This is the second part of my two part series on the Mass. The Mass is everything for Catholics and so, it is important for us to get an understanding of what we are doing and what is happening at the altar. If you want to learn more, go out and get a copy of “The Spirit of the Liturgy” by Pope Benedict XVI
Yesterday was World Vocation Sunday. A group of friends of mine came to my parish to conduct my Confirmation retreat. Today we did an interview about their vocations, the order and the call to Religious Life. The Sisters are young, vibrant and full of love for their vocations. This is a great podcast! Maybe you can burn a copy and give it to a young woman who might have a vocation.
Today is the feast of St. Joseph the Worker. We talk about the miraculous stairway in the Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe, New Mexico. We also begin our first part of a two part series on the Mass. It is almost like those old science classes, but today, we begin disecting the Mass. Please – vote for us at Podcast Alley!!!
I’m back! Sorry for the long delay. Lent, Holy Week, Easter and Divine Mercy were really busy. Today’s show continues with a talk from my Lenten series on Liturgy. “The Power of Posture & Active Participation at Mass”. This was a great talk given by a friend and parishioner of mine – Laurie Biszko. We are a bit longer than normal, but it is well worth it.Most our Lenten series talks were based on a book by Pope Benedict XVI “The Spirit of the Liturgy”. I highly recommend it. It is a very slow reader. You may have to re-read parts, but it will give you the thought of our Holy Father and where the Liturgy is headed in the future.
On Divine Mercy Sunday, we had a great celebration. We had about 500 people present. The day began with Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament at 11:30 am, at 3:00 pm the Blessed Sacrament was reposed, a talk and healing service was given by Eileen George, founder of Meet-the-Father Ministry. Following the healing service, I once again exposed the Blessed Sacrament for the Divine Mercy Chaplet and Benediction. Following, there were 6 Priests hearing Confessions and a reception in our church hall. In this VideoCast, we have the Divine Mercy Chaplet and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.
