Here is a very good talk we found on moral theology given by Fr William Smith in the mid 1980s for the Archdiocese of New York.
Msgr. Smith was a great Moral Theologian and teacher at St. Joseph's Seminary in the US.
What we liked about the talks is that not only did Fr William take you step by step through catholic moral theology but also took time to explain and provide examples of how some modern ideas have gone astray and what to look out for.
There are 8 talks which might seem long but please note that Fr William goes into details, providing examples thus allowing one to get a better understanding of the complexity of moral theology. We've viewed the talks once and are starting to watch them again...hope you find them as educational and insightful as we have...
Fr Smith died January 24, 2009 at the age of 69.
Fr Triglio Jr says "Smith was a brilliant scholar, moral theologian and seminary professor (St. Joseph, Dunwoodie)...Dry wit, Smith was the quintecential faithful son of the Church. Loyal to the Magisterium and obedient to the Roman Pontiff, he never diluted what he taught for the sake of political correctness....A modern day Aquinas when it came to moral theology".

Below is a short video by Fr Barron about the wedding banquet.
Fr Barron makes the listener aware that reading the Bible requires some understanding. Taking the Bible literally may not be what the author intended.
The Wedding Banquet parable, taken with the insight provided by Fr Barron, is intriguing and challenging to us in today's world.
