Ex., xx, 3-5). Listen to the straightened out record on sacred images.
On each program of “Setting the Record Straight” you will hear another fascinating yet neglected story from two thousand years of magnificent achievements of the Catholic Church. Historical Apologist Charles Coughlin presents these intriguing stories based upon respected and authoritative historical sources. Misinformation and disinformation about the earthly work of the Catholic Church is corrected. “Setting the Record Straight” will quench the thirst of Catholics who want to hear true stories explaining their glorious heritage.
